Florida State vs. Southern Miss

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

5 Florida, this team looks more than ready to make a run to the NCAA Tournament and is deserving of its top 25 ranking.

Neither the Seminoles, ACC or NCAA noticed this, and the Independence Bowl extended an invitation to FSU.

Savoy had 17 points and seven rebounds, while M.J. Walker added 15 points and Mfiondu Kabengele ended with 12 points for Florida State (11-1), which had 13 players in the scoring sheet.

According to McMurphy, it was a "monumental" oversight by FSU, the ACC and the NCAA.

A fan who moderates the college football section of Reddit posted data he claimed to have obtained from Delaware State that apparently showed the football team didn't use enough scholarship funds to meet an NCAA minimum for FCS teams to count toward FBS bowl eligibility. After reaching out to Delaware State, bakonydraco did the math and found that the school was only using 87% of their allotted 63 scholarships - short of the threshold necessary for Florida State's win to count. The Seminoles drew their fair share of flak for a deflating start to the early signing period, but they flipped stud S Jaiden Woodbey from an Ohio State commitment late Wednesday night and now follow it up by grabbing Bolden.

Under that scenario - and if the information is accurate - FSU's win over Delaware State should not have counted towards the Seminoles' bowl eligibility.

The 6-6 Florida State Seminoles are now preparing to face Southern Mississippi in the Independence Bowl on December 27th, but very detailed report posted on Reddit questions whether Florida State is officially bowl eligible, just days before the game.

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. But one of them, traditional powerhouse Florida State University, failed to reach eligibility and will play in one anyway thanks to a shrugging NCAA.

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. He said only Wisconsin asked for verification of the numbers and that was done with a simple letter stating UNI was in compliance.

Florida State: The Seminoles have won 27 straight at home, which is the third-longest current streak in Division I behind Cincinnati (32) and SMU (31).

"We're focused on this football team and being the best Florida state football team we can be", interim coach Odell Haggins said after Thursday's practice.

It has been a rough year for Florida State.
