Florida won't appeal NCAA sanctions

Sports briefly

September 26, 1990

The University of Florida decided yesterday against filing a formal appeal of National Collegiate Athletic Association sanctions announced last week, but school president John V. Lombardi proposed cutting eight scholarships in 1991 and four in 1992 in football rather than a ban on a bowl appearance this season.

He said the school suggested the proposal because it feels the no-bowl sanction imposes a "special hardship" on the team's senior class. There was no comment from the NCAA.
