In football, there are good coaches and great coaches; Fortunately for Florida State, it has the latter in Bobby Bowden. Bowden helped FSU attain a superlative record during his tenure, with the only downside to the school being that it has made it harder for fans to find FSU football parking spaces at home games in Tallahassee.
The Seminoles’ home base is Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium, built in 1950 and recently renamed after the school’s most famous coach. When a home game is played at Doak, a man dressed as Chief Osceola of the real-life Seminoles magnificently charges the field on an appaloosa horse. Once he gets to the middle of the field, he throws a flaming spear, after which point the game can begin. While Chief Osceola doesn't need to park his horse, all the other fans do. FSU Seminoles football has gotten more popular over the years, making it more difficult to find Florida State Football parking spaces. If you plan ahead and book your Doak Campbell Stadium parking spot ahead of time with ParkWhiz, you can save yourself both time and frustration.
One of the easiest ways to see how excellent a coach Bobby Bowden is to examine his contribution to FSU’s conference titles; since FSU’s football program began in 1947, twelve of the sixteen championships were obtained under the supervision of Coach Bowden. In addition to conference titles, during Bowden’s 34-year career from 1976-2009, the school’s record was 304 wins to 97 losses and four ties, a percentage of .756. The Seminoles also prevailed in 1993 and 1999 to be the National Champions, selected in both cases by the AP and Coaches polls. During Bowden’s stay at FSU two players were chosen to be Heisman trophy winners - Charlie Ward in 1993 and Chris Weinke in 2000. Winning isn't everything, but planning for challenges certainly does help. Planning ahead for sporting events is always smart, especially when it comes to NCAA games, so book your Florida State Football parking spot in advance with ParkWhiz.
