Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has taken the college football world by storm this season. His play has the Seminoles ranked No. 3 in the nation, himself a front runner for the Heisman trophy, and all eyes looking and waiting to see what sort of magic he will pull of next.
With a big game coming up this weekend with in-state rival Miami he is getting the media attention you would expect, but may have inadvertently given the Hurricanes a little bulletin board material to keep them focused and motivated this week.
In a recent press conference Winston referred to Miami as the 'little brother' to his team. Watch the clip and I think you'll agree with me when I say he didn't mean it in a malicious manner; it was just something he said. However, no one like to be talked about in that manner; not even actual little brothers.
So it would not be shocking if Miami is not too happy with Famous Jameis right about now:
This game is an unusual one in that the Hurricanes--even thought they are ranked No. 7--are 21-point underdogs. It's unheard of for a point spread between two top 10 teams to be that big, but Miami has struggled and FSU has been a role.
Something like this might give the Hurricanes the boost they needed to get back on track.
