In addition to a forthcoming disciplinary hearing for what’s diplomatically dubbed “student code of conduct issues”, Florida State QB / reigning Heisman winner Jameis Winston faces an FSU investigation over whether or not he signed autographers-for-cash for the same firm tied to recently suspended Georgia RB Todd Gurley. After Saturday’s 38-20 defeat of Syracuse, Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher expressed frustration with any cynics who believe money changed hands in connection with one company selling 340 authenticated Winston signatures. From the Syracuse Post-Standard’s Chris Carlson :

“Kids sign things all the time,” Fisher said. “So, what do you want them to do, stop signing stuff? We could make them not have any fans from that standpoint and not sign for anybody. That’s what it’s going to come to, and that’s a shame for college football, that somebody exploits a kid. Now, if they’re getting paid for it, then I don’t have any knowledge of that. I don’t believe Jameis did.”
