Florida State’s 2005 football media guide received high marks in the publications contest results in this month’s CoSIDA Digest. The 2005 guide was voted fifth nationally and first in district three. The cover was a tribute to head coach Bobby Bowden’s 30th season at Florida State. Jeff Purinton edited the media guide with assistance from Rob Wilson, Tina Thomas, Chuck Walsh, Elliott Finebloom, Tamara Metcalfe, Lauren Williams, Michael Smoose and Josh Weber. Kansas State, Oklahoma, Fresno State, Lousiana State, Florida State and Tennessee were ranked 1-6 in the country. In district three, FSU’s football guide was voted first with Florida checking in at No. 2.
