    Get well soon Coach!

    Those pictures show why I am a fan of full face helmets and helmets in general. They may not look cool, when you are riding a cruiser, but they keep you from having road rash on your face and a guy like that is getting paid what he is for what he has tucked away in his skull. Live free or die – but in this case you should keep that skull covered Coach!

      hopefully he is smarter about “protection” in the sack, than he is on the road. Maybe he is into rough sex, thats why she doesnt have a scratch and he looks like he was beat with a string of benoit balls.

    Frankly, I’d be surprised if there wasn’t something like that (wearing a helmet) in his contract. Seems like the university could have that leeway when they are making that kind of an investment in someone.

      what a moronic statement.

    I am amazed that the intial statements out of the U and the Petrino family mention nothing of his passenger. Not that she is tall and good looking has anything to do with it, but this is reminiscent of Nutty’s claim that over 1000 texts per month to a good looking divorcee is normal for a married man? This is not going down easy.

    Let’s see. No helmet because one helmet would not look good on me? Sun in his eyes. Wind. And a long-legged Blonde just popped out of a cake? Amazingly stupid for saying that he was ALONE. Why? Moronic? Power corrupts? Sometimes. This is one way to get out of that stupidly expensive contract that AD hammered out. Whether this winds up being a morality question or not one would still have to say that morality is this country’s worst problem. Unfortunately, this will never be totally put to rest. Next coach…step up. It may be a matter of time now. One dumb thing and then another one? If he had mentioned it beforehand, it would have make more sense. Now, he and she are left to forever explain something that they may be totally innocent about. Coming out this way, it appears that he was trying to hide something.

    glad he didnt die, that would have really screwed up our football season.
