I think that's similar to what would probably happen here but riding out the storm for the next couple of years won't be easy.
I'm not condoning what Petrino, Pitino, or any other coach that has done something this despicable but it's not like Petrino is the first or worst that would have been caught and kept his job.
Pitino had an affair. It wasn't with an employee of the university that he personally hired.
Boeheim didn't do anything except for make an ill-advised statement.
Petrino lied to the police, his family and his employer. He violated state/school rules about inappropriate conduct with an underling. He basically hired a girl to screw on the university's dime and time.
Would you still be behind him if they won 6 games last year?
