Deadspin nailed it in calling out Jen Floyd Engel of Fox Sports, who compared Johhny shiatbag to Rosa Parks after calling Terrell Pryor a "terrorist who deserved Goodell penalizing him.

Rich white kid taking cash -- a-okay.  Black kid getting free tats -- drop the hammer.

What a joke.

White like Cam Newton & Reggie Bush?

Yeah, I don't think this is a racial thing, or even the NCAA showing deliberate favoritism, it's the NCAA being worried because certain power conferences have gotten so powerful that the NCAA is worried about keeping the reigns on them and is therefore willing to look the other way more than they should.

The NCAA is non-profit and mainly concerned with managing the nuts and bolts of collegiate athletics.  It doesn't matter to them at the end of the day if the national champs are A&M, Alabama, Oregon, or Duke.

Granted, being non-profit doesn't mean that NCAA employees aren't concerned with keeping their jobs, and they realize that they'd become much less relevant, and likely have to cut staff and compensation, if the big FBS conferences decided to form their own association free of NCAA oversight.  They're already halfway there in football as the BCS series isn't an NCAA run championship.

If Manziel was black the decision would have been the same, it was based on preserving relationships with a big name school more than anything else.  It's fair to criticize the NCAA on their lopsided and erratic enforcement of the rules, but blaming it on race is off the mark.  The NCAA is being extorted by the SEC, Big 12, Big 10, PAC, and to a lesser degree the ACC.  It's certainly upsetting to the vast majority of NCAA institutions to see them giving favorable treatment to the big boys, but at this point the NCAA has let it go on for so long that it's basically self preservation.

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.


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.

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.

TuteTibiImperes: SubBass49: TuteTibiImperes: If Manziel was black the decision would have been the same

Not too likely.  You'd have him portrayed in media as a thug if he did HALF the stuff that he's done as a White guy, the public would be turned against him, and he'd probably be done with the season if not his NCAA career.

/BTW...I'm White.

Has the media been behind him?  Maybe I've been reading the wrong sites, but I've seen plenty of bashing on him for being a whiny entitled jerkass.

No one has been calling him a thug or a gang banger. If he was black, or worse black with high profile tatoos, they would

It would be cool if Manziel had decided as a freshman in high school that the NCAA was corrupt as shiat and recorded a video detailing his plan to become a superstar football player, then purposely do something illegal and get a slap on the wrist for being white. All because the NCAA had screwed over his favorite player, "whoever", for breaking the rules while having the gall to be black. Everything he's done up until now has all been part of the plan, and at the end of the season he makes the video public(because why disrupt the season any more than it already is) as a giant screw you to the NCAA. Then he goes pro.

I mean, I don't think that was what he was going for, but it sure would have been cool.

Is this 10.5 games less than Dez Bryant deserved?

Or is this 10.5 short of what Cam Newtown should have gotten?

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

They'll be out of business in 5 years, tops.  They just gave every players ever suspended for receiving compensation grounds for a lawsuit.  Terrelle Pryor alone is going to cost them millions.
