    My View: The Tank Is Empty

    Bobby Bowden was asked in his post game press conference how much is left in"his tank." In his usual manner, he dismissed the question. I think it is apparent to all who are not blind that he has been running on empty for quite a while now.

    This program is devoid of leadership. Period. Watching Bowden after the game, I did not see someone who was angry or visibly upset that FSU had just lost to Florida for three straight years. It was one of acceptance. When that happens, you know the tank is empty.

    It is still unbelievable to me that the leadership at FSU is content with watching this program descend even lower. I am equally amazed that there are so many fans that say Bobby Bowden has earned the right to stay as long as he wants no matter how many losses he has.

    Major changes need to be made in this program. And it needs to happen sooner rather than later. If not, we will continue to run on empty.

    Bobby Bowden has already reaped the rewards that he has earned. I thought he was enough of a man to recognize when it was time to retire. The tank may not be quite empty yet, but it will be if FSU can't recruit quality players.

    That is true. However, do not look for FSU to have great success at recruiting in the near future.
