After Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was suspended for the first half of Saturday's game against the Clemson Tigers, sophomore Sean Maguire found out that he'll be getting his first career start in a prime-time conference showdown.
Sadly, it doesn't look like his parents are going to be there to see it.
Sean Maguire said his parents aren't coming to this week's game because they gave tickets away to relatives. Said it's probably for the best

Maguire has thrown 26 career passes with 16 completions for 144 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions for the Seminoles — but never in a big game situation like this.
When you have a quarterback like Winston — who seems to find trouble at every turn — Maguire's parents should have known a quarterback benching is just a table shout away.
Something tells me mom and pop will somehow find a way to see their son play the first half from the stands.
