Jameis Winston walked into the room to talk with me for a few minutes and, seeing where we were planning to sit, started moving a mess of chairs around to clear a spot.
That might not sound like a big deal, but just know this: It doesn't happen with star athletes. Winston is the phenomenon of college football, a redshirt freshman quarterback leading Florida State in a national championship race. The Seminoles will play Miami in a huge game Saturday between undefeated top 10 teams.
Eight weeks ago, no one even knew how to pronounce Winston's name. It sounds like Jame-iss, but even some of his teammates, maybe jokingly, maybe not, were calling him Jamison. Now, his press conferences are on national TV, and the restaurants around town have "Famous Jameis" on their marquees. Winston is in a thrilling Heisman race with Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.
Yet Winston is still thinking of other people, still doing normal, considerate things even though he's basicall...
BEST OF MAXIM
On paper, Saturday’s slate of Week 10 college football games look to serve as just an appetizer for Week 11′s high-stakes action. Four of the Top 6 teams (Alabama, Oregon, Stanford and Baylor) are on idle in the opening weekend of November, and each of those teams will be facing monumental tests on either Thurs, Nov. 7 or Sat, Nov. 9.

Jameis Winston threw for 325 yards and No. 3 Florida State rolled to a 41-14 victory against No. 7 Miami in another matchup of undefeated Atlantic Coast Conference rivals that turned into a Seminoles' blowout.
Winston threw two interceptions in the first half after throwing four in the first seven games, but the Florida State defense shut out the Hurricanes (7-1, 3-1) in the...
Florida State and Miami are both undefeated entering Saturday’s game between the teams in Tallahassee, but there’s no doubt who’s expected to win. The Seminoles are favored by 21 points, which is the largest spread for two top-10 teams meeting this late in the year since 1980, per pregame.com. But Jameis Winston, who has been […]
Florida State fans don’t just love redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston for his play on the field – he’s one of the most charismatic players in the nation too. Before today’s big top-ten showdown with Miami (FL), ABC showed a quick clip of Winston doing an amazing pregame handshake with coach Jimbo Fisher’s son Trey.
This thing took serious practice. Via @gifdsports.
Oregon students want to play Alabama. Auburn fans want to play Alabama. And of course, Florida State fans want to play Alabama too. After Jameis Winston and the Seminoles absolutely dominated another highly-ranked team tonight in the Miami Hurricanes, the FSU student body made it abundantly clear which team they want to play in January: the Crimson Tide:
It’s going to be a great...
The Miami-Florida State game on Saturday wasn’t officially a Miami-Florida State game until Bobby Hart and Anthony Chickillo scrapped early in the third quarter. Florida State had the ball at the Miami 31 in a 2nd-and-9 situation up 21-14. Jameis Winston completed a pass down to the 6 to give FSU 1st-and-goal, but flags were […]
Prior to Florida State's showdown against the Miami Hurricanes, Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston busted out a pretty intricate pre-game handshake with coach Jimbo Fisher's son.
This Florida State Seminole fan just stared into ABCs camera and didn’t blink. The hockey mask he is hearing must have taken some work. Florida State is playing the Miami Hurricanes tonight and Jameis Winston is showing you why he is a Heisman candidate. [ABC]
No big-time college football game gets past the guys over at NMA. The Taiwanese animation studio has released yet another short clip to help preview this Saturday’s matchup between Florida State and Miami (FL). They take shots at ESPN’s Lee Corso for being old and Seminoles QB Jameis Winston for saying that the game is “a battle of brothers”. Enjoy:
After seeing the college football landscape this week - the fact that both Alabama and Oregon were taking the week off and Florida State and Miami was the marquee matchup of the week, there was a lot to be said for style points. The Seminoles seemed a bit unbalanced in the first half. FSU is not used to a team trying to match them series for series. As the game settled down, Jameis...
With the Ducks idle there is still college football to watch, some of it with major Duck implications.
#3 Florida State hosts #7 Miami Saturday night at 5:00 p.m. Pacific on ABC, both teams 7-0 and undefeated. If FSU wins, they are likely to get a bump that nudges them above Oregon in this week's BCS poll, although the Ducks can swap paint and pass them with a win over #6 Stanford...
The prime time matchup of week ten involves two long-time rivals that have made a return to national prominence. Saturday night, the No. 3 Florida State Seminoles host the No. 7 Miami Hurricanes. This game between the Seminoles and Hurricanes has major national championship and ACC title implications. The rivalry has seemed to make a big time return this year with all that is at...
The No. 7 Miami Hurricanes traveled to Tallahassee for another top-10 rivalry show down and for a half, the game was close. The Hurricanes came out strong by countering No. 3 Florida State’s early score on their first drive and tying the game at the end of the first quarter. Then, they kept pace at the half trailing by only 7 points after the Seminoles put up two scores on...
The question on the table was this: Would FSU do what most ACC teams do and choke in a big game?
The answer is a resounding "NO".
3 Touchdowns by Running Back Devonta Freeman and a pretty stout defense led the Seminoles to a 41-14 win over the previously unbeaten and #7 ranked Miami Hurricanes.
Freeman ran for 2 scores and 78 yards along with catching 6 passes...
