    Are you thinking we have a sub .500 season this year?

    I feel like we’d have to be abismal for a couple years at least for him to get canned.

    There's zero chance we have a better year next year.

    Without Lamar, they'll struggle to duplicate what they did this season.

    With a new (sub par) DC, I do not look forward to football season. And it pains me to say that.

    Hard to be happy about this hire. Definitely not good news to hear with the challenges they are already going to have.

    It's hard to imagine a university moving on from a guy leading a team to annual winning seasons even if the fan base expects better competition among the top of te conference without having an actual president or athletic director.

    It's going to be a shame when they sit on their hands and let Brohm go to a better program when they seem to actually have a chance because he's from here. Just spitballing, and I know Bobby Petrino and loyalty aren't usually spoken in the same sentence, but with their time together at UofL and Western, I wonder how Brohm would even feel about the Cards pushing Bobby out to make room for him.

    Separate thought, but of the many reasons one could have been opposed to the Petrino 2.0 hire, I know I never considered how difficult it has seemed tobe for him to find assistants willing to come here.

    I think Bobby's days are numbered. He & Jurich were really tight (Montana boys). He lost his only cheerleader. Unless he wins 9+ games, he's probably gone. New AD will probably want someone new, his guy.
