MOST COMMENTED

[COLLEGE]The Atlantic Coast Conference came down hard on Florida State for traveling to the ACC Women's Tournament without nine starters, suspending Seminole coach Mark Krikorian for one game and fining the school $25,000.

FSU fell to Wake Forest, 3-1, in what ACC commissioner John Swofford called a "disrespectful" move.

The Seminoles used only two starters, and unranked Wake cruised to an easy win. North Carolina Anson Dorrance lamented that the Demon Deacons would be "fresh as daisies," and sure enough, they upset UNC in Friday's quarterfinals.

Florida State will have to forfeit its ACC tournament expense reimbursement of roughly $15,000.

Krikorian will have to sit out the Seminoles’ next game, and he and athletic director Randy Spetman will receive a letter of reprimand from the ACC and must submit a letter of apology by Nov. 12.

Florida State is expected to get a NCAA Tournament bid as high as a regional seed. It was ranked 11th in this week's Soccer America Top 25.
