Just like most of you gentlemen.So- all the players get others to write their English papers...assumptions like that are more ignorant sounding than anything a person can "sound like." Better make sure someone in house hasn't copy and pasted Wikipedia in a paper they've turned in before you start pounding your superior chest. The guy can play football, he won an award for that- congratulations on using your talent to better your life. Use is wisely is what I say to Winston. Enter the 21st century and leave your bigotry behind is what I wish for y'all that think it's appropriate and Christian to judge, hate, and discriminate!

Saturday night Florida State QB Jameis Winston became the youngest Heisman Trophy winner ever at 19 yrs, 11 months, 8 days old. Now, as Homer once said, “In youth and beauty, wisdom is but rare!” And a lot of people have been questioning Jameis Winston’s wisdom, grammar skills, enunciation, manners, etc.
Not only did Winston’s speech consist of poor grammar and poorly enunciated words, but the lack of a handshake or hug and failure to mention his fellow nominees in his speech, made Winston seem as if he was there all by himself.
The criticism came no louder than from Sean Thompson, Producer of The Morning Show. When discussion of the speech and the outbursts on Twitter that followed came up, Sean came right out and said that “as a black man, I cringed”. This lit the phone lines, text lines and Twitter up immediately. Some Tweets agreeing with Sean, some not so much.

I have a feeling that this type of activity goes on at most universities. Mark Richt catches a lot of flack for kicking kids off his team for things that others seem to "sweep under the rug". For that I respect him and hope UGA keeps him around for a long time.The sad part of all this is it occurs in many high schools as well and some administrations turn their heads also.
