Oregon Players to Be Disciplined After Singing 'No Means No' to FSU Warchant – Bleacher Report
Florida State’s “warchant” is ubiquitous.
The Seminoles’ chant is played after touchdowns, during timeouts and, for reasons that remain their own, after their opponents’ longest plays.
Any team facing Florida State hears the warchant on loop, and Oregon players appeared to have the tune lodged in their collective consciousness after their 59-20 stomping of the undefeated Seminoles at the Rose Bowl on Thursday.
Several Oregon players are now facing internal disciplinary measures for remixing the chant with a “no means no” homage to FSU quarterback Jameis Winston’s prior sexual assault allegations.
Here’s a Vine of the chant, uploaded by Bleacher Report’s Bear Heiser:
According to ESPN.com, Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich plans to reprimand the players involved in the postgame chant. Per the article, “Sophomore linebacker Torrodney Prevot and redshirt freshman Kani Benoit are both visible doing the chant, along with a third player who is wearing a “WON NOT DONE” T-shirt over his game jersey.”
“We are aware of inappropriate behavior in the postgame,” Helfrich said. “This is not what our program stands for, and the student-athletes will be disciplined internally.”
Oregon will face the Ohio State Buckeyes—who upset Alabama 42-35 in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday—in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday, Jan. 12.
