Florida senator introduces resolution naming Florida State Seminoles the 2020 NCAA champions
What is it about Florida teams either being named champions for a title they didn’t win or declaring themselves champions?
A couple of years ago, UCF infamously declared itself national champion despite not making it to the College Football Playoff. Now, the state of Florida is at it again.
As you can see below, Florida senator Joe Gruters has introduced a resolution naming the Florida State Seminoles the 2020 men’s basketball national champions:
I introduced a resolution today in the @FLSenate declaring the @FSUHoops Team National Champions. The cornovirus will continue to impact all areas of our life but this is Florida State’s year. Congratulations to our 2020 National Champions and Go Noles! #FSU pic.twitter.com/TWOswfSt5T

Yes, the Seminoles won the ACC regular-season title, but they were only projected as a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament (which has since been canceled). Thus, naming them national champs is pretty presumptuous.
That’s never stopped the state of Florida before, though! We can’t wait to see which Sunshine State team gets the championship treatment next!
