*Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston may be a beast on the field, but off the field he’s proving to be a complete, immature idiot.
Now his off-field immaturity and idiocy will actually keep him off the field for tonight’s game against Clemson, the school announced late Friday night. Initially Winston was suspended for only the first half earlier this week after making “offensive and vulgar” comments about women.
As we reported, the Heisman trophy winner was seen shouting an obscene sexual phrase on campus Tuesday. According to TMZ, the phrase was: “F*** her right in the p***y.”
Winston was reportedly screaming it at the top of his lungs, imitating the current Internet sensation of hecklers yelling out the phrase behind female news reporters who are in the middle of live shots.
It’s the latest embarrassment in a growing list of bad moves off the field for Winston.
Interim school president Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox announced in a joint statement Wednesday that the quarterback also will undergo internal discipline, but did not provide details of the punishment.
The decision was met with criticism that the punishment was too light.
“Based upon the results of our continuing investigation of Tuesday’s incident involving Jameis Winston, we have decided to not play him for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday night,” reads the statement released by the university Friday night.
Winston addressed his inappropriate comments before Wednesday’s practice at his weekly press conference, saying: “I have to tone it down.”
Yeah, right. The 20-year-old quarterback made similar comments after previous incidents and Florida State seems to be growing less tolerant of his immaturity as a person.
While playing for the Florida State baseball team, he was suspended for three games and completed 20 hours of community service after acknowledging he stole $32 worth of crab legs from a local grocery store in April. Before the football season, he said he had matured, learned what it takes to be a leader and understood that he needed to be more careful in his personal life.
Apparently not. At least not yet.
