Notre Dame-Florida State Game in 2014 Dubbed 'Catholics vs. Criminoles' by Shirt

An unfortunate incident involving Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has allowed Notre Dame fans to come up with a nickname for this year's game between the Irish and Seminoles. is selling shirts that dub the game "Catholics vs. Criminoles":


Of course, the shirt references the citation that Winston received for allegedly stealing crab legs from a Florida supermarket. Ever since that incident, the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner has had to deal with plenty of crab jokes.

The shirt also plays on the "Catholics vs. Convicts" nickname that the 1988 Notre Dame-Miami game had.

Florida State and Notre Dame will face off in Tallahassee in October.
