Petrino wreck: What sun?

Posted By on Tue, Apr 10, 2012 at 3:12 PM

The Throwing Anvils blog deconstructs Razorback football coach Bobby Petrino's statement to State Police that sun and wind caused him to be unable to control his motorcycle and avoid leaving the road April 1.

To summarize: He calls B.S.

In short, there’s is simply no way in the world that, on that stretch of highway, at that time of day/year, Bobby Petrino was blinded by the sun, causing him to wreck. It’s not just unlikely; it’s mathematically impossible. It’s similarly ridiculous to suggest that a little tailwind somehow caused any problems driving the motorcycle.

See for yourself.
