If anybody owns bragging rights against Clemson, it's Florida State's Jameis Winston.

The 2013 Heisman Trophy winner followed up his winning performance at Death Valley last fall by playing a key role in the top-ranked Seminoles' series over the Tigers at Doug Kingsmore Stadium, when he accounted for the final seven outs in FSU's clinching 4-3 victory over Saturday.

Before heading back to Tallahassee, Winston snapped a couple of photos and posted them to his Twitter account.

The first - a photo of Death Valley, was captioned 'Our House' - and the second a photo of Doug Kingsmore Stadium under the lights, that was captioned 'Our house, Part 2.'

Some Clemson fans, including several athletes, reacted predictably, to which Winston responded, 'Tweeting two pictures makes me have a big head and no class...wow...But a stadium booing only one person is class.'

Later, Winston apologized, sort of, when he tweeted 'I apologize if I disrespected anyone that competed and sacrificed on those fields I posted...but if your (sic) a fan be a fan and enjoy the show.'

Unless the baseball Tigers and Seminoles meet again in the post-season, the next show will come next September when the football Tigers visit Doak Campbell Stadium.

As SB Nation noted, 'Jameis Winston spent his Saturday making this year's FSU-Clemson game an absolute must-watch.'

Barely escaping criminal charges in a sexual misconduct case would humble some people, others not so much.

When you win you can talk all the trash you want, you can rub it in the face, you can laugh all you want. Want to stop it? Then beat 'em.

Gotcher sarcasm.....that said....

Isn't it a sad state of affairs when that Drunk of Columbia makes it a habit to do the same thing. And the Drunk of Columbia is almost seventy years old!
The Drunk of Columbia debases the sport that has given him a life. He lowers the level of civility in the state, the country, and encourages the goofballs of society to emulate him. ........and they do.

You forgot to point out that he was the goat in Friday's game. Looked like a drunken pig in left field.

Goodness..do I detect a high level of admiration and envy? Sounds like it. Based on your posts, both currently and previously, you best hope you never play the "Drunk of Columbia" when he's sober. Can you imagine what he would do to you in a state of total sobriety? Totally agree with Clemvol...until then..button it and stop sniveling, whining, and making excuses.

I totally agree! He's beat us in football and baseball so that pretty much gives him all the bragging rights he wants! No need in getting angry with him about it because he owns us right now! Want to shut him up then beat him and stop that mouth, but if we don't we'll hear it again! Don't get mad, get even!

An article on James Winston results in you
slamming Steve Spurier. He must really be
in the heads of a lot of tigers.
One question, is " The Clock" in the
dressing room a Budweiser clock ?
