Mike Zimmer calls Petrino 'a gutless bastard'

Bobby Petrino didn't crank up his popularity rating when he abandoned the Atlanta Falcons for the Arkansas Razorbacks (particularly when he did the ridiculous hog-calling at his introductory presser).

And Mike Zimmer, the Bengals DC who once coached for Petrino in the ATL, probably likes him less than anyone you know. Or at least anyone you know who gets quoted by people like Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

"He is a coward," Zimmer said. "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."

But wait! There's more!

"He came in and said he resigned, he would talk to us all at a later date, walked out of the office and no one has ever talked to him since. Not that anybody wanted to.

"He’s a gutless bastard. Quote that. I don’t give a s---."

When informed that the B-word might not be printable in the newspaper, Zimmer offered up, "gutless MF" instead.

The lesson(s), as always? A)We need to get Mike Zimmer back on "Hard Knocks" and b) no one likes Bobby Petrino.

The players and possible recruits do deserve to hear this so they know who they are playing for or thinking of playing for.  Petrino showed that he cared about no one but himself with his actions and words as he quit the Atlanta Falcons players, coaches, and ownership.  He showed a total lack of respect and caring for any of the hundreds of people that depended on him to make their living.  These are the type of character traits that make us who we are and they rarely if ever change in a person.  I think a potential future Razorback player needs to know of Petrino's character and the fact that he may just up and vanish like a fart in the wind one day to the Razorback program as well when the going gets tough.

I was referring to one of the first couple of posts about Nick (whore) Saban!
I live in the south now and i Watch the SEC get all these (well, ok two) money above all coaches
and i think, no wonder the SEC is SO good every year, Some of the univ. just dont care about
what kind of examples these guys are setting, just get me more wins and a bigger slice of that
B(ullshit) C(hanpionship) Series, no wonder they win alot of the nat'l titles!

Get your facts right.  Saban left before the season was over just like Petrino.

Your punk ass coach ran before anybody could tell him off.  That is why it took 3 years.  Just shut up and deal with it.  Miami fans are doing the samething to Saban today.  His name invokes spittle laden diatribes about being left high and dry.

Said the person with "JenniCarlsonSux" as a post name....

Truth i,s Petrino did suck at atlanta, I really did not want to see him in Arkansas, Zimmer's got every right to be mad but he's in a better position as DC in Cincinnati...

... and as you can clearly see by some of our Arkansas razorback fan comments,... Petrino is getting the fanbase exactly suited for him.



Go Hogs!
