We were all younger 25 years ago, weren't we? Can't believe that picture in New Orleans with P-Dub was 10 years ago. Seems like only yesterday....

Great pics. Thanks for sharing.

One of the greatest coaches of all time! We will miss you Mr Bowden! You will always be in our hearts! Great Pics!

I had "Glory Days" playing in my head while looking at that.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

BTW, whose the guy that looks like Kenny "The Snake" Stabler in the B/W photo from 1986?

I have wanted him gone for a few years now, but now that the time has come, I don't hold any grudge. I think that's how most fans will be once it actually happens. Bad feelings will heal over time.

Great pics and nice memories. Thanks so much bobby for all you have done for us.



Posted on 11/30 11:46 PM | IP: Logged

Great thread, thanks for posting these. That picture with Bobby, the crystal football and PW will be how I choose to remember him and his time at FSU.

its so sad to see this day come but its all for the best.

bless you Bobby, you've meant the world to us fans and will always be the class act of this sport.

I think I like the one on the couch the best.

He's wearing that hideous outfit, but just doesn't give a chit. He knows he's got everyone's respect, and has the Heisman there where most people would have a dish of candy or something. It's just the Heisman, no big deal.

And it epitomizes him as a coach and person, no stress, no worry, no yelling, no anger, just laid back and in control.

Wait. Is that The Rock? If so, when was this? Is there video of this somewhere? I bet those two would work great off of each other. They are both great with quick one liners.

awesome thread.



Posted on 12/1 8:37 AM | IP: Logged

Thank you Coach, for everything you've done for FSU. You will be missed and this is truly a sad day.



Posted on 12/1 8:45 AM | IP: Logged

That's the most arrogant thing posted on these boards - ever!!!! Grudge, indeed.

Posted on 12/1 9:13 AM | IP: Logged

Love the short shorts

Posted on 12/1 9:34 AM | IP: Logged

Great post. Since I arrived on campus in 87 he made me proud to be a Seminole. He made me laugh and he provided a great product that has entertained me and my family for years. Sad to see him go. I'm not going to bash the man now.



Posted on 12/1 9:57 AM | IP: Logged

Great pics....

just one question though. Why are the pics from the 80s in black and whitelaugh

Posted on 12/1 12:01 PM | IP: Logged

No matter how you feel about our situation this is a sad day for all Seminoles.

Posted on 12/1 12:56 PM | IP: Logged

I'll miss him but it's clear his days are done. Thanks for everything you've done for this program. I don't think the situation he's leaving the program in is that bad or can't be fixed pretty quickly.

Thanks for the photos. I had tears in my eyes going through them. What a great ride we had with him as our coach, until recently. I will miss him.

Nice memories!! Check out Mark Richt (face partially covered) in that 1985 photo when he was a G.A.

All of the photos except that last couple are from the Florida Photographic Collection. I suspect many are black and white because they are from the newspapers, which only use to print in black and white.

Wet eyes.

Posted on 12/1 3:34 PM | IP: Logged

I will be there at his final bowl game. Whatever Bobby does, I hope that he will be happy and never have any regrets. This fan loves you for all that you've done for FSU.



Posted on 12/1 3:38 PM | IP: Logged

God bless you bobby. fsu will always remember you as bama does the bear and penn state does joe pa. that's some pretty good company by gosh. is that kenny stabler in one of the pics with white hair and the florida state staff shirt on? if not, sure looks like him.



Posted on 12/1 4:01 PM | IP: Logged

Great pics. We won't ever see these times again. There will be good times for sure but not as great as these. The "business of football' has come to Florida State.



Posted on 12/1 4:02 PM | IP: Logged

Keep adding pics to this thread and ALWAYS KEEP THIS THREAD PINNED!!! I saved all these pics on my phone, thank you OP and thank you Coach! Much love!
