It's interesting to me that no one is making a big deal of this like they did with Petrino...i don't necessarily mean nationally, but at least on this board.
Im not sure many were mad at John L. leaving at halftime for MSU or Dantonio leaving before his bowl game. Unfortunatly its the way of college football right now and i dont see it changing soon.
Well when you can't stand your AD why would you tell him what you are doing? Rich felt the AD wasn't being fair to the football program so he did Pastilong no favors. Personally I don't blame him on that. F Ed Pastilong
Petrino cannot blame Blank about this (i don't think), but had he known Vick would be in prison i doubt he would have left Louisville...Petrino was put into a situation he was no aware would happen...not an excuse but if you can use the fact RR didn't like his boss (how many people do?) for a reason he did what he did, then i can use what i did.
