Bobby Petrino has a neck brace and scrapes on his face after his motorcycle crash last weekend, but he also basically had his butt handed to him by karma. And nobody messes with karma.
C'mon, was he really under the impression that no one would ever find out that his companion on the motorcycle when the accident happened was a 25-year-old woman named Jessica Dorrell, who had recently been added to the staff of the University of Arkansas football team? Because her identity was bound to come out at some point.
And if enduring the crash and then being forced to admit that he was having an affair with this girl wasn't punishment enough for his cheating, losing his career over the scandal may be the icing on the cake. Bobby has been put on paid administrative leave by the University of Arkansas until an investigation is done.
Bobby has issued a statement trying to redeem himself in the hopes that his actions won't ultimately get him fired. He apologized to his wife and four kids (how big of him), said he plans on cooperating fully with the university (total cry of desperation), and says that he wants to "repair his relationship with the Razorback Nation and remain head coach." (Yeah, good luck with that, buddy.)
Petrino may have been willing to take his chances on getting caught in an inappropriate relationship with Jessica Dorrell, but I guess he didn't take the potential life changing consequences of his actions into consideration first. Cheaters always get caught, and karma always wins.
Do you think Bobby Petrino should lose his job?
