  • Florida State isn't bowl eligible, will play Independence Bowl anyways

The school could easily granted a waiver to compete by the NCAA, but Independence Bowl officials appear unconcerned with the report.

Taggart had put together a top-five recruiting class (that has since dipped considerably) at OR before taking the Florida State job. Three bowl eligible teams (Buffalo, Western Michigan, and UTSA) missed out on bowl games while FSU never technically earned theirs.

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. Oh, and have I mentioned that this will mark just the second-ever bowl game for the Blazers?

Delaware State, which lost 77-6 at Florida State on November 18, was about two players short of meeting the minimum, according to the post. At least FSU's measly six wins afforded them the consolation prize of a bowl appearance against Southern Mississippi. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because he did not want his real-life details connected with his online identity. The idea behind the rule was to deter FBS schools from playing FCS schools that had no chance to compete with an FBS school. And what a remarkable return it was as Bill Clark's squad won eight games in the regular season, already the most in the program's history - topping the old standard of seven set in 2004 - and finished second in the Conference USA's West division.

Often game contracts between FBS and FCS schools will stipulate that the FCS team meets the scholarship requirement.

"I just wanted to make sure I get the right guys", Taggart said.

"They trusted the numbers we gave them", Dannen said.

"Sometimes you have to do what's best for you", Eberle said of the player and coaching turnover the Seminoles are enduring.

Stefan Nolet, the media relations director for the Independence Bowl, told the Sentinel, "This is a matter between the NCAA, Florida State and Delaware State". It's how you finish.

"We're still going to focus on our job and get our job done [with] no hard feelings or anything". But one of them, traditional powerhouse Florida State University, failed to reach eligibility and will play in one anyway thanks to a shrugging NCAA.
