TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – In honor of Florida State Head Coach Bobby
Bowden’s Silver Anniversary, the 2000 Florida State Football Official Game
Day Magazine will be a special collector’s series commemorating the beloved
Coach’s 25-year FSU career.
Through a joint effort by the Florida State sports information
office and Host Communications, each magazine will include a special
pullout poster celebrating each era of Bowden’s career. Each poster will
include a Bowden coaching shot from that era with numerous standout players
also featured. A brief story on each era will also be included in each
magazine as part of the “From the Press Box” section.
This year’s magazine will be one of the biggest game day programs
in college football, with new glossy color covers and 136 pages of
information including color photography, coaches biographies, player
features, game notes and opponent information.
A limited supply of magazines will be available for fans who are
not able to attend the game. Fans will be able to obtain a copy of each
magazine by mail through a special ordering feature on Florida State’s
Official Athletics Website, www.seminoles.com.
The magazine will be launched this weekend at the North Carolina
game. Stories in the first issue include features on football players
Brian Allen, Tarlos Thomas, Marcus Outzen and Clevan Thomas, the FSU
