    How do we know?

    Well, his agent says so.

    ::) ::) :D :D

    Well ... duh. I mean, who would pay for the buyout THIS time?

    In a somewhat related note, Bobby Petrino is on immolation watch ...

    Whoever hires him next will pay the buyout, every cent.

    That's the legal principle established in the whole court case.

    I hate stories like this.

    If interest is denied he's ripped for commenting on the opening.

    If he doesn't respond he gets ripped for "leaving the door open".

    OK.

    I don't care how much heat you take, how much money you make.

    You want to go where you can win.

    Will R-Rod win at Michigan? It's too early to tell, but I for one was skeptical from Day One.

    Would R-Rod win at Clemson? Who knows.....The ACC is schizophrenic.

    Wouldn't R-Rod at K-State be entertaining? Assuming Pelini pulls Nebraska out of the ashes, Colorado is improving, with KU and Mizzouri in the North, then into the South, with OU, OSU, Texas, and Tech?

    Holy balls, that would be a fun conference.

    Well, considering he owns Kentucky and Rich Brooks, he'd at least leave Fayetteville on a high note.

    Judging by the game Saturday, he doesn't have much interest in coaching Michigan either.

    Rodriguez's agent ... now THAT guy's a real prize. Where to begin with ol' Mike Brown ... (and this is all factual, taken from the depositions over the summer during the WVU brouhaha)

    1.) The guy's not a real, certified agent -- he learned his trade online.
    2.) The guy sold his picks on football games to a gambling service under the code name, "The Waterboy."
    3.) The guy refers to ol' Richie as "Product Rodriguez."

    Scott Boras and David Falk, those guys are sharks. This guy's clownshoes, cunning enough only to hitch his wagon to Rodriguez (whom he met and befriended at, yes, Clemson) and ride that weasel to a big payday while blackmailing the Product's current employer for a more lucrative gig.

    I was trying to say -- and the message apparently got lost because I tried to get cute with the immolation reference -- that Petrino's timing on taking a college job was lousy. If he'd waited 10 months, he could be a clempson, where he'd have a much better chance to win than he'll have at Arky.

    Speaking of owning ... he now owns Auburn, too. ;D
