 TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -Florida State has appealed to the NCAA to reduce sanctions in a cheating scandal so the school won't have to forfeit victories in 10 sports, including up to 14 in football.
Florida State largely reiterated its initial stance Thursday in a formal 28-page written appeal that the penalty announced last month was too harsh.
The NCAA said Florida State would have to surrender victories in games where ineligible student-athletes participated in the fall of 2006 and 2007 and spring of 2007.
Football coach Bobby Bowden has 382 career wins - one fewer than Penn State's Joe Paterno, the all-time major college leader. Losing 14 wins would virtually ruin any chance Bowden has of catching Paterno.
