Independence Bowl plans to host Florida State despite bowl eligibility questions

Bowl plans to host FSU despite questions about Seminoles' eligibility

OL coach Trickett will not remain on FSU staff, but will stay for bowl

Florida State says it is bowl eligible after all.

The report focuses on Florida State's 77-6 win over FCS team Delaware State on November 18.

Even with the findings from the Reddit investigation, it seemed highly unlikely Florida State would get bounced from the Walk-Ons Independence Bowl they are slated to play in Wednesday against Southern Mississippi.

He further said Lalu Prasad's only fault was that he belongs to a backward class and fought against social injustice. There are six cases related to the fodder scam, and this is the second case in which Lalu has been convicted.

According to an FSU release, those reports neglected to account for a long-standing NCAA rules interpretation that permits institutions (Delaware State) to use academic scholarships and other forms of non-athletics institutional aid received by student-athletes in the computation of this requirement. Delaware State did not meet that threshold, and thus FSU should have been considered bowl eligible.

The Seminoles will face Southern Miss in the Walk-On's Independence Bowl on December 27 at Independence Stadium. Still, with so little time to change, the Seminoles are expected to participate in the game despite not being bowl eligible. Bakonydraco received scholarship data from Delaware State and found 87 percent of the scholarship limit was used over two years.

Because of that, it would mean the win for FSU technically would not count towards bowl eligibility.

The US Secret Service is also investigating the incident, according to the TV station. "It's a right of passage", Strong wrote. Late Sunday evening PST, the LAPD did not answer a call to the media phone number listed on its website.

Their 6-6 record includes a win over Delaware State, an FCS program. But with bowl season in full swing, the likelihood of anything being done is remote.

Florida State could have applied for a waiver through the NCAA's bowl eligibility process had the issue been discovered sooner. "We're continuing preparations for our game", public and media relations director for Independence Bowl Stefan Nolet told the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday afternoon.
