    Wasn't it only 1 jersey or something like that too? The problem with this case is that the media is against every NCAA investigation now, so I wouldn't doubt that he'll get away with it.

    My favorite bit from the ESPN story was that Manziel has a "personal assistant." A college football player with a "personal assistant." Seriously?

    A&M can make money off Johnny Football but Johnny Football can't make money off of Johnny Football



    Remind me again why we need the NCAA?

    In college, I knew a kid in the b-school who had a personal assistant. My buddy had a group project with him and they had to call his personal assistant to set up meetings. He thought he was a consultant or something. That was some bs. I would imagine Johnny, as a Heisman trophy winner who's not handling his fame very well, at a weird place like A&M, he probably does have a legitimate case for a personal assistant.

    He must figure, "Awe, what the hell. I'll just enter the draft next year. Meanwhile, I can do football tricks for NBA halftime shows."

    his personal assistant is one of his home boys who dropped out of college to help Johnny stay in school.

    Go figure.

    Watching A&M get something nice is like watching a borderline alcoholic redneck win the lotto.

    If true, his Collage football career is done. aTM will lose a huge revenue source at the same time. I read a recent article that Johnny footballs dad was very worried about his off field behavior.

    I expect A&M to take a page out of the Cam Newton playbook.
    1) JFF and A&M refuse to talk
    2) JFF plays in every game
    3) NCAA wheels of justice grind slowly (for many reasons, including that they (NCAA) benefit if they grind slowly)
    4) Years from now, his eligibility for the 2013 season will be meaningless
    5) Everybody profits!

    Can I convince you to expand on the topic of "grind slowly"?

    1) Go to YouTube
    2) Search using the phrase "grind slowly"
    3) Filter results to exclude videos posted by "Tini's Mom" (your call if you want to filter to include recent videos posted by "Flounder," but my guess is that those are going to be a bit blurry from the 140 degree heat reflecting off of the sand)
    4) Profit!

    Robert Downey, Jr. was in a lot of movies as a kid.

    He was a douchebag asshole in Weird Science.

    He was the crazy goofy friend in Back to School.

    And here he is in Johnny Be Good.
