The KSR Rumor Mill: Where in the World is Bobby Petrino?

No one handles a coaching search quite like Kentucky fans. With news that Bobby Petrino may be interested in the Kentucky job, fans are scouring Lexington for Petrino sightings, harkening back to our past coaching searches’ rumored horse farm purchases, private jet tracking numbers, “done deals,” and the infamous “Door” (long live Les Smith!).

In the interest of having some fun with all of this, here are some of the best FAKE RUMORS about Petrino’s where abouts today on Twitter:

Disclaimer: These rumors are 100% completely FALSE.

    Guys, this is no lie, I attended a seminar in Lexington last night on ‘How to Deal With Difficult People’, and Mitch, Dwayne Peevey, and Sandy Bell were ALL in attendance.

    Rumor is that he is in Vinnie Tatum’s ride w/ Karen Scypher crusing UK’s campus.

    I think this post is cheesy. Don’t know what good it does posting tweets from idiots that have no idea what they are talking about. Does kind of seem like KSR is trying to mock the idea of Petrino to UK, even though it would be by all accounts a slam dunk

    He’s not on UK’s sidelines yet and that is a BIG problem.

    This site is going to be completely shut off from UK Football after Petrino is hired.

    Forget Petrino! Go for Jay Gruden, OC for the Cincy Bengals! If Jay is hired, Jon could come and help be special assistant for the QBs at least!

    All, Communicate with Mitch directly and let him know we need Petrino. Email: [email protected] Twitter: @UKMitchBarnhart

    Let him feel the power of the #BBN. Get #PetrinotoUK trending



  16. Loosen up

    Some of you need to loosen up, its all in fun, just like when everyone was watching the door for Cal to come out of it. KSR gives good updates and lets you know when something happens. Yea
    Petrino could get UK back to winning, But don’t ever forget how he put UK down, Some of you would hire the Devil if we could win. If we get him we get him, But I also see Mitch looking at other top coaches, Money talks. So loosen up.

    To all those who think Kentucky fans (and fans of this site) only care about basketball, I find it interesting that the day before the tip off of the basketball season, with a team ranked in the top three, the two posts on this site with the most comments I’ve seen in a while (maybe ever) are the two Petrino posts, currently with 313 and 314 comments. I think that says (a) this fan base is interested in its football team and (b) Petrino is a name that moves the needle. Hire him now and put a big buy-out clause in the contract.

    If we do not hire Petrino we are out of our mind. A year ago he was the hottest coach on the planet. So what, he slept with an intern and got caught. We are not hiring for a Bible College. We are hiring to win football games. Go get him now!!!

    KSR is becoming more agenda driven than MSNBC. I’m starting to lose respect for this site. Here we stand with an opportunity to land the best available coach in the country, and KSR continues to ridiclue Bobby Petrino.

    #19. Amen. KSR needs to stop the drama with BP nad really look at how they can help garner his support. He is the best available coach available – and even at a discount.

    Petrino = bum. Loserville Pitino, learn your lesson BBN.
    Where in the world in Bobby Petrino? Anyone check out Italian restaraunts to see if he is with 15 second Rick Pitino.

    I bet you know nothing about his background.

    7, 9, 13, 19, 20 – “University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible” is KSR’s motto. It’s what makes it the most popular UK fan website. Lighten up. If Bobby Petrino really wants the KY job nothing this website does or doesn’t do will change that. The question is whether or not he truly wants this job or is just using it to get Auburn or Tennessee to move more quickly.

    Why does it seem Kentucky sports radio is mocking the idea of us hiring Bobby Petrino???
    Wonder what Matt jones and company have as priority in k fund????

    Don’t mock it… Embrace and pray it happens…
    He wins… Bottom

    26, 31, if by reading these comments you think that its not making fun of Bobby Petrino than I don’t know what to tell you. KSR is obviously against the idea. Nothing positive to date on the possibility.



  33. Tired of Stinking Say's
    4:34 pm November 8, 2012 Permalink

    You guys at KSR are not helping matters. We as fans are trying to let the UK higher ups know how strongly we want to win and that Bobby Petrino is the answer. We want to win and I think this is a unique chance for a bad program to get a proven coach. We may never have this chance again and now who ever else Barnhart brings in will have the shadow of “what if he’d hired Petrino?” if he doesn’t win quickly. Start preaching it brothers and help make it happen! Think how many listeners and on line hits you’d get during football if we were worth a crap.

    Does KSR work for Barney now? Geez….thanks for the help fellas. I’m sure your blogs and radio show will be strong when we have Cutclife roaming the sidelines in front of 28,000 fans each week. Great thinking guys and thanks.

    Rumor has it, Petrino is on campus watching the volleyball team practice…. It is suppose to be part of his incentive package. He is just going for a lil joyride around campus.

    I cant figure out what the big rush is for a football coach? We have been average for about 50 years now, and i am tired of it to but i wouldnt just jump on Petrino right out of the gate…. i worry that if we hire him and he wins 6-7 games next year some big program is going to say look at what he has done with UK lets go get him and he is going to leave and we are going to be left with nothing.. go young and go for the longrun….. i can take losing for a couple of more years if pays off hell after 33 years im kind of used to it.

    I could care less about Petrino’s baggage. He is one of the very few coaches who could turn Kentucky Football into a winner.

    Kentucky is in need of drastic changes. A Petrino hire at this time is exactly that drastic hire.

    And it will more than likely give Kentucky Football the edge it’s been seeking since Bear Bryant left.

    I just saw him at Wheeler’s Drug Store talking to Joe B. about using two Fullbacks at the same time. He later left on a Harley. I think we can do a lot better.

    NO, NO, NO to Bobby Petrino!!! If Barnhart thinks he’s going to fill Commonwealth stadium with my but by hiring this loser then he’s dead wrong…and I’ve been there every season for the last 25 years. Petrino is a snake and he’s left every program where he’s ever been in worse shape. If he’s hired…I’ll continue to follow basketball, but I’ll hand in my BBN card for football. Winning at all costs is not truly winning.
