Bobby Bowden thinks consensus among FSU fans is Jameis Winston was embarrassment


Fire up FSU Twitter (#FSUTwitter), because one Seminole icon has quite the spicy take on a more recent face of the program. Enter Bobby Bowden on Jameis Winston.

The former head coach of Florida State was a guest on Paul Finebaum’s afternoon radio show when he made a bit of an eye-popping statement about now former Florida State quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner, Winston.

Perhaps Bowden walks in different circles among Florida State fans than I do, because it seems to me there is a pretty strong portion of the Florida State fan base that goes to great lengths to defend Winston anytime something about him pops up in the headlines. Sure, Winston has his critics and there is no denying he has been attached to some eye-rolling incidents of various degrees during his time in Tallahassee, but is Bowden accurate when he says a consensus of Florida State fans consider him an embarrassment to the university?

Feel free to settle that score in the comments.
