I vote for waiting for more facts rather than filling in the void with supposition. It could get interesting is this lingers into the last week of the August as A&M will need to make a decision about whether to play JM once the season begins or to sit him. Maybe the number of reps he gets in practice will be a tell? This will be an interesting issue if the NCAA doesn't make some type of decision during practice this month.
Circumstantial evidence won't get it done. Someone would have to step forward and testify or offer some kind of proof. It won't be the slimey sports memorabilia guy unless he is saving his ass for some other reason. It would have to be someone from Johnny's entourage or someone he bragged to. Unlikely the NCAA will find the proof they need - which doesn't mean it didn't happen.
