Bamalaw, I agree. They should fire CBP, settle with the girlfriend, and go on with their lives. CBP is completely compromised at this point. The genie is not going back in the bottle.
absolutely. They really have no other choice at this point. I almost feel sorry for the Arky Nation, but not quite. They knew ol' bobby was a liar and a slimeball before they hired him. It's not like they didn't know what they were getting. They played with fire, and they're gonna be burned in the thermonuclear explosion(s) to come...

^^This^^ They knew it was a snake when they picked it up!
Bill Clinton wasn't!!!
Short of her resigning, Bobby is boned. Does Arkansas want to fire Petrino even after his Mike Price like behavior? No. They're probably searching for every reason in the world to keep him. But the OP is right. They can't fire her and not fire Petrino. And they sure as hell can't keep them both.
I wouldn't fire him unless there's a Tiger-esque harem ready to go all TMZ on him. Coaches like him don't grow in trees and those that do don't wanna coach at Arky! And save me the self-righteous holier than thou crap...most recruits and their parents could care less.
Suspend him for 90 days, force him to pay some of the settlement and deal with the short-term PR storm that will blow over by fall. What's that old saying: Never make long-term decisions based in short-term emotion. That's my unsolicited advice and I'm not not a lawyer, but I did sleep in a Holiday Inn last night....with my wife of course.
At this point in time I don't think there is enough accurate information out there to make any assumptions or predictions about the outcome for the young lady in this situation. The beautiful thing for her is that BP has so completely mishandled his part of the situation that he has almost literally given her the keys to the bank. Of course her name and reputation are pretty well trashed. She may turn out to be a "victim", but rehabilitation of her reputation, helped by gobs of $, should be eventually possible. I do wonder how much she will enjoy living in Fartrip, Montana and going by the name of Karen Nolastname, but there is a price to be paid for just about everything you do in life. So, I guess I am disagreeing - for now - with the assumption that she HAS to be fired too, because we just don't know what her level of culpability is. I do want to thank the entire Arky nation for such an entertaining interval in an otherwise relatively dull off season.........
