to get kicked off the team at FSU?

This is from the coach who prays for misdemeanors when his boys get charged with felonies, and surprisingly often gets his prayers answered. So many FSU players get in trouble that cracksmoker.com actually had to add an index so you could find the player you were looking for easier. Bowden doesn't even do this for players convicted of assualt, what could they have possibly done to get kicked off the team?


Florida State wide receiver Fred Rouse and offensive lineman Cornelius Lewis were kicked off the team Friday by coach Bobby Bowden.

"Both players are dismissed for conduct detrimental to the welfare of the football team," Bowden said in a brief statement that offered no additional explanation.

Both players had been disciplined by Bowden during the season. He suspended Rouse for one game after the freshman argued with coaches during the Seminoles' 26-21 loss to Virginia.

"I didn't like it a bit," Bowden said then. "It's one of those things that better not happen again."

Rouse was one of the most sought after recruits in the country last year.

Bowden also suspended Lewis, a redshirt freshman, for a game during the season for a violation of team rules.

My preferred list of punishments...

Charges pending -- suspended until resolved.
Misdemeanor conviction -- 1 game suspension per
Felony conviction -- 1 year suspension per
Loss of eligibility: two+ instances of felonies or 3+ instances of midemeanors (no contest pleas == convictions here).

Going back to the original topic, I really don't know what you'd have to do to get kicked out from Free Shoe U
