Florida State Benches Jameis Winston for First Half of Clemson Game

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Jameis Winston will be a spectator in the first half of Florida State’s showdown against Clemson Saturday after making “offensive and vulgar” comments about women — the latest embarrassment in a growing list of poor decisions off the field.

Florida State interim President Dr. Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox announced in a joint statement Wednesday that the quarterback also will undergo internal discipline, but did not provide details of the punishment.

Several students tweeted Winston stood on campus Tuesday and shouted a lascivious comment about female anatomy that may have derived from an internet meme.

The 20-year-old Winston addressed his inappropriate comments before Wednesday’s practice at his weekly press conference, saying: “I have to tone it down.”
