    Bobby's sounding old

    Is it just me or do the quotes from Bobby Bowden make it sound like he is starting to lose it? Using numbers instead of names to refer to players.

    He's more of a figurehead now imo. His coordinators run the show. He's like the CEO of the company.

    If my CEO sounded like that I'd sell all my stock and update my resume.

    The guys a great coach. He's earned the right to chose the time and place of his retirement.

    I agree, Bobby and Joe Pa. They deserve life time passes.

    as long as he's winning. i'm sure if he had two or three losing seasons in a row his lifetime pass might run out.

    Of course I am an outsider, but I think he has earned that right. I also think that both will retire at the first sign of an extended losing streak (more than one season).

    Is that how it should be? yes. Is that whats going to happen? Probably not. I think he'll coach till he dies or is forced out. I just can't imagine him retiring. When he starts to slip i think FSU boosters will tell him to retire. Kind of like DeBerry.

    I'm pretty certain Bobby's always referred to players' number rather than names, except for the big-time stars. Especially this time of year and Fall camp.

    That's what I was thinking too. Bowden, along with Spurrier, are two coaches that have always cracked me up. They are usually pretty honest when assessing their teams.
