Lost Thought 00: degenerate-afro: regindyn: degenerate-afro: Let this be a lesson to all student athletes.  If you wish to profit off of your name, be white and affluent.do not go for material goods.  Cash is the only way to go.

No tattoos.  No cars.  No clothes or hats or shoes.  Straight Cash Homie.

FTFY

White and Affluent doesn't always work:


also


Meanwhile cash payments cannot be traced.

Well, there are no black coaches for the NCAA to suspend.


A&M head coach, Kevin Sumlin, would probably disagree with you.

As would all of the coaches in the SWAC and MEAC.  I'm sure there are some other big name program black coaches as well, but I don't follow it enough to name them.

shifty lookin bleeder: Marcus Aurelius: shifty lookin bleeder: Terrelle Pryor alone is going to cost them millions

Those were my first thoughts as well.  Terrelle, though, had already committed the sin of not playing in the SEC, so I'm not sure how that will affect his legal grounds.

And a mortal sin it was.  The football gods sent him to hell.


Worse: the RAIDERS.

/yes, that's the joke

netweavr: SilentStrider: This just in, the NCAA is a farking joke.

That's a blatant lie.


To the Romerocopter!

The GIS for Romerocoper (one word not two) is oddly fascinating.

Charlie Strong, James Franklin, etc.

personally i feel like there's different forces going on here: 1) Manziel should be punished for consistency, especially when the evidence (the number of items he signed and the frequency) seems to suggest payment for autographs, 2) student athletes should be paid money, eat dinners, etc. without repercussions as the NCAA makes money directly off the images of said student athletes anyways (this of course, as the NCAA backs out of video games), and 3) lawyer speak of course - but circumstantial evidence doesn't really hold up in court, so at some point the NCAA decided to simply roll over for this kid

either way the NCAA comes out looking like bags of shiat, no i don't think Dez Bryant or Terrelle Pryor should've been punished, but at the same time the zero-tolerance rule has always been asinine in my opinion for the same reason i don't think somebody who has a joint should be thrown in jail - it just leads to shadier shiat, and if the rule can't be enforced all the time anyways then it's ruining kids' lives for nothing

If I'm the Aggies (shudder), I'd have Ol' Johnny up on the concourse signing everything put in front of him for that entire half. I don't think the NC2A thought their cunning plan through very well. What do you suppose the crowd reaction is going to be when their Heisman trophy winner trots out onto the field in the second half?
 
2013-08-29 08:01:28 AM
I hope Manziel gets embarrassed at home this year by Alabama, and as a life long Tennessee fan, it takes a lot for me to say that

uncleacid: Now it's just Texas A no M.


I thought it was not Texas A to M.

The NCAA lost all credibility with Jeremy Bloom.

I don't know if Manziel took money for autographs; if he did, he's an idiot.

A plain reading of the rules, though, say that every student athlete should be suspended, since they are allowing their school and the NCAA to make money using their likeness, etc.

I hate pulling for this silver spoon brat, but fact is Louisville could really use some help with aTm beating Alabama. The schedule is light so some SEC losses by the big boys could do us some good.

Pj Hairston also proved that you are allowed to receive tens of thousands of dollars in rental cars as well... and there can even be evidence.

A guy I work with is a crazy libertarian and he heard about this story (he doesn't follow sports).

He was angry about the criminalization of making money and said Manziel has every right to make money.

Then he went off on a political rant and showed me a YouTube video of a journalist arguing with Nancy Pelosi about minimum wage. Can't wait til Friday.

He didn't get off because he was white.  If that was the case Cam Newton never would have played in that championship game.

He got off because the NCAA had no concrete evidence of cash changing hands.  No paper trail.  So if they suspended him without that, he would most likely be going to court.  And in court, the NCAA would get their ass handed to them, and most likely people would realize they have no real right to have as much authority as they do.  They would rather sweep thios under the rug to cover their own asses.

Shostie: Dancin_In_Anson: The best part of this game will be when the M.O.B takes the field.

That's probably the only part of any Rice football game worth watching.

Unless you're a fan of total failure.


Wrong.

The team is pretty good sometimes.  Even when they aren't, the conference games are usually interesting.  C-USA football is a lot of fun to watch, unless you're one of those casual fans who will only watch a game if both teams playing are ranked in the top ten.

The non-conference games are mostly there to bring in money to fund the rest of the season, of course.

What you need to do is root for UK to do well. As much as that kills you.

The NCAA has become such a joke. This just adds to it. Oregon has recruiting violations or something like that and they get a slap in the wrist, North Carolina has academic fraud for the football and perhaps the basketball team too and they decide that it did not violate NCAA rules. I could go on and on but you probably get the drift by now.

 Manziel family is wealthy.
 Manziel doesn't need the $$ but thought he was entitled.   He is also a huge moneymaker for the SEC and the Aggies.   So maybe he should be compensated.   But a one half suspension against the Owls is like a one half suspension against a Pop Warner team.  Now if this was a Mathlete competition......
 
2013-08-29 11:26:14 AM
Will he be suspended with or without pay?

justtray: Marcus Aurelius: This news retores my faith in the NCAA's hypocrisy levels.

This.

HaywoodJablonski: And thus ends my dwindling interest in college football. Adios.

And this.


Both of those.  Screw college football.  It's just a joke now.

mikaloyd: Its good to be in the SEC!


Unless you're a fan of UGA, who actually has a coach with some moral fiber. Moral fiber does not help you win, cheating does.  The rest of the SEC knows that, UGA obviously doesn't.

SubBass49: Wasn't it Cam Newton's DAD that did something wrong, and not Cam himself?


It looks to me like you're arguing that the NCAA didn't dig deeply enough to find the proof that Johnny Manziel took money, while at the same time arguing that they dug plenty deep in Cam's case.

SEC arrests: Missouri, Florida and Georgia lead conference in arrests over past three years.
