Suspended for obscene remarks

17 Sep, 2014

Florida State quarterback Winston is suspended for the first half of the Seminoles’ home game Saturday against Clemson after shouting an obscene statement in the school’s student union. Florida States interim president, Garnett S. Stokes and Athletic Director Stan Wilcox’s joint statement:

As a result of his comments yesterday, which were offensive and vulgar, Jameis Winston will undergo internal discipline and will be withheld from competition for the first half of the Clemson game.

Winston calls his behavior “selfish” and says:

I did something, so I’ve got to accept my consequences. We’re going to think about moving forward and winning the game.
