Florida State's athletic department has issued a cease and desist letter to a fan selling T-shirts depicting redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston as Jesus Christ, according to TMZ.

The fan told TMZ that 100 of the "Chosen One" shirts were sold for $20 each last weekend. The school is looking to avoid any potential NCAA issue by putting an end to the sale of Winston's likeness. It is not an uncommon occurrence for schools, particularly one with the visibility of Florida State, to deal with such issues. The comparison to Jesus is what has raised the interest of TMZ and others.
