Bobby Bowden announces being diagnosed with a terminal illness


Recommended Posts

I met him in Tampa in 04 at the Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club. Went to his dinner and speech. he was hilarious. Just an all around great human being. As a lifelong Noles fan I didn’t know any other football without Bowden. He was the best. All his players loved him. He was strong man of faith and never was afraid to express it.

This is bad. I started watching the Seminoles in 1979 and listening to them on the radio with my dad. I’ve always been a huge Bowden fan. Such a good dude. And a great coach. This is going to be terrible when he passes.

I remember those great seasons in 79 and 80 where they went to the orange bowl against Oklahoma and we’re within a snails hear of a national title. Then 1981 they had their famous Oktoberfest, with road games consecutively against Notre Dame, LSU, Ohio state, and Pitt. And they won three of those four, only losing to top-ranked Pitt in that stretch.
