If you are only willing to call Bobby Petrino just a good coach then that tells me all I need to know about your football knowledge.
For those of you that are convinced Petrino is the only way....will you change your mind if Petrino doesn't get a BCS job this year?
Will you be convinced that there's at least the possibility that the risk exceeds the reward?
Why not take the risk? if it doesn't work, so what? It is not like we have ANYTHING to lose at this point.
I would much rather try that then to hire a coach from San Jose State who has about 25% of ever winning more than 6 games in a season.
Risk is easy to assume when you don't have to bear any of it. Were you in a position where you were forced to consider the risks because you were dedicating taxpayer dollars to it, you wouldn't hold such a flippant attitude.
Creative tactic though, assigning the famous "TheTurnaround13 Probabilities of Success and Failure at UK Football" percentage points to coaching candidates. How did you come up with 25%? It appears that MacIntyre has been much more successful taking a program from nothing (1-11) and making them successful (9-2) than Bobby Petrino has. What percentage do you assign Bobby Petrino, despite the knowledge that he has never walked into a losing situation?
Laughingstock? Mitch? Hey, I'm not a Barnhart basher, in fact my opinion is that he's done a good job at UK. This hire will determine his legacy as AD here, however. He needs to get it right. I'm not even sure BP will come here, but IF Petrino is interested then Mitch has the spectacular hire UK desperately needs. So, yes, IMHO, Bobby Petrino is the only available head coach with a resume that is a predictor of success, here, at UK.
Bobby petrino has 0 long term condition that would anyway create the culture needed for UK football program to succeed.
SMH, BP is just a bad idea.
If UK hires that bum I am through with this program from the football standpoint.
Not one more doll will go the program not 1.
No more K fund no more donations for anything.
Petrino is a bum a liar and a cheat of cheats you cheat on your wife you will do anything to win and get what you want. PERIOD
