Bobby Petrino had an affair. He also lied to his boss and hired his mistress and tried to cover-up who was with him during a motorcycle crash… but the big news is he had an affair! Oooooh. Scandalous.
And that’s why there’s still a big dig going on for any document tied in any way to Petrino’s ouster from Arkansas. Late yesterday, the University of Arkansas released 300 pages from the personnel file of its ex-coach following a Freedom of Information Act request. A full 131 of the pages were added during the review that eventually led to the coach’s ouster earlier this month.
In the notes we basically learn three things:
* Jessica Dorrell was more forthcoming than Petrino.
* Petrino tried to deny everything right up until the end.
* AD Jeff Long was skeptical of Petrino from the beginning of the process and he didn’t find many of the coach’s answers to his questions to be believable.
Aside from that, most of the info that’s being talked about today regards the affair – when did it start, when did it end, did it ever really end, etc. And that’s where I lose interest. When Petrino first kissed Dorrell doesn’t matter nearly as much to this writer as does the fact that he hired the woman and gave her $20,000 in gifts.
The AP’s version of the story actually includes this bit:
“At one point last October, Petrino and Dorrell were sitting in a car, eating lunch and talking and ‘she said are you going to kiss me,’ according to Long’s notes of his April 10 conversation with Petrino.”
Ah, important to know.
We said we’d cover the news of this story when it first broke. For soap opera coverage, you can find plenty of other outlets. Paul Finebaum, for example, has had a bevy of sex experts and urologists on to discuss ED and sexual addictions. Ha-ha. Several lives are ruined so let’s all laugh about it. (Until of course we’re the ones caught with our flies open and then we have to beg for forgiveness and mercy and understanding.)
Eventually this story was going to bring out the gawker in all of us. That’s happening now.
We know why Petrino was fired. We know why Dorrell is gone, too. Sorry, but I don’t care to know how many dinners or evenings the two shared together before were exited from the UA campus.
