Late last night ESPN reported that Jameis Winston's DNA matched the samples taken from the woman who has alleged he raped her. In conjunction with a detailed statement from the woman's attorney -- which I'd encourage you to read here -- we can now feel relatively confident that we know her side of the story. Winston, aside from a reported two affidavits filed by "witnesses" on his behalf, has not told his side of the story. Although at a press conference this morning Winston's attorney continued to maintain that Winston is innocent of any crime.
So what now?
Let's dive in and look at what we know.
1. On the early morning of Dec. 7, Jameis Winston and the alleged victim in this case had some sort of sexual encounter.
The DNA evidence on her clothing connects to Jameis Winston to a specific degree. How specific? According to ESPN's report there's a 1 in 2.2 trillion chance it isn't his DNA. (There are only seven billion people on earth).
So what happened during this sexual encounter?
She claims he raped her and Winston hasn't told his side of the story yet, having declined to speak with authorities. Based on the DNA connection, Winston's only defense now is that the sex was consensual.
So now we have a he said, she said dispute over a sexual encounter.
So who do we believe?
And who makes the decision about who to believe? Read on.
There are only three weeks left in the college football season.
And there are still seven teams alive for a shot at the BCS title.
Which seven teams and what do they need to do to advance to the BCS title?
Let's dive in and see.
Here we go.
This is what happens when you're a good team in the ACC, you get so bored with the conference competition that two members of your starting secondary, P.J. Williams and Terrence Brooks, are playing hangman on the sideline during the 4th quarter.
This week against Idaho they might be able to play hangman between plays with dry erase boards on the actual field.
That's because there is no real threat to the Seminoles this coming weekend.
Next weekend, however, I have a feeling the Gators will play them much better.
At least defensively, any way.
But let's not kid ourselves, Florida State isn't losing on the field.
The biggest challenge left for the 2013 Seminoles isn't even on the field, it's the sexual assault investigation into Jameis Winston.
