EffSU Suspends Jameis Winston For One Half Saturday For Shouting Obscenities

The Heisman Trophy is rarely awarded to the smartest athlete in college football.
Florida State’s Heisman-winning quarterback, Jameis Winston, has been suspended for the first half of Saturday’s ACC showdown against Clemson for shouting “an obscene sexual phrase” on campus Tuesday.
"As the university's most visible ambassadors, student-athletes at Florida State are expected to uphold at all times high standards of integrity and behavior that reflect well upon themselves, their families, coaches, teammates, the department of athletics and Florida State University. Student-athletes are expected to act in a way that reflects dignity and respect for others." FSU interim president Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox said in a joint statement.
Redshirt sophomore quarterback Sean Maguire will get the start instead.
The line in Vegas opened with FSU as 22-point favorites – but after Tuesday’s news, the line dropped to 16.5 points in favor of FSU.
Students posted on Twitter that Winston was standing on a table near the student union, yelling “Fuck her right in the pussy,” mocking a recent Internet meme.
