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.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
