The article presents information on the professional career of football coach Bobby Bowden. Bowden's team is a shell of what it once was. The talent level isn't what it used to be, and his offense looks stuck in the previous decade. Now finally, begrudgingly, his devoted and unwavering fans are beginning to question his decision making. Bowden is loyal to a fault with assistant coaches. He refuses to change offensive schemes or coaches in response to the ever-evolving landscape of the game. He plays the wrong players.
