A Roof for Doak Campbell?

Florida State officials are exploring the possibility of building a roof over Doak Campbell Stadium, according to Scott Carter of the Tampa Tribune.

Bobby Bowden has been lobbying in recent years for an indoor facility. Last fall, the team had at least 12 practices interrupted because of lightning.

A more pressing matter for Florida State is an ongoing probe into academic misconduct. At the center of the investigation is an online course titled "MUH 2051: Music of World Cultures" — a course designed for nonmusic majors that meets a liberal-studies graduation requirement.

President T.K. Wetherell was critical of the athletic department's lack of cooperation in the investigation, telling Andrew Carter of the Orlando Sentinel:

"One of the things that was frustrating about this whole process was that as we began to unravel this thing in athletics, their solution was circle the wagons, don't tell [the president's office] what's going on."

There will be an alumni and booster mutiny before a roof is put on Doak Campbell. TK made himself look like an idiot with that one.
