Students rally to save Coach Petrino’s job

April 9, 2012

Jessica Dorrell and Coach Bobby Petrino's inappropriate relationship have come into question.

Despite what happens off the field, if you win 21 games in two seasons, fans will support you wholeheartedly, at least if you are Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino.  Ever since the infamous motorcycle accident in which Petrino was anything but truthful, the university placed him on administrative leave causing a stir amongst the Razorback Nation. So much so, loyal fans have cried out to save Petrino’s job.

As the facts surrounding the motorcycle accident and inappropriate relationship with 25-year old Arkansas football employee Jessica Dorrell surface, calls to question arose as to whether athletic director Jeff Long should reinstate the university’s beloved coach.  In an attempt to sway Long, the Razorback Nation created a Facebook page to rally support for coach Petrino in which over 8,600 members have joined “Team Save Coach Petrino.”  Additionally, there is a rally planned for tonight at 7:00 pm at the Broyles Center parking lot.

As quoted by the group’s organizer, Matt Couch stated “It’s a great week for forgiveness, with it being the Easter weekend. We want to forgive, forget and win.”

It is clear Couch, among the rest of the Razorback Nation, is focused on winning, who cares that Petrino was having an affair, lied about the accident, lied to his school and players, and lied to himself.  Petrino should be a role model, and winning games is only part of the big picture, not the only picture.  

The question remains, if coach Petrino did not have 22 wins in two seasons, would his infidelity and lack of veracity garner this type of support?

    However, “since then, the mistakes have not really diminished … some are saying part of the reason they haven’t dealt with it is that there are disputes within the agencies about how rampant the mistakes are,” she said.

    “You know, it’s been stated in recent weeks that somehow the memory of Newtown has faded, at least in Washington, and I think it’s important to remember for those families and for everyone in that community and for so many people across America, those memories will never fade,” White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters Monday. “It is the obligation of the members of Congress — who stood and applauded when the President called on them to vote on these issues — to live up to that applause when the cameras were on. And not to take the less courageous route, by using procedural measures to block a vote.”

    STORY WRITTEN FOR & USED WITH PERMISSIONPosted: August 29, 2009 The Discovery astronauts conducted an inch-by-inch inspection of the most critical sections of the shuttle’s heat shield Saturday, examining the ship’s nose cap and wing leading edge panels with a laser scanner on the end of a 50-foot-boom attached to the shuttle’s robot arm.Credit: NASA TVNo obvious problems stood out, but it will take engineers several more days to complete the normal post-Columbia assessment of launch imagery, the laser scans carried out Saturday and close-up photos of Discovery’s belly during final approach to the International Space Station Sunday evening before the heat shield is given a clean bill of health.Docking with the International Space Station is targeted for around 9:04 p.m. EDT Sunday. As with all shuttle-station dockings, commander Frederick “C.J.” Sturckow will approach from directly in front of the lab complex, manually guiding the shuttle the final 400 feet or so to a linkup with a port on the front end of the Harmony module.But Sturckow will have a bit of an added challenge Sunday. He won’t be able to use the shuttle’s small vernier jets for fine attitude control because of an apparent leak in one of two small thrusters in the ship’s nose. Because of the presumed leak, engineers asked the crew to close a manifold earlier Saturday to isolate the leak, taking both forward jets off line for the duration of the mission.”We had one of our vernier jets, F5R, fail-leak last evening,” lead flight director Tony Ceccacci told reporters early Sunday. “Basically, the signatures that we saw were somewhat interesting, I have to admit. I was an ex prop (propulsion officer in mission control) and what I saw didn’t quite make sense. But what we did this morning after the crew woke up, we did close that manifold, No. 1, just to safe the system. We wanted to make sure the manifold was evacuated and didn’t cause any contamination concerns to the station.”Even in the loss-of-vernier case, the crew is well trained to press through the rendezvous sequence, the prox ops (proximity operations) part of it. We actually had a quick tag up with C.J. today on what to expect and what differences he will have without vernier jets.”The shuttle’s forward reaction control system, or RCS, includes 14 primary engines and two vernier jets. Two aft RCS pods feature 12 primary thrusters and two verniers each. The primary engines generate 870 pounds of thrust while the verniers produce just 24 pounds of push.Without the verniers, “the crew just has to be a little bit more careful,” Ceccacci said. Using the more powerful primary jets during final approach requires “just a little bit more piloting” than usual, “but nothing that’s outside of our experience or what we train the crew.”Once docked, the orientation, or attitude, of the combined shuttle-station “stack” is typically controlled by the station’s four control moment gyroscopes, assisted from time to time by the shuttle’s vernier jets. Because of the F5R failure, Russian thrusters will be used for major changes.”There were some other things we were looking at in the event we had to do a debris avoidance maneuver, what the best scenario and configuration would be, whether it would be on the Russian thrusters or going to the alt-DAP (digital autopilot) on the primary jets,” Ceccacci said. “The folks are taking a look, making sure we have good solar array configurations, making sure that we meet all the loads constraints and such. But we have work-arounds to deal with that failure.”Along with inspection the nose cap and wing leading edge panels Saturday, the Discovery astronauts checked out two spacesuits that will be used later in the mission by John “Danny” Olivas and Christer Fuglesang. Early Sunday, the crew planned to test their rendezvous tools and prepare the orbiter docking system for operation before going to bed at 5:29 a.m.Additional coverage for subscribers:VIDEO:SATURDAY NIGHT’S MISSION STATUS BRIEFING VIDEO:NARRATED PREVIEW OF SHUTTLE INSPECTIONS VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: INSIDE MISSION CONTROL ROOM VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: VAB ROOF VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: PRESS SITE VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: PAD PERIMETER VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: BEACH TRACKER VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: PAD CAEMRA 070 VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: PAD CAEMRA 071 VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: UCS-23 TRACKER VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: PLAYALINDA BEACH VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: PAD FRONT CAMERA VIDEO:LAUNCH REPLAY: PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE VIDEO:POST-LAUNCH BRIEFING VIDEO:FLIGHT DAY 1 HIGHLIGHTS MOVIE VIDEO:THE FULL LAUNCH EXPERIENCE VIDEO:LIFTOFF OF SPACE SHUTTLE DISCOVERY!
