Florida State racks up ACC weekly honors

After smashing Clemson Saturday night, a slew of Florida State players took home ACC weekly honors announced Monday.

Quarterback Jameis Winston earned offensive player of the week and rookie of the week awards (he won those two awards at the national level, too), while cornerback LaMarcus Joyner was named the conference’s defensive back of the week.

Seminoles offensive lineman Cameron Erving, receiver Rashad Greene and linebacker Telvin Smith also earned player of the week honors at their respective positions.

Winston completed 23 of 44 passes for 444 yards with three touchdowns and added a rushing score in Florida State’s 52-14 win over Clemson Saturday night. He’s still behind Oregon’s Marcus Mariota in the Heisman chase, according to our own Chris Huston, but has some ridiculous numbers on the season: 71.3 percent completion rate; 1,885 yards; 20 touchdowns to three interceptions.

Consider this: E.J. Manuel, the only quarterback taken in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, had a career high of 23 touchdowns at Florida State. Winston might tie or break that mark this weekend against N.C. State in Tallahassee.

    That whole team outplayed Clemson the whole game. Winston will be a better QB than Manuel was with FSU. I really was wondering when Manuel left who was going to take the reigns at the QB position. I really did not think that Jimbo was going to let that fraile kid Trickett be at the helm. Good pickup with Winston, this dude is really the real deal. Go Noles…

    Not only did they out play clemson, they out classed them. What with dabo spewing his nonsense, trying to break the crowd noise record and taking buses, for a distance that probably amounts to distance of my lazy boy to my bathroom, it is refreshing to see a team look past smoke and mirrors and get the job done. Great job Florida State. You have saved us all from the idiocy that is clemson.

    Gamecock jealousy of the Tigers: the only constant in college football lol.

    A well played game all around for FSU. Saturday night they were a far better team. Those players earned their awards.

    I’d like to share a little story that happened last week. My wife’s co-worker has a son with a congenital heart condition, passed out in school and required surgery this past Friday morning. Dabo Swinney called this young boy on Thursday to wish him well and give him a pep talk before he under went the procedure. That is the type of man Dabo Swinney is. The surgeon commented that the boy had an unusally high spirit and told the Doc “everything was going to be fine since his friend and hero told him it would be.”

    Steve Slurrier aka The Ole Ball Sack wouldn’t waste his time with anyone that isn’t a major donor paying his players. Thank the Good Lord the State of South Carolina has one quality human as a coach. Maybe one day the South Crapolina Jailcocks will get a coach that cares more about people then wins against cupcakes.

    @classyjacklambert hardly jealousy. Four in a row and no reason to think it will change this year.

    Telvin and Mr. Christian, along with All-American LaMarcus.

    By the way for those who want to relate stories about coaches who do good things in the community, Steve Spurrier and his wife do a ton. Not going to list all they have done but it’s easy to look it up. So to try and insinuate that he doesn’t give back to the community is well, just a lie. But then you have to consider the source of the comment and you realize it is no surprise that it is a lie because well, that’s all some people do.

    Yes I know you’ve won four in a row but it definitely comes off as jealousy when you try to say Clemson lacks class because of Dabo’s exuberance or the fact that the players arrive on busses. Now if Dabo’s blamed the loss on something other than our own shortcomings, I could see your point. However, I was actually there and I saw great sportsmanship and respect from both sides, including most of the fans. There’s always some exceptions, I myself was definitely guilty of hollering obscenities until I was kindly reminded that there were children present by the gracious lady behind me. But in all fairness, have you ever seen such an obscenity up of a game as we playe that night? Ugh.

    I guess my expectations are generated by fans such as jonkybon. I know I should not judge all clemson fans, and I really don’t, by one idiot. I have some very good friends who are tiger fans and they handle it with grace and the spirit it should be. But as in all things in life it only takes one to ruin the party for everyone.

    I have always, normally, been able to enjoy the Carolina/Clemson rivalry in a good natured way. But every once in awhile you get one deranged and fanatical fan who apparently lives his life by what happens on a football field. What a sad and miserable life that must be. But that is his choice. But I draw the line when said fan lies about me and my family.

    Oh and in regards to dabo I just think his methods are juvenile. But to each his own. No harm done.

    I understand. We all get frustrated by fans who take things a bit too far, but it’s important to control what you can and not sink to a level that you would not be proud of. Although I admit it is easy to get caught up in the passion of college football from time to time, it is important to keep things in perspective.
