    Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino was in a motorcycle accident this past weekend. He was not wearing a helmet and suffered some rib injuries...

    But it gets more interesting now- the university had said he was alone on the bike, but now it is coming out, he had a young female on board with him- the lady is a 25 year old blonde, who had just been hired by the university- from the news story...

    Jessica Dorrell was a four-time letterwinner in volleyball , and progressed to handling fundraising duties for the Razorback Foundation. Just last week she was named a development coordinator for the football team, and will "handle on-campus recruiting and work with incoming players on eligibility issues." It also seems she's supposed to get married in June. Her fiancé works for the swim team.


    ooops.....

    Well, they are adding a third one down here- apparently, Petrino was in discussions with Auburn about the head job while Tommy Tubberville was still firmly in charge. I'm assuming that was while he was at Louisville.

    As for teh young lady- well, I'd have no problem hitting that, but have to question how she managed to escape the accident unhurt.

    Good for Bobby. In all seriousness though, you can't fire him. They are a legitimate threat to win the SEC and National Championship this season, and he's done a lot for the program in the few years he's been there.

    Looks like the program is doing a lot for him too.

    I hope the job she got out of it was worth it. Imagine cheating on your fiance with that!

    Could care less about college football, but the University looks better after firing him. Good on the AD.

    usalion's all over it. I've been going to Louisville games for 10 years and Petrino got the program within an interception of the national championship game. BUT....as usalion alluded to, seemed like every year he was angling for another job, namely Auburn...then finally the Falcons. Good coach, but Louisville fans knew wherever he landed, it wouldn't be for long. Dude lasted 13 games with the Falcons before quitting and taking the Hogs' gig. I told Hog fans, "Don't get too attached...." But I didn't he'd leave on account of knockin' boots with a hottie half his age!

    Amazing how the privates will get men/women in trouble. Athletes, politicians, school teachers, priests.....doesn't matter. Petrino had a great setup in Fayetteville. Team was on the rise. Now? Who knows? Oh, I'm sure within a year, someone will hire his dumb ass....

    Apparently, more than one young lady in Mr. Petrino's life....

    From an article

    Bobby Petrino has a love of motorcycles. So, apparently does Alison Melder, who was a former Miss Motorcycle Mania. We can only assume that is what they were talking about. Deadspin went through Petrino’s phone
    records and discovered the exchanges with Melder, consisting of over 200 texts from September through November, including seven pictures sent by Melder.


    I think the word "scumbag" is not too harsh a term for Petrino.

    Scumbag is an apt description, but come on, I think i'd find it hard to knock back a round with a former Miss Morotcycle Mania.

    I think the moral here is that there's hope for us all if petrino can appeal to two such beauties.
