Serious question here;
How can a fan rip Strong for lying and want him to leave and then say they want Bobby Petrino back? One guy is still the coach at UL and the other isn't. Shouldn't we be inclined to stick with our guy until he proves he's NOT our guy? If you are mad because you believe Strong lied about flirting with other jobs, how can you be OK with Petrino?
I'm not asking to start an argument or whatever. Just curious as to what I'm missing.

41-9 ... lost one home game in 4 seasons ... beat teams 70-7 ... 4-0 v uk ... 4 points away from a national title ... should I go on?
and this go around we could make his contract absurdly one sided so he couldn't leave if he tried

plus really anyone knew bobby was sociopathic
charlie self-proclaims as an alter boy (cf rome interview)
they say the world always welcomes redemptive sinners
hope ccs is here for a long time, but do kinda get bobby
I trust in jurich
Please do go on...
Don't forget to add ... Left minutes after telling us he was staying ... left that job half-way through the season ... spent most of his last two seasons here pursuing other jobs through secret meetings on airport tarmacs ...
He may come, but he won't stay. Again.
OK....so I can put you down for "Just win BIG baby?"
We are in the Sugar Bowl, right?

This. We'd be lucky to have Bobby P back. Especially with next year's team.
Who has stayed here? Ever? Nobody. Howard only stayed 9 years and we named a freakin' building after him. 5 years should warrant a statue. In my lifetime (I'm almost 30) I've seen 5 UofL coaches hired. That's an average of one every five to six years.
It's apparent we will be restocking our coaching cupboard every few years--why not win as much as you can in those few years? If Bobby comes he's likely to be gone by 2015. But so is Kirby Smart, Hugh Freeze, or any other name out there.
2015? Hell... I'd bet he doesn't last a single season.
Junky, the Petrino mentions amazed the hell out of me when I saw them. I actually thought it was UK fans trolling at first, but realized there were a lot of posters I know are UofL fans making the same request. If someone poses the question to me, then yes I'd say I'd take him back. But, I'm not ready to lynch Charlie like a lot of folks around here seem to be.
I want to reiterate that I want Charlie and his staff back. For next year, for the next 10 years, for life if possible.
But if Charlie was to leave, there is only one or two names out there that I would consider a homerun, and Bobby P is one of them. You don't pass up on coaching talent like that, you just don't.
Like Howie Long said about John Elway's decision to go with Peyton Manning:
"You can either play it safe and be good, or you can take a risk and be GREAT."
I want to be great.
See, I understand that and I suppose that's why I'm having trouble with people pining for Petrino and chomping at the bit to dump Strong. It doesn't make sense.
Everyone who has been on the board the last two days knows some of us are pissed about what he said at the PC about the fans, but hell, he's still our coach and it's just one of those unfortunate things. Pitino has said some similar stuff and you just move on. It's the UL family. Sometimes we get pissed at each other, but we all want the best for UL and I'm sure Charlie Strong does. If he leaves, well, then he's not a part of the family moving forward and that will be that.
Petrino is a great coach, but I'd rather have the guy who IS our coach.
This entire post is a joke. Petrino is a great coach and a total piece of crap. He would sit on the sidelines and look up into empty seats and shake his head in disgust. There is no way he comes back here and there is no way we should try and get him here.
howard would have been here for life had the president not gone behind everyone's back and taken us into conference usa ... he's the only coach we have ever had that wanted to be here
Got to think Petrino has burned enough bridges and made enough trouble that a return here would be his last stop. It sure seemed like he was staying put at Arkansas until he got caught fooling around.
He may not have been happy about empty seats at times, but we've got more butts in the stands now than we did back then. And for as much crap as he took for not having a personality, at least he knew not to make negative comments about any fans except for UK's.
I hope Jurich can swallow his pride. The greatest coach UofL has ever seen -- and one whose football mind trumps Strong's -- is looking for a job. Swallow your pride, Tom, swallow your pride.
I would welcome back Bobby with open arms
If we are going to get cheated on we may as well have the hottest girlfriend.
If we are going to be lied to.... why not get lied to by a guy who hangs 50 on teams and has a prolific offense?
GMAN316: Jameis Winston isn't Jeff Driskel and Jimbo Fisher isn't Mushchump. FSU wins easily.
That's where you are wrong. If we'd take Petrino back after what he did to us, after 1-3 years of success here with *moderately good behavior (meaning, he didn't commit a crime or lie beyond the realms of acceptable for a DI football coach), you can bet your ass he'd be taking a job at an SEC school. Please understand that Petrino is a sociopath and a liar to the core. You do not make that mistake again if you are jurich.
I would puke if we hired Petrino again.
An earlier poster made a good point...if they are successful here, they leave. IMO there are about 30 jobs better than the Louisville job and several jobs that are lateral moves. Since we are close to that top 30 our coaches will get poached. The only coach that will stay here is a coach no one else wants, and that isn't what we want either.
They all leave, its just a matter of whether they are kissing us while they are ph**king us on the way out the door.
I hope that CCS stays here as long as he is driven to stay here. If he is leaving I think it will be hard for him. I think he is a very genuine person but offers like these don't come along often and he is the other side of 50.
LOL gotta love the double-standard by some here. CCS is about to do to us after three years what Bobby P did to us after four. Yet, people treat CCS like he's Jesus and Petrino as the anti-Christ.
If Strong leaves, we bring Petrino back in a minute.
This thread can't be serious. I really don't even know where to begin. Are you people serious with this hire Bobby Petrino crap?
If they rehire Petrino I will cease to follow the football program. It's like battered women syndrome, why go back to get your teeth kicked in again. Some of you folks need to put the crack pipe down.
I was wondering the exact same thing.
Also, can someone supply a link where Strong has lied about something? People act as if he leaves, he's doing the same thing Petrino did. How can anyone really think this?
While this is true assuming that CCS leaves what would prevent his replacement (say Kirby Smart or Kliff Kingsbury) from doing the same thing?
