07:52 AM ET 01.06 | With former Louisville head football coach Charlie Strong having decided to move on to Texas, where he'll replace Mack Brown, there are large shoes left to fill in Kentucky. As news of Strong's move broke, Louisville students made a banner campaigning for the return of current Western Kentucky head coach Bobby Petrino, which hung from a railing of the Swain Student Activities Center Saturday morning. ... Petrino coached the Cardinals for four seasons, compiling a 41-9 record. His final game in charge of the Cardinals was a 24-13 win over Wake Forest in the 2007 Orange Bowl. Petrino also spent a year as the Cardinals' offensive coordinator in 1998. ... Petrino was the overwhelming choice to replace Strong among voters in an online poll posted by Louisville's Fox affiliate WDRB.

Are you referring to firing Mark Dantonio and bring back Bobby Williams? Im kidding. I still think another MSU coach is where its at. John L. Smith is the way to go for louisville. Sure he drove MSU into the ground and help do the same at Arkansas, but when he was at louisville, he was good.

He could pal around with Petino

Louisville is now in the same division of the ACC as Fla. State and Clemson.
They'll struggle for years getting to the top.

With a Vespa, the blonde will be 4'11", 195 lbs and flatchested.

Ewwwww.........


At 4'11", 195 lbs, she won't be flatchested. But whatever is there, you sure as hell don't want to go motorboating with it!

I believe Petrino was the OC at that time. John L will be lucky to find a high school coaching job. On the other hand, John L could bring in Manny Diaz as the DC and one of the the ex Gator OCs and really run the program into the ground.
