First, Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M tweeted his support to Mississippi’s Marshall Henderson on Saturday. It was pretty much a “haters gonna hate” tweet from Johnny Football to the antihero of the 2013 NCAA tournament:

After hitting the Kansas City bars on Friday and talking with Charles Barkley on Saturday, Henderson responded a few hours before he played the biggest game of his basketball career against La Salle in Kansas City Sunday night.

Marshall Henderson and Johnny Manziel are going to bro-down during a man-date at Chilifest in Snook, Texas on April 6. (Unless, you know, Ole Miss makes the Final Four — how about Henderson’s nonchalance with that reference?) That meeting — the entire weekend, in fact — needs to be filmed and documented.
Somebody call Gronk! There is no normal explanation as to why Rob Gronkowski hasn’t been looped into this scheme. He won’t be busy on April 6. Get an idea of what could happen if Johnny Football and the Landshark meet via the gallery below:

He confirmed that he made the gesture after the game, telling reporters that a...
Ole Miss’ Marshall Henderson has become known for basically doing whatever he feels like, on and off the court. Tonight, after his Rebels lost to La Salle on a last-second shot with a spot in the Sweet 16 on the line, Henderson reportedly gave the crowd two middle fingers on his way to the locker room.
Whether or not there will be repercussions remains to be seen.
Well, it was a fun weekend of following Marshall Henderson, the trolling guard for the Mississippi Rebels. With La Salle sending him and the Rebels home, and dreams of a Sweet 16 dashed, Henderson gave a double middle finger salute to the crowd as he exited the floor in Kansas City.

The internet nearly exploded when Johnny Football reached out to Marshall Henderson over Twitter.
All of you haters can finally breath a sigh of relief. Marshall Henderson and his Ole Miss Rebels have been eliminated from the tournament after yesterday’s 76-74 loss against LaSalle. Henderson didn’t handle the loss well and reportedly flipped the crowd the double bird:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Marshall Henderson's frustration was mounting with each 3-pointer that rattled out or clanged off the back rim. If this was supposed to be his coming out party on a national stage, he may as well have sent everyone home and thrown the cake in the trash.

Marshall Henderson was the face of Mississippi basketball this season as the Rebels advanced to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2002.
But the flamboyant, high-scoring guard had plenty of help from seniors Murphy Holloway and Reginald Buckner, two bruising and experienced forwards who did most of the dirty work in the paint while Henderson scored most of the points and...
Marshall Henderson may have more enemies than fans in the college basketball world, but not many of his critics can say they’ve received a personal shout-out from LeBron James.
The free-shooting, free-speaking guard from Ole Miss struggled in the first half of Friday’s matchup against Wisconsin, shooting only 1-11 from the field. But that didn’t stop the controversial star...
Marshall Henderson says if Mississippi fans want to take it out on anybody, they can take it out on him.

Nobody would have blamed La Salle's weary guys for leaving the Sprint Center, finding the nearest bed in the team hotel and laying down for a well-earned snooze.
