I’m a lawyer.  I take a lot of crap from folks about my profession, but the reality is that most of the time I’m proud of the way attorneys conduct themselves according to professional standards.

This, however, isn’t one of those times.  Sheesh.

Jimbo Fisher is a funny guy.

Oh, wait… you were serious about that?

Still enabling

It was a night game.  Fisher comes out of the Nick Saban school of micromanagement.  And we’re supposed to believe that FSU’s staff had all day to get their act together and didn’t.

Yeah, I’d say Winston was tremendously effected by that, my man.  Tree-men-dous-ly.

There is no team in me.

Jameis Winston really doesn’t get it.

The thing is, the school looks even dumber covering for him.

Jameis Winston’s bridge too far

Now comes word that the reigning Heisman Trophy winner is suspended for the entirety of the Clemson game.

Winston, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner for the top-ranked Seminoles, originally had been suspended for just the first half against the visiting Tigers after a profane and sexually explicit outburst in the student union on campus earlier this week.

But Florida State decided to extend his suspension to the entire game because Winston was not entirely truthful or forthcoming regarding Tuesday’s incident, a source told ESPN.

“Based upon the results of our continuing investigation of Tuesday’s incident involving Jameis Winston, we have decided to not play him for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday night,” interim Florida State president Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox said in a joint statement Friday night.

There’s no question that Winston’s got some serious maturity issues, but, honestly, after the school has repeatedly enabled his earlier bad behavior, why should there be any shock on officials’ behalf that he wasn’t entirely forthcoming about what he did?  It’s worked before.

Note also the absence of Jimbo Fisher’s name from the joint statement.  That’s probably not a good thing for the football program.  Add in the inevitable rumor mongering, and it’s hard to think Gus Malzahn isn’t already making preparations.

“What it does is it helps you keep up with the Joneses.”

Here’s another example of why there’s no money in college football to pay players.

“… we have to keep learning and educating.”

Can’t Jimbo just outsource this problem to the baseball coach again?
