    Seems to me like the NCAA shouldn't allow something like this.
    I'm not saying it will happen but wouldn't that make it mighty easy for someone to take your classes for you?

    I guess it depends on the class. I took some online courses where you had to take tests in a proctored room, while others you do from home open book. I imagine when he gets into his 400 level classes he'll have to start attending classes on campus.

    Not a problem for me as far as the on-line classes, BTW. I'm guessing it's legal or he wouldn't be able to do it and talk about it.

    Re: Manziel Taking All On-Line Classes-Fishy?

    I would be concerned as a coach if I didn't trust the player as a student. I imagine some of this decision was based on Manziel's celebrity on campus. They might want to shelter him from the constant attention of fellow students.

    Online classes aren't much of a joke anymore. The systems are pretty well cultivated now and the higher bandwidth available to the masses allows for things like recorded lectures. In fact, I have found online classes more tedious because they rely on constant assignment busy work as a equivalence to attendance.

    Again, as a coach, I'd be very careful in who I let go this route because you can dig yourself quite a hole if you blow off the online coursework. I do imagine that this decision was made to shelter Manziel though not to keep him eligible with shady methods.

    Pretty sure it's legal. I just think an athlete should have to attend classes. Guess I'm just old school lol

    If he has to be at the computer doing the work at a certain time, he is attending class.

    Yep. There are different types of online classes. I've had ones where the teacher posts the assignments and has a due date. My girlfriend had three semesters worth of them that required her to be on the computer at 8 a.m. and respond to the teacher like she is in class.

    Is that part of Sumlin's Process? Does he just work out on his own?

    Will he even be on campus for a Spring game? Will he workout "ONLINE"?

    Don't they have a strength and conditioning program at A & M?

    I guess I could think of other questions, but this is a start.

    If our guys haven't checked into this at Bama, I guess they will now. If the Heisman Man can do it I guess anyone should be able to.

    Maybe they could play in the "A" Day game ONLINE. Hopefully, there will be no head injuries.

    Is that so? I found out a particular player was in one of my management classes back in '93 or '94 the day of the final.
