Envy and jealousy: Tommy Bowden punked edition

I know it’s not a blogger’s post, but there’s so much to love about this short article about Tommy Bowden’s lack of class after the titanic struggle with Furman (starting, of course, with the aforementioned classlessness), that I had to give it the ol’ Envy and Jealousy tip of the cap.

Bowden’s jerkiness in taking a crack at Carr (who won, by the way, Tommy) is deeply obnoxious. It’s bad enough that I hope Lloyd Carr gets a chance to fire a cheap shot of his own when all is said and done.

But even if he does, it’s unlikely he can top the opener of this piece:

Guess all those Peach Bowl appearances have gone to Clemson coach Tommy Bowden’s head.

There’s no author credited, which is a shame, but whoever you are out there at the Detroit Free Press, damn, that was a good one. I bet even Spurrier wishes he’d said it.

    Tommy Bowden, classless? What a surprise!Considering his atrocious record at Climpson, I can’t believe he had the audacity to open his big mouth! I’m still amazed, with all the money and support from the Clemson faithful, that they put up with his best: mediocrity. In all his years there and competing in the crappy ACC, he still can’t manage to consistently win and can’t EVER get them to win their division, much less a championship. Pathetic.
    Suits me just fine – hope he’s still there when we play ’em in a couple of years.
    Thanks for this – I needed a good laugh today!


  2. I was surprised he said that. I mean, what he said is true, but… Karma, people.

    Sorry he offended the Michigan faithful. The comment was made in reference to how competitive the Southern Conference has become in the last 10 years. There are some very good teams in that league. In many cases, players go there that could play for ACC and SEC teams.
    Do not worry about the start. You only need to win your conference to go to a BCS game. It could be worse. You could be a Notre Dame fan. I saw today they were last in EVERY offensive catergory in the NCAA.
    Ally, I will not bore you with details. But Tommy Bowden has a good record in the ACC. He has wond 4 of the last 5 against FSU, he is 1-1 against Miami, 1-0 against Tennessee, 6-2 against South Carolina and Clemson has qualified for a bowl every year since his arrival. So yes, we will take his record.
