Oregon players mock FSU QB Jameis Winston, chant ‘No means no!’
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Several Oregon players are facing team discipline after celebrating their Rose Bowl win by mocking Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and allegations of sexual assault that have followed the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner the past two years.
Video taken from the field as Oregon celebrated its 59-20 win in the College Football Playoff semifinal showed at least three players chanting “No means no!” to the tune of a chant used by Florida State fans.
The short video, uploaded to Vine by Bear Heiser of Fox Sports West, quickly drew strong reactions on social networks.
The video shows running back Kadi Benoit, linebacker Torrodney Prevot and a third player wearing a “WON NOT DONE” shirt participating in the chant.
Oregon coach Mark Helfrich said in a statement that the behavior was inappropriate and the players will be disciplined internally.
Winston was never charged after a woman accused him of raping her in 2012.
