After starting the season 2-7, things are only going to get worse for Bobby Petrino and the Louisville football program.

According to a report by Louisville radio host Mark Ennis, 20 players have requested paperwork to initiate a transfer from the team.

Ennis followed it up with an update from the athletic department, who disputes the high number of potential transfers.

“An athletic department representative contacted me and disputes that Louisville has had this many football players request transfer paperwork,” he said. “I stand by my earlier report, but in the interest of full disclosure Louisville denies it.”

Former Under Armour All-American and son of former Wildcat standout Craig Yeast, Russ Yeast, announced he was transferring from the University of Louisville just two days ago. Freshman quarterback Jordan Travis also announced he would transfer last week.

Louisville also lost commitments from their highest-rated 2019 recruit in Austin Griffin, three-star offensive lineman Jamari Williams, and three-star defensive end Kristian Varner.

There is no way Bobby P makes it out of this season as Louisville’s football coach.

    We all know the promises Petrino had to make the the UofL before they would ‘re-hire’ him. He can’t quit, he can’t leave, he can’t elect to go coach a pro team, basically…he’s locked to Louisville. However, if Louisville elected to fire Petrino, then that’s OK. Petrino may be losing, and having players quit, and not recruiting for a reason. Looks like he may have figured out how to get out of Louisville, alive, and without having to pay back a dime.

    Dude never should have been rehired. It was both lazy and arrogant on part of Jurich. Epic screw up. I sure hope they don’t fire him before 11-24, UK’s last home game

      I’m assuming that’s a sarcastic joke about it being UK’s last home game because it is at Louisville. If so, that’s a good one. Haha

      It will be UK final home game because the stadium will be 3/4 blue. The team and the fans have given up, and its glorious to watch.

    I know he’s at Louisville and makes it worse but I truly can’t stand that guy. He’s the definition of a jerk.

    Maybe Russ Yeast would consider transferring to UK??? It’s where he should have been in the first place.

      I saw a post saying that it is unlikely, but I do not see why. We are losing tons in the defensive backfield next year and he could make a huge impact. Forget what happened during his recruitment!! He needs to come home!!!!

    I am not a Louisville fan but I don’t wish this kind of failure on any Ky school and no matter how bad some of their fans are it’s still more honorable to take the high road. I have family that went there and still teach there. I want all Ky schools to kick butt as long as it’s not against UK. This is sad for their fans, the students and the athletes. Maybe they will learn to hire a high character coach next time.

    What’s sad is that UofL is probably stuck with Patrino for one more year because of his huge buyout.

    If Louisville was smart (real stretch here) they would view the buyout as an investment towards the Brand of Cardinal Football.
    Petrno should be terminated, the sooner the better for the football program. They also need to fire his staff and anyone internally that supported the football program.
    All of this was put in play by that criminal Jurich, and has cost Louisville way more than any sports building would ever cost.
    However, if it were I, I would make that SOB coach to the end of his contract, and make him even less desirable as a coach, at any level, where he would be so toxic, he could never be touched by anyone remotely associated to football at any level.
    I am not a Louisville fan, I am a Commonwealth of Kentucky fan, and people like Petrino makes all of us look stupid.
    I hope like hell we crush them in Louisville, where everybody in the Stadium boos him all game long.
    BTW, where is ScorpioCard, the big Petrino lover?

    If only we played a horrible Loserville this week with all that frustration, and all that anger, being dumped in our wanna be pimp drug dealing neighbor’s own back yard. Oh wait never mind we’re playing our ugly neighbor with that horrible orange spray tan who likes to make weirdo phone calls to women, cheat on his wife, and cover up harassment claims to the south.
