Bobby Petrino is the gift that keeps on giving. On Wednesday, Deadspin posted records of the former Arkansas football coach’s cell phone activity since September. On Thursday, they posted that Petrino was in regular contact with Alison Melder, a winner of the 2008 Miss Bikini USA and Miss Motorcycle Mania competitions. Deadspin says Petrino traded at least 200 texts with Melder, who is now a senate assistant for the Republican Party of Arkansas, from September-November, though to the best of their research, no calls were exchanged. Oh yeah, and Melder sent Petrino seven picture messages. We’re guessing those pictures weren’t of sample voting ballots.
I only have a few things to say. One, at 51, Petrino was impressively pulling more 20-year-olds than most college guys. Two, how did this guy even find time to coach with all the texting he was doing? And lastly, how dumb could this guy be to do all of his pimping from a university-issued phone knowing the records were available to the public? It’s obvious he thought he could do anything he pleased, but that’s just pure stupidity. You always have separate phones for your mistresses — that’s just common pimp knowledge.
