FSU QUARTERBACK BACK IN THE SPOTLIGHT
By FITSNEWS || If Florida State University’s football team defeats Georgia Tech in this weekend’s Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) football championship, the Seminoles will earn one of four spots in the inaugural college football playoff.
The only question? Whether FSU – owners of a 28-game winning streak – will have 2013 Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston under center as they look to repeat as national champions.
The redshirt sophomore – whose off-field exploits continue to make all the wrong sorts of headlines – hasn’t played terribly this year, but his team isn’t the powerhouse it was a year ago. And after throwing for 4,057 yards and 40 touchdowns (against only 10 interceptions) last year, Winston has seen his yardage (3,250) and touchdowns (21) decline – while his interception total has jumped to 17.
Winston had arguably his worst game of the year last weekend against the Florida Gators – completing only 12 of 24 passes for a season low 125 yards and four (count ’em, four) interceptions. Still, the Seminoles emerged victorious
More to the point, there are lingering concerns about his alleged involvement in a December 2012 sexual assault. No criminal charges have been filed related to the incident, although Winston is being investigated by the school to determine whether he violated its student conduct code.
Overseeing that process? Former Florida Supreme Court justice Major Harding.
Winston’s student advisor, David Cornwell, was adamant that Winston did nothing wrong.
“Unfortunately, in these type of cases, the only way to confront the lie is with the truth,” Cornwell said. “Jameis will tell the truth … and we are confident that Justice Harding, when he hears her multiple lies and Jameis’ truth, will find as every other entity has to this point, that she is lying.”
A decision on Winston’s case is expected within the next two weeks.
In the meantime, Winston appears to be having some fun with the local “Tally Sloots” – female Florida State students who enjoy engaging in certain extracurricular activities.

“I’m no doctor, but I think it’s pretty clear that Jameis Winston is a narcissist with some sort of personality disorder,” our intrepid columnist Liz Gunn recently noted. “He’s dangerously impulsive, thinks he deserves special treatment and clearly lacks empathy for others. When I said he’s ready for the NFL that was obviously a jab at the current PR state of affairs within the organization. Winston doesn’t seem to be mature enough for college football, much less the NFL.”
Either that or he’s just an overgrown child … we can’t decide which.
