Blog Hound: Bloggers Pleased With Bowden's Decision To Leave
Published October 14, 2008
Over the past 24 hours, Clemson football coach Tommy Bowden's decision to step down was the most popular topic. Most bloggers were pleased to see Bowden go and were intrigued by comments from Clemson QB Cullen Harper that Bowden got "what he deserved." The Dodgers-Phillies NLCS was highly discussed after the Phillies took a 3-1 lead in the series last night. News that Cowboys QB Tony Romo would be out for four weeks due to a broken pinkie finger was a hot topic. Bloggers also speculated about NBC's John Madden's announcement that he would be ending his streak of calling 476 regular season games, as Madden will not travel to Tampa for NBC's Seahawks-Buccaneers telecast Sunday night. Rounding out the top five was the Rays taking a 2-1 lead over the Red Sox in the ALCS. Visit www.sportsmediachallenge.com for more info or see chart below.
