“For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”
— Matthew 16:26
I have to say I’m probably in the minority in some aspects when it comes to my opinion of Bobby Petrino.
The former Arkansas coach is still cursed by most in these parts for the way he left the Atlanta Falcons. Those who think that way, however, forget that if the situation was reversed, the Falcons would not have waited until it was a good time for Petrino to get rid of him.
Petrino, for whatever reason, felt the Arkansas job was a better situation for him so he took it. I don’t fault him for that.
