All right, so after Monday’s “emotional” meeting with Seminole brass, Bobby Bowden will apparently meet with University officials again tomorrow, because twelve extra hours of thinking is sure to change the mind of everyone involved, entirely:
Speaking at his home Monday evening, Bowden tells The Associated Press that he is still sifting through “options presented to him.” Bowden met with Florida State President T.K. Wetherell and athletic director Randy Spetman for an hour Monday morning.
Those options being, “You can be trotted out for fundraisers or you can trot off to a cruise ship.” Whatever his role from here on out with the team, Bowden is done coaching, and everything between now and the official statement is just posturing on somebody’s part. (Although it does lend entertaining credence to the message-board conspiracy theorists claiming that Bowden’s wife, Ann, a vocal critic of the university, is the one pulling the strings and Lady Macbeth-ing this thing into an uproar.)
