You had a chance to do things right, but apparently, he chose to misled the university with a different version of events than what actually happened that day in the student union.
Am being told increased penalty for FSU's Jameis Winston came after school discovered he'd not been entirely truthful with them.— Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) September 20, 2014
SOURCE:Winston's suspension due to FSU administration finding discrepency w/ his account of where he was standing when saying theobscenities— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) September 20, 2014
Word spread quickly yesterday that Winston's suspension for the second half was because he misled (read: lied) the university when describing what happened. Funny thing is, when you do something in public like that, there are quite a few witnesses that can make you accountable for your actions and your after-the-fact description of those actions. He made an already bad situation much worse by not being transparent.
At this point, this is getting embarassing for Jameis Winston. As we covered earlier, we're done being Winston-apologists.
