  • Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports spoke with Bobby Bowden, asking his opinion on the current state of Florida State and head coach Jimbo Fisher.

"Jimbo's a heck of a football coach. [My son] Terry had him up in Salem College, then he took him to Samford. Then he hired him at Auburn. Jimbo is one of the best coaches in the country. He's good. He's a lot like Saban."

Do you feel the comparison to Alabama head coach Nick Saban is an accurate portrayal of Fisher?
