Jameis Winston calls Clemson football stadium ‘our house’ during baseball trip


Jameis Winston has discovered a new benefit of playing two sports in college — he gets to take shots at his rivals during the football offseason. On Saturday, the Seminoles baseball team traveled to Clemson for a game. As the team’s bus was driving through the Clemson campus, Winston posted the photo you see above of Death Valley on Twitter with two words accompanying it.

“Our house.”

Florida State traveled to Clemson in the middle of the season last year when the Tigers were ranked No. 3 in the nation. The Seminoles won the game 51-14 and went on to dominate the rest of their schedule en route to a national championship. What can you really say in response to that? Death Valley is Winston’s house for the time being.

Jameis Winston watches girlfriend Breion Allen play ball; she calls him her ‘boo’


Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston began dating his girlfriend Breion Allen, a Rice basketball player, while the two were in high school. When Winston was accused of rape last year, his defense was that he had sex with the accuser but it was consensual. The Florida state attorney announced on Dec. 5 that no charges would be filed. However, it is almost a certainty that Winston cheated on Allen.

Unless Winston and Allen were on some sort of relationship hiatus, he cheated on her. Despite that, it appears the couple has been able to overcome the situation. Winston attended Allen’s game against Marshall over the weekend and posted a photo of the two embracing after the win.

“Great game @ibreionnicole #support #mylilballer,” Winston wrote on Instagram.

Allen also posted a photo on her Instagram page (which is private if you don’t follow her) and called Winston her “boo.” She attended the Heisman Trophy ceremony in New York in December with Winston and spent time with him in New York City while they were there. By all indications, the couple is doing just fine.

Jameis Winston takes selfie on toilet, says he’s constipated


Jameis Winston probably hasn’t stopped celebrating since he led Florida State to a national championship on Monday night. And sometimes when you get a little crazy, your system gets out of whack. Next thing you know you’re a little backed up.

On Thursday, Winston posted a photo of himself on Instagram where he appeared to be sitting down. According to the description, he was — on the toilet.

“So constipated lol dang but I got greatness behind me even when I take one # realninjaish #believethat.”

The “greatness” Winston was referring to is the Michael Jordan poster he has hanging above his toilet. If this doesn’t fall under the “too much information” category, I don’t know what does. I guess quarterbacks who win BCS titles can pretty much do whatever they want.


Jameis Winston accuser filing civil suit against Winston, Tallahassee Police

Jameis WinstonThe woman who accused Jameis Winston of raping her plans to file civil suits against the Florida State quarterback and Tallahassee Police Department, her attorney told ABC News. They may also sue the school, she said.

“The family is proceeding, with civil action against the TPD and Jameis Winston. And possibly the university,” attorney Pat Carroll told ABC News.

Carroll told ABC that she wants “heads to roll.” She claims TPD was negligent in the way they handled the case and that their work led the prosecutor to drop the case.

In December, Tallahassee Police Chief Tom Coe said in a statement that his department “took the case seriously, processed evidence and conducted an investigation based on information available at that time.”

The accuser first filed her complaint with the police on Dec. 7, 2012. The case was considered open-active for a few months while it was investigated, but it was changed to open-inactive a few months later. The case was moved to active in November after new information emerged (or after media began pushing them, depending on what you believe).

Florida’s state attorney Willie Meggs said that November was the first he’d heard about the case. After conducting an investigation, Meggs announced last month that they decided not to file any charges against Winston.

The accuser left school last semester and reportedly has been warned by the school to stay away to protect her safety.

Trent Dilfer had an incredibly prophetic conversation with Jameis Winston in 2011 (Video)

Trent Dilfer Jameis WinstonIf you thought Tim Tebow was prophetic in his BCS National Championship Game prediction, wait til you see this video of Trent Dilfer conversation with Jameis Winston in 2011.

This conversation took place at the Elite 11 camp, which is a competition among prep quarterbacks that starts off regionally and ends with 11 quarterbacks competing on a national stage. The camp is sponsored by ESPN, which likely explains why Trent Dilfer was involved.

Dilfer raves about Winston’s smarts and was particularly impressed with Winston’s ability to learn quickly. He told Winston that he would be playing in the NFL one day if he wanted to. And then he made a prediction:

“It’s going to come down to 3rd and 7 in the fourth quarter, down by 4, and they’re going to keep you in the pocket. They’re not going to let you be fast and quick and all that. And that’s going to be a mistake because you’re going to beat em’ here. And that’s what I’m most impressed with,” Dilfer said, as he pointed to his head.

And that’s pretty much how things turned out on Monday night. Winston faced a 3rd and 8 from the 10 with his team down four. On the very next play, he threw the game-winning touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin.

Just like Dilfer said it would happen.

Jameis Winston responds to critics of way he speaks

Jameis Winston postgameJameis Winston on Tuesday did the most tweeting he had done since August, before the college football season began. What was his first item of business after winning the national title? Sticking it to his haters.

Winston also sent this tweet in response to everyone (such as myself) who criticized the way he talks or his speeches:

Yes, yes they are national champions, and yes Winston led them to victory. I still don’t like him as a speaker though. But that doesn’t matter so long as he’s an excellent leader on the field, which it seems like he is.

Jameis Winston postgame speech – inspirational or confusing? (Video)

Jameis Winston postgameJameis Winston put together a heck of a fourth quarter to lead Florida State to the national championship over Auburn 34-31 on Monday.

After starting off the game shaky, Winston finished 20-of-35 for 237 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He threw for both TDs in the fourth quarter, including the game-winner to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds left. Winston really put together a heck of a close to the game to show everyone why he was the deserving Heisman Trophy winner.

But Jameis turned as many heads with his speech after the game as he did with his play during the game.

Winston spoke with ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi and shared the emotional message he gave his teammates on the final drive. Though notable athletes like Reggie Bush and LeBron James enjoyed the speech, others, like myself, found it confusing.

Another knock for me — and this is just personal taste — when a player references religion as much as Winston did, I’m turned off.

Many people noted that Winston sounded a lot like Ray Lewis with his speech, and he did. Some people balk at religious speeches while others embrace them. In the end, all that matters is that whatever Winston did or said on the field worked, because he walked away as the champion. Congratulations to him and Florida State.
