Bowden's Legacy

In a season that can't end soon enough (who would've ever thought I would say that about football), I can't help but think about how Bowden will be remembered as he leaves FSU. The official version will show him active on the sidelines with Deion, Charlie, Chris, and all the other greats. If the last decade will get any mention, it will be accompanied with some sad music and white wash it as an old man who couldn't keep it.

However, I think this last decade should make us look at the first two with more scrutiny. Until 1993, Bowden was best known for Wide Rights and always coming just short of reaching the mountain top. If it weren't for the odd phenomon of polls, we wouldn't have won the national championship in 1993 either thanks to another big game loss against Notre Dame.

The high point of FSU football, from 1998-1999, came during low points for both UF and Miami. Miami was either on probation or still feeling the affects. While UF still had Spurrier, they were head long into the Doug Johnson era and had two of the most disappointing years in Spurrier's tenure in Gainesville.
