he got CU football back on the map and set Dabo up to be successful

"I've been working since I was 15 continually until now. I worked 40 hours a week at 15, when it wasn't even legal for 15 year olds to work that many hours."


No Tommy = No Dabo

There's something in these hills.

twists and turns but here we are.....still on our way to the top and A LOT closer than we were!

Will TB want to take Rob Spence and Vic Koenig with him when he takes the next HC job?
My guess is yes and bubble screen will be the highlight of that program's offense.

Koening wasn't the problem.....Spence was!!!!!

sum up the darkness with one event that happened- Someone hired a pilot to fly around the stadium with a trailing banner that read "Fire Ken Hatfield!"

Pretty harsh from an otherwise classy group of folks.

Back during Ray Goff's regime at UGA, a plane was spotted circling Sanford during a game.....it said "Fire Ray Goof"....rumor was that Ray's WIFE arranged it. Funny, if true. Those mutts can get mean when they're not winning....this makes me happy.


Probably true, but hard to forget the Wake Thu nighter among

for getting big checks from Clemson. TDP upped his buyout then fired him.


SEC & Big 12 AD's contacted him?


Posted: Aug 20, 2014 1:38 PM
 

Doubtful.


I can see it

I doubt it was a Texas or Auburn, but I can see a Kentucky, Mississippi State, or Kansas type school kicking the tires. Despite the evidently common idea around here that he was the worst coach ever Bowden has never had a losing season as a head coach, he recruited well, his players graduated and discipline was rarely a problem.

He has his flaws, but overall Bowden is a fairly decent coach.

My Ma[Clemson fan through and through] asked me when T. Bowden was hired who he was. I told her that he came from Tulane and was the son of Bobby Bowden.She asked me why Clemson wanted to hire the spawn of Satan.It took a while before she warmed up to him. Like Kaplony states she liked
him not only for the won-lost record but all of the rest.
This is what the Coot's fans don't understand. Maybe he'll
land some where else. Time will tell.


IMO

it is going to take the absolute right fit for him to get back into coaching at this point. I honestly don't see him at another major program because much like Dabo he wears his religion on his sleeve and most places would want him to tone it down.

I honestly believe that if Turner Gill were to leave Liberty that would be the perfect place for Bowden to return to coaching. The folks at Liberty would not only be more accepting of his beliefs, I think it would be a major plus for him with them. I also believe that at a lower profile school Bowden would really shine.

The last comment is very distasteful and not to mention
blasphemy. I agree that TB has blamed everyone, everything and now God for his failures but you should have stopped there.

your correct you're requires an extra movement with my pinky finger and requires getting my glasses to find the '. Way to much effort to go into this.

I can smell the false confidence and self satisfaction from here. Hoooeey!


I wonder if God can afford Tommy.***

I agree Bowden got us to Dabo!!!!! I was on campus when they fired Danny Ford. I was one of the 300 students on the Presidents front lawn that first evening..... Let me say that the feelings and expectations that I had going into the next season were far from the excitement that I have about this season!!!! So I am not looking in the rear view. GO TIGERS!!!!


Can't he just go away?

[1]
Posted: Aug 20, 2014 12:04 PM
 

Thinks a lot of himself. I have serious doubts any SEC or Big 12 school has rang his phone since he was fired, and only maybe a lower level Conf USA or Big E at the time. What a dope. Go away.


Are you a coot?

Posted: Aug 20, 2014 3:05 PM
 

Because only coots insult Bowden.

There's something in these hills.

When TB was HC, the Coots were terrible and not a top 50 team

Tommy's record against the Coots was all because they weren't good not because he kenw some secret to beating them.


Re: He Would Not Have Dominate USC's team of the Last 5 years

neither were we. its all relative


Translation: No decent football schools wanted me as HC...

Posted: Aug 20, 2014 5:28 PM
 

... even though many T-Netters thought I was the best coach in the world until 10 seconds after they promoted Dabo-- at which point Dabo became the best coach in the world.
