ESPN's "Outside the Lines" takes a look at the Florida State academic scandal. After the jump, David Ridpath, an assistant professor of sports administration at Ohio University, discusses the report. Thanks to Rod!
Bobby Bowden resigned under pressure Tuesday, ending a 34-year run as Florida State coach. Bowden, 80, who has been a head coach for 44 years, won 388 games — second to Joe Paterno's 393 — and two national championships. He will get a chance to add one more victory to his total when he coaches the 6-6 Seminoles in a bowl game.
Bowden: "Both of us made errors. We probably scored on some of their errors — I didn't keep up with it. But we'd turn the ball over and they’d go down and score. Then we'd turn it over and they didn't score. They'd turn it over back. And the game kind of went that way. We felt very comfortable. We knew it was a battle.
"How late was it 24-21 in our favor? How late did it get? Did that get into the fourth quarter?"
Reporter: "Nine and a half minutes left."
Bowden: "Left in the game?"
Bowden: "So you're feeling comfortable, but you know that it ain't won yet. Then of course the dam broke."
