08:24 AM ET 04.06 | Arkansas school officials can only hope there are no more unflattering details to emerge in the incident that left its head coach on leave. Football coaches who win at a high level have been known to survive the most serious of storms. The storm that has engulfed Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino might get worse before it gets better, and it has already become a huge embarrassment for the university. Petrino's success on the field and the way he has made Arkansas relevant again nationally will weigh heavily in his corner, but the stigma that's sure to follow him now might be too much to overcome. ... Clearly, Petrino's bosses are ticked.

Coach Petrino's sin here is LYING about this young lady's presence on his motorcycle and at the scene of the crash. He's LYING to cover up something. LYING is what will get him cashiered. Just ask Jim Tressel.

That and the fact he just hired her just the week before to the Athletic Department. And I don't think the "relationship" started then...

Sad to say, the Arkansas AD needs to learn the lesson Alabama learned with Mike DuBose. They hung onto him after similar circumstances (although they docked his pay -- temporarily -- for the cost of a settlement to DuBose's "subordinate"), and then ended up a few years later with the Albert Means fiasco. When something similar happened with Mike Price, they didn't hesitate with the hook.

As usual-if you get caught fess up immediately. The coverup gets your butt in a whole lot more trouble. See Dick "What break-in?" Nixon, Bill "I never had sex with that woman" Clinton and Jim "What tatoos?" Tressell.

My bride of 40 years says that Petrino's wife is more understanding than she would have been. As evidence, she cites the fact that Petrino's still alive.

At the risk of being crucified here,, these older women need to understand that we men are only human, and when most women reach the age of 30 our interest in them is over.
Especially for men in high places,, they have the power to get what they want,, the young vibrant attractive women.
Its animal instinct that's all, come on, be fair to men.

Reminds me of the UGa AD caught in an embarrassing situation, don't recall all the details, but seems like it involved a woman and some panties in his lap when pulled over by the fuzz (pun intended)? Got him canned, and the Hogs AD needs to do the same to Petrino IMO.

She may not have had the opportunity to be alone with him yet, so being alive could be a temporary condition.

I guess I am not as picky. My interest lasts at least till mid 40s. I can only dream, pant, and drool at the under 30 selection.

Petrino, seemingly unliked by just about everyone, did admit his mistake.

He'll be coaching somewhere, if not at Arkansas.
