The job status of Arkansas Razorbacks football coach Bobby Petrino remains unsettled after he was suspended Thursday night. There have been no real updates as we've entered Week 2 of MotorcycleGate, a scandal much better dubbed Hawgpanky.
However, news could start happenin', based on a tweet by Arkansas Democrat-Gazette columnist Wally Hall:
Petrino reportedly meeting with Long.— Wally Hall (@WallyLikeItIs) April 10, 2012
Few are expecting Petrino to be fired for lying to his boss about keeping a state-funded mistress on the payroll. A wrist-slappin' suspension for a game or two, along with a financial penalty and perhaps some time away from the program over the summer, are more likely penalties. Arkansas has a lot of money tied up in keeping the boosters happy, and the boosters seem to like something about winning 10 or so games a year.
