Manziel was #1 in the Heisman voters' straw poll. Only 3 games into the season but it looks like few people care about his offseason incidents (and to be fair, none of it sounded major).

A lot of it was blown out of proportion just because of his fame, no one would have said anything if he wasn't a Heisman winner.

I don't see what there is to hate about him, the kid is only 20, of course he's gonna make dumb mistakes. What matters is how he lives up to his ability.

Wow, NC State just got ****ed. He wasn't even close to being out. Crazy how refs can affect a game so much.

Well, they are the same team Texas beat 56-7, so they're pretty f***ing terrible. Really, UCLA fans should be disappointed in anything less than a 49+ point win.

I agree with the ridiculous and hypocritical part of the NCAA but Foster's reasoning (and football players, in general) is quite stupid at times.

He wants to talk about how he has no money for food, supplies, etc. Are you kidding me? Football players are treated like kings at the top universities - free quality food at both the cafeterias and at their facilities, the best (FREE) dorm choices, free clothes, etc., etc. I played D3 in college and lived entirely by the meal plan freshman and sophomore years - snacks included. You mean to tell me these kids can't just grab some extra food to go from their university food locations? Not like these are track or water polo players, they're football players, everyone recognizes them.

Yea, I was thinking the same exact thing. I refuse to believe that a football player playing for a major D1 program doesn't have some sort of Meal plan.. Not only that I'm sure the football program offers the players post practice/game meals along with other stuff like supplements, clothes, tutors, special privileges, etc. I'm pretty sure these D1 players are being fed like kings

So he's basically complaining that he doesn't have food in his dorm at 3am lol. Then he's trying to play the victim card

I do feel for guys like Manziel and Pryor. Why can't players sell their own autographs? What's the difference between that and him getting a job? Doesn't make sense but that's probably because the colleges don't want the athletes to get any of the $$ and they just want it all for themselves. I forgot Pryor's case but I remember it having to due with tattoos.

Right now on ABC (maybe showing Duke b/c it's my local area) Pitt @ Duke and it's no doubt a snooze-fest. It's at Duke, and the stands are virtually empty. The only time that stadium is even close to being full is when their sworn rivals are visiting (UNC).

Lack of seats filled, very low national interest in their football program, why even bother?

Hell, when if ever has Duke had a nationally ranked unit in the Top 25?

The triple option is going to give me nightmares again. Damn it that stupid, pop warner, gimmick system. Utilize a real system *******s.

And the refs keep giving them an extra 1-2 yards on the spot. That last guy was clearly TWO yards short. I'm not even talking about a few inches here or there. TWO ****ING YARDS. And they get the first. What the ****, man? That or the ESPN yellow line is really off. By like 3 yards.
