TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -Florida State has been put on four years' probation by the NCAA and will lose scholarships in football and forfeit games because of an academic cheating scandal.
The NCAA infractions committee says Friday the case was ``extremely serious'' because of the large number of student-athletes involved in various sports. Academic fraud is considered among the most egregious of NCAA rules violations.
Some five dozen Florida State athletes cheated on an online test from the fall of 2006 through summer 2007 or received improper help from staffers who provided them with answers to the exam and typed papers for them.
