NCAA seeks rehearing in FSU records case
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The NCAA has asked an appeal court to reconsider a ruling for public release of documents on an academic cheating scandal at Florida State.
The college athletics organization also Wednesday asked the 1st District Court of Appeal to certify the case to the Florida Supreme Court as a question of great public importance if it denies a rehearing.
In addition, the NCAA wants release of the documents to The Associated Press and other news media stayed pending further litigation.
They concern a proposal to take wins away from coaches and athletes. That includes football coach Bobby Bowden who could lose 14 victories -- diminishing his chances of overtaking Penn State's Joe Paterno as major college football's winningest coach.
