You are correct, at one time it was a woman's college perhaps I should have worded it different and not used private. FSU at one time was the West Florida Military School and along with the Citadel and VMI are the only schools whose Corp of Cadets have been awarded a Battle Streamer. A small portion of the cadets fought at the Battle of Natural Bridge in 1865, when Federal forces attempted to capture Tallahassee.
Let me state grist, I am not an FSU or Miami fan. Seems a lot of people think that the football teams down south are the worst when it comes to violations with their players. What about the Big 10, who in 2012 had over one third of their schools on probation, 4 out of 10. How about Penn State and their cover up of Sandusky affair. Which would you rather have, a con or a child molester? Really don't think there is a clean conference or school in the U.S.
A few years back there was a joke making the rounds that went something like this; " What do you call the Dallas Cowboy huddle? Ans; A Drug Ring. " So it seems to me that wherever you go in this country, if you see a place where some certain 'class' of people ( like football players ) are pampered and coddled and given free rides, there you will find criminal behaviors. Small time or big time there are criminals in athletics everywhere.
