Arkansas faithful have been through the coaching equivalent of having your mom leave the meth lab proprietor for the traveling salesman with the clammy handshake, and as the sports beat carousel grinds into motion for fall, take a look between the lines at the coverage from Fayetteville, and the fine bouquet of "FAMILY!" and "TRADITION!" and "STABILITY!" wafting from every passage....with just a soupcon of "...RIGHT?"
Arkansas News Bureau: Bobby Petrino knows where he came from! Bobby Petrino respects his elders! Bobby Petrino's one a'them faincy triple-option folks, but he's not here to hurt you!
Arkansas Democrat Gazette: Bobby Petrino loves his kid! And has always given him a seven-minute warning to pack his things before beating a path out of town! His family is settling into the community nicely!
KTHV Little Rock: Bobby Petrino is looking forward to August! Look at his eyes flickering back and forth. Now, trust him. Just this once. Because this is the only time he'll ever mean it when he says he'll still be here in two months.

Yes, everything's coming up Bobby. Um, except the Falcons. Ow.
