Wonder how big of a dump Hundley will take against Nevada. Big enough for Baby Jerry to get some snaps in?

Manziel suspended a half game for...?

A negotiated punishment that just reinforces how hypocritical and nonsensical the NCAA can be. I can't wait to hear what the half-game suspension is for, because it's basically the next phase in the "choose your own adventure" book of NCAA bs. Is he being suspended for taking payments? Well then, look at the punishments they handed to Pryor and his OSU teammates. Lying? That cost Dez Bryant a whole season. Oh, and if they say he lied about the payments that means they know he took the cash as well. And he gets a half-game. Is this a punishment for last year's bar fight? That would mean he's getting punished what, a whole year later for something everyone knew about?

They can say whatever they want to, everyone knows Manziel got paid and everyone knows the NCAA doesn't want to hurt the Alabama/A&M game.

I wonder if Dez Bryant has grounds for a lawsuit.

Smells like bullshit but whatever. What does a one-half suspension even tell us? Was that A&M's doing or the NCAA's? Because if it was the NCAA's, wouldn't it be them admitting he was guilty of something to some extent? And if so, shouldn't the suspension be at least one full game?

This is why I want to hear their reason for suspending him. Because either he's guilty or he's not. If he's guilty of taking payments then the NCAA was grossly unfair to the various athletes they've punished in the past for this. And if they decided that he's not guilty then they have no justification for punishing him.

Question: Isn't the NCAA run by smart people with degrees and doctorates in things? Do they just enjoy looking ridiculous?

NCAA is the most corrupt, piece of shit, dirtiest organization in the world. They are supposed to be not for profit, yet make billions of dollars while paying the workers absolutely nothing. They should be broken up and destroyed for breaking anti trust law, and the leagues that feed off their talent pools should be forced to create real minor league systems that actually pay the workers, the way MLB does.

Great decision by the NCAA. No evidence of Manziel being paid. Just made up BS by ESPN.

National championship and back-to-back Heisman are back on track.

The only punishment will be Rice in the 2nd half. Because Manziel will be playing that entire half to shake off any rust for the Bama game. Kyle Field is going to be nuts when he comes onto the field.

If you're right then why did they punish him?

Clowney... 3 tackles in 42 snaps.

Way too much hype for an above average player.

Clowney - not so impressive. Most of this half Hurst has been playing him alone and Clowney is a non-factor. For a guy physically built like he is, he sure has terrible stamina.

Renner is so meh. I know he's breaking records and most fans love him, but I'm counting the days until Trubisky takes the helm. He just doesn't fit Fed's offense and his arm is overrated. Little touch, can't throw on the run, average strength... I don't get the hype. At least Morris and Ebron look like beasts out there. Too bad Ebron will be making pro bowls before Trubisky has a chance to take over the college football world.

You may think he's overhyped but he's better than "above average".

I'd expect him and other players to be somewhat gassed/winded in the first game of the season, especially playing in 90+ degree heat in August. Wouldn't expect him to be this gassed, though.

Clowney was unimpressive but he was also being doubled all game. His presence was still a positive factor for his team. His motor was questionable but he's still the #1 pick based on what he's already shown.
