BOWDEN ON BOWDEN

Evidently Bobby Bowden isn’t too terribly worried about his legacy being impacted by the Noles latest scandal.

Florida State coach Bobby Bowden isn't concerned about his legacy being stained by the school's current academic cheating scandal.

Bowden, whose 373 career coaching wins are two more than Penn State's Joe Paterno, takes the Seminoles into Monday's Music City Bowl game against Kentucky short three dozen players, most of which were involved in the scandal or other team violations. Some of the missing players are hurt.

"I don't think you can ruin my legacy. How can you ruin it? What I've done, I've done. You can't take it away, can you?" -- Bobby Bowden

In an interview with ESPN's Jack Arute, Bowden confirmed that at least 22 of the 36 football players who will miss the Music City Bowl will do so because of their involvement in a cheating scandal the school uncovered this summer.
