The national media was shocked this week when Louisville decided to bring Bobby Petrino as head coach of the Cardinals. Petrino, of course, has an interesting history with Louisville, but also is known for his lack of loyalty to the organizations he works for — he tends to jump ship. One fan base though, was ecstatic with the hire — that of the Kentucky Wildcats. Why? Because it could claim that Louisville sold its soul and cares far more about winning than ethics and morals.
The trolling of Louisville has already begun, and we saw yet another example of that today. One Kentucky fan is heading to the SMU-Louisville game this afternoon at the KFC Yum! Center dressed as Bobby Petrino…the version of Petrino in a neck brace following his widely-publicized motorcycle crash while the head coach at Arkansas. Here’s a photo, via Kentucky Sports Radio’s Matt Jones:
