* Bobby Petrino says he’s changed. But in reporting a story about the new Louisville coach that is in SI’s college football preview, it appears Petrino is still just as difficult to work and play for. Sources with ties to the Cardinals’ football program and Petrino said there’s significant friction between Petrino and feisty defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. The two have repeatedly feuded often since Grantham’s hiring in January.
So much that one source insists Petrino would have already gotten rid of Grantham if not for his guaranteed five-year contract that pays him nearly $1 million annually. He came to Louisville after four seasons as Georgia’s defensive coordinator. “He’s stuck with him,” a source said.
“He’s a mean guy,” said Jamaine Brooks, a former Louisville defensive tackle who left this past spring. “He cusses you out. You’re never doing enough. He’s still Bobby Mother------- Petrino.”

“He’s a mean guy,” said Jamaine Brooks, a former Louisville defensive tackle who left this past spring. “He cusses you out. You’re never doing enough. He’s still Bobby Mother------- Petrino.”Brooks initially supported Petrino’s hiring, which he quickly came to regret. “The way he came in doing business I didn’t like it,” Brooks said. “The way he treated people. He just wasn’t a good coach.”http://www.si.com/college-foot...off-todd-gurley

If he is mean or whatever, maybe that's part of what makes him such a good coach? The day he loses that and everyone loves him might be the day he has to retire, because he won't be winning as many games anymore.

Isn't it strange we've read so many positive reviews about Coach Petrino from the players currently on the team and practicing every day versus these comments from one player who quit the team?This writer has "sources" feeding him all these negatives. I've got sources giving nothing but positives. There's probably dozens of guys on this board who get more inside information on what's happening around our football program than this one writer who spends about ten minutes a year seeking information on the Cards' athletics.
