I’ve got no idea why Bobby Petrino banned media coverage of Louisville’s spring game (paranoia? general dickishness? — you got me), but one local station had a good time mocking him for it.
Petrino will get back at them, no doubt. Next year, you’ll be able to attend the spring game. You just won’t be able to watch it from the stands.
Shaq Wiggins is the latest to discover that Bobby Petrino is a consummate dickhead.
Former Louisville cornerback Shaq Wiggins says he has a solid list of schools he’s considering as a graduate transfer, but his release from the Cardinals does come with restrictions.
Wiggins told ESPN on Thursday that Louisville coach Bobby Petrino restricted him from transferring to Kentucky, Mississippi State, Purdue, Notre Dame and Western Kentucky…
… Wiggins said he was most confused over the idea that he couldn’t transfer to Mississippi State. Wiggins said he assumed it was because former Louisville defensive coordinator Todd Grantham left the Cardinals for the same position at Mississippi State in January, but he couldn’t be for sure.
“When [Petrino] said Mississippi State, I was like, it had to be deeper than what it seems to be because Louisville doesn’t play Mississippi State,” Wiggins said. “It just so happened to be Mississippi State on there, once Coach Grantham left.
“I really don’t know what’s his state of thinking or why he chose to put Mississippi State on there. It’s something personal, but I have no idea why. It’s really not fair.”
Get in line, son. Get in line.
On second thought, Louisville AD Tom Jurich suspends an assistant coach for the bowl game and throws himself on the mercy of the ACC commissioner.
Best part there is the “Coach Petrino has been firm” bit. Sounds like somebody’s leaving himself an out in case it turns out Bobby hasn’t been entirely truthful about the matter.
I’m sure Swofford is the force behind Jurich’s change of heart. Better late than never, I suppose. Though it would still be nice to hear Jurich flatly apologize to Wake’s players on behalf of his coaching staff.
Wonder what this is all about…
Wake Forest is investigating how documents pertaining to its game plan might have ended up in Louisville’s hands before last Saturday’s game at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
“We are concerned that there was some type of security breach,’’ coach Dave Clawson said Tuesday. “I have shared it with Ron Wellman, and we’re doing everything we can to make sure all of our information and data is more secure moving forward.’’
Wellman, Wake Forest’s director of athletics, said Clawson told him of the possible breach on Friday, the day before the Deacons’ lost to the fifth-ranked Cardinals 44-12. Wellman said a member of Wake Forest’s traveling party found the documents at the stadium.
… although not as much as wondering why Petrino might feel the need to stoop to that in a game against Wake Forest.
Yeah, sure. Check’s in the mail, right?
UPDATE: If you want to do a denial, this is the way to do it.
So, it’s come to this.
Is the Pope Catholic?
The more interesting debate is which schools will be ready to talk to him after the season ends… and how big a check they’ll be ready to write.
Bobby Petrino has to issue a statement after his Twitter account liked a tweet from an adult content providing site.
