Florida State is playing in a bowl it's not eligible for

Florida State is playing in a bowl it's not eligible for

In what was a first for the FSU football program, the Seminoles were forced this season to reschedule a postponed game in order to become bowl eligible.

The other players sitting out as they look ahead to the NFL Draft are junior safety Derwin James, junior defensive end Josh Sweat and senior receiver Ermon Lane.

The folks over at Reddit College Football put together quite the story and investigation into the number of scholarships that FCS foe Delaware State, who the Seminoles beat 77-6 on November 18th, to see if it met NCAA rules.

Officials from Florida State, the ACC and NCAA did not respond for comment, McMurphy said.

Six wins are what it takes to be bowl-eligible, with some leeway for five-win teams to enter the mix if there aren't enough six-win teams to fill the myriad of games.

AJ Alix scored nine of her 17 points in the second half for Florida State. "If it was amusing, it would be a comedy of errors".

Florida State: Travels to fourth-ranked Duke on December 30 to start league play. The Seminoles had to scramble to get to 6-6, though, and the Reddit report is just the latest episode in a tumultuous season. The Seminoles had to reschedule a previously cancelled game with Louisiana-Monroe just to get to 12 games, and then the team had to win their last three contests against Delaware State, Florida, and ULM just to get to six wins on the season.

The Seminoles have replaced him with Willie Taggart form OR, considered one of the best young coaches in the country.

Three schools that were eligible to be selected to play in a bowl game will be watching from home while FSU plays in the Independence Bowl.

The article went on to point out there are a variety of ways that FSU football could get around this if the NCAA chose to enforce the rule. "It's altogether disappointing, especially after watching some of these early bowl games", Buffalo Coach Lance Leipold told McMurphy. "But you wish they would have checked it out".

"We're focused on this football team and being the best Florida state football team we can be", Haggins said after Thursday's practice when asked about his team's eligibility.
