    NCAAF FSU-Kentucky; Suspensions

    Why is Kentucky only a two point favorite?

    36 FSU players can't play because of an academic cheating scandal, violations of team rules, injuries or other reasons. Some of the top defensive FSU players are among the 36 that can't play.

    For the real money bettors out there, if you got locked into Kentucky at -2, I hope you put down a ton of money. Too bad I didn't see the line until now...but its still at 7.5 which is still too low with all of the suspensions.

    Does that equal the dreaded "lack of institutional control?

    The NCAA needs to come down on someone hard for this. SMU should pay.

    No, that isn't a "lack of institutional control" because it occurred at FSU. There is no way on earth Free Shoes U will get in any serious trouble, and tarnish the reputation of the legendary Coach Bowden.

    On the other hand, had this occurred at a lesser institution, I'm sure their program would already have been disbanded.

    And for the record....I don't think the NCAA plays favorites....

    It's not an NCAA issue. The school handled it themselves. As a lifelong Gator fan and as much as I hate FSU there is nothing more that will be done, this happens everywhere, FSU just happened to get caught.
