University of Florida makes Jameis Winston joke from Pokemon Go tweet


Pokémon Go is all anyone can talk about, and the craze also allows for yet another jab by a college rival at Jameis Winston, the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback at Florida State.

Neither Florida State nor Jameis Winston has responded to the tweet, but the real question was whether or not Krabby, the Pokémon featured in the original image, was caught by the trainer.
