Clemson Players Say Bowden Deserved Firing

Yep, you read the post right.  Clemson quarterback Cullen Harper said head coach Tommy Bowden deserved his pink slip, “It’s what he deserved,” Harper said.

The Tigers started off the season ranked 8th in the nation but got spanked by unranked Alabama in Atlanta by 24 points.

Bowden has been at Clemson ten years.  This season was supposed to produce at ACC title.  He didn’t and now he is gone, but had a few words to say.

Bottom line, he never won the ACC.  Wake Forest and Maryland went from league dogs to the ACC title while Bowden was at Clemson.  He never won a big game  say those who cover the team.

The Tigers are 3-3.  Bowden is just another coach who didn’t bring what Danny Ford did, a national tite.

    Cullen is just mad he got benched. He has not lived up to the hype of last season and he deserved to get benched. Bowden stood by him and belived in him for two seasons when everyone was wanting to see korn play. Cullen is not the better QB and it was a slap in the face to Bowden. Bowden did deserve to be fired but Cullen also deserved to be benched. That is being a bad sport something you learn not to be in little league. I think that falls on his father who apperantly did not teach him that, beacause he is saying the same thing about Tommy. If it wasent for Tommy, Harper would be playing in a AA program or a Junior College somewhere.

    It is a sad situation because the Clemson fans I know are die hard and really crave a winner.

    Cullen Harper was frustrated and he felt like he was being blamed for the club’s problem.

    Tommy knew the heat was getting hot and was trying to get a spark. I understand that.

    Bottom line, after ten years it was time for Clemson to move on. The school did right by him. T
