Tuesday nite college football news

Will Florida State University put Bobby Bowden on the road to retirement? A 7-5 record and a second-tier bowl game does not sit well with the Seminole Nation, and the faithful may be ready for the Jimbo Fisher era to begin.

After completing three straight seasons unranked, this latest scandal may do it for the 78 year old Bowden, as up to 25 players may be suspended in an academic scandal. From AP

free-shoes-university.jpg “We have some players not traveling for one reason and some for another, including those who are ineligible for the bowl because of academic issues,” Bowden said in a statement released by the university.

“Kentucky would be a tough opponent when we are at full strength so clearly this will make things more difficult. Our staff is in the process of determining what adjustments we must make for the game.”

Many of the players who won’t be going to Nashville could also be ruled ineligible for some games next season for their connection to a cheating scandal earlier this year.

Federal privacy laws prohibit the school from releasing names.

“We don’t know what that number is going to end up being exactly, but we know that’s a rough figure,” assistant athletic director Rob Wilson said Tuesday. “It’s an issue where we’re being extra cautious.”

Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans

I miss New Orleans, and I’m not alone.

The Times takes a poignant look at the community, the people, and the spirit of a city that is only a shell of its former self.

…the accounts from people who left New Orleans after the storm, the missing or ruined physical landscape is barely half of it. Even more absent now is the human landscape — the network of friends, relations and acquaintances that often, in New Orleans, helps compensate for fragmentary families and neighborhoods that can be dangerous. Life in the city takes place outside the home as much as inside; now, that would not be possible.

“It’s not New Orleans to me,” said Ms. Shanklin, the retired bus driver in Terrebonne Parish. “And I find myself asking, Where are all the people? I see all the empty houses, and I knew once there was people in all those houses.”

“Where are the people, you know? Where are the people?” Ms. Shanklin said. “It’s like somebody threw a bomb on it.”

My small hometown has grown about 15% since Katrina. Most of the new residents are from New Orleans.

It’s sad.
