[UPDATED] This is why the NCAA is so screwed up... (The NCAA changed their minds...partially)

Updated and bumped. - P

I have mentioned this in the past.

This will end up getting them more attention than they want.

The Associated Press and other Florida news organizations are suing the NCAA and Florida State University, saying they violated open government laws by not making public correspondence about an academic cheating scandal at the school.

Yeap...

These guys just don't get it. If they keep it up their tax exempt status will come under fire...

just wait....

UPDATE I:

...And here it is. The answer is NO!

The NCAA has spoken, and the answer is no.

The NCAA has officially rejected a request to release documents in its case against Florida State University athletics. The response is part of an ongoing dispute between Florida news organizations and the NCAA, which says it is not subject to Florida's public-records law.

The response, dated June 8 from Elsa Kircher Cole, vice president of Legal Affairs/General Counsel for the NCAA, reads "... please be advised that the NCAA is not subject to requests pursuant to Article I, Section 24 of the Florida Constitution (Access to Public Records and Meetings) or Chapter 119 of the Florida Statutes (Public Records).

Wait until the Florida congressional delgations get wind of this...Do you think they will have a few questions?

This will be fun to watch...

UPDATE II:

Looks like the NCAA had a change of heart...

The NCAA has changed its mind after all. But it's still playing hardball with Florida news organizations and says it's not subject to the state's public-records laws.

The NCAA has given Florida State officials permission to release previously withheld public documents in the university's appeal of NCAA sanctions. On Monday, more than a dozen news organizations filed suit against FSU and the NCAA to force release of the documents under the state's open-records law.

NCAA Director of Legal Affairs Naima M. Stevenson wrote to FSU General Counsel Betty Steffens, releasing the school from previous confidentiality requirements. The letter said that the NCAA would not object to FSU officials complying with the law.

Uh huh...

Think they got a call from someone with a little more juice than their used to?

I do.

Of course they aren't making it easy but it will all get out in time...
