'Noles Football Alumni React to Florida State win over Pitt

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Former Seminoles had plenty to say about the Labor Day win versus Pittsburgh.

FSU came up big last night with an impressive win, beating the Pittsburgh Panthers 41-13. Much hyped Jameis Winston was absolutely superb in his debut. Nick O'Leary pulled in 3 TD's. The offense as a whole clicked. The new-look defense, after a slow start, appeared to be solid.

But let's get real, the night was owned by Winston. His name was all over Twitter. ESPN quickly put his name all over SportsCenter with headlines like "Win-ston" and "Famous Jameis." I paid particular attention to the Twitter reactions of a handful of former 'Noles football players. They had plenty to say about Winston, the win, and what they saw on field.

Former quarterback and now Buffalo Bills quarterback, E.J. Manuel was impressed by Winston's showing:

FSU great, Danny Kanell (who also had a spectacular debut game as a quarterback for the Seminoles in '93), also liked what he saw from Winston :

Current NFL free agent, Travis Johnson, quickly jumped on the Jameis train:


The always animated Lonnie Pryor, a former fullback for the 'Noles, had a list of entertaining tweets. Here were a couple of my favorites:

I, along with Pitt, would have to agree with Pryor's bit about Timmy Jernigan. But the tweet of the night goes to rookie Redskin running back, Chris Thompson. This one had me rolling:

I personally liked the neck roll on Chad Abram... made him look intimidating.

Anyhow, it's your turn. What is your reaction to the win last night?
