I think the timing is just not right for a change regardless of the record this year. FIrst, Petrino is still radioactive. He could go somewhere next year, but a upper level school (in football) will not be an option. Kentucky is a real possibility if Joker Phillips continues to underwhelm. Also, as other have pointed out, CGC's record and proximity to a nat'l championship (2 yrs removed) make it a difficult sale. I do think Petrino would "play ball" with the AU way for a chance to get back into major college football. I could see them bringing him on in some special assistant to AD capacity for a year and then forcing CGC out the following year if he doesn't win like they think he should.
