God’s way of telling college football it has too much money…

… is Bobby Petrino’s new contract.

I’d say that’s insane, but it’s just the way they roll these days.

    I smile and think of this pic every time I see his name.

    Think of all the motorcycles he could buy with that. Certainly enough for each and every girlfrie..er…intern working “under” him.

    Meh. $4.3 million a year won’t event pay off my credit cards.

    Apparently, they found out he’d been courted by Auburn again. Secretly, of course.

    I’m a capitalist…………..but this is obscene.

      And we wonder where the pressure to win at all costs come from…imagine if he has a couple of really bad years. Sooner or later this will be seen for the insanity that it is.

    If there are “personal behavioral standards” called for in that contract, ULou has gambled little. Bobby must either become much better behaved, or sneakier. I’m betting on the latter.
    I think I could behave myself for that kind of money.

    Go 10-3 (twice) in the SEC and get fired.

    Go 8-5 in the ACC and get a raise and a seven year extension.

    What a country.

    Piglet makes 4.35 million? Wuh!


  10. Go Dawgs!

    $4.3 million a year. And what the hell has Bobby Petrino ever won? As near as I can tell, the only thing he’s ever won was a 2006 Big East title and Orange Bowl at Louisville. Other than that… what? A Cotton Bowl at Arkansas? What is it about this guy that people are so crazy about?

      He knows how to survive a bike crash?

      Damn if I know…I can’t think of a much better gig than a CFB head coach…do well and you make millions…do poorly and you make millions…look at Richt as he went to Miami for $4 million and ADGM sends him off with another $4 million (may be getting that over time)…our old coach picks up $8 million for underachieving…ain’t this country great? 😉

        It’s just because there’s so many law school grads, when they try to find work they decide to be an agent and we get lawyers who exist solely to ratchet up what everyone gets paid. Maybe we should start an employment agency for educators/teachers. When they start fighting over each other maybe pay will go up in education, then I could go back and do what I always wanted to do.

    Don’t worry, we have the money.

    Besides, it’s a good idea to spend for the program you want, not the one you have.
