Do you remember back in the day when Florida State was the ACC? When it wasn’t an issue of if they were going to win but by how many? When they made everyone else in the conference irrelevant?
Sure we would, but we don’t like to remember that far back.
For over a decade, Florida State owned the ACC like how the Braves owned the National League East for so many years, with a Man of Steel-like quality, unbeatable. But for Bobby Bowden and his Noles, kryptonite came in the form of time.
It was only a matter of time before the rest of the ACC would get the athletes to compete with FSU. It was only a matter of time before the ACC expanded to include three more teams. And it was only a matter of time before FSU became just another team.
With their 24-19 lost to Boston College, the Seminoles fell to 4-3 overall and 2-3 in the ACC, placing them last in the Atlantic Division.
Maybe it’s time for Bowden to end his legacy.

- Thank you Jesus…As in Touchdown. With Notre Dame staring a lost in its face, quarterback Brady Quinn connects with receiver Jeff Samardzija for a 45-yard TD with 27 seconds left to squeak pass UCLA 20-17
- Feeling Green…Washington State’s 34-23 win over Oregon proves two things: 1) The Ducks may not be for real and 2) The Pac-10 have a bunch of equal teams that are still worse than SC
And finally:Chuck GotaGo…Two weeks ago, NC State defeated Florida State to take over the top spot in the Atlantic Division and to seemingly save coach Chuck Amato’s job. However, back to back losses, including a 26-20 lost to Maryland on Saturday drops the Pack to 2-2 and fifth in the division.
I just saw the U-Haul van pull up to Chuck’s door.
