Bobby Bowden answers the tough questions

In one of the latest installments of the Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) series, coaching legend Bobby Bowden was grilled by the redditors.

Bowden shared his favorite stadium, his favorite flavor of ice cream, what it was like coaching against Steve Spurrier, where he learned the word “dadgum” from, what game he would re-do, how recruiting has changed and much much more…

What does Bowden think of the importance of having a good kicker?

Boy, have you ever thought about (I have!) how many national championships we might have won if we had Janikowski every year of my career? We lost so many games because of that. 1987 was a year we played Miami. If I’d have kicked a field goal we’d have won a championship, but I decided to go for 2. I think we might have missed an extra point in that game too.
