Florida State responds to bowl eligibility concerns

Florida State vs. Southern Miss: College basketball game preview, TV schedule

Thus, Florida State's win over Delaware State shouldn't count and would leave the Seminoles at 5-6. "These media reports represent incomplete information, as they only reflect athletics scholarships received". That's according to some leg work done by the college football subreddit r/CFB, which looked into a game Florida State played against an FCS opponent that should not have counted.

With that number being at 87 percent, Delaware State cannot be counted by a FBS school (FSU football) for the sake of bowl eligibility - meaning the Seminoles are 6-6 on the field, but 5-6 when it comes to counting toward bowl games. He further notes that most schools do not face this issue among their six bowl-eligible wins because it is usually as simple as "someone in compliance making a phone call".

Florida State's eligibility was initially brought into question because the report on Reddit noted Delaware State had not met the 90 percent scholarship limit that would have allowed FSU's win over the FCS program to count toward qualification for a bowl game.

FCS schools are required to award at least 90 percent of the scholarships they are allowed to hand out. "If it was amusing, it would be a comedy of errors".

Bakonydraco reacted to Florida State's statement on Reddit. After requesting and accessing a report from the school's statistics, Reddit found that Delaware State used 87 percent of its scholarship grants-in-aid over a two-year period.

"It's a matter between the NCAA, Florida State and Delaware State".

Neither McMurphy or Safid Deen of the Orlando Sentinel was able to get comment from the ACC or the NCAA. "We're continuing preparations for our game".

It was a odd year in Tallahassee, as the Florida State Seminoles kicked off the college football season as the No. 3 team in the nation, lost their starting quarterback in their first game, imploded their way to a 6-6 record, and saw head coach Jimbo Fisher leave for Texas A&M.

The NCAA has an option to extend a waiver to Florida State due to extenuating circumstances, if any action is to be taken at all.
