TALLAHASSEE — Willie Taggart hasn't yet coached a game for the No. 19 Seminoles, but he is already impressing Florida State legend Bobby Bowden.

"So far, so good," Bowden said before Monday night's primetime matchup against No. 20 Virginia Tech at Doak Campbell Stadium. "In my opinion, he's done everything you need to get a program going. Now we'll see.

"That doesn't mean you're going to win right off, but I'm convinced, the more I see him, he is going to win. Maybe not quick, but maybe quick. But he's going to win before it's over."

Has Bowden given any advice to the first-year FSU coach?

"I don't give advice to guys like him," Bowden said. "They give me advice."
