Bobby Petrino Wins a National Award!

 

Tom Jurich likes to brag that he hires award-winning coaches and today he was proved correct. In GQ’s list of the 25 Sleaziest Figures in Sports, UL’s football coach Bobby Petrino made the Top 10. Nestled below the Clippers’ racist owner, a murderer, the head of Fifa Corruption and other notorious figures, sits the man that the University of Louisville decided could best represent them to the general public and the values their Athletic Department upholds. It couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch.

The rest of the top ten:

1. Donald Sterling
2. Aaron Hernandez
3. Sepp Blatter
4, Isiah Thomas
5. Chad Curtis
6. Tiki Barber
7. War Machine
8. Dana White
9. Lance Armstrong
10. Bobby Petrino

    Petrino truly is an awful, awful, awful human being. Like, really awful.

      Because he stomped your team with a powerhouse like Western?

    That list includes murderers, racists, corrupt people, woman abusers, etc. I’m guessing the Louisville football team under Petrino’s recruiting will see similar

    He also has football teams ranked in the top 10! Uk can’t manage to be ranked in the top 10 of the SEC. I imagine Cal was ranked #11 in that poll but we shall ignore that since he wins…

      Why are you gloating that UK can’t “manage” to be ranked in the top 10 of the SEC? A wide majority of the power five conference teams wouldn’t be ranked in the top 10 of the SEC. This includes Louisville.

      Doc – the CARDS would definitely be top 10 in the SEC this year. 1. Bama 2. Auburn 3. UGA 4. LSU 5. USCe 6. Ole Miss

      So that puts the CARDS right around 7th in the SEC. Please name 3 better teams in the SEC. I’ll hang up and listen…

      Most everyone on that list is accomplished in their field, that’s the only reason anyone puts up with their crap. They’re not gonna make a list of people no one’s ever heard of before. But you’re a troll on a rival fan site, so clearly you’re not going to understand things as obvious as this.

      That’s adorable that you think UofL could compete. I would take Florida, A&M, and Missouri over Louisville all day. Probably Tennessee or Miss. State too. I would have picked Arkansas but a former coach destroyed that team as he rode off into the pavement.

      Who exactly is Louisville’s quarterback this year? Last I heard, Abe Froman doesn’t have any eligibility left.

      Then why isn’t Loserville at least second in the ACC in FB, no way in top 10 in SEC.

    I haven’t actually seen the article but I’m told that they listed Calipari at #16.

      Yep but in two years when BP leaves again with another scandal UK will be ranked in the top twentyfive and moving up, count on it! GBB!!!

      Exactly. While I do not in the least support Sterling there is not way he is ahead of Hernandez…

    Shows you how f’d up of a society we are when a multiple murderer is second on the list behind a guy who made a racial comment in private but has made numerous young black men multi-millionaires. Totally f’d up.

      Man up and be an American. We all know that gay rights and racism are the only important issues in the US.

      Our founding fathers would be proud to break bread with Liberace, Al Sharpton, and John Travolta. Then, they’d hold high-level talks with RuPaul and Chris Kluwe to see how the GLBT-whatever community feels about stupid things like–say the rise of militant Islams, or that stupid Russian guy who is trying to take over a country where the women have mustaches.

      Get on the bus, bubba, it’s a brave (not really) new world. Join the gay happy dance on your front lawn and french-kiss a black man today!

      It’s all in the details. I imagine if the case had already happened and we had more information, Hernandez might jump to first. With Sterling, we have proof of what he said.

    Kragthorpe was a good coach for UofL. I liked the way he built down that team. Myron Pryor’s fumble touchdown return at the Bird’s Nest. Go Big Blue!

    Congratulations and the highest praise, coach Petrino. You’ve finally gotten the respect you worked so hard to attain at Louisville, Atlanta, AK, and Bowling Green. Even greater goals are within your reach now that you have found a fifth home in Jefferson County.

    “I am not going to make a post on the subject. But travel in recruiting circles and you won’t find anyone who thinks that program is clean. You are free to have any feeling about Calipari u wish but I am not a fan of his tactics on building a program.”

    “You just knew it was gonna happen deep down. Karma is a weird thing and it strikes at weird times and you just couldnt imagine that Memphis would really be allowed to win a national title. With a team full of players that had run-ins with the authorities, after the fight earlier this season at UAB, after their constant problems with free throw shooting and Coach Calipari’s mocking of it as an issue and the coach’s less than stellar reputation with the NCAA, you just HAD to think that it would catch up with them.”

    “As for Memphis, you just knew this would happen. All year, they have laughed in the face of those who said you didnt need to hit free throws to win, and it was those free throws that lost the game. I make jokes about this Memphis team and I do have some problems with how Calipari runs his program.”

      CAL may be on the list. It is due to haters.

      CAL attends mass daily. He does not cheat on his wife – or stab his brethren in the back.

      Petrino and Pitino BOTH cheated on their wives and BOTH stabbed former legions of fans in the back with their narcissistic dick moves.

      Petrino was and is scum.

    Bobby Petrino is a low life cheating scumbag who sells his services to the highest bidder like a common whore. He has embarrassed or betrayed team that he has led. In other words, he is a perfect fit for UL and Tom Jurich.

      Jurich is the program whore. He’s sold his soul to the devil to advance the little bro community college in the name of the all mighty dollar and his own resume. He invented the LAACP (Louisville Association for the Advancement of Card Pansies).

    I worked for an NFL team that drafted two U of L players one year. The one drafted in the second round told me point blank “Petrino’s a great coach, but he’s an awful human being.”

    Even Pitino’s players would never say that about him.
