After originally stating that Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston would be suspended for the first half of Saturday night’s game against Clemson, the school announced via a statement from interim president Garnett Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox that Winston would sit for the entire game.
“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,” the statement read.
Winston’s suspension stems from a Tuesday incident in which he stood on a table and yelled an obscene phrase in the student union on Florida State’s campus. A number of students saw Winston yell the phrase and tweeted about what they saw.
Winston reportedly was not entirely truthful with Florida State officials when he was questioned about the incident. He then admitted the entire story. Thus the reason for the extended suspension.
