In a column that will likely bring great joy to Joe Paterno and Penn State fans, Steve Ellis of the Tallahassee Democrat has called on Florida State officials to step in and tell Bobby Bowden that this season will be his last.
"Let players — current and future — know that the Jimbo Fisher Era has a starting point — and that starting point begins once this season is over," Ellis writes.
Florida State was the preseason pick to win the Atlantic Division of the ACC, but Saturday's 28-21 loss at Boston College left the Seminoles 0-2 in league play for the first time since joining the conference in 1992.
Bowden, who is chasing Paterno for most career wins, turns 80 on Nov. 8.
"What would I gain by stepping down right now," Bowden said. "What would you do? Fire everybody and bring in a whole new coaching staff. You can't do that, you know?
"I'll evaluate myself. I'll wait to the end of the year."
Ellis writes: "It's too late for that."
