On FSU Day at the state capitol on Thursday, a resolution in the House recognized FSU head football coach Bobby Bowden for his induction into the College Football Hall of Fame. Bowden himself addressed the House from the well of the chamber.
"Next year will be my 32nd year at Florida State …I feel like I've been very fortunate to coach this long. … If I can just keep ol' T.K. straight over there," Bowden said of Wetherell, former speaker of the House, who was also in the chamber.
Bobby Bowden's has observed the offensive line practice in his practice-field tower and he likes what he has seen from the offensive line after three practices. “I know this: They like to come off the ball better . . . and getting after people better," Bowden said.
FSU QB D'Vontrey Richardson has missed most of spring practice because he is playing for Mike Martin's baseball team. He however has the support of both Jimbo Fisher and Bobby Bowden. According to Richardson, Fisher has told him "that it is fine. He talked about how baseball hitting mechanics and football throwing mechanics are the same thing."
