    With the 3-ring circus surrounding Manziel I would not be surprised to see A&M take a step backwards this year. Just too many distractions for it to not effect the team.

    I'll admit I want to see a huge step back because of the entire circus surrounding him.

    I don't see a thing wrong with what he is doing. Why should someone else make a profit off his success?

    No one said there was anything wrong with it but I certainly would consider this and other things going on a distraction. It's a free enterprise system and hope he makes millions off his nickname.

    It would be nice for a week to go by without a new thread about Manziel.

    I'm sick of the hype, sick of the party, sick of the whole thing. The dude lost TWICE last year, and if not for some questionable (being nice here) play calling would have lost a third time (and a fourth - that Heisman was won basically bc he beat us).

    Wasn't Johnny Unitas called Johnny Football? I'm not that old.

    EDITED:
    Should not have basically called for an injury. My apologies to everyone.

    I'll always look back as I walk away
    This memory will last for eternity
    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
    Til I find my way back to your arms again

    Only a few people in the world have the ability to remember everything. I'm one of them. Pick any day of my life, and I can tell you what I saw or heard.

    Hey, it's smart on his part. Gotta give him that. It's his brand now, thanks to the media. No one should be able to profit off it except him (when he's allowed to do so).

    I hate that nickname and refuse to use it! I guess I won't have to worry about legal repercussions.

    I saw some national sportswriters tweeting about this last night. They wondered how the NCAA will handle the Manziel's winnings from the lawsuit if he and this person settle out of court.

    He won the Heisman Trophy. People everywhere are talking about him. That can't be helped.

    Same here. He will go from Johnny Football to "Processed" after next year.
