    Arkansas put football coach Bobby Petrino on paid leave Thursday after he failed to disclose he had been riding with a female employee half his age when his motorcycle skidded off the road over the weekend — an accident that prompted him to apologize for that and for what he described as a "previous inappropriate relationship."
    Athletic director Jeff Long announced the decision at a late-night press conference and said he had no timeline in determining Petrino's future with the Razorbacks.
    "I'm at the beginning of the review. I don't know what I'm going to find," Long said. "I hope to have a resolution soon. I certainly don't have all the answers here tonight, as we meet. But again, I have an obligation and responsibility to obtain the information and then act appropriately on that information."

    Well, she just couldn't resist Petrino's crotch rocket. This is probably the best thing that ever happened to the swimming coach at Arkansas (her fiance). Better to catch her doing this stuff before he said I do. Everybody knew that this guys morals left something to be desired when he resigned from the Falcon's head coaching job with 3 games left in the season and lying to Arthur Blank shortly before taking the job at Arkansas (blessing in disguise). Now his wife will take him to the cleaners, what goes around comes around.

    Ah yes, I believe Shakespeare wrote about this in Othello when he mentioned "the beast with two razorbacks."

    I'm surprised Arkansas fired him.

    Do they go after Kirby Smart?

    I think it was due to the fact that he was slammin his coworker's fiance (one the swimming coaches). Yes he had a higher post but that could not have gone over with the athletic director. He seemed to have lied about it too.

    Per CNN

    The school's athletics director said Tuesday. Petrino's lack of candor about his "personal and professional relationship" with a female employee who was riding with him on a motorcycle that crashed earlier this month was key to the decision, Jeff Long told reporters.

    Warning: Conspiracy theory.

    Anyone else think that his wounds don't look like he was in a motorcycle crash? And how on earth does some chick riding on the back of a motorcycle not have any injuries after wiping out on a motorcycle? He's got a neckbrace and she has a Winnie the Pooh bandaid. That's it? C'mon, that doesn't happen. I bet the fiancee found out and went to town on Petrino's face with a croquet mallet.

    Exactly, I'm sure the Falcons owner looks back and thanks God that Petrino lied to him and left during the regular season. Good luck at some division 3 school Mr. Petrino, karma is a...
