Believe it or not, there was a time when Florida State was considered among college football's wannabes rather than its most dominant program. Believe it or not, there was a time when the Seminoles were content to be the second-best team in the state rather than disappointed if they weren't the best in the country. Believe it or not, it wasn't during the Stone Ages. Yet: "It's so long ago," Bobby Bowden said recently, "that I can't even remember." Bowden, now 71, is only kidding. He can recall the most minute details from his quarter-century as coach at Florida State, which will play in its third straight national championship game Wednesday when the third-ranked Seminoles meet top-ranked Oklahoma in the FedEx Orange Bowl game at Pro Player Stadium in Miami.

Bobby Bowden, the man who built Florida State's once-moribund football program into one of the nation's best, announced Tuesday that the Seminoles' bowl game will be the last game he coaches. Bowden's confirmation puts an end to a whirlwind of speculation that had surrounded his future since reports leaked Monday night that he would be retiring. Bowden, who arrived at Florida State in 1976 and led the Seminoles to national championships in 1993 and 1999, did not make himself available to reporters Tuesday.

Florida State football fans aren't wearing their team's 4-3 record well. They're frustrated and uncomfortable. It's as if their Chief Osceola ties are knotted too tightly around their necks. More than being restless, the fans, alumni and boosters of Florida State, which plays at Maryland tomorrow, are splintered. They can't seem to decide what to do about their living legend of a coach, Bobby Bowden. Florida State@Maryland Tomorrow, 7 p.m., ESPN2, 1300 AM, 105.7 FM Line: Florida State by 4

Don't put knock on Florida StateIn his column of Nov. 23, Bill Tanton diminishes Florida State's entry into the ACC because the school dropped four football players for not going to class, and because of the "disgraceful" brawl between Florida State and Louisiana State earlier this season.Mr. Tanton also quotes a "longtime" Eastern athletic director who said of ACC commissioner Gene Corrigan: "I hope he's still going to confession, taking that bunch in the ACC."Both Mr. Tanton and the unnamed Eastern AD are showing a total disregard of the record.

Terry Bowden spoke with his father, Bobby, twice last week: once after faxing him the game plan two days before Auburn was to play then-top-ranked Florida in Gainesville and again on Saturday.During halftime of his team's 36-33 upset win, the younger Bowden telephoned the family's home in Tallahassee. Bobby Bowden, whose Florida State team was off last week, had watched the Tigers take a 22-14 lead."I called him from the locker room," the younger Bowden recalled yesterday, "and he told me to keep doing what we were doing."

COLLEGE PARK - When D'Qwell Jackson was a high school sophomore and a budding football star in Largo, Fla., he, like a lot of his friends, dreamed of getting a visit from legendary Florida State coach Bobby Bowden. Largo, you see, is mostly Seminoles country. There are Florida Gators fans there, too, but with all the tradition, all the success Florida State has had over the years, its hard for a high school kid not to be in awe of a team that wears garnet and gold. Even the name of Jackson's high school - Seminole - reflected the program's influence.

Irish, with the right coach Chris Dufresne, Los Angeles Times This one is, to mix my metaphors, a slam dunk. Notre Dame will return to glory as soon as it hires the right coach. People wondered if Southern California could ever win big again after going through the Ted Tollner, Larry Smith, John Robinson II and Paul Hackett years. USC had lost its mojo. Really? The Trojans shot back to the top after hiring Pete Carroll. Programs with tradition have the advantage in having that tradition.

Wetherell and athletic director Randy Spetman.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State fans will be playing the oddest sort of guessing game today when the Seminoles host Maryland. Might they be seeing coach Bobby Bowden, 80, on the Doak Campbell Stadium sideline for the final time? Bowden, whose 387 career wins rank him behind only Penn State's Joe Paterno among Football Bowl Subdivision coaches, has declined to discuss his future. Like Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen, Bowden has started to face questions from fans, including some who think it's time for him to step aside.
