Tuesday morning, Sports Illustrated unveiled four regional covers for its College Football Playoff edition that will be distributed this upcoming week. It didn't take long for Florida State Seminoles fans to notice one major difference between their version and the other three.

The magazine ran features on the four quarterbacks in the competition - Oregon's Marcus Mariota, Alabama's Blake Sims, Ohio State's Cardale Jones, and of course, Florida State's Jameis Winston. Winston, however, was the only player not listed by name on his cover.

Sure, you could assume that SI printing "The Case For Jameis Winston" might have been a bit foolish, considering the Heisman Trophy winner's code of conduct hearing took place this month. But that hasn't stopped FSU fans from criticizing the publication on Twitter. Check it out:

What do you think? Do FSU fans have legitimate beef? Or is Sports Illustrated justified in its decision?
