Bobby Petrino skips meeting about Tom Jurich’s future

Louisville’s boosters and coaches continue to rally around Tom Jurich with one notable exception: Bobby Petrino.

This afternoon, UofL called a meeting of all of the head coaches and senior administrators and, according to 840 WHAS’ Will Clark, all were present and unanimous in their support of keeping Jurich on as athletic director…except Bobby Petrino. Petrino was mysteriously absent from the meeting, supposedly to prepare for Thursday night’s game vs. N.C. State. Normally, that would be a somewhat plausible excuse; however, when you consider that if Jurich is ousted, Petrino’s buyout is cut in half, from $8.5 million to $4.25 million in 2018, it doesn’t seem like such a coincidence, does it?

With some major jobs potentially on the horizon, like Tennessee, Petrino’s absence at today’s meeting speaks volumes. As he’s shown time and time again, he wouldn’t hesitate to jump ship for a better opportunity, and for once, given all the crap that currently surrounds the University of Louisville, would you blame him?

    After last week, I imagine Petrino foresees an LSU-UT bidding war for his services.

      Also, won’t Lamar leave after this year? Urban sure flew the coop after Tebow graduated.

    “unanimous in their support of keeping Jurich”

    Good to see they’re all learning their lesson and endeavoring to clean the program up by supporting keeping the guy who oversaw scandal after scandal.

    How much is Adidas paying them to support Jurich?

      Does ACC stand for Any Cost Conference? When you look at that conference it all makes so much more sense now.

    and now Pitino is saying they breached his contract by placing him on leave. What a circus.

    I thought the river flowing past downtown Louisville was the Ohio, not DeNile?

    Wonder if they know how much the bargaining stage is going to cost them?

    Don’t piss off the shoe companies

    Cards fans and coaches are thinking about the short term and not the long term #AtAllCosts

    I had no idea TJ’s daughter Haley was hired by Adidas just months before the $160 million/10 yr contract was signed. That couldn’t possibly be a conflict of interest…..could it?

    You know what Louisville? Go ahead and keep Jurich. I look forward to reading about your next scandal in a few months. All the salacious scandals have been quite entertaining for me as a Kentucky fan.

      Yeah how much fun would it be to watch little brother do things the right way? It’s like having the Clampets living next door.

      Yes, there’s a chance they might not get the death penalty! They better take action to guarantee it happens!

    How much longer is North Carolina gonna’ skate….they are probably loving every bit of this scandal because now it will take every resource of the ncaa to investigate the endless allegations that will be coming up. The ncaa needs to climb out of bed with UNC and make them a PRIORITY and finally put the screws to them…..absolutely ridiculous they’ve avoided any penalties and that this is still ongoing.

    Keeping Jurich on board would essentially be Louisville daring the NCAA to give them the death penalty. I hope the NCAA grows a pair and absolutely annihilates Scandal U.
