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.
    The August issue of Texas Monthly actually has two articles that deal with this directly, including a pretty extensive bio of JM.

    i have given johnny a little grief here. but i wish to be serious for a rare moment and say this. it is Biblical that, "of whom much is given much is expected." it is true that Texas A&M has an "exceptional and ideal honor code". but johnny is just a 20 or 21 year old kid. just because he is the greatest, most awe inspiring athlete of last years' college football season, we should not expect him to be a perfect person. he is just a kid!

    i have a 21 year old son. to me he is truely gifted and special. like his dad his gifts are not those of an elite athlete. he makes many of the same poor decisions i did at his age. he will be a great man someday. i shudder to think what mischief he would get into if he had the opportunity johnny has been given because of his athletic gifts.

    is johnny living it up, yes! is johnny taking advantage of his special gifts, obviously! we should allow him this fun. we should have fun with it too. he is special and he may well wind up to be just like Coach Stallings and make every Aggie proud every day! we don't know yet.

    johnny football is still the fastest, slipperiest "white boy"........oops, i meant to say "person who in our post racial society it is not necessary to mention the color of", i have ever seen!

    Yeah, speaking of "in our post racial society it is not necessary to mention the color of," or mascot of, or fight song of - how 'bout them Rebel Black Bears/Black Land Sharks/Rogue Recruiting Operatives or whatever they be calling themselves today in Oxford? They can call themselves 1-0 with some conviction today but let's see how far it goes. Vandy's Vandy, I don't care if they've got Admiral David Farragut or James Franklin as coach.

    Boise State over Washington Huskies in a late second squeaker

    TCU gets a homer call in Texas Stadium and gives Jacob and Franco some minor heartburn, but somehow Les pulls another one out of his rear end with a defensive score

    Johnny Football comes in after halftime and all is forgiven

    Texas beats New Mexico but Mack refuses to run up the score and cover the spread, but gives the same standard response after the game about what a fine opponent they were and they played hard, but the Horns have lots to work on

    The Huskies are entering a newly remodeled stadium - played at Qwest Field last year. They have some talent & KP is healthy, at least for now. Home field is worth something & BSU barely beat the Huskies in their bowl last year.

    Is there a point spread? as I have a gut feeling you are pulling a Franco .
