If you need proof that the Florida State football program has declined in importance in recent years, consider the fact that it has been nearly four whole months since a FSU football player has been arrested, shot, put on probation, or indicted. That’s a statistic that wasn’t boding well for their chances for success in 2009, as the team’s greatest successes seem to correlate with their worst off-field behavior (Free Shoes University, anyone?).
Luckily for Bobby Bowden, that changed yesterday when senior WR Richard Goodman was arrested and charged with assaulting a female in the face with a folding chair at a party last November. What a Dick!
