Bobby Bowden Felt FSU Winning In SEC Would Be ‘too difficult’
Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports
Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden was on Paul Finebaum’s show on Tuesday, where he spoke his mind freely. The legendary coach talked about how he thought Jameis Winston was an embarrassment to the Seminoles and he also admitted that he intentionally avoided the intense competition of the SEC...
quote:

“I felt that it was too difficult to win through the SEC to win a national championship,” Bowden said. “I felt like our best route would be to go through the ACC and that did prove out to be correct. But, I don’t know if we could have made it through the SEC.”

“I merely agreed to whatever those responsible decided,” Bowden wrote. “I had always been an SEC fan. I did feel, however, that between the SEC and the ACC, the best road to a national title was through the ACC. A national championship was my number one goal every year. The SEC is so tough, top to bottom, that they beat up on each other week after week.”

I remember the joke from back then: Why did the chicken cross the road? To join the ACC.


No offense, Chicken.

It wouldn't matter how far back he went, the SEC has ALWAYS been better than the ACC.

I'd like to know how far back he'd go with that SEC statement.

Bob Stoops is probably already getting ready to reply with an anti-SEC remark.
