Speaking of Rumors

According to the AP, Coach Petrino of Atlanta is quitting to become the coach at Arkansas. He didn't last a season. Of course, losing your best player to jail, and then trading your backup in the off-season didn't help. The best part of this is that it is unconfirmed, as their source was a "...person was speaking on condition of anonymity because the school had not made an official announcement." I guess the Falcons haven't either.

If there is a pet peeve I have with modern print journalism, it is the use of "anonymous sources".

Anyway, see Bobby Petrino resigns as Atlanta Falcons coach after 13 games, heads to Arkansas

Updated, 12/12/07, Over night this came true, so anonymous source pans out.
