07:26 AM ET 11.14 | To this point of the season, FSU quarterback Jameis Winston's star had only been on the rise -- until now. [Winston] is being investigated in a sexual-battery case filed with Tallahassee police in December 2012. No charges have been filed against Winston, and the investigation remains active. An attorney representing Winston denied the allegation. The complaint was filed Dec. 7, 2012, according to TPD reports. ... Tallahassee attorney Tim Jansen confirmed he is representing Winston. "This case has been going on for over a year. The case was basically closed and we're not sure why it's opened up," Jansen said. "We've been cooperating with the law enforcement agencies and we're hoping to get a quick resolution in favor of Mr. Winston."

If you say so bro, but let me tell you TMZ won't give up and inquiring minds want to know all the details.

Uh....ever hear the word "reopen"?

I'm scratching my head why a complaint from last December is finally getting traction. Did the results finally come back from the DNA lab? Or is this something brought out in order to facilitate a potential civil litigation against Winston?

Johnny footballs parents paid the media to kick up some dirt on the current front runner for the Heisman.

Even though I doubt Van was being serious about this, his family has been known to do just such over the years. Wouldn't be a new tactic for the Manziel clan.

Good questions SS.

There is obviously more to all of this than what is in the police report that was made public. This is a matter that is not going to go away and could become a major distraction to FSU football and derail this kids Heisman hopes.

FSU, ahhhh, at least Florida has a college football team.

Suppose that he's convicted of the crime. Everyone who thinks that FSU will be required to void any victories in games that he played, pay $60 million to a fund for victims of sexual violence, be prohibited from playing in bowl games for four years, and have the number of scholarships reduced, raise your hands. To all who raised your hands -- I have some prime swampland in Florida that I'd like to sell you.

Was the alleged victim underage?....did it take place in the showers for a number of years?...did the head coach, and others, know about it, report to the Higher Ups and then ignore it?
