Headline writers of the world, take a bow:
No word on whether this was an intimate moment between Petrino and the qb, a slow, thorough affair where the two stretched it out and really took a hard look at things before the final release, or whether they just whipped out the thing and took care of things that needed to be take care of before they became unbearable. Dick has release...for the moment.
The swift release of Nathan Dick comes in the shadow of Ryan Mallett vying for the starting job, and is a good move for all concerned: Dick the Younger was pulled for Casey Dick, Dick the Elder, in the season's final game against LSU. He went on to throw the game-winning TD, embarrass his younger brother, and show the universe what it looks like when you get the right Dick in the right place: you score, and score deep THEY'RE TRANSFERRING DAMMIT WE'RE GOING TO DRIVE THIS INTO THE GROUND WHILE WE CAN.
In conclusion, DICK DICK DICK DICK DICK DICK DICK.
