Heisman hopeful and starting Florida State quarterback, Jameis Winston, has made headline news this season as a freshman star in the college football scene.
Winston has aided not only in the Seminoles undefeated season but in giving the ‘Noles chance of a brining a national championship back to Tallahassee, but until now “Famous Jameis” has done everything right as the face of the program.
Over the past few weeks an investigation, which has actually been going on longer than just a few weeks, has somehow surfaced into the limelight of national attention. Winston has been accused of sexual battery and until the past few days it seemed as if all of this was going to go away as if none of it ever happened.
For Winston it seems that this case be the nail in the coffin concerning his Heisman hopes and any hope he has at continuing his collegiate career. News broke Wednesday evening that the DNA found on the victim’s underwear matched that of exactly whom she accused, Jameis Winston.
In all actuality, ESPN.com reported that the chances of the DNA found on the victim’s underwear not being Winston were 1 in 2.2 trillion. If you’re not a math guy, basically what this means is that there was never a real shot at all for the abuser to not be Winston.
The big questions now concerning Winston, other that whether or not he is convicted, which it’s looking like he more than likely will, should go along with his standing not only with his Heisman race but with his university.
What would you do if you were Winston’s coach? How would you vote if you were a Heisman voter? Would you take this investigation into consideration even if Winston was found innocent? If found guilty should this hurt Florida State’s chances of a BCS national championship bid?
