Bowden Wraps Up 2007 Season

Highlights of Tommy Bowden's Thursday teleconference:

On his thoughts about the 2007 season:

"With everything toward the end of the year, as you look at the year in a complete picture, I was pretty well pleased. It seems as if you're never satisfied...It seems you're always one play away from a win. It seemed that way in our four losses."

On being close, but coming up short again:

"When you lose by 20 or 30 you're not one play away. I'd much rather be saying that we lost in overtime in our bowl game than Oklahoma getting beat by 30. A some point we're going to make that one play that will put us in the championship or the BCS. It will happen, eventually."

On the status of his players considering a jump to the NFL:

"I'm meeting with those guys next week. I talked to the NFL today. I have all their projections and what their reports are going to say. I think the NFL is getting in touch with the players today. I'd rather talk to them and let them talk to the press. I'd feel more comfortable about it after I talked to them (Note: Bowden also said none of his players were projected to be a first round draft choice)."

On whether he expects most of them to come back:

"I would feel good after talking to them today. We've got a good track record with giving good advice...I think it's going to be pretty obvious what they need to do. We'll share some of that information next week."

On whether he expects any players to transfer:

"That conversation will come up in my team meeting. I'll be meeting with a couple of guys who might express and interest. I could very easily see that. That's a common occurrence this time of the year. There will be some surprises. But that will happen next week."

On whether there will be any staff responsibility changes:

"Not at this time. But we'll do a thorough evaluation of the program. There might be some minor changes, maybe on special teams. But I'll talk to Vic (Koening) and Rob (Spence). It won't be anything major."
