By now, you’ve probably heard the ludicrous news of the day to come out of Indianapolis. Johnny “Football Autograph” Manziel has been put in time-out by the NCAA and will be forced to sit out the first half of Texas A&M’s home opener this weekend against Rice. 30 minutes for some unauthorized signatures that Manziel strongly denies getting paid for. I could write 500 words here, I could write a million, neither would be enough to explain the gross negligence on the part of the NCAA as a governing body in regards to how they’ve handled this case in its entirety. But hey, it’s not good business to fire one of your most productive ($$$$$) FREE INTERNS either.
Former FSU great and current ESPN analyst Danny Kanell put it best:
And a reminder for Mr. Manziel on Saturday: Have an extra glass of juice with breakfast, the orange slices are for the players!
