Jamal Anderson and Chris Houston

Sean Salisbury was on 680 last night and he was FURIOUS at Petrino. He was literally ranting about him and one of the things he said was that no way in **** would he let his kids go to Arkansas to play for him because he's nothing but a liar.

I wonder if this will affect his recruiting at all. If it was just once, that'd be one thing. But since Petrino has such a track record of doing this kind of thing, you've got to wonder about how parents will view him as a potential mentor for their child and whether they'll be willing to take the chance on him. After all the attention this story has gotten from media outlets around the country (all of which have been highly negative), there's no way he can sweep it under the rug.

Add in that two of his first draft picks (first "recruiting class", if you will) with the Falcons are from Arkansas and you wonder why on earth Arkansas would put themselves in this position. They had to know that Anderson and Houston would take this badly and would be very negative about the whole thing and that there's certainly a likelihood that they'd tell anyone who would listen exactly how they feel.

The whole thing stinks to high ****. It's a shame; I used to kinda root for Arkansas as a side team, but forget that now. They sold their soul just like Alabama did. Hopefully it will net them terrible results.

He's a good college coach that's why. I really don't think this is going to hurt our recruiting, ****, we might possibly start getting good QBs for once. We've never really been a QB friendly school (see Mitch Mustain).

ESPN will talk about it until the next sensational story hits the skids.

He "was" a great college coach. But kids are influenced by their parents, and as a parent, there are much better coaches to choose from in the SEC. For SEC coaches, you have Mark Richt, Tommy Tuberville, Phillip Fulmer, Urban Meyer, Les Miles, Nick Saban, and Steve Spurrier that I would prefer coaching my kids over Petrino. If you are a prospect interested in playing for an SEC school, Petrino would get last dib's on recruits, especially with the horrendous publicity he's getting through all of this. I assure you it will hurt your recruiting. Petrino did a good job of making something out of nothing at UoL, so I think he can be somewhat successful at Arkansas. But you guys won't win more than 6 games next season, and your recruiting class is definitely going to take a hit.
