09:58 AM ET 11.23 | As the state attorney's office weighs whether it believes it has sufficient evidence to bring criminal charges against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, the family of the woman who has accused him of sexually assaulting her in December 2012 issued a second statement Friday night, saying the woman was raped by the Heisman Trophy candidate. Responding to earlier claims by Winston's attorney that he had consensual sex with the woman, Patricia Carroll, the family's attorney, said in the statement: "To be clear, the victim did not consent. This was a rape." On Wednesday night, ESPN.com reported that a DNA analysis completed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement confirmed that DNA provided by Winston matched the sample taken from the underwear of the woman. According to the DNA analysis report, a copy of which was viewed by ESPN.com on Wednesday, the Florida state crime lab determined the chance of the DNA in the woman's underwear being a match for someone other than Winston was one in 2.2 trillion.

Well it's looking more and more like the #2 QB needs some serious game experience ... and what a perfect opportunity today is considering the opponent is Idaho. Winston should start and engineer the first scoring drive, then let the backup have the rest of the game.

I said this yesterday: ""The 'consent defense' is too little too late and clearly reactive damage control by Jansen after learning the DNA matched his client,". Why didn't Winston say it was "consensual sex" last year when the women filed her complaint???

Nothing will be done until after the bowl season is completed. That is just how justice works at these "football is religion" schools in the south.

You're probably right, but IMO it's best to get this mess straighten out before the bowl games.

You really don't get the concept of a cover up do you

Heisman probably gone no matter what the timing. Can't vote for a potential rape offender.

I'm with 22-0 though, sad over the whole thing. Nothing good about this in any direction.

Yes but at the same time I'm tired of something like this happening every year. Athletes need to understand they're not above the rules or the laws no matter how they were treated growing up.

got to say it twice...

and this is suppose to be happening at FSU's game today:

The game today:

another group is planning on chanting the accusers name

McCarron may be the Heisman winner by default. Not sure if the Downtown Athletic Club wants the tarnish of Manziel's off season antics either.

I think he will be charged as well...

I think the SA Meggswill leave it up to the jury... If he lets it go, most will think he is part of the coverup..

He wont be running for SA at next election... But his Son will..

So either way his son future is impacted...

How about this scenario.

Baylor wins out with impressive performances by Petty and the Bears have a second Heisman in the last three years?

That's 'classy' - huh? Not surprised seeing where society is heading these days.

Like Dr BfG said, "Athletes need to understand they're not above the rules or the laws no matter how they were treated growing up."

Of course that WON'T happen. :-/
