The refs were watching him all game long for something to flag. In the first half after a score he ran down with other players on the sideline and jump-bumped the player who scored and the ref grabbed him and told him to back to the sideline. Just him, even though there were many others there also.
Espn is trying to make everything manziel does villianous when it steps away from what thy want to see, which is him completely humbled and not doing anything special. Hell, Paul finebaum said today that respecting the opponent and not talking trash is "sacrosanct" in college football. Gimme a damn break.
Take manziel's name off the jersey and put it on any other player and he does the same thing and there would be no story or mention about it anywhere. Manziel is now public enemy #1 And they will bash him if he sneezes without a tissue.
Sumlin didn't seem thrilled at all with what manziel did.
Maybe he hates him too.
