Seminoles QB Jameis Winston depicted as Jesus on shirt because blasphemy (pic)


Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston has gotten off to a splendid start early on in this still young college football season. The team is 2-0 after laying savage beatdowns on cream puff opponents and have another easily winnable game coming up this Saturday against something called the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats.

While the road gets tougher following this weekend for Florida State, Winston has played incredibly well thus far through the air, going 40-for-45 for 570 yards with six touchdowns to only one interception while chipping in two more touchdowns on the ground.

Seminoles fans are bordering on a state of worshipful euphoria as a result of Winston’s play. So much so, in fact, that he appears to be taking on messianic qualities, at least in the eyes of whoever created the above t-shirt where Winston is depicted as Jesus Christ. Awesome. Forget Holy Spirit, bring on team spirit!

If Robert Griffin III can be treated as some kind of sports savior on a t-shirt, why not Jameis Winston? Why not, indeed.
