Let Us Not Forget

Two years ago, Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino was in his first season as the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons. After Mike Vick went to jail and the team struggled, Petrino quit on his team and took the job at Arkansas. While things seem to have worked out well for the Falcons, let's not forget what a dick move that was. He walked out on his players and the city that supported the team. In the wake of Petrino's dash to Fayetteville, even the stooges at the Worldwide Leader were ripping on Petrino:

While not all Georgia fans are Falcons fans and the teams are completely separate, a win for the Dawgs over the Hogs this Saturday would be a nice kick in the ass from everyone who calls Atlanta home. This guy is known to always be looking for the next job (see Auburn in 2003 for example) and it is just a matter of time before he turns his back on Arkansas.

Oh how the Arkansas faithful are soon to forget. The AJC wrote an article in yesterday's paper saying how happy the Razorback fans were, and how Petrino could do no wrong. This guy has been itching to get into the SEC, and nearly did it by stabbing Tubbs in the back before it all blew up in his face. Given the chance, Petrino will jump ship again. He's probably already scouting out SUC for Spurrier's job.
