Goodman Praises Bowden

Posted by Christopher Smith on June 22, 2010 – 1:37 PM

A few seasons ago, Bobby Bowden and Joe Paterno were locked in a duel to become the winningest coach in Division I-FBS history.

A miserable last season, which induced a reluctant retirement out of Bowden after some soured on the direction of the Seminoles, made that seem like a distant memory.

An NCAA ruling recently vacated 12 wins from the 2006-07 seasons, but Bowden retired with an official record of 377-129-4, second behind Paterno all-time.

Here’s what Chargers WR Richard Goodman said about playing for Bowden from 2005-09:

It was a wonderful experience. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It’s a shame how he had to go out, but at the same time, that’s just the way things work. Everything will work out for the best. Coach Fisher, he’s going to do great things there, and Coach Bowden’s legacy will always be remembered.”

Stay true and keep pounding,
Christopher

    A.J. come on brother! let’s work something out with V. Jackson and M. McNeill. These guys have proven themselves already. If you say that you do what is best for the team, then this is the time when you have to suck it up and say it’s time to work it out. I agree with your decisions most of the time but, not this time. It takes more of a man to admit when you have made a bad decision.
