The Florida State Seminoles have been very quietly recently when it comes to Jameis Winston and the Title IV investigation.

On Friday, the school sent out a letter explaining why they were quiet and detailing the events via a timeline.

You can read their letter below:

"NOTE TO MEDIA: The following letter was sent to members of the Florida State University community Friday, Oct. 10, 2014.An open letter to the Florida State University community:In the face of misinformation in the media during the past 10 months, Florida State University has maintained a deliberate silence about how we have handled the sexual assault allegation made against a prominent athlete. The University has remained silent for one reason: To protect our students, who are after all our highest priority.But as we expect other stories to appear, it is abundantly clear that the continual drumbeat of misinformation about the University’s actions causes harm to our students, faculty, alumni, supporters and the FSU community as a whole. Because of this, and within the constraints of state and federal privacy laws, we want to share with you more detail to set the record straight."
