Jeff Bowden: The Good Son

Jeff Bowden, ever the faithful son, falls on the sword for his father and gets the axe from the Seminoles.

Fans have been rushing to blame this on Jeff Bowden, simply because they cannot blame it on Robert Cleckler Bowden and his 364 career wins. He, like several other coaches, has reached the point where he is generally unassailable by the university brass (well, unassailable without a completely crap season or some major Bobby Knight-style faux pas), and Bobby hasn’t reached the point where it’s time to completely close the curtains on the old man. This isn’t a 1-10 team, after all.

At least, it’s not yet a 1-10 team, but it is a team, and a program, in decline. I have no doubts about that, and a more competitive ACC isn’t helping the Really Old Ball Coach look good (Joe Paterno is the Ancient Ball Coach). While Bowden hasn’t plumbed the depths that the Ancient Ball Coach has in Happy Valley, a lot of that has to do with the great depth of talent Florida has. Even when you can’t buy a recruit, it helps to be in a sunny state that’s chock full of good football talent who don’t want to go play cold weather games in January.

While it’s only right to fire Jeff Bowden (because he DOES suck), it might be time to give the old man a gold watch, as well. It’s kind of hard for octogenarians to recruit today’s youth, and reputation, history, and loyalty won’t get you very far when the other school is winning right now. Flordia State needs to start winning, RIGHT NOW, or it's time to get a hot young coaching prospect.

Bobby Petrino, perhaps?

Mark Richt. Not Petrino.

As for Bowden, my thought's this. Jeff
deserved to be fired and Wake coming in
to the Reservation and shutting out the
Noles was the nail in his coffin. Update your resume son and don't EVER show your face in Tallahassee again.

In terms of Bobby, let me remind you of
what happened the last time people were
clamoring for a coach's head. Remember
Paterno a year ago? Everyone telling him the game passed him by and it was time for him to leave. What does he go
out and do? Win the Big Ten, then beat
...well, it's not important what he did
damnit. He proved his cynics and every
last bastico with an opinion wrong, just like Bobby will. Watch. :)

Hey, I hope he does prove me wrong. A healthy Florida (the state, not just the school) is good for college football. The hotter Florida, State, and Miami are, the better college football is when they get knocked off by Podunk University (or Louisville, I guess).
