Dammit! he was the best football coach we’ve ever had. He’ll want to start over and make a new beginning somewhere else. I just hope his family and him are able to get through this okay.

I just searched for her pic. Nice blond lady. NOT Guilty!
I don’t understand all the uproar with this as I have taken ladies on my bike, not my wife, with no problems. Sheesh!

His family? He should have thought of his family while he was cheating on them. This will probably break up the family, but thats okay as long as he is good coach, we know that football trumps morals and family after all.

I love the Hogs and even though I wasn’t sold on him in the beginning, I love what he’s done with them. I hate to see this.

And Leach is already taken. Damn!

You should have known it was going to end like this with someone with the low ethics of Petrino.

Use the “nuts and sluts” defense. It’s practically an Arkansas tradition.
