Best quote:

“He is a coward. Put that in quotes. He ruined a bunch of people’s lives, a bunch of people’s families, kids, because he didn’t have enough nuts to stay there and finish the job. That’s the truth.

It bothers me that some people in the media even mention Rodriguez in the same sentence as Petrino. This guy has a track record of lying, job-hopping, and running after money. He's had 6 jobs in 11 years, and was constantly talking to another team about its head coaching position (whether or not it was currently filled) while he was at Louisville. No one respects him; not his former players, not his former assistants, not his colleagues. 

Rodriguez left after 7 years at WVU amidst a deteriorating relationship with the AD and after turning down a more lucrative offer to coach at an equally prestigious program the previous season. All of his assistants joined him except two, and several of his players at WVU praised him even after he had left. There is no comparison between this guy and Rodriguez.

I live in atlanta and everyone in this town hates petrino. ImHO Petrino is more hated by Georgians than Nick Saban or Urban Meyer. The guy is a snake, he left the Falcons in the middle of the night (sort of the like the Colts did to Baltimore). I feel someday all the lying, greed, looking to the next job, and cheating (Im sure he does it) will catch up to him.
