What a surprise that FSU would try to work around penalties for misconduct so that they are not really penalties at all. This is the same program that suspends players only for easy games, allowing them to play and practice around those suspensions. Now, it has scheduled easy games to work around suspensions.

Sadly for FSU, this approach to discipline probably plays a large part in the recent struggles of what once was a proud program. Shameful.

Funny you should say that, since the team just PUT ITSELF on probation. They are disciplining themselves due to the actions of one Special Ed teacher, similar to UM getting in trouble due to one Pell Grant cokehead. http://seminoles.cstv.com/academics/brendamon...
She apparently went to an SEC school, and so her loyalties are suspect. Perhas she did this on purpose to malign the ACC?(I know, that is a stretch, just thought I would throw that out there before the Conspiracy Theory folks did.:))
