TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - It was nothing but miscommunication that led to Jameis Winston to initially dress up in full pads for Florida State's Saturday night game against Clemson, head coach Jimbo Fisher explained Monday.
"That was a miscommunication between us and the locker room", Fisher said. "With the late night suspension, he was scheduled to dress the next day and the stuff was put out in the locker when he went in to dress, he assumed he was going to dress and warm up and he went out and I never saw it, it got miscommunicated (sic).
"From our part we never should have had the things in the locker and that’s exactly what happened with that. We saw it, corrected it. He was great about it, came back out and did what he was asked to do. That was our fault internally for communication and we were making adjustments and moving around and that one that slipped through the cracks and getting that information down to the locker room, equipment staff of not putting his uniform in."
