NCAA Records Fight Over

October 14th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

A six hundred and ninety-five page NCAA report on cheating by FSU athletes is now a public record. FSU released the records today after the First District Court of Appeal agreed with a trial court that the records were indeed public. Deputy Attorney General Joe Jacquot says the court fight sets an important precedent.

“You can’t hide public records behind new technology. As the technology grows, it needs to keep pace with the law. It’s important for Florida, for FSU. We’re talking about Bobby Bowden wins here and the public deserves to see documents related to that.”

If left to stand, the NCAA sanctions are important because they take 14 wins away from Coach Bobby Bowden, who trails Penn States Joe Paterno by four games as the winningest coach in college football history.
