Is this a coup for TW then? I mean he wasn't even on the radar, I didn't think it was even a possibility. Figured he would be looking for a southern school LA-Tech, Houston, etc.

Is it a coup to hire somebody nobody else looked at?

I'm not saying it's a bad hire, just don't think you could call it a coup.

Patience grasshopper. All I can do is pass on whats been told to me in the last few minutes. If I'm wrong, I will man up and admit it. I don't think I'm wrong.

I don't either. This is about the best scenario I could have imagined at this point.

Yeah, this is a pretty good scenario, really. Wasn't Auburn under some pretty big sanctions when he started there, and they still had a strong run (yes, I know it's been over a decade now)?

Well you went from a nobody that no one had ever heard of to a big name successful coach that would have had a great career had he not been thrown under the bus by Auburn's Alumni.

The guy went 11-0 in the sec one season and had auburn in the top 25 in all of his 5 full seasons. This is enormous.

+1.

This has truly been a rollercoaster ride. But it looks like we're gonna finish on a high note! I'd definitely be happy with this hire. TB would bring a lot of instant credibility to Zips football.

Terry Bowden. Keith Dambrot. Rick Rembielak. Chuck Amato. How ya like dem apples, Terry Pluto?! This is AKRON!

Bowden Overview

Certainly would be the best hire of the available coaches. Hopefully it pans-out.

I'm incredibly happy with this hire. The guy has a great football mind, and comes with big time name recognition. He could, perhaps, pull together a mediocre class in the short time available.
