"Quick Hitches" is a forum for us to put up some quick ideas that don't necessarily demand in-depth analysis. It's sort of a place to put things we've been thinking about. They might be interesting, they might deserve further discussion, or they might be totally worthless. Here's my first quick hitch:
I've heard people floating this "Rich Rodriguez to FSU as Bowden's successor" theory. I simply don't buy it. I think it is WVU paranoia, since it's the same trip Bowden himself made years ago. Rodriguez was born and raised in West Virginia, graduated from WVU, and even coached small college in the state. This is his dream job, and I think he'd prefer to pull a Bowden, and be the big fish in the Big East (like FSU was in the ACC) and play for national championships that way. I'd be kind of surprised if a Bowden didn't follow Bowden, or at least someone with a direct connection to the big man at FSU.
