Bowden goes out with a win

Congrats Bobby!

==============================================




Bobby Bowden watched the clock run down to :00, then took his last walk to midfield as his Florida State players jumped up and down, thrusting their helmets into the air.

The coach went out a winner, carried off by the Seminoles.

Jermaine Thomas ran for two touchdowns, Florida State scored 20 straight points to take control and the Seminoles knocked off No. 18 West Virginia 33-21 at the Gator Bowl in the final game of Bowden's storied 44-year career as a head coach.

Bowden finished with a 389-129-4 record, and most importantly to him, a 33rd consecutive winning season. Next week, Jimbo Fisher takes over at Florida State, which finished 7-6 for the third time in the last four years.

"It's got to be memorable," Bowden said. "It's my last dadgum ballgame after 57 years of coaching."

They'll miss him emotionally, but I guarantee you, most fans are looking forward to the Jimbo era.
