She probably wouldn't sue for as much as Joker's buyout, so it's all relative.
I'm as much against Petrino as anybody. I think he's a bad guy. Football is a social sport--you can't do it on your own and eventually his petulant behavior will catch up with him. He needs players, recruits, assistants, administration, high school coaches, media, and even fans. Maybe he could take the UK job and win enough to cover up his social shortcomings, or maybe this is the job where he'd implode like Billy Clyde, another very adept tactician whose ill-formed personality caught up to him.
BP will be our OC and TD will be our HC
Completely wrong on all counts. Arkansas had no other choice but to fire him. I have been with my employer for 28 years and my work record is spotless. If I hired someone I was having sex with into a job, I would be fired on the spot, and it wouldn't even matter if I was single.
You'd bet he never felt comfortable with the situation he put himself in to begin with? Really? He started boinking her while knowing she was engaged to a fellow employee in the AD. Yeah, he was so uncomfortable with it that he hired her into a job over dozens of far more qualified applicants, and into a job where he could continue boinking her right under her fiance's nose, and even getting the university to finance it for him. Bobby Petrino is a stupid, ethically challenged, pathologically lying SOB. There's really no other way to describe him accurately.
Impressive. How would you describe our football program?
Footballcat65 is Steakcat on CatsIllustrated. He started this same thread on two different forums, even using the same claims that he has "lawyers" that work for him.
I'm calling BS on his claims, about Petrino and about these "lawyers" that work for him. I'm curious what sort of business SteakFootballCat65 has that employs lawyers. Want to share some info on that, Steak?
What kind of business could he be in that didn't employ lawyers? I've yet to run across one myself...
Rumors must be true, I saw him in Lexington this morning, snapped a pic for proof:
Looks like he is already bringing talent with him
There's a difference between hiring lawyers to represent you and having lawyers that work for you. So maybe I just need clarification?
What his business is, do the lawyers work for him or do they simply represent the company, and how having lawyers that represent your company imparts their legal knowledge on matters outside the scope of their representation to the business owner. That would suffice, I guess.
ThIs is sme clown jacking U& fans around. Come on people this is nonsense.
I'd ignore him except his posts are so insanely stupid that they are entertaining.
Maybe UK has vetted the situation, and have hammered out contract details to assist in preventing the same situation from happening at UK (proactive, mitigation, on UKs part), and therefore UK feels comfortable that there is no real legal risk.
Again, Im obviously speculating here and we are assuming this info is legit, but if there were ever a potential legal risk in hiring BP, UK could protect itself.
Further, I HIGHLY doubt BP would be stupid enough to make the same mistakes twice....if the guy has any conscience he'd be counting his blessings wherever he may land as a HC.
I'm not sure how you contractually prevent someone from doing something they already are not allowed to do but choose to do anyway. I don't see how helps UK free itself from the associated risk
If it were only the affair I wouldn't have a problem with it. It's his repeated lack of moral compas on any level that gives me hesitation.
Whether its him lying over and over about the auburn meeting, him leaving without talking to players, lying to his employer at Arkansas over and over,
Lying to the police, etc...
It's one thing to have poor judgement. We all do. It's another to lie once you get caught. That's the patter that concerns me. He has poor judgement and an his reaction when he gets caught is to lie.
If Mitch thinks he is reformed then I'm cool with it, but I see a pattern.
It sucks because I think the guy is a pretty good coach.
UK could still suffer legal liability in hiring BP regardless of any wording in a contract. Having particular wording in a contract would not protect the university. UK could still face legal liability in hiring him because of their knowledge of previous past actions of Petrino. This is a legal fact.
Should a company hire someone with full knowledge of a previous sexual harrasment incident, and that person again sexually harrass someone, said company coukd still suffer legal liability regardless if any wording in a contract or aggrement of employment.
So, all the talk if UK simply wording his contract to protect the univeristy is useless.
Footballcat, I'm gullible enough to believe you. Will we hear something on monday?
Fair enough. I didn't pick up the lawyer comment when I read it initially.
I wonder what his recruiting pitch was with this one.
Thanks for confirming what I have said, per my friends, that BP has not and will not be hired as KYs next football coach. Now I know that a lot of people claim to have sources about this matter but you are stating something that is coming from someone who would know the situation and my 2 buddies have intimate knowledge of the situation and they have never lied to me about anything they have confided in me, so IM going with what your daughter and my buddies have said about the matter and I feel relieved.
Mitch allowing Joker to finish out the year. If true, very classy move by Mitch. This is really interesting information, and we should know by Monday if this is true.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and it has made all the difference (Frost).
Your buddies have any idea if who will get the job?
Not very modest are you?
You guys might want to check some of the other boards. Something is up, looks like as early as tomorrow.
They havent confided that to me yet but when I hear I will go out on that proverbial limb and post it. I have contact with them over the phone since they live there in Lexington and I live in Ohio. I should speak to them sometime tonight or tommorow am and hopefully they will have some news. They did tell me that a decision would be coming very soon but Mitch is being very guarded. with his info. I think if something comes out real early it will come from the coach that has been hired his side.
