Default Florida State football team to forfeit wins

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=3958292

The Florida State football team will vacate an undetermined number of wins, serve four years' probation, and face a reduction in scholarships and other penalties due to what the NCAA described Friday as "major violations" from an academic cheating scandal.

NOT SHOCKED AT ALL.


FSU's program had been slipping in recent years so im sure in order to try and make them more competitive the school allowed some players to be eligible when they shouldnt have been and so on.

What a ****ing joke...they only lost 6 scholarships. More proof that the NCAA is swallowing Bowden. This is a miscarriage of justice. We lost 31 scholarships for ****ing Pell Grants. FSU should have gotten the death penalty.

We lost to them twice in the last two years ... any word on whether we get a belated 'W'?

Dan Hawkins will take wins any way he can get 'em....

Apparently FSU has a time table on reporting to the NCAA exactly how many Wins should be forfeited. "They" say there were as many as 25 ineligible football players over those 2 years...06 and 07. Some say Bowden shouldn't be punished if he didn't know. I say if any of these dudes helped em win any games, known or not, he shouldn't get the credit.
