How does this figure into Bowden's Plans. Mathematically, Joe will have the edge to walk (or hobble) away with the All time wins record, since Bobby will turn the reigns over to Jimbo shortly after Joe completes the first year of his new deal. Otherwise it will be very costy for FSU, in more ways than just $$$.
I suppose it could still be done if PSU loses 90% of their games over the next 3 years, but that's not going to happen. Barring some health issue, the record is Joe's.
It wouldn't surprise me if this is some powerplay by PSU to get Bowden to go ahead and retire. Once that happens, PSU gives Joe his buyout...end of story.
