The Seminole baseball team played a three-game series in Clemson earlier this year, and Jameis Winston – an outfielder and pitcher on that team - tweeted a photo of Clemson's Memorial Stadium, captioning it with "our house."

took notice, and called out Winston Tuesday in the WestZone, saying the Florida St. signal caller was being "disrespectful to the Clemson program".

Winston was asked about Jarrett's quote on Wednesday.

"That was just me having fun with my baseball teammates," Winston said. "I actually was playing baseball at Clemson, so that was a joke inside us. The next day I went out to eat with Chad KellyChad Kelly

, the Clemson quarterback at the time. I have some friends on the Clemson football team. That was a joke in between us players, but some things get blown out of proportion and make it seem like a bigger deal than what it was. It's actually a competitive atmosphere. That's what you want, man. We need more football players that want to compete. If Clemson isn't going to come here and compete, we're not going to play them. If we don't go out and compete, there's no reason for Clemson to want to play us. It's all a competitive atmosphere. What I did yesterday, that was a selfish act. But that was about competitiveness, because I'm a football player and I compete."
