TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State has released documents that the NCAA tried to keep secret about an academic cheating case.
The school Wednesday made public the 695-page transcript of an NCAA hearing to comply with a final decision Tuesday by the 1st District Court of Appeal. The court ruled such documents are public records.
The transcript was released although the NCAA earlier Wednesday appealed to the Florida Supreme Court.
It concerns Florida State's appeal of a proposal to strip athletes and coaches of wins. That includes football coach Bobby Bowden who would lose 14 victories.
It would dim Bowden's chances of catching Penn State's Joe Paterno - the winningest coach in major college football.
