Petrino On the Recruiting Trail?
ESPN Gene Wojciechowski, who knows the college landscape as well as anyone, has a terrific column on new Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino and how fun it would be to see him on the recruiting trail now. Consider this passage, of a conversation between Petrino and a father during an imaginary in-home visit:
"That's the place. And while we're discussing college campuses, do you mind me asking where your son has taken his official visits?"
"Well, so far he's talked to Notre Dame, LSU, Florida, Mississippi and Auburn."
"Weird -- so did I. What I meant to say is, has he made any kind of verbal commitment?"
"Yes, to Auburn."
"Weird -- so did I. I mean, he's only given them his word, right?"
"Isn't that enough?"
"It's been my experience that if you try hard enough, you can get out of anything, including your word."
