Today on KSR: Bobby Petrino is Back

When Rick Pitino was fired from the University of Louisville, the Italian Stallion could not stay out of the media spotlight. It took a little longer for Bobby Petrino to crawl out from his hole into the public eye.

For the first time since Petrino’s “motorcycle accident” at Arkansas, the disgraced coach returned to the state for a speaking engagement at the Little Rock Touchdown Club. The Razorbacks have not been the same since Petrino left the program in ruins. Instead of angered by his departure, they were just happy to reminisce on better days.

The football robot even got emotional during his appearance. Razorback fans ate up every bit of it.

Give Chad Morris another year of bad football and you’ll start hearing the rumors of another Petrino return. Bobby 2.0: Arkansas Edition is going to be a beautiful disaster.

Coach Stoops Talks Chalk

Kentucky’s head coach took the podium Monday morning to talk about his team before they take on the Florida Gators Saturday night. It was the first step in the healing process to help Terry Wilson, the team and the BBN move on to the next week.

“He’s going to be missed. We appreciate him. I do anticipate a full recovery from that,” Stoops said of Wilson. “But the good news is Sawyer’s been through this. Sawyer’s played a lot. He’s had to step in. He stepped in this past week and played very good. So we’re excited about him and we’re confident in him.”

Terry Wilson Opens Up

Kentucky’s quarterback spoke publicly for the first time since his season-ended injury on last night’s Mark Stoops Show. Even though he’s in a crappy situation, he did not sound too downtrodden over the phone. Wilson is confident Sawyer Smith has what it takes to lead the team for the rest of the season.

Back to Practice

After the Wildcats go to work, Kentucky’s offense will meet with the media. We’ll hear how Wilson’s teammates plan to honor their quarterback around dinnertime.

A New KSR Football Podcast

After digging through some film, I teamed up with Drew Franklin, Charles Walker and AAF legend Austin MacGininnis to break down the play of Sawyer Smith. Chuck and Austin shared some insight on what it’s like to deal with a midseason quarterback change. We also explain why the Cats are going to extend the winning streak vs. the Gators to two.

Alabama is Big Mad

The SEC took its sweet time to announce game times for week four of the college football season. Finally around 4 p.m. they announced the Cats would kickoff in Starkville at 4 p.m. ET. It’s perfect for UK fans who want to make the road trip or for those at home who would love to make plans for Saturday night. Fans of the Crimson Tide were not as happy about their noon kickoff vs. Southern Miss. How mad? The AD had to issue a statement.

You don’t have to search far to find entitlement in Tuscaloosa.

A Special E:60

To mark the 40th anniversary of the four-letter network, tonight ESPN is profiling its beginnings with a very special E:60 at 7 p.m. that has a Kentucky connection. ESPN has records of almost every single broadcast, except the first one between The Kentucky Bourbons and the Milwaukee Schlitz.

    Only if he lasts 3 years so we can beat him at Arkansas in 2023

      seriously though, how has no one mentioned the fact that petrino was definitely a BAD coach in every game AFTER “Wakey Leaks” – did anyone else infer that maybe he had been cheating for a long time and only just then got caught in that one game?

    It is amazing what sports fans will forgive and overlook in the hope of a win. Very sad.

      Agree. The fact that UofL took him back, and now Arkansas might take him back is just simply pathetic.

      I’m pretty sure he’s saying that Alabama is the one whining..

      We don’t have temperatures like Bama in September. It’s miserable down there that time of year. I bet they have a lot of unsold tickets for that game if they have 90 degree weather.

    Nothing like ESPN creating a special to say how special they are.

    Alabama deserves to be entitled in college football… They have never missed the college football playoffs since its induction and have played in the last 4 NC games… That type of Success allows you to be entitled

      OK. Thanks Nick…

      Ofcourse they’re entitled, past players have admitted to receiving benefits but Alabama is the state of NC in football. The NCAA’s ideal of a investigation is to ask them if they did it.

      I still believe the only reason we got Fatt Elam was because of the online photo of him on Saban’s SUV saying he rode it.

    Some say the whole motorcycle wreck is a lie to cover the fact that his mistress’ fiance beat the crap out of him. That story sounds more believable.

      As much as I love the thought of Bobby getting his butt kicked, that really does look like “road rash” to me.

    Arkansas fans really are stupid. Petrino trashed their program, yet they cheer him and welcome him back.
