Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy again in 2014. Winston led the Seminoles to an undefeated season and their third national championship as a freshman last season.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has been suspended for the first half of Saturday’s game against Clemson after he was seen shouting an obscene sexual phrase on campus Tuesday.
Head coach Jimbo Fisher said Wednesday the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner would sit out the first half against the Tigers.
“It was not a good decision,” Fisher said during Wednesday’s Atlantic Coast Conference teleconference. “You can’t make certain statements that are derogatory or inflammatory to any person, race or gender. You have to understand that. You have to be very intelligent about what you say, (because) it matters.”
The top-ranked Seminoles face No. 22 Clemson in the ACC opener for both teams.
