    My View: A Wake Up Call

    Sometime in the future, we may be able to look back at November 11, 2006 as the date of the wake up call for the FSU football program. As all Nole fans will unfortunately recall, that was the date of the home game when Wake Forest beat FSU thirty to nothing. A shocked crowd left early for the exits and Bobby Bowden was left to ponder what had happened.

    Since that time, FSU finished the season 6-6 and headed to a lower tier bowl. It also marked the time that Bobby Bowden and others in the administration woke up to the fact that the program was in need of an extreme makeover. Whether Bobby Bowden was forced to make the changes kicking and screaming, the fact is that significant coaching changes have been completed.

    The changes were long over due. It is now time to hopefully get the program back to the place that it once occupied. I have been a tough critic of Bobby Bowden and the administration but I have to give credit when due. These changes are nothing but positive. It is time to move on.
