Big business is about image and brand

He's the most recognizable face with the institution that is Florida State University these days

Nobody says you have to like it. But at some point you'll need to accept it

I don't think him yelling that would reduce the attendance or lower the TV ratings come Saturday, I don't think anybody is giving away their tickets or cancelling their tail gate parties either. Just a bunch of Pharassies, hypochrites who pretend they are pious, but really full of shit.

I'm not trying to stir up shit, but does anyone in this thread understand what a university is? And if you do, in what universe is what he did ok?

The University lawmakers are educators, not football coaches

Actually they're administrators who often don't know shit about educating anyone. ;)

Give me a break, and FCK any country that thinks like this! God Bless Europe- a place where they'd laugh this off as a non-issue! A place where they LAUGH AT U.S. culture, deservedly so!


I get what you're saying, but three distinct points:

1. "Fuck her right in the pussy" is probably not someone who was (and is, I think) subject to a rape investigation should be yelling in public.
2. Maybe it wasn't that bad, in the grand scheme, but schools still want their high profile members, such as athletes, to reflect well on the school.
3. Shouldn't this be part of the beauty of America? No one stopped Jameis from saying it. He's not in jail. But freedom of speech isn't freedom from all repercussions.


Exactly. I've never been around a head coach or an AD wouldnt wouldn't get pissed off if one of their players stood up on a table in front of hundreds of other students and strangers in a PUBLIC area and screamed "fuck her in the pussy". That doesn't represent the team the way any coach or athletic department would want.

On what planet are people surprised he was disciplined? Student athletes are held to a higher standard and have much more to lose than Joey Jagoff down the hall in the dorm.

Especially a Heisman Trophy QB, who is not just the face of the football team, but the face of the university, and the face of college football. Add the bad choices and other indiscretions, and it most certainly sets of warning bells.

Had to google reference. Was he benched for that? It happened off campus so he was functionally neither student nor student athlete. I imagine he was disciplined for screaming about pussy because at the time he was on campus and functionally a student. This guy is a winner on and off the field!

I might be wrong, but I think he was suspended from the baseball team for the seafood shoplifting. Not sure about the free soft drink debacle. :lol:
