    Re: Johnny Manziel suspended for half

    As a college football fan who wants to see him play, I like it.

    I honestly could care less if he signed autographs for money. He won the freakin heisman he can do what he wants.

    I didn't know you could have a punishment that was less than a slap on the wrist.

    Re: Johnny Manziel suspended for half

    Seriously.... this is dumb. From what I can tell they are saying he didn't get any money for autographs. But, he apparently did something or there wouldn't be any suspension. Yet they are not saying what he did other than take money unless I missed it?

    Re: Johnny Manziel suspended for half

    I don't get this. The only thing that he's been accused of in this autograph deal is not something that he should be suspended for a half. If they do that believe he did anything wrong, then don't suspend him. If he did something wrong, then just suspending him a half is about 11-1/2 games too few.

    Re: Johnny Manziel suspended for half

    So if a player leads with his helmet if the field he basically gets a 1 game suspension, if they jeopardize their armature status they get 2 quarters. Makes perfect sense!

    Re: Johnny Manziel suspended for half

    I'm stealing this one from Twitter, but I think making him play the full game against Rice would be a stiffer penalty.

    Re: Johnny Manziel suspended for half

    I would rather have had the NCAA say they can't prove anything and he gets nothing than a joke of a punishment half game suspension.

    you are trying to find logic in a NCAA ruling/punishment. Don't waste you time, it doesn't exist.

    Re: Johnny Manziel suspended for half

    Yeah normally he would play the first half against rice and then sit the second. Now he has to sit the first half and not the second. The only thing they did was switch the half he is going to play


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Well, the tv ratings of the second half of the A&M/Rice game just got a boost. So there's that.

    Re: Johnny Manziel suspended for half

    I am glad he is able to play - he deserves to.

    However, if this were an Iowa State player, Randy Peterson would say there's a chance Iowa State University gets shut down.
