Other students said they were tired of Winston's off-the-field behavior. Tyler Wendlend, a freshman, said Winston should know to lay low.

After everything else in which Winston has been said to be involved, I certainly don't blame students for being a bit weary of having the antics of one player serve as a terrible distraction and to have their school be in the spotlight on what seems like a monthly basis sometimes. I imagine the team is pretty sick of it too for the most part, but I do agree with others here - this is more than I thought FSU might do.

Listen, this is only the, what, the kid's 3rd incident to make it on national news (after the rape accusations, stealing crab legs and condiments, and then yelling this out in the lunchroom)?  Cut him some slack.  And honestly, based on the trajectory of the offenses, next time he'll just fart in the middle of class or leave his dirty plates in the sink.

Honestly, someone at FSU needs to either lock him in a room until gameday or follow him around and not let him do anything, because he's making FSU look like even more of a clown school than before.  That said, good for them punishing him against an actual opponent.

Yea that half game suspension sure will show him. I hate when school allow their star players get away with thing with no punishment or so little punishment it does nothing. This is his 3rd strike and it's net him a grand total of 1 full game suspension? That's pathetic on FSU's part, it's all about winning and not actually teaching players how to he adults. If your good you can get away with a lot.

He certainly didn't break the law but this is just another addition to a list of questionable behavior by Winston.  I think a suspension is appropriate if nothing else to let him know that he is not above consequences.  And I imagine NFL GMs are taking note.  Nobody likes headcases but everybody knows that kids eventually grow up.

Normally you write this off as just rude, insensitive, stupidity.  Given this guy's history however it's on a whole other level.  FSU has to do some ethics checking at this point.

I just...don't really care, one damn bit, that he did this.  And, I don't care about his history in this instance, this just seems ridiculous to me he's suspended for yelling words in public (words that weren't even intended to cause emotional/mental harm.

I have to say I was surprised FSU suspended him at all - let alone against Clemson with a repeat NC on the ine.  Yes, it was only a half, but they are saying are saying winning a NC is not THAT important that we turn a blind eye.  Yes its only a half, but they didn't have to do anything considering his past and what goes on in college as far as shennanigans.

Come on everyone! We're going streaking in the Quad!!!  I mean college is meant for saying and doing stupid stuff - harmless stupid stuff.  Standing up and saying something obnoxious isn't harmful to anyone but Jameis himself (draft stock plummeting lol).  An easy way for FSU to handle this would have been to have him run bleachers until he puked, but they suspended him for a huge game - half of a game.   

The scary thing for Jameis at least is the pattern of absolute moronic decisions.  Making a mistake happens.  Keep making the same stupid mistake - flashing warning sign - DANGER!  He said he wasn't going to be Johnny Football.  Well kudos Jameis - you're waaay worse than Johnny Football was from a bad decision standpoint.  HINT: Next time get paid $50k for standing up and yelling that... Jeesh...

Manziel just liked to party. Worst thing he did was give a cop a fake ID after trying to break up a fight. He's kind of a douche sure but he's not that much different from your average frat star at a major college. Most of his fuck ups weren't bad except for the fact that ESPN analyzed the hell out of them

Where does FSU expect him to f*ck her? Would they have been more tolerant if he said "f88k her  in her a$$?"  I also understand that OSU's Marching band is practicing walking out the spelling of F**k her in the P***sy for their half time show this Saturday.

Winston in a preseason interview with Kirk Herbstreit said relating to the crab leg that he had made an honest mistake and had fulfilled his obligation for the transgression. This was clearly another dishonest mistake. He never once in his lame apology to everyone in the Seminole Nation did he apologize to Publix from whom he stole from.......

a cancer and he will be one with whatever team he plays for. I imagine the Raiders will take him in the second round, unless he speaks out loud again, it is a long season after all. I too am suprised FSU suspended him at all, I suppose they figure that their defense can keep the game close so he can come back in the second half and be a hero by pulling out the win. Then some of his team mates can look the other way as well. The one's who won't look the other way are right now wondering what all the huboo is about in the first place.

I find myself very disappointed that Chris Fowler is the PBP for this game instead of Musberger. I see no way that Brent could prevent himself from saying something inappropriately hilarious.

On one hand, it's another thing to add to "Dumb things Jameis Winston has done"

On the other....I would be lying if I told you I have never yelled that at friend's. Close friends, and in my defense it was actual, helpful advice

This guy is like a thug, autistic child, and foolish frat boy all rolled into one. What he did was harmless college shenanigans; the only problem is he's too stupid to understand that as a public figure, he has to be above behavior like that, especially with his lengthy track record. Honestly, this simpleton has no right to be in college based on academic merit, and even if he did, he should have been kicked out by now for disciplinary reasons.

What's even more telling is that despite all of the evidence showing a lack of intelligence, impulse control, decision making, leadership, and maturity (basically the skills looked for in a quarterback), this guy is still ranked as a top 3 prospect. Winston is going to be a huge disaster for a foolish NFL team.
