Past stars can't help now Fort Lauderdale News and Sun-Sentinel, Sunday, Nov. 29, 1981 7C aee-rebuiMingjoh Seminoles f By Tim Rosaforte Staff Writer y GAINESVILLE - There was no Jimmy Jordan or Wally Woodham to pull it out, no Ron Simmons to flex his muscles and stop the run or rush the passer, no Bobby Butler to cover receivers, no Reggie Herring to say something when the scoreboard at Florida Field registered point after point for the Florida Gators. No ghosts of Seminoles past. The only remnant of those glory years for Florida State Saturday was Bobby Bowden, and as he stood there in the drizzle on the soggy carpet of ersatz grass, all he could do was watch helplessly as the balance of state football power reversed itself in Florida's direction. ' We've got a lot of work to do at Florida State," said the coach at the bottom end of a 35-3 score. " I've got a lot of work to do. I don't imagine I'll be hitting too many golf balls this off-season." There will be no off-season for Bobby Bowden, no afternoon tee times with alumni at Killearn Golf Club. It's back to work on Monday, I first to pick up the shattered re- mains of a team that had just trudged through a Bataan Death March, then to put it all back together for another assault on college football. The roles are reversed this year. It's wait until next year for Florida State. It's on to the Peach Bowl for Florida. "We looked bad today," said Bowden, not mincing his evaluation. "It looks like we died." Bowden reeled off the damages. "They whipped us in everything today except punting," he said. "They whipped us up front. Again,' we got whipped by a good quarterback (Wayne Peace). We couldn?t budge their defense. We're not a good catch-up football team. Last year, we could come back. This year, we couldn't. We just can't rush the passer: That guy (Peace) had all day long. It's amazing, we can't throw and catch." Bowden paused to catch his NCAA sets playoffs for I-AA teams I'nited Press International MISSION, Kan. Here are the NCAA Division I-AA football pairings and sites, released Saturday, with team records in parentheses. All first-round games are to be played Dec. 5. In the first bracket, No. 1 seed Eastern Kentucky (10-1) hosts No. 7 Delaware (9-2), and No. 5 Jackson State (Miss.) (9-1-1) hosts No. 4 Boise State (9-2). In the second bracket.

Bobby Bowden breath before the summary. "We've got a lot of work to do," he said. For a moment, Bowden tried to be optimistic. In retrospect, maybe 6-5 isn't that bad considering the schedule Clay Stapleton dreamed up in a sadistic moment a decade ago. Maybe it's the best that could have been expected considering the talent assembled and crimes com, mitted by players in the off-season. Maybe, as quarterback Rick Stockstill offered, they should be proud of the total picture and not ashamed at the last stroke of the brush. "I'll be able Jo look people in the eye," said one of the biggest disappointments on the Seminoles this year. "I think we'll all be able to."

The emotional bubble burst in the third quarter against Miami, when a tie game became a 12-point loss. That was it. Finis. Burnout. The Seminoles were . never in the Southern Miss game. They1 were never in Saturday's game. - . "We were flat," said cornerback James Harris, after playing his last game in garnet and gold. "We were stale." y - "Everybody thought that if we could make it through October, our season would be over," said Garry Futch, another Florida State senior going out the locker room door the hard way. "Well, it didn't quite work out that way." -Futch was the defensive tackle who had last year's Orange Bowl game in his mummified mitts when Oklahoma quarterback J.C. Watts ' threw a bullet right into his hands As it turns out, Oktoberfest. with Ohio State, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and LSU on, the road, was a party compared to November against Miami, Southern Mississippi and a Florida team that had four years of frustration to repay. The Seminoles were 6-2 after a 56-31 win over Western Carolina, but even then, their hearts weren't into it. "This year could have been a disaster," Bowden pointed out. Passing Peace Alt.Cmp.

Futch tried to run with the ball, lost it, had it sit atop his helmet and then roll down his back to the ground. If he caught it, Florida State would have won the Orange Bowl and concluded its season one point (a 10-9 loss to Miami) away from the national championship. Those feats seems so distant 11 months later. So impossible, as that ball Garry Futch will always dream about, to grasp.

"When I came here four years ago, people told me I was crazy. They all told me I was making the wrong decision. I'm still glad I went here. In fact, I'm just as proud of this team as I am the two Orange Bowl teams." A year ago, the only thing that was the same was the halftime score 13-3 in favor of Florida. Both coaches tried to use that as their selling point in halftime speeches, but this time, Bobby Bowden didn't have the same ears listening. When told of Charley Pell's halftime serenade, Bowden chuckled. "We used the same sermon they did," Bowden said, "But I was talking to different people. Reggie Herring wasn't listening." Nor was Simmons, Butler and the rest of that senior class that walked off the Doak Campbell Stadium field last year with four fingers held skyward. That era is over.
