You are now FBS’ all-time leader in wins.
One of the sanctions levied against Penn State this morning was the vacating of wins from 1998 to 2011. After decades of coaching two of the nation’s elite teams, battling neck-and-neck for total win supremacy, Bowden hung ’em up in 2009 while Paterno coached on.
Eleven days after the Freeh Report documented the heartbreaking child-abuse scandal in State College, Pa., Emmert on Monday ordered that Paterno’s 111 wins from 1998-2011 will be vacated.
Paterno finished with 409 wins but now his career record is adjusted to 298 victories.
Bobby Bowden now holds the top spot with 377 victories. Dadgum.
