You didn't wake up this morning expecting to contend with rumors of former Auburn Tigers coach Terry Bowden taking over the Akron Zips. None of us did. But thanks to one report flying around Twitter, we must now take a hard look at ourselves and what it means to be alive in the universe.
Here's where it all started:
Bowden is presently running the North Alabama Lions, a Division II operation that functions as a safety net for SEC players who can't quite stick around at the top level. Like Florida Gators star cornerback Janoris Jenkins, a likely first-round NFL Draft pick, for instance.
He's the son of Bobby Bowden and the brother of various other Bowdens. You'd think he has no connections whatsoever with a small school in Ohio, but, yep, he spent a year as an Akron assistant in the 1980s.
