At first I was stunned. But I can tell you this: There is no celebrating in the Bowden household today. This is a very tough day for college football.Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden • Upon learning that fellow college football legend Joe Paterno had been stripped of 111 victories — making Bowden the winningest coach in NCAA history, by default. Bowden spent his entire career trying to fight Paterno for the mark, but Paterno finally prevailed after Bowden was forced out following a weak 2009 season. Bowden, by the way, supported the taking down of the Paterno statue, as a way to take away a constant reminder of Sandusky.
