It's become painfully obvious for the Arkansas Razorbacks athletic department that they have been duped in the hiring of Bobby Petrino. Not just because Petrino was caught in a lie about the details of his motorcycle accident several days days ago, but because Arkansas actually expected him to be disciplined and accountable.
Can you imagine that?

Petrino has been put on paid leave by the University of Arkansas, which is expected to be a dangerous group in the 2012 season. Will he back to coach the team, or this offense too egregious to forgive?
