    Another bad hire. I think Petrino 2.0 time at UL is nearing the end off his run.

    Gotta be honest, my patience with Bobby is running thin.

    Against the teams he's now playing every week he's not able to just outscore people. I'm very concerned about the state of the offense with LJ leaving.

    He had a good DC in Grantham but by all accounts made his life unbearable.

    I won't even talk about the apparent nepotism on his staff.

    I think next season will be Petrino's last.

    I don't think this will turn out well----hope I'm wrong.
    Is Nick Holt at Purdue available?

    He'll probably come with Brohm...

    I would hope Brohm would jump at the opportunity to jump back to UofL.

    He has to be better than Peter Sirmon. Probably moving back to a 4-3D.

    The real problem in the short term is that we just don’t have a lot of known quantities on this defense right now. Zero two year starters on next year’s team and we’re going to be relying on a significant number of transfers.

    What’s been going on over on that side of the ball has not been a recipe for long-term success. Three coordinators in as many years? Shoot, I’m amazed we have the players that we do.
