Pressure building on Bowden after loss

Man, the Tiger Nation is in full meltdown following the devastating loss to Wake Forest. The Tigernet message board has gone insane. I posted something last night questioning whether former coach Danny Ford actually turned water into wine and made the blind see, and was promptly labeled a "stupid POS." (POS is apparently Internet shorthand for "piece of shit.") The poster did apologize, but, man, it's getting ugly over there.

Anyway, on to what the media has to say.

HOT SEAT WATCH: Wake Forest fans taunted coach Tommy Bowden during Saturday's game. Ouch. Poppa Bowden of FSU, the winningest coach in Division I history, urges patience. (More here.)

And here's an interesting column from John Brasier of the Anderson Independent-Mail. He says it's too early to call for Bowden's head, and urges the university to let him finish out the season.

PREPPING FOR FSU: Clemson's Tommy Bowden says the Tigers have got to get ready to take on Florida State. Uh, you think? Also, Bowden says running back Yusef Kelly could play this Saturday. Finally, a little good news.

CU-FSU NOTES: The voluminous pregame notes for Saturday's game against Florida State are posted. And the Duke game on Nov. 15 will kick off at 1 p.m. There is no TV coverage.
