A tough decision awaits Florida State officials. Do they push Bobby Bowden, 80, out the door at the end of the season, or do they welcome the legendary coach back for the 2010 season?
Corey Clark of the Tallahassee Democrat details two exchanges Bowden had with reporters Saturday night after the Seminoles were outscored, 19-0, in the fourth quarter of a 40-21 loss to Clemson.
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."
