Is a terrible coach. He does less with more. Now i know why his name came up in the Ark coaching search. He will be fired from there within 3 years.
You would think anyone could win big there in that league and contend for a NC real often. If Bowden hadn't been so mediocre in his last several years, the heat would be on Jimbo more IMO. He is going to win a BCS bowl against a vastly inferior team. That will probably keep him safe. I am glad we have Bielema. Fisher can't win them all in a poor league with all the resources at FSU. It would be hard to imagine him being more than mediocre here. He recruits well but he has generally been at places that are easy to recruit. He would have been a horrible fit here IMO.
Wow! Bowden lost less than four times only twice in his last nine seasons and he lost three those years. I didn't realize he was so bad for nearly his last decade. I guess their expectations have lowered some which might be helping Jimbo!
From 1987-2001, Bowden never lost more than two games. I bet that will never happen again at any major program. Incredible run. Hard to believe they struggle so much in the ACC.
yeah fisher is terrible. i mean he only won the conference, got them to and won a bcs bowl, and will probably have a top 10 finish. who would want that? pretty terrible if you ask me. some of you guys kill me.
That right there is called oversimplification folks.
Do you watch college football ? Can you tell a distinct difference in talent levels on the field ?
The BCS bowl that they won and you are so proud of was against a MAC team that they should have beaten like Okie State beat Purdue. Instead, because Jimbo calls 2 pass plays for every run play (when the run plays were averaging 10 yards a pop), that game was a 7 point game with 6 minutes left in the 3rd quarter and NIU had the ball in FSU territory. If Jimbo had a clue, they would have run the ball down their throats and been ahead by 30 points at that point in the game as opposed to almost having the game tied up.
Also, did you watch the NCST game that they lost this year ?? Led 16-0 at halftime and end up losing the game after scoring ZERO points in the 2nd half against a bad NCST team. You know who called the plays for that scoreless second half Mr. smart guy ?
They play in the ACC man. They are located in the state of Florida. winning the conference is pretty much a given unless you are clueless .......like Jimbo.
oversimplify it all you want, but to call the guy "terrible" is a bit of an overstatement. now i'm sure you'll write out a diatribe about why i'm wrong, but IDGAS. you have your opinion. i have mine. /discussion.
If not terrible, what word would you use to define him as a coach ?
