Below is an instructional video for Clemson fans if their head football coach Tommy Bowden doesn’t get off his VERY HOT rear end and start coaching his football team.
Of course, we are kidding, but wouldn’t Oliver Cromwell have been a hell of a head football coach? In the movie Cromwell (a great movie by the way), Oliver Cromwell is played by Richard Harris, who we would cast as the type of head coach that Clemson really needs, and Sir Alec Guinness plays King Charles I, who is dressed up like a “dandy” at the end of the video clip. The problem for Clemson fans is that Tommy Bowden has way too much King Charles I in him, and to little Oliver Cromwell. The really bad news for Tommy Bowden is that Oliver Cromwell and Parliament had Charles’ head chopped off on January 30, 1649. Could the same fate, non-literal of course, be awaiting Tommy Bowden if the ’08 season doesn’t go right? We are hearing some very troubling things from Clemson fans on Tommy Bowden’s future which we will share when the Week 1 Coaches Hot Seat Rankings come out on Tuesday morning. Bottom-Line for Tommy Bowden AND Clemson AD Terry Don Phillips: Mediocrity is no longer going to be accepted at Clemson.
