Let's put it this way Porter. Petrino as Plan B comes from the same that had RichRod as Plan A. If that group would have had their way, which they didn't, I'd dare say the football program would not have had my support today. The Plan B notion here I still contend is BS because it wouldn't have flown past the man holding the gavel.
That same group was up to some things in October and November of that year (family members as well) that came very close to "screwing the pooch" so badly we would have found Coach Moore left interviewing the Jim Levitt's of NCAA football, again.
While the two groups are on the "same side" today, there is still a divide that can be described using the analogy of the aisle on Capital Hill. Both want what they consider to be "best" for the University, but don't agree on how to get there. They didn't then, and they still have a hard time working in a bi-partisan nature today.
