FSU suspends Jameis Winston for obscene outburst.

Florida State has suspended Jameis Winston for the first half of Saturday's game against Clemson following the quarterback's obscene outburst in the university's Student Union.

In a joint statement, FSU interim president Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox released a joint statement regarding the suspension.

 "As the university's most visible ambassadors, student-athletes at Florida State are expected to uphold at all times high standards of integrity and behavior that reflect well upon themselves, their families, coaches, teammates, the Department of Athletics and Florida State University," the joint statement said. "Student-athletes are expected to act in a way that reflects dignity and respect for others."

Winston is reported to have jumped on a table in the FSU Student Union and shouted a obscene phrase associated with an internet meme Tuesday afternoon.
