Johnny Manziel Frustrated With Texas A&M

Johnny Manziel Frustrated With Texas A&MSomething frustrated the Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel on early Sunday morning, as he tweeted the following before deleting it (h/t Josh Sanchez of Fansided, WARNING: Tweet contains explicit language):

“Bullshit like tonight is a reason why I can’t wait to leave college station…whenever it may be”

‘Walk a day in my shoes’

Oh boy. That is certainly not what Aggies fans want to see. Realizing how his tweet was going to be received after it hit the Internet this morning, Manziel responded with the following:

“Don’t ever forget that I love A&M with all of my heart, but please please walk a day in my shoes”


Manziel was phenomenal in 2012, accumulating over 5,000 yards from scrimmage and accounting for 47 total touchdowns. He was the first freshman in history to win the Heisman Trophy and became a star with his exciting, run-oriented style and catchy nickname, Johnny Football.

He also made headlines last summer when he was arrested after being involved in a fight and possessing a fake ID. And he made plenty of headlines this offseason after pictures surfaced of him on TMZ partying in a Texas club with what looked to be a bottle of Dom Perignon. Manziel is only 20 years old, of course. Like it or not, once you become a star, your personal life becomes public domain. It may not be fair, but that’s how it is.

What do you think caused Johnny Manziel’s Twitter outburst regarding the Texas A&M? Do you think he’ll get in trouble for that?

Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew Investigated For Alleged Assault

Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew Investigated For Alleged AssaultJacksonville Jaguars star running back Maurice Jones-Drew is under investigation for battery following an incident at a restaurant where he struck a security guard.


TMZ confirmed that while police initially reported that charges had been filed, they “misrepresented” the situation.

Now, a rep for the S.A.P.D. tells TMZ … they screwed up and “misrepresented” the situation.

According to cops … no charges have been filed against Jones-Drew, however, he IS being investigated for allegedly punching a security guard in the face … and is a “person of interest.”

Cops say Jones-Drew and his attorney are being cooperative with the investigation. After the investigation is complete, we’re told the case will be sent to the State Attorney’s office, which will determine if charges will be filed.

‘Punching a security guard’

The report states Jones-Drew was at The Conch House Marina Resort restaurant in St. Augustine, Florida when security advised a member of his group to stop making contact with a female. Chaos allegedly ensued after the acquaintance got physical with the security guard.

That’s when Jones-Drew reportedly got involved, punching a security guard and causing injuries described as a jaw that was “swollen a great deal and had a large lump.” No broken bones were found in a subsequent hospital trip.

How do you think will this incident affect the NFL career of Maurice Jones-Drew? Feel free to weigh in on his situation.
