Bowden is a college football icon with his wins, his wit and that southern charm of his.
It’s easy to see why he has hung around for so long and that may be the problem. When was the last time Florida State was a significant player in the BCS? For that matter when were the Seminoles a significant player in the ACC for more then just half a season?
Along with the Miami Hurricanes, FSU was supposed to dominant this conference for years to come. The problem is someone forgot to tell the rest of the ACC.
Not to mention the NCAA. After they take his wins away for rules violations, what really does he have to play for now?
He probably won’t catch Joe Paterno in all time wins and the rest of the ACC is no longer afraid of the Seminoles. He may not be forced out the door, but he might be gently pushed for coach in waiting Jimbo Fisher.
