Oh wait they dont.
Johnny Football suspended...
...for the first half against Rice. What a joke.
Will Rice's band be at that game?
Hahahaha.. what a pathetic joke that is.
So the ncaa says no proof, but they suspend him anyways? WTF
Oh man, how will they ever recover. What a joke.
I was confused on that too. Did A&M suspend him?
They came to an agreement apparently. The NCAA acknowledges that he didn't accept money. W...T...F
NCAA cannot prove Manziel accepted money, but he did break the rule that states he has to try and prevent the sale of merchandise with his signature/likeness on it.
I hate the NCAA so much.
NCAA and SEC have a different definition on accepting money than everyone else. When you have Cam Newton setting the case law there is really nothing left.
Manziel was guility of using his name for commerical uses.
A thought just occurred to me... On ESPN commercials they will say "Can the Oklahoma Sooners stop the amazing Johnny Manziel", isn't that selling Manziels name for viewership?
I don't have much doubt he took money. Since when does the NCAA investigate this quickly, usually takes their ass forever? If he played at CU, they would have suspended him for the year. ****ing joke lol.
I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.
Wow, you don't get it, do you? YES, of course it is (selling his name). That's what the NCAA wants - the sole rights to make money off of the college athletes' names while they're in school.
I'm not an NCAA fan, but I also don't feel sorry for the moronic athletes who knowingly break the rules, no matter how stupid they are. Let the courts or some crappy marginal player be the test dummy and just play and enjoy your free education at this point. I'm typing this as I'm looking at a student loan payment, so I'm a bit pissy regarding this stuff right now.
Manziel is a moron and a colossal distraction. Lazy journos love him.
Good thing we banned Jeremy Bloom from football for accepting sponsorship money in an unrelated sport.
I'm glad he's playing. 'Bama and LSU have scheduled bye weeks prior to the aTm game.
No surprise here. But what about the SEC schools that allegedly offered Ricky Jones 600k ? Linky 4 U
Geez it's really not that far fetched IMHO.
ATM lawyers at work. Suppress the brokers with a threat.
That's allsome. I wonder if I can sue my car manufacturer next time I get a speeding ticket. They were responsible for building an engine that makes the car break the law.
Introductions are in order. Slap, meet Wrist. Wrist, this is Slap.
Nobody banned Jeremy Bloom.
Effectively they did. They gave him a choice, which wasn't really much of a choice. Turns out he would have been better off doing whatever he wanted to, and putting the earnings into a trust so he cold claim he wasn't receiving any benefit.
