Oregon players to be disciplined for 'No means no' chant

Oregon will discipline the athletes involved in a post-Rose Bowl incident, during which a number of Ducks mocked Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston by singing "No means no" to the tune of the Seminoles' chant, Ducks Coach Mark Helfrich said Thursday night.

"We are aware of the inappropriate behavior in the postgame," Helfrich said in a statement to the Associated Press. "This is not what our program stands for, and the student-athletes will be disciplined internally."

Winston was not charged after a woman accused him of raping her in 2012, and Florida State recently cleared the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner of violating the student conduct code in relation to the alleged incident.

But that didn't prevent Oregon running back Kadi Benoit, linebacker Torrodney Prevot and others from having some fun at the Seminoles quarterback's expense following a 59-20 victory that sent the Ducks into the national title game against Ohio State.

A short video of the mocking chant was uploaded to Vine by Bear Heiser of Fox Sports West and the Bleacher Report.

Heiser showed a longer version of the video to AP, which reported that receiver Chance Allen was also among the players participating in the chant.
