Drunks and Punches at FSU

Dalvin Cook

Last month, FSU running back Dalvin Cook was arrested on charges that he (allegedly) repeatedly punched a woman outside of a bar in Tallahassee, Florida. The release of this story came within days of fourth-string FSU quarterback De’Andre Johnson being suspended by the team for punching a woman inside another bar in Tallahassee, Florida. I will concede upfront that I agree with what Cook’s lawyers are telling us. The two cases are different.

In a moment of youthful […]

Who is Helping Jameis Winston? Apparently Nobody.

Jameis Winston

At the time of the writing of this blog (September 18, 2014), Florida State University is currently ranked #1 in all national football polls. Clemson University is hovering around #24 (we’ll get to Clemson shortly). The quarterback for FSU is an extremely talented athlete by the name of Jameis Winston (but you probably know that already). He is so talented, he won the Heisman trophy as a freshman, and everyone said he was a guaranteed lock to eventually go in the first round of the NFL draft; maybe #1 in […]
