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.

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.
