Bobby Bowden will coach his final game at Florida State in the Gator Bowl on New Year’s Day.
Under normal circumstances, Florida State would have likely fallen to a lower bowl with its 6-6 record, but the possibility of keeping Bowden in Florida for his final game matched against his former school was too much for the Gator Bowl to ignore.
Is it just me are does anyone else find this Funny. Bobby B's last game is the Gator bowl well at least he wont have to worry about Tebow this time.
Putting all joking aside though Bobby Bowden is one of the best coaches we will ever see and has had a career only a few have and all dream of. 388 wins, 2 National Championships, 28 consecutive bowl games,14 years straight in the top 5 and I could go on.
The Seminoles will face 18th ranked WVU which is quite ironic since 42 of Bowden's wins were as the head coach of the Mountaineers from 1970-1975 before becoming FSU's coach in 1976. Another interesting fact is that Bowden and the Noles started their streak of 28 straight bowl games with a 32-12 win over the Mountaineers in the 1984 Gator bowl.
Bobby Bowden is a legend and will be sorely missed. It just wont be the same watching the UF FSU game without seeing him pacing the sidelines.
From a Gator fan to a Seminole Legend Thank you for the memories, the tears&cheers and for making Collage football that much better.
