Tony Barnhart takes a look at the best and worst of the 2008 college football season, and makes a few predictions, too. Among them is Bobby Bowden's retirement.
There's no question, though, the 79-year-old Bowden will be back, as will his defensive coordinator.
Miami athletic director Kirby Hocutt hasn't had any conversations with coach Randy Shannon about a contract extension, but Shannon has his "100 percent support." Nothing like putting that support in writing, eh? It's probably wise to wait another year.
Gene DeFilippo's decision to fire coach Jeff Jagodzinski might not have the far-reaching impact some would like to see in college football, but it should at least guarantee the next head coach of the Eagles will be there at least three seasons.
Boston College defensive coordinator Frank Spaziani is gaining more support each day to take over the program, and linebacker Mark Herzlich is leading the charge.
