    FSU not bowl eligible??

    According to research posted by a redditor, Florida State is technically not eligible for a bowl game because their win over Delaware state does not count.

    Of course the internet is never wrong...

    Isn't Delaware State a Division I school? They are like schools in the SWAC, Div I FCS. Why wouldn't that game count for FSU?

    The FCS schools that we play HAVE to give a certain % of Grant in Aid over a 2-year period to count towards bowl eligibility - Delaware State didn't meet the number (about 3% below). That's why no FBS schools play the non-scholarship Ivy League or other FCS schools that don't give scholarships.

    Wow. They need to strip FSU’s bowl “streak” from them. But, like ULL does with their “name,”they would likely just continue to falsely claim it

    The schools like UTSA who were eligible but left out should sue them.

    That would be the responsibility of C-USA. Somebody should send her an email letting her know what happened.

    Wow! more mud in the face of the Idiot Bowl committee. Even though they don't have direct control of what schools do re: scheduling, etc. and can't control game results, it's still a stain on the Idiot Bowl bufoons. They officially have a bowl-ineligible team in their bowl.

    Now, for FSU, what idiot was in charge of scheduling and "making sure" all games would count toward bowl eligibility? Again, I don't know the degree, if any, an Athletic Department can control what other schools do...i.e. make sure to stay in touch with scheduled opponents to monitor such things. More than likely, FSU, in its own arrogance, figured they wouldn't need the Delaware State win to even be bowl eligible so maybe they didn't care to know.

    It is too funny! I despise the Idiot Bowl committee and I despise FSU, mostly because of an anti-Trumper who HATES Trump, and is an FSU alum, who always wears 'noles stuff. Even when it is inappropriate to. I hope USM donkey-stomps 'em, and I can add that to FSU's cheating/tainted bowl appearance. This moron says Trump is not a real president. I'll tell him, FSU is not a real bowl-eligible team, hah!

    Ya gotta love it!

    IMO, it's at least partially our commissioners fault. Her ignorance of this FSU issue cost her conference another bowl appearance. That's on HER.

    If FSU stuggles in the game, this issue will dominate the telecast.

    From McMurphy:

    "Multiple bowl and industry sources said there’s basically nothing that can be done this late about the oversight, so FSU goes bowling while three other more deserving teams stay home."

    The bottom line is now that it's known Florida State is ineligible they need a waiver to play in the game. I would like to see what would happen if either Western Michigan or Buffalo contacted the NCAA and indicated they were prepared to play in the game on 12/27. As Western Michigan won the head to head matchup over Buffalo I am assuming they would have first refusal.

    Obviously, neither team is prepared, but both coaching staffs are still working as the signing period is still ongoing. Could either team get enough players back onto campus and pack for a bowl game charter flight by the evening of 12/26?

    Florida State is lucky this wasn't known 5 or 6 days ago.

    Very true. BUT, that other "more partially" is all on the cracker-jack I-Bowl committee.
