Bobby Bowden Thinks FSU Should Stay In The ACC

With conference realignment a seemingly never-ending discussion in college athletics, Florida State has found itself in a debate over whether it should stay in the ACC. If former head coach Bobby Bowden has anything to say about it, the Seminoles won't be going anywhere.

Bowden believes that Florida State is poised for a return to the top of a conference it has a rich history in.

"I think their best chance is to stay where they are. You get into the SEC, you're going to have a great team and end up third. Arkansas was outstanding last year and they were third in the conference, third in the nation even. And second and third don't count. I really think Florida State's best chance of getting back to the top, nationally, is through the ACC channel."

A move by the Seminoles to the SEC is purely speculation at this point.
