Southern Miss unconcerned with Florida State's eligibility questions, players sitting out

  • Florida State starters Braian Angola, Phil Cofer and Terance Mann watch as Travis Light takes a shot late in the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against Southern Mississippi in Tallahassee Fla. Thursday Dec. 21 2017

Florida State the season as the third-ranked team in the nation, but had a nightmare year.

The fan, an applied scientist from the San Francisco Bay Area who uses the nickname bakonydraco on Reddit, said fans in the community have studied bowl-eligibility rules the past two seasons as bowl organizers have struggled to fill games with teams that meet the six-win minimum. This will be the 36th consecutive year that Florida State has played in a bowl game.

/r/CFB bases its report on NCAA rules that state a win by an FBS team (FSU) over and FCS team (in this case Delaware State) only counts toward bowl eligibility if the FCS team is utilizing at least 90% of its scholarship limit. But one of them, traditional powerhouse Florida State University, failed to reach eligibility and will play in one anyway thanks to a shrugging NCAA.

"This is a matter between the NCAA, Florida State and Delaware State".

Regardless, its quite the scenario, especially considering that Florida State had to win its final three games to secure bowl eligibility, including the rescheduled game against ULM.

Florida State is slated to take on Southern Mississippi in the independence Bowl Dec. 27, but according to Reddit College Football, the Seminoles never actually earned bowl eligibility.

The report found Delaware State's average of scholarship grants-in-aid per year in football during a rolling two-year period was 54.815, or equivalent to 87 percent, short of the 90 percent threshold.


For the Seminoles it's a stroke of luck that will allow them to continue their bowl streak, albeit with an asterisk.

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.

"He's doing exactly his job, and I feel like he wants to implement a relationship with the players", defensive tackle Walvenski Aime said.

Florida State interim coach Odell Haggins discusses the hiring of new head coach Willie Taggart's hiring on Friday.

This means that they were not in compliance with Exception 18.7.2.1.1 in the NCAA Division I Manual.

In the weird and freaky winding road that has been the Florida State Seminoles 2017 season, this latest development nearly seems fitting.
