Bobby Petrino is revered as a top-level college football coach. He has the reputation of an offensive genius and has earned the national respect of his coaching peers and everyone associated with college football. He was just about to take himself, along with the University of Louisville football program, to that level in 2007 but in January of 2007 his abrupt and selfish departure to the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons cost both Petrino and the University that perceived national respect they both so strongly coveted. The Petrino led Cards had just finished the 2006 season with a 12-1 record, an Orange Bowl victory and a school-high ranking of #3 in the country after beating the then #3 team WVU in the Blackout game at Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium. On the night before my birthday, Louisville had 1 heartbreaking loss at Rutgers that most likely costs them a spot in the national championship game (I still hate Ito).
