Here we go. The snowball that started with a 95-character Tweet late Saturday night continues to pick up steam as Texas Monthly now joins the chorus of outlets reporting Manziel was nearly suspended for the fall semester and almost transferred before having his appeal granted and oh God do we really have 70+ days left until football?
Podcastin'. We know it's not Friday, but give you the Podcast nonetheless. The guys preview some Mississippi State football, and even find a bit of time to discuss the media's treatment of Johnny's infamous Tweet.
Oh yeah those other guys. SB Nation's collection of college football blogs put their heads together to compile their pre-season All-Americans, and the Ags are quite well-represented. In addition to the obvious first-team choices of Manziel and Matthews, Mike Evans was voted second-team and Cedric Ogbuehi got some well-deserved respect with the third team nod.
And these other guys. Athlon released their pre-season All-SEC teams yesterday, and we've got 10 players represented. Only Alabama (14) had more. Joining the usual aforementioned suspects were Trey Williams (KR), Deshazor Everett, Ben Malena, Jarvis Harrison, Steven Jenkins, and [drum roll, please] Taylor Bertolet as the 4th-team kicker.
At least the guy has a sense of humor:
