I think it's ashame that they forced the man the made Florida State into a national power and was a key figure in Marshall having a football team again after that terrible plane crash that killed all of its players. It was 1st year coach of West Virginia (at the time) that helped Marshall have a football team once again. If you've ever seen the movie, 'We Are Marshall', you would understand that this great man, Bobby Bowden was the key ingredient in Marshall's resurgence; and, Marshall has won several national championships since he helped them. Bobby should not be forced out by Florida Sate. He is an icon; and, I've never liked the Florida State football program in the first place. Now, they give me more reason not to like them. Congratulations, Bobby for a stellar career; and Florida State should be ashamed of what they have done to you.

Bobby once said that he could come to Louisiana and take the pick of the litter of the best high school football talent and they would go to Florida State. That pissed me off! But, you can't take anything away from a man that could do that. Louisiana has better high school talent per capita than any area in the nation. Bobby Bowden was and is a great coach that Florida State has wronged!

I think is is a shame that he was allowed to continue coaching 10 years ago. He will forever be known as "Coach Look the other way". He built a program from nothing, that is true. But he did it the wrong way, not the right way. He graduated 20% of his players. More arrest of players than any other coach in the history of football. He would beat up on weak teams always and lose to that one tough team that he played every year. Once the ACC got competitive, he started losing. When there were no good teams in the ACC he was top5 every year.

Don't forget about 'WE ARE MARSHALL'! If it wasn't for him, they might not have had a football team after that horrible plane crash that killed their original team. He has compassion!:)

I don't like Bobby as a coach because he was able to come to Louisiana to get our best players. That made me mad! But, I can't take that away from him. That just means he recruited really well. But, as a compassionate person, I give him the world of credit for helping save Marshall!:)

We are Marshall!!!!

Never gonna like the Coach. He was a dirty one. He might have been a good man outside of coaching but he isn't stepping down from being a man. He is stepping down (fired is what everyone else calls it)from the only reason we know his name.
