If Johnny gets drafted , I wonder if his dad is going to want to go to all the practices and handle all of his affairs ?
I wish my mom and dad were like that back in the day. LOL

Sure, I am open to the possibility that Mack was just being Mack, however maybe Manziel's reputation and issues played into the decision to not touch him.
Yep,

Mack has done a wonderful job recruiting QB's

It's why A&M has pased UT in the recruiting game.

Mack never recruits problem guys, Kindle/Benson, that Wells/Jones guys that got kicked out of school for robbing a convience store.

Mack would have passed on a heisman trophy winning QB because he parties too much, like Simms/Applewhite/VY didn't put in their time on 6th street.

So his father worrying that he's going to "come unraveled" and that he'll end up viewing jail-time as preferable to the current circumstances makes you think he's not bothered by the attention he's getting?

His fathers statements tell me he wishes he never would've gone to A&M. Sorry Aggie fans

His fathers statements show he didn't show his son how to grow up and be a man. He's a whiny b*tch who looks for the spotlight by granting these interviews and then complains about all the attention and scrutiny. How does a father who is worried about his son drinking proceed to buy him beer?

With the way Mack brown has show to coddle his players maybe you are right that he'd do better in Austin. Then he'd meltdown as a pro with no chance of redemption instead of learning to grow up in college.

Agreed,

If he wins all of this will be a moot point.

Nobody seems to be able to answer

A. What JM is doing differently this offseason from last offseason, and all he did was win a Heisman?
B. Who is he really harming?

Default Great article on Johnny Manziel, guy will go pro next year.

After reading this article I am convinced that there is no way he returns to A&M after next season. Best article I have read in a long while.

At this rate, chances are he'll win a six pack of natty.

That's the article I'm talking about. His dad comes off as a whiny b*tch.

The SI article in this week's issue is very good.

If there is no contract and the NCAA can't produce a copy of a check then I doubt you'll see anything come from this. They have to prove money changed hands.

They would need to produce pictures of a contract, and check or the broker handing Manziel money. Pictures of him signing autographs isn't enough. Since this investigation has been going on since June I doubt those things exist.

Default Re: Manziel

That sucks for manziel. NCAA has been known to make some questionable decisions:

Quote:
"My hard evidence and common sense and logic from 30-plus years of practice tells me (the NCAA's decision) is not supported by sound, reliable information and documentation," he said. "We were able to document that all these players had worked the hours that they had said. Even if we were to concede where there might be holes, less than five hours are in dispute. That takes them under 100 bucks. In DeVier Posey's situation, (the NCAA) just absolutely disregarded evidence that any person with common sense would accept. Why they did it, I do not know."
http://m.espn.go.com/ncf/story?story...25&src=desktop

Doesn't seem like they are 100% forthcoming with exactly why and what goes into their decisions. Or maybe they are and posey's lawyer just doing his lawyer thing.

The broker in question could always sell Manziel out too. If he hasn't done it by now though I doubt that's gonna happen. Money does talk though so if a booster from another rival school chucks a little change his way he could possibly sing like a bird.

If the broker sells out Manziel and he becomes ineligible,then his "investment" goes to crap. That's why I find it hard to believe that someone would be so brazen as to do this in public view.
