Ramsey: No subject is off limits when it comes to trash talk
All’s fair in love and war, especially when the battle takes place on a football field. That’s according to Florida State star cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who said when he’s talking trash no subject is off limits.
In a recent article by ESPN, Ramsey is asked if there is any subject he won’t talk about during a game, and the USA Today All-American corner just stared and shook his head.
Ramsey went on to say that anything from girlfriends to moms are fair game, and when asked if there was anything he said that he wished he could take back the all-ACC preseason selection simply said, “nope.”
So who’s best at returning fire? Ramsey said when it comes to trash talk he has no equal.
"Who was pretty decent at giving trash talk back?,” Ramsey asked himself. "... Nobody. When you're winning they can't say anything back."
FSU coach Jimbo Fisher was not surprised by his answer.
"Jalen don't give anybody credit," Fisher told ESPN. "I'm telling you now. He's hardcore."
The junior DB said that if he can get his opponent to quiet down he know's it's game, set, match.
"… Once they're talking back and then they slowly start to not talk back, it lets me know 'OK I got him now.”Ramsey, who has starred at corner and safety for the Seminoles said he loves the game of football and that talking trash just comes with the territory.

"When I'm out on the field, that's what I love to do," Ramsey said. "That is literally my passion, so I just let it all go."
