NCAA Violations at FSU

September 27th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

Twenty three FSU student athletes are in hot water for academic irregularities that include receiving improper assistance from a staff tutor. After interviewing more than 130 student athletes and numerous staff, the university discovered that one tutor provided typing assistance. Another provided answers or directed the athletes to answers to online quizzes. FSU President T.K. Wetherell calls the situation embarrassing.

ďI donít like what we saw that bothered us obviously that athletic and staff would have done what they did, thatís a concern obviously, but my real concern is how I donít know at this point more than what I do know. I am glad I know what I know, but I want to know what I donít know.Ē say Wetherell.
Both the students and the university could be punished by the NCAA for providing the improper academic assistance.
