Tommy Bowden lauds Tulane; weighs in on Clemson, LSU

Post by OGSB »

Bowden gave credit to his predecessor at Tulane.
“I inherited some great players that Buddy Teevens had left so I really hit it at a good time,” Bowden said. “The people here treated me really good. Sandy Barbour was the athletic director at that time who really tried to give me everything we needed to be successful.”
The job Bowden did at Tulane drew the attention of Clemson, who made Bowden an offer he could not refuse.
“At that particular time, the Saints were not winning, LSU was not winning so Tulane going undefeated, it was a tough decision to leave,” Bowden said.
Bowden is impressed with the job Willie Fritz is doing at Tulane.
“He has been really cordial to me,” Bowden said. “He has given me invitations to come back. He has treated me really good. When they hired him, I thought he would be the right guy and he is the right guy. I hope they can keep him because I think he will continue to have more success which will make him an attractive candidate somewhere else. I hope he stays. He’s the right guy at the right time.”

Yeah:
When he spoke at the luncheon, addressing the crowd, Bowden addressed the student-athletes in the crowd, strongly encouraging them to consider attending Tulane.
“You can win and win big at Tulane and it is a great academic university in a great city,” Bowden said.

He's just being nice...what do you want him to say, Fritz should bounce at the earliest opportunity? We all know that's going to happen regardless of what Bowden says, might as well take the high road.

Bowden is a "southern gentleman". He's being nice to his hosts. I don't see him mentioning anything about Winnebagos but he sure did then.

"You can win and win big at Tulane" .... what he didn't say was "...and use that success to get a job at a P5 school."

Actually, I think he is saying "...and use that success to get a job at a P5 school."
