Bobby Petrino is Louisville’s next head football coach until he leaves again

petrino-bike

According to several online reports, Bobby Petrino is leaving Western Kentucky University after one season to return to the University of Louisville as the Cardinals’ next head football coach. He will soon pack up his belongings and his floozies and hop on his blacked-out bruiser motorcycle for a northbound ride on I-65 to the Derby City, leaving Bowling Green behind like a one-night stand after volleyball practice. Tomorrow, a new era of Louisville football begins.

Petrino and Pitino, the two hornballs behind two of the last decade’s biggest college sports scandals, under one athletic department roof. It’s too good to be true, Kentucky fans. It’s too good to be true.

Louisville has reached a whole new level of sleaze. And we couldn’t be happier.

    Perfect hire for that scummy athletic dept.

    I’d respect UofLol and Jurich if they just came out and said, “We just want to win. We want to win at all costs. That’s why we made this hire.” Ok, fair enough.

    However, they will inevitably spin it with some b.s. and ultimately claim Petrino has integrity, morals, is reformed, yada yada yada and Jurich’s puppets will spew whatever he tells them, which will make them more of a joke than they already are.

    At least lots of national media is already making fun of them.

      UofL said this when they essentially canned me – and brought in former Kentucky coach Rick Pitino.

      Jurich, and all the fans, are whores for wins; prostituting the programs in the name of winning.

      It is especially important now not to lose mojo heading into the ACC and win now that we’ve moved on from the Metro now to a real conference in Basketball & Football.

      Pitino is 1-5 against UK since Cal arrived, UK leads the all time head to head series in basketball 31-15, meaning Kentucky has over TWICE as many wins in the rivalry as Louisville. Hell, UK even currently leads 14-12 all time against Louisville in football, and this isn’t even mentioning how Kentucky has 8 NCAA Basketball National Championships to UofLol’s 3, and won as many titles in a 16 year stretch (1996-2012) as Louisville has won in it’s entire program’s history.
      So, Louisville’s big brother, huh?
      Look, I know if you had any common sense you wouldn’t be a Card fan, but at least try not to embarrass yourself.

    This is the best coach UL could have gotten. They did the right thing by hiring him. I don’t know why everyone is so hung up on “he’ll leave after four years”. Who cares? You don’t think Mark Stoops is gonna leave Kentucky if Ohio State or Alabama or Florida St. comes calling? I’d rather have a coach that leaves after four years because he is super successful then have to fire a coach after four years because hes a failure (Joker). Either scenario your looking for a new coach, and every coach is gonna leave. WILLIE TAGGART LEFT WESTERN AFTER TWO YEARS!!! And he was an alumni who left the program for a terrible job in USF. So what make Petrino a bad guy and Taggart a good guy?



    • Well...
      2:24 pm January 8, 2014 Permalink

      “what make Petrino a bad guy and Taggart a good guy”…oh, I dunno…I’m gonna go with the fact that he gave his mistress a job at the university that employed him.

    Truly (no sarcasm) the best coach on the market. In fact, BETTER than the former coach.

    Makes perfect BUSINESS sense. Not ethical or moral sense. But great business sense.

    Petrino will continue to win at UL and win big, starting prolly with a W over UK unfortunately. In fact, it’s doubtful we’ll win against UL with him there. Petrino is THAT good.

    Actual comment from an idiot Louisville fan on my facebook. Thank God I’m not a Cardinal.
    “All coaches leave one way or another. I’ll take big wins for a long as I can get them. Seriously though, UK fans wouldnt care unless they were scared. i guess you remember that he averaged beting UK by 3 TDs while he was here and put the Cards in the Top 6 in the country twice. UK cant even be top 6 in the SEC East.”

      The reason we are LOL’ing at this, is because they completely went against this! UK, even with the dump that was it’s football program, did not go after him, even though his father said he was “very open to the UK job”. UL’s program is currently at a much better place then where UK’s was last year.

      It smells of serious desperation!!!!

How many of Charlies recruits will follow him to Texas, and how many great players parents want this scum bag in their living room telling them how he’s going to take care of their kid and teach them the true morals of life. What a stupid move by LOSERVILLE.

    please dont ever say that the pitino & petrino scandals are apart of “last decadeā€™s biggest college sports scandals”. so untrue. the U probe was arguably the biggest scandal ever…. until the penn state scandal broke. and there will probably (hopefully) never be another scandal as bad as penn state. and then if it had actually been investigated thoroughly the UNC scandal is arguably the biggest grades/academic scandal ever.
    so stop with the hyperbole, it only makes you look small. though, mentioning clint hurtt is another story…..
