Just another game the noles may have to forfeit due to the upcoming sanctions from the N.C.A.A.

Very frustrating to watch, but a great comeback at the end. Toney Douglas is a one-man team. UNC woulda been nice, too.

If your program wasn't so full of corruption and cheating there would be a lot of nice things to say. But how can anyone affiliated with fsu be proud of an institution that cares more about winning than playing fair? Your institution is fixing to be placed on probation for the 7th time which will be one shy of a record and hopefully will be brought down to a level playing field so that schools like Western Carolina and Tennessee Chatt. can compete and defeat your beloved noles. I'm glad my school's athletic department's fate does not lie with the N.C.A.A. infractions committee.

Take off those blinders because I know you know how many felonies your athletes have done. College kids are idiot's, especially boy's. They will make mistakes and all we can do is hope they learn from those mistakes. If you are going to be so judgemental you need to be the same way with your players who have done bad and stupid things too.

Felonies yes. N.C.A.A. rules violations no. FSU is fixing to become the poster child for what's wrong with college athletics. Aren't you concerned that if your child graduates from fsu that their diploma would be looked down upon by prospective employers since they would know that your institution is full of corruption when it comes to academics? I know as being an employer myself that I would have a tendency to throw away any applications from an fsu graduate based on this cheating scandal being representative of the entire school.

What's worse cheating on an on-line music class or felonies? Both schools are big and a handful of idiots do not define a school, especially when they are athletes. It would be great if all athletes were like Tebow, Posey, Rolle ect... but, they are not. Until then we must remember they are still just dumb kids who will make big and small mistakes, no matter what school they attend.
