FSU receives four years’ probation

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State may have to forfeit some of coach Bobby Bowden’s 382 wins and will be on probation for the next four years as part of its punishment for a widespread academic cheating scandal.
The Seminoles will have to give up two scholarships this recruiting season and one the following year. Other sports will lose scholarships and have victories — including three NCAA national championships in track and field — threatened.
