Bobby Bowden: I had prostate cancer surgery 4 years ago

This morning, Bobby Bowden is announcing that four years ago he had surgery for prostate cancer but didn't disclose it to anyone other than his family.

Bowden is going public this morning in conjunction with his role as a compensated spokesman for On The Line, a national prostate cancer education initiative.

In making the announcement, Bowden states that he didn't tell anyone about his diagnosis or the surgery for fear that it would impact recruiting.  "What I knew was something like that happens to a coach and your opponents find out about it, the first thing they say is 'Don't go to Florida State, Coach Bowden is about to die'."  

"If I knew then what I know now, I would have considered it my moral duty to bring it out in the open.  I thought it was the right thing to do then, but that's not the message now." 

Bowden says he is now cancer free, thanks to the fine work of Dr. Joe Camps.  Camps, who played for Bowden, admitted Bowden to the hospital (under a fictitious name) at midnight to keep the secret.  The surgery took less than an hour, after which Bowden was brought to a secure part of the hospital for recovery.  He was discharged by 5AM.  

No TV Tuesday

Unfortunately, the gods have decided that there will be no live football on TV tonight.

For those looking for a fix, we might suggest watching Tom Brady's effort from Monday Night Football.  

32-48, 517 yards, 4 TDs, 1 freak pic; but truly an impressive, command performance of his offense.  

Jerry Kill update

Team doctor Pat Smith updated Coach Kill's status a few minutes ago.  

Smith said that he anticipates Kill making a full recovery and has a gut feeling that Coach will be back on the sidelines for this Saturday's game.  

Smith added that Kill is anxious to get back to coaching and that Smith believes Kill will be released from the hospital sooner rather than later.

Smith stated that Kill's condition is a "benign seizure disorder" that many people have and live normal lives with.  

Scoring offense

Just taking a look at the national leaders in scoring offense...

A lot of teams up top as expected...#2 - #10 in the nation are:  Georgia Tech, Arkansas, South Carolina, Stanford, Baylor, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Florida State, Oregon.  

But, #1 is ....  Washington State!  Same team that scored a total of 144 points in all of 2009 has scored 123 in it's first two games this season.  The Cougars put up 64 against Idaho State and 59 versus UNLV.  Credit Paul Wulff and offensive coordinator Todd Sturdy for sticking with their plan.  

The opposing defenses are about to get a little tougher for the Cougars though.  This weekend they travel to San Diego State before opening up the Pac 12 portion of their schedule at Colorado and at UCLA.
