If you were watching Florida State tonight against Pitt, you saw that Jameis Winston had a coming out party. He went 25/27 for 356 yards and 4 TDs, adding a rushing touchdown to boot. To throw some salt on the wound for Texas fans though, it was revealed that Winston dreamed of playing for Texas but Mack Brown ignored him:
Winston during recruiting: “I loved Texas. I grew up watching Vince Young. Texas even has a great baseball program. The first tape I asked our coaches to send out was to Texas. The only school I called was Texas. I dreamed about Texas…”
It was later confirmed that Winston himself called Texas but they didn’t offer him even though he has offers from Auburn, Alabama, LSU, and Ohio State to name a few. If you are keeping score at home, RGIII, Johnny Football, Ryan Tannehill, and Jameis Winston all wanted to play QB for Mack Brown and he turned them away.
Oh and if you are wondering who the QB was that made Mack ignore Jameis: Connor Brewer, who already left UT.

Instead of the gold we are all used to, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and Co. sported a more subdued, nude-colored pair of pants.
Let me start this off by saying that tonight's game is the toughest on Pitt's schedule. Let me also say that tonight's game showed just how far the Panthers have to go before making an impact in the ACC. Finally, I'll say that Florida State has a very good quarterback who is worthy of the hype.

One thing is for certain after Jameis Winston's electric debut for No. 11 Florida State, his blocking could use some work.

The freshmen were on display as Jameis Winston had the best debut for a Florida State quarterback in school history, completing 25-27 passes for 356 yards, with five total touchdowns. Tyler Boyd led Pitt with 151 all-purpose yards.
By nature, magnificent artistic debuts carry an overwhelming sense of immediacy. A brilliant moment can be anticipated, expected even -- but when it arrives, there can be some sort of sense that it sprung from nothing and landed fully formed.

I’m going to skip the self-pity over “same old Pitt.” And the tired stuff about how once more on the big stage at home, Pitt was a mess. Even if I hadn’t decided that when I got up this morning, Ron Cook writing that column clinched it for me.
My ire and disappointment is mostly reserved for the defense. I expected issues on the offense, but the defense was a wreck. From...
