Bobby Petrino Reportedly To Be Hired Back To Louisville

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

You have to hand it to Louisville - they are taking the position that character only matters to losers.

I'm not going to spend much time on this except to detail a few pithy tweets.  I don't really feel like this means a lot to the University of Kentucky, except for those poor, misguided souls who wanted Kentucky to hire Petrino.  In the end, if Stoops doesn't win, we'll eventually find somebody who will.  Thank God it won't be Bobby Petrino.  Good riddance.

I find it incredibly droll that Louisville expounded at great lengths about the character of Charlie Strong.  So instead of going out and finding another guy like that, they hire the guy that deceived them twice, left them for the Falcons, where he took the high road and abandoned his team with only "it's been nice" notes in their lockers.  He then goes to Arkansas and hires his adulterous mistress as an athletics assistant.  He gets fired there and goes to Western Kentucky, where he spent less than one year as head coach.  This guy is the living, breathing definition of a football mercenary cad with a moral compass that points right at his crotch.

Now he's come full circle to Louisville, and there are going to be some UK fans upset we didn't hire this train wreck of a human being.  Louisville shows, as if it were actually necessary, their quality when it comes to personnel judgments:  The very lowest.  And some UK fans will wish we beat them to it.  Well, there's no accounting for taste, I guess.

It wasn't for UK. I'm just sayin'.

It is amusing for its abject hypocrisy.

We'll see.

How many second chances does this guy get?

A very fine question.

And with that, we now return you to your normal Mississippi St. game programming
