‘Fire Petrino’ flyers dumped at UI

Here's a UIdaho Odyssey photo of one of the flyers posted on campus, calling for football coach Paul Petrino's firing. The Odyssey staff has deleted the flyer's expletives.

The frustration of an unknown Vandal football fan boiled over late Monday night, prompting the student to dump hundreds flyers across campus criticizing the current head coach. While most students shake their head in exasperation or leave the Kibbie Dome during halftime of a blowout, a frustrated Vandal instead placed hundreds of flyers on university property demanding that football coach Paul Petrino be fired. During a routine patrol Monday night, campus security noticed an abundance of leaflets outside the Idaho Commons and surrounding area. The leaflets contained a headline that screamed “FIRE PAUL PETRINO” and contained negative information regarding the head coach’s career. Included in the leaflet were Petrino’s overall record at Idaho (3-23) and the fact that Petrino vacated his coaching position with the Atlanta Falcons in the middle of a dismal 2007 season/Josh Grissom, University of Idaho Odyssey. More here.

Question: I believe Hucks Nation already has said that Petrino should be fired. Any other thoughts?
