COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -South Carolina's Steve Spurrier finds himself in agreement with Bobby Bowden.
Spurrier said Sunday that Bowden and the Seminoles should not have to give up 14 victories as part of the NCAA penalties because of an academic cheating scandal at Florida State.
Spurrier said, just as importantly, Florida State's track team should not lose its NCAA championships that took place during the time in question.
When Spurrier was Florida's football coach, he would needle Bowden and the Seminoles when he could. Spurrier once called the school ``Free Shoes University'' in 1994 when Bowden dealt with a scandal involving his players and Foot Locker.
This time, though, Spurrier thought the NCAA's proposed penalties were too severe.
