It's seems like it's been months since we have had a juicy college football story hit the news wire. 2012 so far has remained scandalous free up until Bobby Petrino decided to not only get in a motorcycle accident with his helmet off but was also carrying a young attractive blonde by the name of Jessica Dorrell. And like they say when your riding in tandems it's always kind to give a reach around. Deadspin.com has more details....
The police report for Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino's motorcycle crash on Sunday shows he had a previously unmentioned passenger: Jessica Dorrell, recently named student-athlete development coordinator for football.
OPERATOR PETRINO (V-1) WAS TRAVELING WEST ON HIS MOTORCYLE IN THE WESTBOUND LANE OF ARKANSASSTATE HIGHWAY 16 WITH PASSENGER DORRELL RIDING ON THE BACK. FOR AN UNKNOWN REASON, V-1 (PETRINO) TRAVELED ACROSSTHE WESTBOUND FOG LINE AS HE WAS APPLYING THE BRAKES. AFTER TRAVELING OFF THE NORTH SIDE OF THE ROADWAY THE REAROF V-1 (PETRINO'S MOTORCYCLE) BEGAN ROTATING COUNTERCLOCKWISE CAUSING V-1 (PETRINO) TO LAY OVER ONTO ITS LEFT SIDE.WHILE ON ITS LEFT SIDE, V-1 SLID NORTHWEST THROUGH A GRASSY ROAD DITCH, STRIKING A PILE OF DIRT AND TREE LIMBS IN THENORTH ROAD DITCH.
Dorrell was a four-time letterwinner in volleyball , and progressed to handling fundraising duties for the Razorback Foundation. Just last week she was named a development coordinator for the football team, and will "handle on-campus recruiting and work with incoming players on eligibility issues." It also seems she's supposed to get married in June. Her fiancé works for the swim team.
Arkansas's initial statement on Monday morning said the accident "involved no other individuals."
As an Atlanta Falcons fan who saw Petrino walk out in midseason on the team when the going got rough for Fayetteville this can't help but bring a huge grin to my face. Petrino is a snake. But the guy wins and he wins big so people put up with his shit. Now it will be interesting to see how Petrino addresses the situation. Apology to his family? Denies the allegations all together? Pull a Damon Evans and resign? Starts screaming PIG SOOI?
UPDATE: Bobby Petrino admits to "previously inappropriate relationship" and has been placed on administrative leave by the Arkansas Athletic Director. Basically he was boning Dorrell a girl half his age even though he is married with four kids. And this is in Arkansas. One can only imagine what Nick Saban is pulling in Tuscaloosa.
Here is another picture of Dorrell.
Look at the smirk on Petrino's face. He's probably getting foothead.
