Live-Blogging Bobby Petrino (Arkansas. For Now.)

8:40 a.m. CT -- I'm late for Bobby Petrino. Which is dangerous, because he might be coaching a different team by the time you get there.

8:44 a.m. CT -- Running the ball is important. "I'm not saying we're going to be a ball control team." Well, yeah.

8:45 a.m. CT -- On the no early scholarship rule: Depends on how it's enforced. "I understand if it's a written offer." This is a man who knows about written and unwritten offers.

8:48 a.m. CT -- "The No. 1 thing I wanted to do with the cover [of the media guide] is not have me on it." One less thing to burn when he leaves town.

8:50 a.m. CT -- He talks about Facebook -- what are they? -- "friends." He seems uncomfortable with the concept itself.

8:55 a.m. CT -- What does he think about Nick Saban's agent ideas, give "your brief experience with the NFL." I'm not going out of my way on the job-jumping jokes; it just keeps coming up. (For the record, he thinks it might be a difficult thing to do.)
