WHO'DA THUNK IT? MICHAEL VICK'S GIFT TO THE RAZORPIGGIES

Wow! Bobby Petrino wants out of Atlanta. Atlanta wants Bobby Petrino out of Atlanta and the piggies were oh-so-happy to give Bobby a place to land. Again, Fichigan took its time and lost out.

Special note to Springdale refugees. Bobby loves to pass the ball.

The comments on espn.com (authors Forde and Pasquerelli) are downright scathing.

The folks at U. of Louisville have "fond" memories of this gentleman's pledges of loyalty, followed by unexpected jumps to another team.....

Once Petrino signs his Ar-Kansas (Les Miles pronunciation guide) contract, he will have signed three contracts in about 18 months (Louisville extension, Falcons, Razorbacks).

Of course, that means he broke two of the contracts.

You really want your kid to play for this guy?

I don't think he broke his Louisville contract. I think he paid the buyout clause for the original contract that was then extended after he turned down the LSU and some other jobs.

Falcons breached their contract to him. He was supposed to be coming to an NFL team.

BUT....the answer to your question is no, I wouldn't want my kid to play for him because he lied to Mr. Blank about his intentions. Just like Saban, jumping is just business. Lying is who you are.

OK ABC, since you fired the first shot, let's refresh your memory ...

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas' three-year probation for NCAA infractions ended Sunday and the school will be able to award the maximum 85 football scholarships for the first time since 2000-01 when the fall semester begins.

The NCAA is expected to send a letter soon confirming the completion of the probation.

"I doubt if we'll have a celebration," university Chancellor John White said. "We would like to call as little attention to the fact that we were on probation as we could."

The NCAA Infractions Committee ruled Arkansas committed three major violations and one secondary infraction. The school and NCAA found that from 1994-99 at least 20 football and basketball players were overpaid an estimated $4,300 total, an average of $215 each, for part-time jobs at J&H Truck Service in Dallas, owned by university booster Ted Harrod.

Besides having to file annual reports to the NCAA describing corrective actions, the school lost 10 football scholarships -- two per year -- and one scholarship in 2004 in men's basketball.

Arkansas, using private funds, spent about $250,000 on an outside consultant and spent thousands more investigating and defending itself. The school made several changes to improve its rules compliance system; it stepped up oversight of high-access boosters and athletes' jobs and it increased education of coaches, staff, athletes and boosters.

Oh, I never said college sports and boosters weren't cesspools. Just pointed out that Fichigan was not sewage-exempt.
