What He Said

Orson Spencer Swindle Hall Mellencamp on Bobby Bowden:
Please remember that in the case of the Bowden family, the coach equals the program, something entirely separate from the school, and not really something tied to the school in any substantive way, like in the form of a library or some other non-footballin’ related thing like that.
Exactly so. The Bowdens are about the Bowdens, and everyone and everything else are, at best, secondary

That's what I can not abide. I want my coach to love the place he coaches for or at least look like he's drank the cool aid.
We never got that from Terry and he showed his team what mattered the most when he left them in the middle of the season.
