Notre Dame at FSU: Five Things to Know About This Game

This isn’t 1993. This isn’t about Charlie Ward or a stinging defense or Matt Frier crying after the game – begging pollsters to give the Seminoles one more chance at a national title. This isn’t about South Bend or Lou Holtz or changing history or losing the following week to Boston College.This is 2014. This is about FSU trying to remain undefeated. This is about Everette...

Bobby Bowden: Jameis Winston Needs to Grow Up (Video)

Jameis Winston is no Charlie Ward Dadgummit. Florida State coaching legend Bobby Bowden stopped by ESPN to talk about Jameis Winston and the Noles.  Bowden’s message was similar to everyone else.

Notre Dame vs. Florida St: then ’93 and now ’14

I don’t see any sense in doing a “play by play” on the historic November 13, 1993 ballgame between Notre Dame and Florida State. I mean, let’s be realistic, isn’t that why God put Google and Wikipedia at our disposal? So, let’s have our own “two man” game. Here’s the drill. Each time I toss out a reflection, I’ll give you a hook on Saturday’s battle between...

For Bobby Bowden, greatest coaching high and low happened at West Virginia

October arrives as the leaves turn a golden hue across West Virginia. The same colorful vibrant sheen of helmets worn by Bobby Bowden's Mountaineers four decades ago.

Better Florida State QB: Charlie Ward or Jameis Winston?

One of the greatest things about writing about the Seminoles is the debate that usually ensues when it comes to FSU and comparisons of the 1993 Championship team and the 2013 Championship team. I throw out the 1999 from this discussion – although the program’s dominance that season (coupled with birth of my son Bennett) was one of those football seasons you remember like it was...

There have been three Heisman Trophy winners in Florida State’s history: Charlie Ward in 1993, Chris Weinke in 2000, and most recently, Jameis Winston last year.
