    Not condoning the Oklahoma side of this, but it's interesting to see that FSU, that paragon of athletic virtue, is battling the dark side of college football.

    Not sure FSU is trying to be the "paragon of athletic virture". It seems the school was trying to get equal treatment for its player and proving again that the NCAA is inconsistent and hypocritical in most of its rulings.

    Point taken. I just don't trust any of them, especially those with a track record like Free Shoes U.

    That was 16 years ago. Might want to get some new material.

    Fancy that, the NCAA is inconsistent in the way it handles football-related issues.

    If Cleveland State played football, they'd be getting nervous.

    Hell, they're nervous right now anyway.

    Didn't the NCAA give Cleveland State football the death penalty? Oh wait, they don't have a football program.

    But the sanctions still remain, just in case, you know. :)

    How did the Fox announcer know about the guy's participation for the Prince George Jets? Surely this wasn't something OU included in pregame notes.

    Yep. A lot of whistles being blown here. The nerve of FSU to actually call the compliance office! It's an outrage, I tell ya!

    “The purpose of the inquiry to Oklahoma University was to gather information regarding a similar eligibility case involving former Florida State wide receiver Corey Surrency,” said Brian Battle, FSU Associate Athletic Director for Compliance. “Florida State’s compliance office did not contact the Big 12 or the NCAA.”

    “There was no ill intention on our part,” Battle said. “It was merely a fact-finding phone call, made only to the Oklahoma University compliance office. This is a very common practice amongst compliance offices with this type of complex situation.”
