As Bobby Bowden's storied career comes to a close, WFSU-TV has unearthed a piece of Florida State University football history.
It only took two years, but by the end of the 1977 football season, Bobby Bowden had won over the Seminole faithful with victories over Auburn, Virginia Tech, and, most importantly, a spanking of in-state rivals Florida. WFSU-TV's J. Leigh Rubinas talked with the coach about the difficulties of coaching and being a family man, the kinds of players he was looking to build a program with, and what it takes to keep fans happy with the man coaching their team. Little could Seminole fans have dreamed at this early stage about what Bowden would accomplish at FSU. But here the man is before the National Championships, the Heisman Trophies, the streaks, or even a single gray hair upon his head. Enjoy.
