Trust is a wonderful thing.

Apparently this was said without a trace of irony.

I hope Jurich and Petrino start out their presser looking at each other and bursting into uncontrollable laughter.  And then leave.

    Oh gag a maggot.

    Oh how heartwarming! I love it when relationships are built and thrive on trust. Maybe they will make a movie about this and show it on LMN.
    It seems to me that Jurich should be holding all the cards. UL should eat Petrino’s lunch on this “deal”…But…we know how big “trust” is amongst this crowd. It’s a beautiful thing.

    I bet John Swofford is so proud of his newest member..

    I know this is off-topic but, talk about heartwarming, the Dawgs stunning upset of Mizzou last night after Coach Fox lost his dad was truly a great moment.

      Wow, I missed that. Thanks for alerting me. That IS a nice story. Coach Fox seems like a good guy and I’m surprised he hasn’t had more success.

    ““In coaching and education, the most important thing is your student, your player,” Fox said of a lesson his dad taught him.

  6. Can’t take credit for this, saw it on Twitter last night, but how great would it be if Petrino just dropped all pretenses and made his entrance to the first presser like this?

    I equate this to CMR leaving and UGA rehiring Donnan. :-O

      Or Mark Fox leaving and UGA rehiring Jim Harrick.


      • Did Petino have NCAA issues? If not, then Tubby might be the better choice for that analogy.


      • No One Knows You're a Dawg

        Harrick gave a $300 Target gift card to one of his players and his son gave A’s to everyone in a basketball PE class, even if they didn’t attend.

        Looking at what’s happened in college sports since then, it looks like very small potatoes (and I agreed at the time with firing him). If it were to have happened now, I’d want UGA fighting the NCAA tooth and nail.

    So, does anyone else hold out hope the Jurich hired Petrino simply so he could fire him at the worst possible time?


  9. uglydawg

    They should have went after O’Leary,,but GT will do that when CPJ is gone.

    What’s a good over/under number for years of service before Petrino “pursues his options” elsehwere?

    I say 5 years but that seems a bit genrous.

    Louisville may have just hired the NEXT University of Michigan coach.
