Found October 29, 2013 on College Spun:
If you haven’t heard, this Jameis Winston kid at Florida State is a pretty good football player. As such, it looks like he’s starting to get some “royal” treatment from his fan base. While he may not yet have achieved the same level of popularity as Miami Heat superstar LeBron James, some Seminoles fans have created a pretty clever shirt to draw comparisons to the two.  Remember that Winston’s first name is pronounced “Jay-miss”, not “Jay-mice”.  @darrenrovell Darren Rovell is definitely a #WITNEIS. Get the shirt all #Noles fans will have for #UMvsFSU. pic.twitter.com/N1QNWaYXvh — #Witneis (@Witneis) October 29, 2013 The shirt’s design is clearly a very clever ripoff of Nike’s famous “Witness” campaign for King James. Unfortunately, there is no way that the NCAA or the CLC signed off here, considering it references a specific player. That doesn’t mean you won’t see plenty of these in the stands this Saturday, however.

NFL scout: If FSU QB Jameis Winston were available, he'd be first pick in draft

Good thing for the Florida State Seminoles that freshman quarterback Jameis Winston isn't eligible for the NFL draft. If he were, he'd probably be the first overall pick. Or at least that's what one NFL scout told me earlier this week. The scout said he is not allowed to talk publicly about players who are not eligible for the draft, but he did offer me this comment...

Miami defense looking to slow down FSU QB Jameis Winston

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Jameis Winston's numbers are ridiculous. A 70 percent completion rate. An average of 311 passing yards per game.

Heisman Forecast: For Winston another crucial game awaits

A year ago, Geno Smith was the Heisman Trophy favorite as we reached the season's midpoint -- but we all know how that turned out. Even the player who took the lead from him, Collin Klein, didn't leave Times Square in December with the 25-pound chunk of history in hand. The point here, is that while it looks like the trophy is Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota's to...

Heismanic Week 9: 10 names that could just be 3

I’ve got to admit that I’m disappointed in my readers. The only crrrrrazzy comments I get are from Paco and I can’t really take him seriously no matter how vitriolic and strident he gets because of that one time where he put all of his personal information in a comment and his name wasn’t even Paco. Hi, Paco, if you’re reading this one. I’m disappointed in the lack of...

SEC honks say "We want the Duckies"

Al.com columnist Kevin Scarbinsky thinks Florida State would be a much tougher matchup for Alabama than the Oregon Ducks. If the choices are Oregon or Florida State, the two teams who've swapped the No. 2 BCS ranking behind Alabama the last two weeks, it's no choice. Give the Tide the Ducks. Why? Florida State has a much better chance to man up to Alabama. FSU has SEC...
