So while watching the Texas A&M spring football game, I noticed plenty of fans wearing a "Johnny Football" shirt corresponding with a Texas A&M logo under it. I don't know if I'm missing something here, but can someone explain to me how this is NOT a violation? It's clearly showing the likeness of Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. This is a big deal to me because no longer than two weeks ago, the NCAA wouldn't let Louisville sell the "Ri5e to the Occasion" shirts due to the fact it revealed the likeness of Kevin Ware. I don't know if they're trying to make Johnny Manziel the poster boy of this naziship but I've began noticing a few things such as Johnny Manziel being practically the ONLY college athlete verified on twitter (Athletes such as Anthony Davis, Austin Rivers, Robert Griffin III and Cam Newton weren't verified until they entered their respective leagues) and I remember him uploading a picture with him and Rick Ross at a nightclub...... JOHNNY MANZIEL IS 20, and I highly doubt a very regarded entertainer would spend time at a 21-U night club. Did the NCAA investigate this? No, they didn't. (Here comes my bias) But when Shabazz Muhammad wears a gucci backpack, the NCAA feels it has the right and need to investigate this? What kind of crap is that? I wish there was a way all the universities could move to another association because the NCAA is complete a$$. Notice the dollar signs too. They want to figure out if the University of Miami payed their players, so they pay someone (a criminal) to reveal details. Yeah, that's perfectly fair. They suspended two IU players on some utter crap because their guardian bought IU bumper stickers before they were even born! Rant over, just something that's been on my mind.
You are absolutely correct. Well said.
Yea Chris Webber has some interesting opinions on this subject...the NCAA just exploits these players and makes their own stars and villains. Notice how most of the NBA's stars right now came out of high school and this "one-and-done" rule is ruining the draft!
