    Faded Rose

    And the hits just keep on coming. The latest Nole missing in action for 2008 is Florida State left tackle Daron Rose.

    Rose who started 11 games as a sophomore last season has been ruled academically ineligible to play next season. The 6-foot-5, 285-pound offensive lineman is scheduled to transfer to a junior college and then rejoin the Seminoles when he regains his eligibility.

    Rose was rated the No. 2 offensive tackle in the nation by one of the recruiting services coming out of high school. According to offensive line coach Rick Trickett, Rose was the most physically talented of FSU's offensive lineman.

    Rose was linked to the academic cheating scandal that forced more than 20 players to miss the Music City Bowl and was scheduled to miss the first three games next season if he was eligible.

    With Rose unavailable, redshirt freshman Antwane Greenlee is listed as the starting left tackle on the depth chart.
