Disgraced Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino’s motorcycle for sale

Last month, Arkansas football head coach Bobby Petrino was fired after he crashed his motorcycle with a 23-year old blond on the back. It was revealed that married Petrino hired his alleged mistress and copilot Jessica Dorrell on the football staff and gave her a $20,000 cash gift.

Now, Arkansas football fans have the chance to buy Petrino’s infamous motorcycle. Petrino’s 2007 “Hawg Wild” Harley Davidson is for sale on Copart.com. The motorcycle retails at $18,000, though Petrino’s ride will need a few repairs after the highway crash. The current bid is at $4,600, and fans have until May 30. Woo Pig Sooie!

Yale QB forgoes Rhodes Scholarship to play Harvard game

The match up between Yale and Harvard is known to its fans as simply “The Game,” but Yale quarterback Patrick Witt had a tough choice to make when his Rhodes Scholar interview fell on the same day.

The interview was scheduled to take place at Emroy University in Atlanta, Georgia, where Witt is from, Saturday morning, which meant Witt would miss the noon kickoff.

While Witt asked if his interview could be rescheduled,  Elliot Gerson, the American Secretary for the Rhodes Trust told ESPN.com, “We have candidates every year miss games for the interview, the Rhodes Scholarship is an academic award, and is not an award for ‘scholar-athletes,’ despite some popular perception of it in that explicit light.”

Now, the Ivy League senior has decied to forgo his interview to play in the game. “I will be playing in the Yale-Harvard game this Saturday,” Witt said in a press release. “My focus this week is solely on preparing for The Game alongside my teammates and coaches.”

Witt would have been one of 12-16 finalists in the Atlanta region (where he is from) competing for two scholarship awards, but the 22-year old still has two more years of eligibility to apply for the scholarship. Good luck to the Bulldogs this weekend!
