Bobby Bowden: 'Too difficult to win championship going through the SEC'
Bobby Bowden’s Tuesday appearance on The Paul Finebaum Show made waves throughout the college football community.
Not only was he brutally honest about his opinion of Jameis Winston and his tenure at Florida State, but the legendary former coach also went into detail about the Seminoles’ decision to stay in the ACC when a move to the SEC was a possibility.
The league’s top to bottom strength was far too challenging.

Concerning Winston, Bowden called the Heisman-winning quarterback and No. 1 pick “an embarrassment to the university in a lot of ways” and said he hopes he corrects his struggles with immaturity in the NFL.
