Bobby Petrino, Arkansas and Geography

The University of Arkansas announced that Bobby Petrino would be their new football coach tonight.

Petrino, in kissing up to his new employer and Razorback fans, said in his news conference that the University's fans could be found "all the way from Fayetteville, to Little Rock, to West Memphis."

If you draw a line given those three cities and the state's roads, that's not exactly a large area. It doesn't even cover half the state of Arkansas. Maybe the coach should have studied a map on the way to the press conference.

Now, if he had said the Razorbacks had fans "from Fayetteville, to Texarkana, to Crosset, to Paragould and back again," he would have hardly left anybody out.
