Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Bowden out at Clemson

Monday October 13, 2008

Announcing coaching changes during the season is nothing new around these parts (Ron Zook, Ray Goff), but the high-profile and abrupt moves at Auburn and now Clemson makes one wonder if panic selling has creeped over from Wall Street to the college football world. Sylvester Croom is coming to Knoxville this weekend, you know.

Clemson fans might consider Bowden their Jim Donnan – Bowden was reasonably successful (72-45), went to bowl games, but never got the Tigers to an ACC or even divisional title. But making the change is a two-part process. Who can they get, and can the new guy do any better?

Current Clemson commitments, like five-star safety Craig Loston, are bailing. I can’t help thinking about Signing Day surprise Dwayne Allen who switched to Clemson from Georgia last February. The Dawgs sure could use the help at tight end, and the situation at Clemson can’t be what Allen bargained for. A.J. Harmon has to be feeling pretty good in Athens right now.

Meanwhile, Clemson (former) starting QB Cullen Harper uses the moment to take a parting shot.
