Manziel Gets Half Game Suspension — Aggies Everywhere Dancing in the Streets

This just in: it’s been announced that Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel will be suspended for half a game in the season opener on Saturday against Rice University. The case will also be closed from this point on, according to reports. This means the season is no longer in doubt. He will be able to play the rest of the season. Las Vegas will be taking bets on A&M’s season once again. (Not that I’m a betting man!).

ESPN reports:

Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel of No. 7 Texas A&M has been suspended for the first half of Saturday’s season opener against the Rice Owls, a source told ESPN’s Brett McMurphy on Wednesday afternoon.

The agreement between the NCAA and Texas A&M closes the book on Manziel’s recent issues, a source told McMurphy.

Some might ask if this is fair? My father, a diehard University of Houston Cougar fan noted: “If this happened to us, they would have banned us from bowl games for four years.”

So is it fair?

Allow me to say, “I don’t care if its fair!” I’m glad Manziel will be able to play. Maybe, just maybe, he has learned his lesson and won’t mess up again until after he has entered the NFL draft.
