Former Arkansas head coach Boby Petrino spoke in front of many Razorback fans at the Little Rock Touchdown Club luncheon this week and apologized for the events that surrounded his firing seven years ago. Per ESPN:

Petrino returned to Arkansas, where he coached the Razorbacks for four seasons, for the first time since 2012. In a packed ballroom for a Little Rock Touchdown Club luncheon, Petrino told the audience he was nervous about the speaking engagement, comparing it to game day.

"I wanted to be able to come here and apologize to everybody, the fans, the players, and truly tell you how sorry I am for the way it ended," Petrino said. "But I also wanted to come here and thank you for everything the people in this room and this state did for me and my family. You were great to us." Read more.

And of course the fanbase at the luncheon ate it up by giving him a standing ovation by him putting their program deeper in the well. Go figure.
