Atlanta Falcons fans are loving it. Tommy Tuberville-backers are loving it. And a lot of Arkansas fans are torn over it.
Bobby Petrino’s admission yesterday that he wrecked his motorcycle while riding with a 25-year-old woman he’d just hired into his football program leaves some fans defending their coach — he’s winning games, after all — and others ready to hurl their Bibles at him.
Below is a quick look at what’s being written about the topic this morning:
1. As you already know, Petrino has been placed on paid leave.
2. The coach could be in violation of the university’s policy on sexual harrassment.
3. Here is Petrino’s two paragraph statement from last night in its entirety.
4. Assistant head coach and linebackers coach Taver Johnson — the newest member of the Razorback staff — has been put in charge of the program for the time being.
5. The University of Arkansas has “a public relations nightmare” on its hands.
6. Here’s the official police report.
7. Dennis Dodd of CBSSports.com says Petrino’s career should not survive because he will no longer be able to recruit.
