Even before the kickoff, the FSU fans were flaunting their painted faces and chanting their grade-B movie Indian chant, and doing the infamous tomahawk chop. "Yes, we are killers; we are savages who will use our tomahawks to take your scalps."
For years, we as college football fans have been separated from justice. The organizations of the NCAA and the BCS have prevented us from having a true National Champion when it comes to college football.
Word came to Florida State University fans that Jameis Winston did something else to embarrass the school. So therefore, I applaud FSU for suspending Winston for half of one of the most critical games of the season, even if it costs us the game against Clemson.

Some people have accused college football coaches of being overpaid, youth labor extortionists. But to make an informed assessment, several key factors should be understood about the college football coaching profession.
