Bobby Bowden death: FSU coach was a college football giant

Can a long, rich career and a longer, richer life be distilled down to a single word, especially if that word is barely a word at all? Dadgum. Bobby Bowden could say it a hundred ways. He could be talking about a field goal that drifted outside the upright or an otherwise lovable young player (with a delightful momma and a beautiful baby sister) who drifted outside the law, only to repent. He could be describing a win in Gainesville, a loss in Miami (there were so many and they hurt so much) or the weather in South Bend. He could be carefully filling a blank space while formulating the answer to a question at one of his press conferences. He could be happy or he could be sad. Or maybe all along, he could be playing the role of his life.
