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.

Fox Sports reports the University of Florida Public Safety account on Twitter retweeted a photo from the Pokémon Go account, which showed an image of crabs, with the caption, “Can anyone confirm if this location is at #FSU football locker room?” The tweet is in reference to a 2014 incident, when Winston was caught on camera walking out of a Tallahassee-area Publix with a package of crab legs.

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.
