Florida State isn't bowl eligible, will play Independence Bowl anyways

Taggart is trying to bring some lighthearted fun back to the Florida State football program, and the players are showing their appreciation for the change.

Southern Miss: The Golden Eagles came into the game averaging the fourth-fewest turnovers in Division I (8.8 per game) but committed a season-high 19 against FSU.

Florida State went 6-6 this season, a true stinker of a campaign that all went to shit the moment Deondre Francois went down clutching his knee.

It's not that hard to reach a bowl game-this year, 78 NCAA football teams can claim they have.

According to a report from Reddit, Florida State, despite having the requisite 6 wins, could actually still not be bowl eligible.

User bakonydraco submitted a post, which has been confirmed by multiple sources including Brett McMurphy, formerly of ESPN, that Florida State's 77-6 win over Delaware State should not have counted toward the team's bowl eligibility.

The 6-6 Florida State Seminoles are now preparing to face Southern Mississippi in the Independence Bowl on December 27th, but very detailed report posted on Reddit questions whether Florida State is officially bowl eligible, just days before the game.

Facebook challenges music streaming giants with Universal Music deal
Neither Facebook nor UMG are saying how much today's deal is worth, only describing it as a "global, multi-year agreement". YouTube still hopes to enter talks with video-hosting service Vevo to include its music videos on Remix.

FCS teams must award at least 90-percent of their allowed scholarships over the past two years in order to count as a win towards an FBS team's bowl eligibility.

The Seminoles are trying to remain focused on the bowl game preparation, but the thoughts of moving forward under Taggart's new leadership is a healthy distraction.

FSU wide receiver Nyqwan Murray discusses Willie Taggart's hiring and how the Seminoles are preparing the Independence Bowl against Southern Miss on December 27, while speaking to media on Tuesday.

"I just wanted to make sure I get the right guys", Taggart said.

Florida State's most notable assistant coach, is leaving the school to reunite with former head coach Jimbo Fisher.

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.

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