Jeff Bowden, who was forced to resign, called a great game last night and was able to do it his way – without too much intervention from Bobby. Bobby did keep calling for the same play over and over though – the lob pass to Gregg Carr. Eventually it worked, but I think we went to it five or six times unsuccessfully. Eh.
The good news: Two offensive coaches are out for next year – OC Jeff Bowden and RB coach Billy Sexton. That’s a start. Now we just have to find someone to replace them.
How far has this team fallen? We went to a bowl game where we had to share the sideline with the UCLA players.
Odd trivia: The Emerald Bowl (San Franscisco) is the farthest FSU has ever played from Tallahassee.
All in all, this was the best possible bowl outcome: a win, plus a glimmer of hope for next year.
