Oopsy! Bobby Petrino Made a Boo Boo

Oopsy. It looks like Bobby Petrino screwed up.

Petrino has been the Head Football Coach for the University of Arkansas since the 2008 season.

Here is the story if you are interested

Maybe he’s going through a mid-life crisis. IDK.

If you’re going to do that kind of thing, don’t go joyriding with her on a motorcycle. That’s just kind of stupid. Those things crash all the time.

 And don’t lie about it. People always find out.

It’s still a fairly nascent news story, so I guess we’ll see what happens.
