Here’s a look at the transcript from FOX’s coverage of the BCS title game. The comments from the announcers are what prompted members of Florida State’s compliance office to contact the Big 12 concerning Mike Balogun’s eligibility.

The scene

1st and 15, 4:23 left in first half. Balogun tackles Chris Rainey for a four-yard loss.

The transcript

Thom Brennaman: And again it’s Balogun, who’s only making his second career start. A 25-year-old who played at Lackawanna Maryland College last year, did not play high school football his junior or senior years in high school. Three years ago was a full-time construction worker. They found him on an Internet recruiting service.

(Graphic flashes onto screen, reads: Mike Balogun, JR. Major: Sociology Hometown: Upper Marlboro, MD.)

Charles Davis: He played a little semi-pro ball, the Prince George Jets, the Maryland Marauders before he went to Lackawanna. 25 years old but gaining in confidence on every snap here in the title game.
