Jameis Winston Is Still Talking Texas, Says He'd Follow Jimbo Fisher To Austin

Mack Brown failure.

Florida State's Heisman-winning quarterback Jameis Winston may have wound up a Seminole, but he's making it known that he wanted to be a Texas Longhorn. Winston, speaking at today's press conference ahead of the BCS National Championship Game, said that his high school coach tried to contact head coach Mack Brown and UT multiple times - he said he even tried to give them a ring himself. The Longhorns did not return any of their calls.

This isn't the first time that Winston has mentionedhis original desire to play for the Longhorns - he's clearly still not thrilled with being overlooked. 

Winston also proclaimed that should FSU coach Jimbo Fisher leave the Seminoles for Texas, he'd want to tag along.

A Heisman-trophy winning quarterback potentially transferring to the school that snubbed him in high school? That'd be a new one.
