The Daily Nole — Sept. 22, 2016: Bowden Dynasty Documentary Coming in January

FSU athletics

We’re only two days away from Florida State taking the field against South Florida, but after three days off for the athletic programs in general, the Seminoles will have one team in action on Thursday night. Here’s a look at the big news surrounding FSU athletics. The news and notes section will be updated as the day goes on.

Lead Story

Filmmakers John Corry, Rob Harvell and Brian Goodwin have come together to make a film on the Florida State football dynasty under legendary head coach Bobby Bowden. The film is called “The Bowden Dynasty: A Story of Faith, Family & Football”.

According to reports, Harvell and Goodwin have worked on the wildly popular ESPN ’30 for 30′ documentaries. Bowden came to Tallahassee in 1976 to take over a program that had won just four total games in the previous three years and turned it into one of college football’s preeminent powers.

From 1987-2000 under Bowden, the Seminoles finished in the AP top 5 every year, winning a pair of national championships during that span. The film will debut on Jan. 8, 2017 with a red carpet event at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, according to 247Sports.

Between the Lines

There were no FSU athletic events on Thursday.

On the Agenda

Florida State’s soccer team will host Wake Forest tonight at 7 p.m.

News and Notes

According to Tomahawk Nation, junior wide receiver Ermon Lane worked as a safety during Wednesday’s practice. Lane has yet to make a catch this season as a receiver and with injuries to Derwin James and Nate Andrews (previously) in the secondary, putting Lane back there might not be a terrible idea.

The ACC has brought in SportSource Analytics to settle any potential 3-way tiebreaker for division champions. Having the company decide the tiebreaker could keep the conference from having to wait until the Monday night before the ACC Championship when the College Football Playoff rankings are released.

According to head coach Jimbo Fisher, sophomore defensive end Josh Sweat will miss Saturday’s game against South Florida after having knee surgery to repair a minor injury to his meniscus. Sweat has three tackles in three games for FSU this season.
