Yesterday we reported on the delay of Florida State's appeal of Bobby Bowden's vacated victories. Not to worry, F$U fans, the fix is in, Bowden's fake wins will stand.
The chair of the NCAA's Division I Infractions Appeals Committee is Christopher Griffin, an attorney with the law firm of Foley & Lardner.
Griffin is listed as an "independent" member of the committee. Wanna take a wild guess as to where he went to school?
Mr. Griffin received his J.D., summa cum laude, in 1978 from Florida State University College of Law, and his B.A. in 1976, summa cum laude, from Florida State University.But wait, it gets better!
Chris Griffin was a young defensive back for Florida State in the early '70s...Griffin has undoubtedly recused himself from ruling on F$U's appeal, but we can't help but wonder how the committee will be influenced by its chair.
Moreover, another committee member, Noel Ragsdale, is a Clinical Professor of Law at Southern Cal, which has it's own NCAA problems. Only a cynic would suggest that Griffin will take care of U$C if Ragsdale takes care of F$U.
