    Is "I just overslept" the new "I just f#@*ing walked a guy"?

    Re: SEC Football Discussion Thread

    This is an example of why alot of college football fans hate the SEC and a perfect representation of the average Bama fan. At least this one has apparently set foot on a college campus (according to the article) though clearly it isn't one with a history department....

    "He's (Saban) a winner, he just does what he wants to do," says Lee Allen, an Alabama fan from Decatur. "He's kind of like Hitler. He's a dictator. He brought us back to the top and I figure we're going to be here for a while. Money well spent."

    I'd say the woman wanting to give him nesting dolls is 15-20% creepier than Hitler dude.

    Re: SEC Football Discussion Thread

    Johnny Football might have actually stepped in it this time....he's being investigated for signing autographs in what is being alleged was a five-figure deal.

    If you look at the penalties for Green at Georgia (sold a jersey for roughly $1000----4 games) and the whole OSU free tattoo thing (free tattoos-5 games), then JM might be looking at sitting out a season. He'll obviously practice (A&M gets underway tomorrow) but I don't think it's a certainty that he'll be eligible for the Bama game.

    Given the number of starters that A&M lost on both sides of the ball, they can not afford to lose JM for any significant time.

    If this is true, and considering he comes from a rich family and is less then a year from a big payday, he must be dumber then a box of rocks.

    Re: SEC Football Discussion Thread

    Jeeps, I'm already sick of hearing about Johnny Manziel. We think we know that the NCAA is investigating the possibility of an illegal benefit and the large amount of high quality Manziel autographed memorability that appeared on the market at the time of the alledged deal probably justifies the NCAA poking into it.

    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.

    Wait, shouldn't all of this be blamed on Sumlin for the culture he has created at Texas A&M?

    5 figures/the # of alledged items is large enough that you'd think some kind of paper trail could be reasonably followed.

    If the NCAA looks at phone records, texts, bank records, witness statements etc and can't find a single reason to suspect the allegations are true, then really it's reasonable to assume it didn't happen given the size of the special benefit alledged. That said, they may not get access to that kind of information in this investigation.

    Bama boosters in conjunction with Bama alumni in the media set Johnny Football up.

    I hate the NCAA.

    The value of Manziel is clear in the memorabilia and appearance market: Independent merchandiser Aggieland Outfitters recently auctioned off six helmets signed by Manziel and Texas A&M's other Heisman Trophy winner, John David Crow, for $81,000. Texas A&M's booster organization, the 12th Man Foundation, sold a table for six, where Manziel and Crow will sit at the team's Kickoff Dinner later this month, for $20,000.

    Manziel can't sell his autograph for 10 cents or he could be suspended.

    It really is time for all of this crap to end.

    A&M would be stupid not to be 8 steps ahead of the investigation.

    Yep.
    There is probably no sports organization more hypocritical than the NCAA.

    Apparently the mysterious chronic medical condition that caused Caleb Gulledge to be medically disqualified from Alabama and roused a tearful, anguished goodbye from Coach Saban this spring as Bama needed to reduce its roster from 97 to 85 has magically been cured. Go figure!
