On Wednesday, the Johnny Manziel pay-for-autographs scandal that had engulfed the college football world over the month of August came to an exciting conclusion.
By “exciting,” we actually mean “laughable.” The reigning Heisman Trophy winner was suspended for the first half of the Aggies’ season opener against Rice, and no one is quite sure why.
You’re probably wondering to yourself: Did the NCAA just give Johnny Football an extra half to shake off the booze from Friday night? Yes, yes they did.
Celebrities have taken to Twitter to share with the world why they believe Mr. Football will be riding the pine for 30 minutes – or simply to giggle at the consistently inconsistent “ruling body” we have all come to watch in a mix of disgust and awe, the NCAA.
How could Urkel not get into the fun?
Deion Sanders only recently tied a ribbon around his divorce, so apparently he still has the legality of it all fresh in his mind.
Tyrann Mathieu was kicked off the LSU football team altogether two years ago. When Manziel basically got off scot-free, the Honey Badger sent out a tweet that was deleted, but lived on.
Obviously, members of the sports media had themselves a field day.
