Two quarterbacks sharing almost equal playing time is an arrangement that never works, right? Thank heavens there was an exception to that rule at Florida State in the late 1970s. Wally Woodham and Jimmy Jordan, both former Leon High stars, were the signal callers who made it click. They arrived at FSU just as Bobby Bowden was transforming defeatist attitudes into winning ways. And no doubt it wouldn't have happened without them.
Over three decades later, what does Woodham think about sharing time with a guy he'd known for years? He has a surprising answer in this interview done by sportswriter Bob Ferrante for Garnet & Great. Woodham opens up about many things from the early Bowden era, including the fact that he came very close to never suiting up in Garnet & Gold.
