Bobby Petrino led the Razorbacks to an 11-2 record in 2011, but his winning ways weren't enough to overcome the momentum of his recent scandal. Arkansas fired Petrino on Tuesday, potentially leaving the program in a state of chaos leading up to the 2012 season. Petrino's reputation has been tarnished, but does that mean he'll never be on the sidelines again?
Agree with the firing?
Several big-name coaches have been fired in the past few years, but Petrino's firing seemed to happen with an uncommon swiftness.
Petrino wins football games -- that's not in question here -- but given the severity of Arkansas' statements in his firing, teams may see him as a liability rather than an asset.
Arkansas in 2012?
The Razorbacks ran roughshod over opponents in 2011, but considering how important Petrino was to their success, they might find themselves falling out of contention this season.
