Tony Barnhart’s college football blog is back, larger than ever. Today’s post is pretty much an exercise in catch up, which is what you’d expect.
But there is one little gem in there. Barnhart holds out the prospect of hope to FSU on that school’s appeal to the NCAA of having wins stripped from its overall record due to academic fraud. Based on what, you might ask?
Based on Georgia Tech’s cheatin’.
Florida State is going to appeal this part of the NCAA’s ruling and I believe the school will prevail because there is a precedent. In 2006 Georgia Tech won an appeal on an academic fraud case claiming the penalty of vacating football victories was excessive and inconsistent with previous cases of this kind. The appeals committee agreed.
Maybe Diddy’ll send Tech a thank-you note.
