TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -Florida State University will appeal the part of an NCAA sanction that would take away wins in 10 sports, including as many as 14 in football.
President T.K. Wetherell will announce the school's appeal Tuesday.
Trustees chairman Jim Smith says the board is 100 percent behind the decision. ``It's certainly unfair to coach (Bobby) Bowden,'' Smith said Monday. ``It was a breakdown in academics, a breakdown that none of us condone.''
The NCAA earlier this month took away scholarships and put the school on four years' probation as part of the punishment for 61 athletes who took a music history class where test answers were provided and other prohibited help was received.
