Either there was more to this story, past problems or the firestorm was just too much
Or just one university president with the guts to do the right thing. How could he allow Petrino to continue to coach, knowing the example he'd set for the young men in his charge? Sure, he hired the guy, but this is how you make up for it.
Sucks for Razorback fans because they would have been a contender this year.
My guess is that if we ever see Bobby Petrino again it won't be anywhere near division 1-A. Or whatever they call it now.
