    20 Florida State Players May Be Suspended From Game

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=3159534
    As many as 20 Florida State football players will be suspended from playing against Kentucky in the Dec. 31 Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl, as well as the first three games of the 2008 season, for their roles in an alleged cheating scandal involving an Internet-based course, a source with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday morning.

    Florida State officials are expected to announce the results of the investigation this week. The source said university officials determined Monday night the exact number of football players who will be suspended. Federal privacy laws prohibit the school from releasing names.

    "We want to make sure that we have complete information, and that we have dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's," said Lee Hinkle, vice president of university relations. "It is premature to say anything at this point."

    Coach Bobby Bowden was expected to issue a statement later Tuesday after it was reviewed by Florida State's general counsel.

    The source said student-athletes in several other sports also were implicated in the cheating scandal.

    The investigation already has led to the resignations of two academic assistance employees who worked with FSU student-athletes. The school revealed in September that as many as 23 student-athletes were given answers before taking tests over the Internet.

    I fully agree with the punishment, but if you're going to put a team like that out on the field shouldn't the team just withdraw from the bowl and let a more deserving team have a chance at winning?
