4,000 autographs and no money AT ALL

Got it. Makes perfect sense. So ESPN backtracks if aggy agrees to not sue.
Aggy says 'nothing to see here, move along', and we are getting back to
the Sherrill days of aggy malfeasance. These boyz r fitting right in with the SEC.
Play ball.

Re: 4,000 autographs and no money AT ALL [re: SectionThree]

The NCAA needs to be dismantled. Not just because of this but because they have become useless and more of a problem. They are virtually toothless when it comes to legal matters unless evidence is right in front of their face. Some schools get in trouble, others don't. Their very lack of subpoena power demonstrates a major shortcoming of theirs.

They need to be torn down and a new version created that will actually provide the function they started out to do.

I agree with you 100%. The first thought that I had was that I need to talk with a friend that is a big gun in a major Vegas book. There has got to be a decent proposition bet, somewhere in Vegas, that will quote odds on whatever may become of the NCAA.

I don't know if it will be 5 years, or 10 years, but the NCAA is living on borrowed time - at least in it's present form.

Dennis Dodd at CBS has written several articles on the NCAA's inevitable demise in conjunction with the emergence of a "Division 4" in college football.

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby appears to be on board.

Division 4 to revolutionize college athletics

Who can possibly believe Manziel would sign that many balls for sports merchandisers for nothing? And be caught on tape saying that it never happened? Who believes that?

Nobody believes it. But there has to be some burden of proof that the NCAA must meet.

He beat the rap, fair and square. The issue is decided. A&M and Manziel are almost as innocent as Auburn and Cam Newton (Just a half a game suspension more consequences.)

Obsession about fairness can really be a bummer, so I'm moving on.

Uh, obviously JM took money, but he committed no crime. When the NCAA can jail folks, that's when they should have the power of subpoena

Exactly. JM stuck with his story and no one else was willing to cooperate

Congrats to aggy; he beat the rap. "deserve" got nothing to do with it. somebody save that lawyer's business card -- might be a good # for the rolodex now that old Johnny Cochran is underground

I was expecting the link above to be to Longhorn Network or the Texas Athletic site.

Re: 4,000 autographs and no money AT ALL [re: SectionThree]

Compare to Dez Bryant, who was not so "lucky"! And he is mad - not necessarily at Manziel, but at the NCAA for being so unfair and inconsistent in its rulings!

Dez Bryant - 4 games into the season ruled ineligible for LYING to NCAA officials - lying! Read this article:

In other words, he never told the truth! That's my instinct - and one day, one day, there will be some kind of payback.

I'm thinking Dez Bryant probably didn't have an attorney versed in NCAA laws coaching him through what and what not to say. The Manziels played this very well.
