    True! Add any conference that had a team with a 6-6 record.

And then after a few seconds of bells and whistles, the answer pops up, "Nope on the Noles!" Ah hah!

    Did someone do that to us, and all the other 6-6 teams? Why would anyone even think to check that? I know for a fact NONE of you suspected FSU was not bowl eligible. That possibility never even crossed your mind. None of you even remotely considered, hey! maybe FSU is not eligible, someone better check on it. But after it is revealed, you're like, of course! everyone knew that. What's wrong with the Idiot Bowl, the CUSA Commish, UTSA's AD?????

    Frankly, I don't care that FSU got in "illegally." If it taints the Idiot Bowl I'm all for it! I hope it is mentioned on the telecast, and is a topic of discussion. But, instead, I suspect ESPN will try to sweep it under the rug.
    It isn't our job to know, but it is the job of the entities I named. I do agree that I hope it is talked about during the broadcast a LOT, but I suspect you are right - they will sweep it under the rug.

    Just saw a media release....released by FSU....that Delaware State did indeed meet the 90% rule thingy, and thus FSU is bowl eligible, and always has been. That's what their PR folks are saying.

    Take it FWIW....

    True or not, I guess they are trying to head off any controversy that could be discussed on national tv during the game.

    Looks like FSU might have been okay all along. So maybe some random reddit user might not be the most credible news source? Who would have thought. This was a case of the new, American justice system, you are guilty until you prove yourself innocent. President Trump would have called this "fake news" a week ago.

    The random reddit user was using information provided by Delaware State. In a way you actually do have to prove yourself innocent. The way the NCAA works it is basically up to each member institution to ensure compliance. If FSU had done so it would not have taken days to respond to the question of whether it was actually bowl eligible.

    Horsefeathers. They can forfeit.

    Problem solved.
