Jameis Winston refers to Auburn co-offensive coordinator Dameyune Craig as "Uncle Craig."
    
The relationship between the two is the reason the Heisman winner signed with Florida State. Craig was Winston's recruiter at Florida State before he took the Auburn job. The two will be on opposite sidelines during the BCS championship Monday.
    
This moment almost never happened as coach Jimbo Fisher was wary of recruiting the star quarterback out of Alabama - home ground of Nick Saban. Oh, and mom was an Auburn fan.
    
Craig said he was the only one on staff who believed Florida State could get Winston. Seminoles fans will forever be appreciative of Craig's determination, especially if Florida State wins the third national championship in school history.
