    Any chance these 3 guys miss some games in 2013? We already know Manziel is in hot water, but what about the other 2 high profile players?

    FTR: I personally think it's insane a player can't sell their autograph or pictures or anything of theirs. I think Manziel is a little diva like Vince Young was, but being suspended for selling memorabilia? Retarded.

    The NCAA is a ****ing joke. Always has been and always will. Just a money hungry organization, I am kind of hoping that they get the **** sued out of them in the anti-trust lawsuit over the video games.

    This is the same as the Ohio state suspensions and **** storm a few years ago. The players were giving away/trading away their jerseys and some jewelry given to them by Ohio state for tattoos. I think one of them was the golden knecklace with the pants pendant given to them for "beating the pants off of Michigan". If I give you something, its yours. You can do what ever you want with it. If I give JCB a TV and he sells it, there is nothing I can do. I gave it to him.

    Who gives a **** if Manziel is selling autographs, more power to him. If people are dumb enough to pay that much money for someone's signature, you can't blame the dude for making some bank off of it. **** the NCAA.

    South Park nailed it.



    **EDIT**

    this one has more of the conversation if you can stand the quality.

    I don't agree with what the NCAA is doing, but I bet Manziel does not get drafted. Has Ryan Leaf/Vince Young/ and the Keebler Elf written all over him.

    I am with everybody else that Mannzy is just a kid that has a huge head now and acts like a little girl, but this is just a case of the NCAA being mad because they didn't make that money.

    They make money off their jerseys.

    They need to STFU.

    Yea he's definitely a bit divaish. I pray if Jake Locker doesn't work out, that we wont be dumb enough to draft Manziel.

    Manziel is just trying to fit in with the SEC.


    A&M was going to get the boot if they played well without committing any violations.

    The NCAA is all kinds of backwards. Their mission statement says they are a non-profit corporation, but that same statement later says "Creating incremental revenues through a sponsorship and licensing program that advance college football".

    Non-profit, but they want to turn a profit? Ok?
