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."
I would suggest that the NFL demand full copies of the investigation and the judge's rulings and demands that Winston answer questions posed by NFL lawyers before it authorizes the presence of Jameis Winston in the 2015 draft.
As years go, 2014 was an interesting one in the sports world. Some might characterize it as depressing while others may look back on it as exhilarating. Whatever the case may be we know that at some point in the future we will look back on the year 2014 with nostalgia.
Justice Harding was a fine jurist, and it is unfair to besmirch his reputation by the suggestion that he was motivated to insure that the university would not lose its quarterback before the big game. His ultimate judgment, however, does warrant review and, if found failing, criticism.
The much anticipated day of revelation has arrived. No, not the second coming of Bear Bryant, but rather the announcement from the Committee of Justice that on Sunday revealed the top four teams in college football.
Let's not forget how we felt immediately upon hearing the news of the shooting at FSU and the many other shootings that have happened nationwide. Holding on to these memories is our only hope that something will change.
Amir Bar-Lev's documentary, Happy Valley, about the Penn State sex scandal that unfolded from mid-2011 to 2012, may surprise people.
The Hurricanes have flown under the radar for most of the season in the relatively unheralded ACC. All three of their losses have come on the road to teams that have combined for just six losses on the season.
What if the committee said to FSU... at least for this one week, "No you won't be our top team, or even our bottom team. We are going to leave you out of the rankings all together."
It's game time, and touchdowns and tailgating are in full swing. But not everyone is ready for some footballlll. These five great college towns offer plenty of amusements beyond the end zone. These are our top picks for destinations that score big with football junkies and non-fans alike.
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.
Just a few years ago, Winston would be called greedy if he demanded more money for his likeness or signature. But it's refreshing to see someone of his generation, tabbed as self-centered, realize that a college education is, indeed a privilege.
2015 marks the first year of the Final Four format, which means the much anticipated end to the 16-year BCS. That is a good thing for college football. Let me rephrase that: It is a great thing for college football. And the SEC showing a chink in its armor might just be as well.
Your college team may have battled its way into a top bowl game, but are its fans die-hard enough to fly in for the match-up?
This Fashionista embodies the artistic and bold FSU student; she's an art major who surrounds herself in beautiful art from her own hand-made wild art pieces and paintings, to creating incredible photos through her own art and photography.
