Finebaum Misrepresents Bowden's comment

Paul Finebaum misrepresented Bobby Bowden's comment on Jameis Winston by leaving out a very important part of the quote.

Paul Finebaum misrepresented the original comment that sent the college football nation into a frenzy with this tweet.

The full quote is here

"Well, I think it's a consensus among Florid State fans, and boosters that he was an embarrassment in a lot of ways to the university," Bowden said. "He won a lot of ball games, probably one of the best football players that ever attended Florida State, but he hurt himself off the field. The good news is that he's young enough to get over that, ya know it, and he's gotta do that. He just can't make those junior high school decisions that he made while he was in college."

The key part of this is that Finebaum did not include the caveat "in a lot of ways" in his tweet. Without it the comment doesn't seem nearly as bad as Finebaum made it seem. While many Seminoles fans will still likely take issue with the comment, it's not far-fetched to think that some Seminole fans were embarrassed by some of the actions taken by Jameis Winston.
