Stay Sharp. University Chancellor John Sharp spoke out yesterday in defense of Manziel and criticized NCAA policy. He concluded perfectly:
When asked if he was looking forward to seeing Manziel play in the season opener against Rice, Sharp said, “That would be an understatement.”
THAT's an understatement in itself. Understatementception.
ESPN REPORTS. Well, actually they ran an AP story about the legal development from yesterday. Good job guys.
Defeating the road. Team Speed Kills gives their perspective in an overview of our 2013 schedule that boasts eight home games.
COMING SOON. The podcast will be up shortly, and the guys visit with Texas Monthly author S.C. Gwynne, author of the forthcoming piece on Manziel as well as some pretty good books. Really looking forward to this one.
OTHER IMPORTANT COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWS. If you happened to enjoy the in-broadcast feature ESPN would do where Todd Blackledge would go to local dive restaurants and stuff his face with greasy foods (like I did), you are in luck. I have heard directly from the main consumer himself that Todd's Taste of the Town will be returning this season.
