Publix Accused Of Giving Free Food To FSU Players

A few Tweets have changed the conversation entirely.

Have we all been reading the Jameis Winston situation wrong?

ESPN's Marcellus Winston thinks the Publix has been giving food to FSU football players for years and that Winston just copped a plea to spare everyone else.

We're being a bit liberal in how we use cop a plea, but you get the idea.

After his tweet, Omar Kelly, a South Florida reporter who covers the NFL said it has been going on for decades.

With the NCAA now reluctant to assert itself it doesn't much matter anymore, and with the new policy on food it may not matter. But if these guys are right, it says a lot about the program and how it's been run, and the willingness of Florida State to obey rules it's agreed to obey.
