It's up to the players to regroup and salvage FSU's season of family discord

Some interesting views on the situation. Here are a couple of examples; "A family in turmoil stands together under fire. They held on tightly Saturday night, when Coach Bobby Bowden and his players walked out of a tunnel at Doak Campbell Stadium, arms linked as they embraced the cheers of the home crowd. The solidarity of Bowden and the Florida State Seminoles football team is admirable. The question remains, how long can they keep it together, arm-in-arm, before disgruntled factions try to break free?" And "Most of the blame for this dysfunctional chaos deservedly rests with the administration — which signed off on this ambiguous state of affairs regarding the timetable of Bowden's departure, coupled with Bowden's own selfish agenda — but there's another share of blame to go around. The players. No matter how screwy things are in the locker room, no matter how many voices are screaming in their ears, no matter how much noise is coming at them from the media and disgruntled fans, the Seminoles ultimately decide who wins and who loses every weekend. No question these are horrible circumstances under which to try to hang on to your competitive spirit. Imagine two parents who are always screaming at each other, and kids hearing that bickering every day. At some point they just want to cup their hands over their ears and scream: "Enough! Stop it already!" No doubt "parents" are arguing at FSU, despite the denials. Who is the head of the household? Bowden? Coach-in-waiting Jimbo Fisher? Longtime defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews?"
