Talk about adding insult to injury.
After destroying Jameis Winston and Florida State University in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day 59-20, a group of Oregon players peppered the Seminoles' star quarterback with chants of "No means no," while doing FSU's trademark tomahawk chop. The taunt was in reference to Winston's highly publicized involvement in an alleged sexual assault stemming from December 2012. Even though Winston wasn't charged with the crime and Florida State recently cleared the quarterback of any student code violation, it is one of the many off-field issues that has dogged the Heisman winner throughout his college career.
Oregon coach Mark Helfrich was proud of his team's victory, but disappointed by the players who chose to taunt Winston.
"We are aware of the inappropriate behavior in the post game," Helfrich told TMZ Sports. "This is not what our program stands for, and the student-athletes will be disciplined internally."
Second-ranked Oregon will now face No. 4 Ohio State in the national championship game on January 12.
