Reinstate Bobby Bowden's Vacated Wins

This petition had 1,034 supporters

This petition is being created for the sole purpose of reinstating the vacated wins that the NCAA took off of Bobby Bowden's win loss record.  Bowden, the long-time Florida State head coach, had 12 victories taken away from the 2006 and 2007 seasons by the NCAA due to an academic scandal that the FSU coaches were not implicated in.

If Bowden’s 12 wins were restored, his total would reach 388 – still 21 behind Paterno’s 409 and would reestablish FSU's bowl streak at 34 straight, one short of the record. For Bowden, it’s not about the record; it’s about the inconsistency the NCAA has shown with issues like this.

“The NCAA has been very inconsistent about how they take away victories,” Bowden said. “It’s not like we were trying to cover anything up. We did everything in our dad-gum power to get to the bottom of that situation.”
