So he used a certain 2013 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback.
The meme is a take-off on Jameis Winston's postgame comments after Florida State won the BCS Championship Game over Auburn. Winston hit Kelvin Benjamin for the game-winning touchdown and following the game he detailed what he said to his teammates in the fourth quarter.
"I said guys, we didn't come here for no reason,” Winston said. “I said, 'Guys, this is ours, man.' All the adversity we went through the first few quarters, it was ours to take. And like I've been saying, we control our own destiny, And those men looked me in my eye and said 'We got this Jameis.' I said, 'Are you strong?' They said, ‘I'm strong if you strong.’ I said, 'We strong then.'"
Those were also the same comments that caused Dee Dee Bonner, the mother of former Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, to ask if Winston was speaking English.
Winston's comments helped work in Pasadena, Calif. Does a variation of them help for finals in South Bend, Ind.? Nix will find out.
