    Bowden helped lead hundreds/maybe thousands of young men on a path to create generational wealth for themselves and their families by playing sports.

    You know, helping address the equality issues in today’s world.

    Ron DeSantis also signed the NIL bill. We can both be happy for that. Florida is the first state to actually allow college athletes to make money.

    I would push back a little on the Abrams example, the point is this is partisan bullshit and has nothing to do with the state

    Abrams getting it from a democratic state government would be the same thing

    state awards shouldn’t push partisan bullshit, this is being done under the guise of his FSU accomplishments but we all know it’s because he said nice things about the orange one

    Guy got rich by being a salesman and building an athletics department at a girls school

    Famous and celebrated as hof coach was most definitely the unpaid labor part though

    wish he woulda just hit the Keys after 99 and spent this century hermitted

    See, it wouldn’t though. Registering more people to vote and increasing minority engagement in the democratic process of America shouldn't be viewed as partisanship - ever. That’s just helping America be more like the America we’re told it is in school. Once you buy into the notion that more Americans voting is partisan, you’re lost. You’ve let the enemies of democracy win.

    I agree, but it is viewed that way

    Push back against people that do. Never concede that point. It’s actually very important that we never allow that framing to take hold.

    By a vocal minority of people. Hopefully fewer and fewer fall into that racist trap going forward.

    Bless your heart you poor misguided soul. He accomplished a lot at a time when coaches weren't paid ridiculous salaries like they are today. Hell he even retired before salaries skyrocketed.

    But best of all, he gave America and the world the gift of Danny Kanell. Bringing us hard hitting polls like this one:



    Really I think it's more what he did for FSU and it's football program than whatever crony Republican crap has happened in recent years.
