Looks like Florida State should not be bowl eligible this year

FSU Football: Willie Taggart looking for 'right fit' on and off the field

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

The Seminoles and the Golden Eagles will meet at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in Shreveport, La.

However, few teams in college basketball have a more hard upcoming set of games, as the Seminoles will face the No. 4 Duke Blue Devils on the road, followed by the No. 5 North Carolina Tar Heels at home, and then the No. 6 Miami Hurricanes on the road.

The Florida State Seminoles started this season with high hopes, but an injury to quarterback Deondre Francois in the season opener helped lead to a disappointing 6-6 finish.

Without the win, Florida States' record in games that went towards bowl eligibility would have dropped to 5-6.

FCS schools are required to award at least 90 percent of the scholarships they are allowed to hand out.

Rise in number of requests for data from Facebook in Ireland
Facebook had seen a big increase in the number of requests to stop people seeing content that broke local laws, said Mr Sonderby. The social media company also took down 217,265 posts from Facebook driven by counterfeit claims, and 108,094 from Instagram.

College football insider Brett McMurphy then confirmed what the Reddit user found first - that the Seminoles 77-6 win over FCS opponent Delaware State should not have counted toward the Noles' bowl eligibility. The Blazers can also run the ball quite effectively as they're 37th nationally (190.3 ypg); that plays right into the MAC school's strength, however, as the Bobcats are 11th in stopping the run (111.4 ypg).

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher left for Texas A&M prior to the regular season finale against Louisiana-Monroe.

The Seminoles will play their second game without Fisher at the Independence Bowl, a bowl bid the team clinched with its regular season finale win over Louisiana Monroe on December 2.

The Seminoles are trying to remain focused on the bowl game preparation, but the thoughts of moving forward under Taggart's new leadership is a healthy distraction. This would typically make the Seminoles fully eligible for a bowl, but Reddit reports that the victory over Delaware State shouldn't be counted to toward their six wins because the program fell short of rewarding 90 percent of the FCS scholarship limit.
