I’ve been sitting fairly quiet on this but considering the drubbing that Ohio State took over malicious NCAA violating tattoo abuse but at some point you just have to speak up. The Bobby Petrino story just keeps getting better and better. Long-time readers of this blog will remember my defense of Petrino as an outstanding man of character. All you need to do is ask Louisville fans and they will be quick to tell you how they feel about Petrino. And if the SEC wasn’t providing enough fodder, there are the Auburn players currently on trial for armed robbery.
But for now, let’s just stick to a solid round of “I Told You So” and score a laugh or two at the former Arkansas, Atlanta Falcons, 10 year contract breaking Louisville, wannabe Auburn interviewing coach.
We start out with the latest Deadspin report that along with an affair with his favorite motorcycle riding employee, Hugh…I mean Bobby Petrino also exchanged 200 or so text messages with former “Motorcycle Mania” bikini model and former GOP Young Republican starlet Alison Melder. (Wait, where did her picture go?!)
But the fun doesn’t stop there folks. Who can pass on the true cause of the motorcycle accident faithfully rendered in Taiwanese.(NSFW) (HT to Lost Lettermen)
Or maybe the newest scooter/motorcycle accessory to hit the streets of Fayetville (Via Twitter
Then of course are the just downright fears that there are more revealing texts to come. This from Arkansas Sports Reporter Robbie Neiswang’s twitter feed (Neiswang is going through the Petrino phone records).
I’m sorry folks, even thinking about it makes me shudder.
Finally, although I’m never one to spread rumors I’ll make an exception in this case. As the list of Petrno rumors grows longer and longer, my favorite has been the speculation as to how Petrino got so banged up in the motorcycle crash but his passenger, Jessica Dorrell, walked away unscathed. One theory is that Dorrell’s fiance forced Petrino off the road and proceeded to beat the crap out of him (see rumor No. 17 here).
So I leave it to you fans. Give us your best Bobby Petrino joke, thoughts or latest rumor on this upstanding leader of young men.
