Well, here’s your one year caretaker, that hopefully can just step out of the way of Petrino Jr. running the O and the staff running the D. If he intends to come in and clean house, well talk about shitting on the crapper. It seems like he intends to come in and literally just be a figurehead, but if that is the case, why even waste the money on someone who has no intended contribution to the upcoming season?
