IAmRight: Yeah, all that stuff is about what people were writing about Paterno a year and a half or so ago.
Lost Thought 00: Smart man. He doesn't want anyone looking too closely at his program's history, either.
CastorTroy: IAmRight: Yeah, all that stuff is about what people were writing about Paterno a year and a half or so ago.Agreed. People have asked me if I'm "happy" that Bowden is now the I-A wins leader. I just give them the glare.
Devo: IAmRight: Yeah, all that stuff is about what people were writing about Paterno a year and a half or so ago.Yeah can we stop sainting these guys. Most of them are turning a blind eye to things that give them a competitive advantage.
bluorangefyre: "It's not something we can rejoice about," said Bowden. "The Bowden family cannot rejoice, although I wish I could."Way to prove that you'll always be an asshole!/yeah I know he said its not the way he wanted it//but still, why say what he said?///also, didn't he try to get some other wins added to his record?
born_yesterday: "The fact I knew Joe personally, I'm probably like a lot of the kids who played for him. I hate it for Joe and his family, but the worst part is what happened to those kids and what Jerry Sandusky did."

Lawrence Phillips assaulted his ex-girlfriend and dragged her down a flight of stairs by her hair? Eh, give him a slap on the wrist and let him suit up for the national title game. Most people are predicting Florida will win, and our program can't take another embarrassing loss in a bowl game. We do things The Right Way at 'ole NU!"
farbekrieg: Considering bowden heard the criticism and some of it well deserved for the 'Criminoles' for a very good portion of his tenture, at the very least I hope there is a maximum amount of transparency and nothing went unreported.On the other hand Joepa had his knob slobbed for "doing it the right way." a horrible misconception in retrospect, only to find out he was a self centered glory hog who thought only of the program he had built and his own legacy.I think I owe a bit of a tip of the cap to Mr Bowden I had judged him too harshly given the activities of his peers. Perhaps im just getting very cynical with age but my opinion now is no top 50 team in NCAA division 1 football is clean, some just deflect investigation and have complicit locals who know how to sweep things under the rug.
FLMountainMan: As far as player arrests, they were never as bad as Ohio State or UF during the Urban Meyer era.
