Technically, Florida State shouldn't be playing in a bowl game this year

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

And Florida State interim coach Odell Haggins told reporters after practice Thursday, "We're focused on this football team and being the best Florida state football team we can be", when asked about potentially not being eligible, according to the Sentinel.

Wide receiver Nyqwan Murray says injured quarterback Deondre Francois needs to do a better job of playing less music the players can dance to and play more songs to help them get "crunk" as the Seminoles prepare for their matchup with Southern Miss in the Independence Bowl on December 27 in Shreveport, La. The Seminoles limped to 5-6, and hastily rescheduled a game against Louisiana-Monroe that was originally cancelled because of Hurricane Irma just to reach six wins. But had the report surfaced earlier in the season, Florida State would likely have missed out on a bowl to the three remaining FBS teams who reached 6 wins but were left out of bowl slots due to the total amount of bowl-eligible teams this season.

But a possible administrative error, apparently discovered by a user of the website Reddit, is calling into question whether the Seminoles' victory against Delaware State should count toward the NCAA's bowl-eligibility requirement. He understands that. But Taggart also pointed out he wants to make sure he gets the right coaches for Florida State.

Florida State should have been deemed ineligible based on the scholarship status of their FCS opponent this season. James also played in all 12 games and had 84 tackles.

Unfortunately for the teams that weren't invited, the discovery was made a bit too late to make any changes, and FSU will still play in the Independence Bowl. "We're continuing preparations for our game".

He also revealed the Bank's plans are based on agreement being struck on a transition period by the end of the March next year. Rulings of the European Court of Justice will continue to apply, the EU said .

"I don't know anything about that", he said.

This means that they were not in compliance with Exception in the NCAA Division I Manual.

Taggart had put together a top-five recruiting class (that has since dipped considerably) at OR before taking the Florida State job.

While Florida State will still play in the Independence Bowl against Southern Mississippi, it turns out that the team never should have been invited in the first place.
