On Thursday T.K. Wetherell told the Lakeland Ledger that in a Nov. 30 conversation with Bowden -- just the two of them -- the final decision was Bowden's. That's a bit different than how the old coach says it went down when he asked for another year ("They wouldn't let me have it").
Now Bowden responds with a comment that sounds half like the folksy coach we know and half bitter.
Since both the ex-Prez and ex-Coach are gentlemen who say they don't want a war of words, chances are this is the last we'll hear on the subject -- at least from the two main players in the drama. Others can speculate, but if it's true that only Wetherell and Bowden were in the Nov. 30 meeting, the true story of what happened will live and die with them.
