    I haven't followed the boy personally. Like I said, I'm an Aggie, not a Johnny Football fan exclusively. I don't like what he's done to the University. I've admitted he probably did "something" wrong, so don't know what "blinders" I would have on. I just brought up the fact that he didn't get off just because he was white and wealthy. If he's a bad apple, then maybe the coach will handle him somewhere down the road this year. Sumlin really doesn't seem like a sellout. we'll see......

    I wouldn't depend on that. After his arrest and yearlong suspension by the university last year Sumlin wrote a letter on Johnny's behalf that got the suspension by A&M lifted.

    When I was 22 my fondest memory of College Station was seeing it in the rearview mirror.

    If he did something, the worst part is that it probably violated the Aggie code of honor. A&M has long held itself up as different from other institutions of higher learning. Supposedly the move to the SEC was a sign of a monumental change in the entire culture of the university. Too bad if that is true. There has always been a certain brotherhood to being an Aggie. If he got away with anything I think I can tell you why. Money. Not JM's family money but rather the money sold out games make for the school. Money made on TV ads for the school, for the conference, and for the NCAA. He is undeniably a huge draw and will fill stadiums all across the conference and if history repeats in whatever bowl the Ags get assigned (hope I didn't just jinx us). Too bad JM is probably a bit of a jackass. Would be a better story if he was the true blue son of A&M. Clear eyed, abstemious, and faithful as Old Yeller, but that only happens in the movies.

    It's true, we do have a code of "honor". It's actually in the TAMU student rule book. I believe he should receive some form of punishment, but the only people calling for bans are fans of Aggie opponents. Since he came up in this thread, I've read a little more about him. He does seem like a little punk IMO, but most kids are punks these days anyway. This incident makes me less of a Manziel fan, but not less of an Aggie fan.

    Excellent post. I thought if you did a little research you would understand my position. There is much more to the story than what you can google also.

    South Carolina sure looks like they haven't been doing much conditioning before the season.
