Florida State’s ‘Ask Jameis Winston’ session turned into a joke
Someone in the Florida State athletic department thought it would be a good idea to allow fans to use the hashtag #AskJameis to ask Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston any question they would like on Sunday. This may come as a shock to you, but most Twitter users chose to ask questions that were unrelated to football.
Winston was asked countless questions about crab legs, the rape case he was involved in and some other off-field incidents. Deadspin rounded up some of the questions and comments for us.

How many stiff-arms did he throw to get out of the store without paying for the crablegs? #AskJameis

Jameis, you went 13-0 on the football field and 2-0 in the court system. What was your overall record? #AskJameis

If you go on Twitter and click #AskJameis you’ll get an even better understanding of why this was such a bad idea. Here’s a great summary of how it went overall:

FSU later thanked fans for their questions and said the best ones will be featured on the Seminoles’ official website this week. The school’s selection process for choosing the best tweets will probably differ from ours a little.
