Jameis Winston Sued by Alleged Sexual Assault Victim

Jameis Winston Sued

With two weeks before the NFL draft is to begin, the presumptive top pick Jameis Winston is being sued.

The woman, Erica Kinsman,  who accused the former Florida State quarterback of sexual assault in December 2012 has filed a lawsuit against Winston.

According to the news reports, the lawsuit is over claims of sexual battery, assault, false imprisonment and “intentional infliction of emotional distress arising out of forcible rape.” It was filed Thursday in the Circuit Court of the Ninth Judicial District.

As part of his college tour, the  star of “The Wedding Ringer” hit up Florida State University.  He met with some of the football players which included the controversial quarterback … Winston.

Despite the fact that it was all in fun and very  apparent based on the look of  Winston’s face that the comedian actor struck a nerve  when he told the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner that he  “started to bring a bunch a crab legs to see if you was gonna take ’em!”

Watch the video..it’s hilarious to everyone except Winston!

College Football 2013 – Recapping Week 7

College Football,   after 5 weeks of waiting for the weekend of big upsets, we got it last week.

Going into play last CollegeFootball Week Sevenweek, there were 17 unbeaten teams in the Top 25.

After last nights butt whipping in Clemson, we are now down to 10 unbeatens in this week’s Top 25. 5-0 UCLA goes to Stanford and gets rocked. UCF goes to Louisville and comes from behind to upset Louisville. Clemson gets humiliated at home by FSU. On top of that, South Carolina goes to Tennessee and hands one to the Vols on a silver platter. Beat up Georgia goes to Vandy and blows a big lead to lose for the second week in a row. LSU goes to Ole Miss and blows their chance for a potential shot at the BCS title. Florida goes on the road to Missouri and shows us once again they have no offense. Shockingly, Missouri now controls the SEC East! Johnny Football couldn’t muster one last drive and Texas A&M bows to Auburn. Overall, some of the SEC heavys took themselves out of the big time national scene. After having 8 teams in the Top 25 last week, we may only see 6 this week.

Top 25 College Football Scores

The biggest loser of the day was the South Carolina Gamecocks. After falling behind early, they clearly took control of the game only to shank punts and take stupid penalties in the 4th quarter. Had they won, they most likely would have been ranked 5th this week setting up a HUGE game at Missouri this week. Clemson, layed an egg at home versus their nemesis FSU and took themselves out of any chance for a shot at the BCS crown. LSU, the highest ranked one loss team going into play yesterday, let their title hopes slip away with 3 interceptions before they knew what hit them and still had a chance for the win.

No. 1 Alabama 52 (7-0) , Arkansas 0 (3-5) Recap

College RankingsOnce again, at crunch time, their “D” let them down and now all they can hope for is a couple of upsets against ‘Bama and Texas A&M to hopefully get a meaningful bowl game. You know it’s bad enough when Louisville fan runs their mouth screaming for respect. What’s worse is when the head coach ( Charlie Strong ) says on national TV that they don’t get any respect from around the country. NOW you know why you don’t get any respect! You play in a weak conference and you don’t play any meaningful non conference games. Who really cares if you win the AAC conference now. Have a nice 11-1 season and thank you for playing. You’ll still get a $5,000,000 payday for a bowl game!

So, at the end of the day, we are still looking at a matchup between Alabama and Oregon for the BCS title. That’s the game everyone wants to see right now. What about a 7-0 FSU squad in the title game? What about a 7-0 Ohio State team having a shot? Baylor is destroying everyone and is 6-0. Why not them? The “U” is still undefeated, don’t they deserve a chance? Is anyone giving Missouri a chance? Here is the good news. The Crimson Tide still have Auburn ( their hated rival ), LSU, and the SEC Championship Game left on their schedule. Oregon has UCLA, Stanford, Oregon State, and the conference championship game ahead of them. FSU, now the media darling, has Miami, Florida, and the ACC Championship left to go. Missouri still has South Carolina, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Ole Miss, and the SEC Championship remains on their schedule. Ohio State still has Wyoming, Idaho, Bowling Green, N. Texas State, Troy, and Ohio Eastern AT&T School Of The Arts, remaining on their pathetic schedule.  Baylor has Texas, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and OK State left to play. Could a one loss team get in over an undefeated team? So many games to go, so many possibilities, so many scenarios – that’s why we LOVE college football!

College Football Week Seven

College Football Trivia – The First Game

  • The first game of college football took place on November 6, 1869 between Rutgers University and neighboring Princeton. This first game didn’t really ressemble modern college football at all. Each team had 25 players and the ball could be moved only by kicking or batting it with the feet, hands or heads – there was no forward passing. The final score was 6 – 4 for Rutgers.
  • The forward pass was first introduced to college football in 1906. This addition to the game would lead to greater scoring and reduce the number of injuries caused by mass maulings and tackling.

A To Z Top 25:

  1. Alabama 7-0
  2. Oregon 7-0
  3. FSU 7-0
  4. Ohio State 7-0
  5. Miami 6-0
  6. Baylor 6-0
  7. Missouri 7-0
  8. Stanford 6-1
  9. Clemson 6-1
  10. UCLA 5-1
  11. Oklahoma State 5-1
  12. Oklahoma 6-1
  13. Louisville 6-1
  14. Texas Tech 7-0
  15. Texas A&M 5-2
  16. LSU 6-2
  17. Fresno State 6-0
  18. Virginia Tech 6-1
  19. South Carolina 5-2
  20. Auburn 6-1
  21. Northern Illinois 7-0
  22. Oregon State 6-1
  23. Michigan State 6-1
  24. Michigan 6-1
  25. Tie UCF 5-1, Wisconsin 5-2, Nebraska 5-1

Week 8 Key Games:

Tennessee @ #1 Alabama

#10 UCLA @ #2 Oregon

Penn State @ #4 Ohio State

#18 South Carolina @ #7 Missouri

#8 Stanford @ #22 Oregon State

#9 Clemson @ Maryland

#14 Texas Tech @ #12 Oklahoma

Vanderbilt @ #15 Texas A&M

If Week 8 is anything like the previous 2 weeks, we may be in for another wild ride. Several of these teams could completely eliminate themselves from national contention this week. If Clemson loses, UCLA loses, Oklahoma loses, the loser of the Stanford-Oregon State, Ohio State loses, and Missouri falls, they are all out of the BCS picture….for now.  What would happen to the polls if Alabama and Oregon get upset? My head is spinning with all the possibilities that are left to be played out!

College Football Trivia – Longest Streaks

  • A record, which might never be broken, is Prairie View College’s 80-game losing streak during the 1990s. During the 1991 season, the Panthers were outscored by an average margin of 56 – 4.
  • The longest winning streak in college football history is 47 games, set by the Oklahoma Sooners  between 1954 and 1957.

College Football Trivia – Worst Defeat

  • The most lopsided victory in college football history is the massive butt kicking the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets laid on Cumberland University in 1916. The Yellow Jackets showed no mercy in beating Cumberland by a score of 222 – 0! Cumberland had just one play for positive yards during the game, while Georgia Tech scored an unbelievable 32 touchdowns!

College Football Trivia – Top Teams

  • The University of Michigan has won more games than any other team in football. The Wolverines have won 842 games since they started playing in 1879.
  • Although Yale isn’t anywhere near a college football powerhouse now, the school has won the most National Championships, with 18. Yale’s last title was in 1927.

Fred Rouse “Outside the Lines” Video

OTL: Fred Rouse, Florida State Academic Scandal

According to a Florida State and NCAA investigation, members of the university’s athletic academic support unit in some cases supplied answers to tests, and in other cases typed papers, for 61 athletes in football and other sports.  Read more here

Fred Rouse, a former Seminoles receiver, attributes the prevalence of learning disabled athletes to an awareness of the resources available to those with such a diagnosis. He says some players are just lazy and looking for someone else to do their academic work.  Read full story here

Fred Rouse (born December 17, 1984) is a wide receiver  for Concordia College, formerly of the Lincoln High School,  Florida State University, and UTEP football teams. Declared that he would be the first player to jump straight from the High School level to the NFL. He projected himself as a 4th round pick. On January 20, 2006, it was announced that Rouse and offensive linemanCornelius Lewis were kicked off the team for what was claimed as “conduct detrimental to the welfare of the football team” by FSU head coach Bobby Bowden. He has often been compared with Randy Moss both athletically and personally. He is gifted with spectacular speed and ability and is a decent target, but his lack of focus also made Bowden furious (also similar to Moss).

About 80 percent of the FSU athletes sent to him receive a learning disabled diagnosis.

SEC stiffens penalties for complaining coaches

The NCAA is using Bobby Bowden as a tool against other schools to get them in line, saying they will come after even the innocent to get the guilty. After the NCAA, thinking it was clever, decided to keep the ruling on  the appeal a secret for two weeks, it let FSU release the ruling it put out and, surprise, nothing changed. They still intend to screw Bobby Bowden out of 14 wins that are all his. This music history class that students from 10 sports cheated in had nothing to do with the head coach of each of those sports. The NCAA is punishing Bowden and the other head coaches at FSU because, you may not believe this, the NCAA is simply out to get FSU.   Read full story here

Until her departure in 2007, Monk worked with Florida State’s most academically challenged student-athletes.

The Seminoles hired Monk in 2001 to work with these athletes.

“Florida State couldn’t be left behind,” she said. “I think they recognized the fact that there were a lot of very talented student-athletes who were maybe reluctant learners or who struggled in the classroom who were not maybe academically as prepared to come to college as they should be. And so they were looking at that population — how do we let this talent go by? Is there some way that we can have both? Can we have the talent and can we also provide them with some kind of help so that they can remain academically eligible while they are in school?”

Monk received a glowing review in her first year on the job. As she experienced more and more success keeping at-risk athletes eligible, she says she became a tool of recruiting, with coaches and parents asking her to work with athletes with increasingly severe learning disabilities. That’s when she made what she calls an error in judgment, asking one basketball player in 2007 to input the answers to an online sports psychology test for a teammate who left a hard copy of the test on her desk.

“I was exhausted, totally exhausted,” she said. “I wasn’t thinking clearly and made an error.”  Read full story here

Christian Ponder Pivotal Player, Leader for FSU Football

TALLAHASSEE — The staple of Florida State’s two national championship runs was consistency at quarterback.

For the first time in what feels like forever for FSU coach Bobby Bowden, the Seminoles have an unquestioned starter and leader at the position in Christian Ponder. This season Ponder isn’t fighting to keep his job. It’s his.

FSU offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher chose Ponder as the starter in 2008 from of a three-way battle between D’Vontrey Richardson and three-year starter Drew Weatherford. Ponder earned most of the work, but Richardson, who is now playing professional baseball, was used in specific packages and challenged for the starting role through the first half of the season.

FSU Players Regret Cheating

Talented freshman E.J. Manuel is Ponder’s backup this season, but this is Ponder’s team.

“This year that distraction has went away,” Fisher said. “And it’s had a good impact on him to increase the comfort zone.”  Read full story here
