Florida State Quarterback Jameis Winston will be suspended for the entire game vs Clemson. The Seminoles will face off against the Tigers on Saturday September 20, 2014. FSU made the announcement that Winston will not play on Friday September 19, 2014.
Jameis Winston was initially set to be suspended for the first half of the game against Clemson. Resulting from some sort of turrets type outburst on campus. Jameis had his outburst in the student union earlier in the week leading up to the game against the Clemson Tigers.
Jameis Winston wasn’t upfront about the incident that happened on Tuesday September 16, 2014. So the University decided to extend the FSU QB’s suspension for the entire game.
Jameis Winston made a statement the day following the campus incident. Winston made the following statement:
“First of all, I want to apologize to the university, my coaches and to my teammates. I’m not a ‘me’ person, but in that situation, it was a selfish act, and that’s not how you do things around here. I want to apologize to my teammates because I have now made a selfish act for them. That’s all.”
