-ESPNTALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- School officials say one of Florida State's starting offensive tackles is ineligible for the 2008 season.
Daron Rose started 11 games at the critical left tackle position last fall for FSU. The 285-pound offensive lineman from Tampa will attend a junior college in a bid to regain eligibility.
Redshirt freshman Antwane Greenlee will move into Rose's spot for the beginning of fall practice in August.
Rose's departure is the second this week for the Seminoles, who are coming off successive 7-6 seasons as they prepare for their first season with Bobby Bowden's coaching successor, Jimbo Fisher, now formally in place.
Florida State will also be without another half dozen of its top players for the first three games because of a classroom cheating scandal in a music history class attended by a large number of athletes.
What a joke this program is starting to turn into. All the news i ever hear about them is bad news and this isnt helping there team at all this season. Rose is a very talented kid who plays a very important position. These kids need to realize that passing there classes will allow them to play football
