"The albatross and the whales, they are my brothers."---The Little River Band
I like the move for the conference. I was never concerned about CBP's personal life that is btw him and his wife. I did, however, think he would be a better fit at Ark State. Those talks fizzled out quickly. Can't wait to see him in Mobile next year.

I hope they keep that short list of names for their next coaching search. Does anybody really see him staying past next year? He has a decent year and no outside "distractions", and he will be gone in a heartbeat.
IT'S OUR TIME! GO JAGS!!
The buzz last week was that he had offered Ark St a $3 million buyout if he left before three years. I'd assume that WKU got some sort of a generous guarantee in that regard.
After all, if you're going to be the school that rehabilitates his image, you should get paid for it in more than just wins.
I'm not sure how this will impact recruiting issues. Taggert beat us for some kids in the Birmingham area and in Florida but Petrino seems to usually recruit close to home. To be honest, he's such a good coach that he can make winners out of average players and doesn't have to go far to find the guys he needs. Hopefully he'll focus on Kentucky, Tennessee and surrounding areas and leave our prime areas to us.
WKU will be coming to Ladd next season.This should be fun!
Has next season's SBC schedule been confirmed? If so I haven't seen it. Do you have a link for the lazy?
Anyone else feel like they put a lot into getting him to make a stronger C-USA push?
That's what I was thinking. If the Jags are still losing, maybe we can still get people out for the sideshow aspect.
He won't be there for long, but at least we can have fun with him while he's there. I heard from someone I know who lives in Bowling Green that there is an odd scent hanging in the air this morning. It smells like a mixture of asphalt and shame.
My media obligations for that game may have to be put on hold. I'd love to get a chance to heckle him!
Class of '14. Go Jags! South in your Mouth!
Not so much fun, IMO, if we get beat.
That was the 1st thing I thought about.
Gotta look at the glass being half full my friend.
A heartbeat in the middle of the night.
JAG FAN SINCE <><>
Sounds like the name of a sleezy book.
I'm sure one will be able to be wrote after ol' Bobby finishes his tenure at WKU. Looking forward to heckling him in Ladd.
1.2 million dollar buyout will make him stick around for a while.
If one of the big boys comes-a-callin', he will get a "loan" to cover his buyout or an alumnus will sneeze and find enough change for it.
