Chick-Fil-A Bowl: Tommy Bowden Chokes...Again

Earlier this season, Clemson coach Tommy Bowden publicly took his university president to task for setting academic standards that were supposedly too tough for the football players he was attempting to recruit.

Clemson University and its fans must love such a class act—especially one who folds like a cheap lawn chair in big games.

Tommy Boy did it again in Monday's Chick-Fil-A Bowl, as Clemson fell to Auburn 23-20 in overtime. You really have to wonder about Tiger loyalists who are apparently satisfied with a guy who's yet to win an ACC championship.

In nine years at Clemson, Bowden has failed to win a single conference title—despite having recruited decent players. What's more, Tommy Boy has won only three bowl games with the Tigers, and has now lost two postseason contests in a row.

And still Clemson recently gave him a huge raise and contract extension.

And the only one smiling is Tommy Boy—on his way to the bank.
