Bobby Petrino (Lover of Harleys and Volleyball Players)

    Louisville booster says school doesn’t have the money to buy out Bobby Petrino right now


    Louisville is coming off a game in which they were outscored 66-31 and allowed the second-most rushing yards in school history. They are 2-4 at the halfway mark of the 2018 campaign. The normally high-flying offense can barely move the football.

    All of which is to say, the fan base is very unhappy with Bobby Petrino. Just not enough, apparently, to open up the purse strings and send the embattled head coach packing.

    “The university is not in a position to buy him out,” Tom Meeker, a Louisville Athletic Association board member, told the Courier Journal.

    At issue: Petrino’s buyout has been pegged at roughly $14 million if he were fired after or during this season, to say nothing of the cost of getting rid of the rest of the current coaching staff. That figure is not too far off the $15.4 million owed to Texas’ Tom Herman or the $16 million amount owed to Oklahoma State’s Mike Gundy for some context.

    Perhaps of bigger concern for Louisville than the play on the field for the Cardinals is the fact that the slumping football team is causing sharp decreases in the amount being donated to the program. The Courier Journal reports that the school’s athletic administration fund is down more than two-thirds in the past year thanks to the hire of a new basketball coach and a settlement with former athletic director Tom Jurich. Donations are down considerably and there’s still construction debt and pending lawsuits to deal with as well.

    One reader comment was: Couldn’t they just leave the keys in a gassed up Harley out in front of his office with a willing Co-ed on the back?

    Kind of let things take care of themselves from that point……

    I'm not sure Louisville will have an Athletic Department after the NCAA is done with him.

    Oh who am I kidding. Louisville will go into full denial mode like Cryami and UNC did and get absolutely nothing.

    Is that why they could only afford $1,300 for a basketball player? I mean, Tai Streets could even afford $5,000.

    REVENGE GAME. Wake Forest running back Matt Colburn had the ultimate flex this weekend, dropping a career day on a coach who pulled a scholarship offer out from under his feet at the last minute.

    Negandhi corrected himself, adding that Colburn did actually have a scholarship at Wake Forest, I bet I'm sure that doesn't change how good this felt:

    t's a shame his revenge had to come against one of the kindest, most well-respected coaches in the business. I really hate to see high-character individuals like Petrino get embarrassed like that.

    Why doesn't Colburn rush for 200+ yards in every game?
    Does he only play well when he is motivated by something that affects him personally?
    So, he plays at 50% in all the other games?
    What about the team?

    I need answers!!!!!!

    Saw his picture in a thread today, and I forgot to share a story with BP.

    Visited with a customer from Little Rock this past spring. We talk about a great many things including Razorback football.
    Customer Rep looks at me and says, "We've heard from some pretty connected people that Bobby didn't show up looking that, because of a motorcycle accident. Her boyfriend beat the shit out of him."
    :slappy: Just had to share that.

    Still find it interdasting that the boyfriend ended up marrying her, but that's neither here nor there.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    The boyfriend may have laid hand on him before those pics, but that's clearly road rash.
