The Victory Formation:
One of my favorite times of the year is SEC Media Day. This is where we begin to realize that football is just around the corner, and we are usually in for a few really good quotes. Usually they come from Steve Spurrier at the expense of Tennessee, but all eyes were focused on Johnny Manziel as he answered a slew of questions. There were plenty of softballs lobbed at him, as one could expect to keep the mood somewhat loose, but the one everyone wanted to know was about what happened while he attended the Manning Passing Camp. Late Saturday, a report surfaced from Rumors & Rants that Manziel was sent home by Archie Manning after a long night of partying. Once word began to spread, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen issued a report Sunday that Manziel and the organizers of the camp agreed that he should go home because he was sick, which caused him to miss morning assignments. Then pictures leaked out of Manziel at the bars in College Station Saturday night. A day later, Manziel’s father claimed his son was suffering from dehydration. Finally, there was a report of Manziel apologizing to his teammates and admitting a need [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
NOT HOW IT HAPPENED
Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel denied rumors that being hungover was the cause of his oversleeping at the Manning Camp, instead blaming it on his phone dying.
Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel was released from Manning Passing Academy on Saturday afternoon, after he was late showing up to camp. Numerous reports surfaced that Manziel took a night out on the town and was partying. Manziel apologized to Texas A&M coaching staff earlier this week citing “illness” and “dehydration.” Manziel, a sophomore, has made stayed in the headlines...
The long held belief was that underclassmen were not ready for big time college football, that they needed some time to get conditioned while “earning” their chance. It was a belief shared by the giants of college football, some of whom are held in the highest regards. Men like Paul “Bear” Bryant viewed this as the “right way” to do things. My how things have changed...
Johnny Manziel had the college football world by the...tail...in 2012. During Texas A&M's first year in the uber-competitive SEC, he led the Aggies to an 11-win season, including a victory over the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. He became the first freshman to win the coveted Heisman Trophy, and his infectious smile and Boy Scout attitude seemed as though they would carry...
How much information is too much?
We live in a world where information is king. This is because it can cause great damage or be beneficial to millions. When it comes to celebrities there are rabid fans that look beyond the sports and even look beyond celebrities being real people and take information seeking to a whole new level.
Recently a highly touted quarterback of a major college...
I do not own a Heisman Trophy vote, but if I ever do have the honor of voting for college football’s highest individual honor I am reasonably certain that I will not overreact to a player’s offseason the way one Oregon sports writer has.
Aaron Fentress, who covers Oregon for The Oregonian, feels 2012 Heisman Trophy winner and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is the new...
Alabama has won the last two BCS national titles, but that isn't good enough for the Crimson Tide.
Those championship seasons each had one blemish.
They want perfection.
Last season's stunning home loss to Texas A&M still stings in Tuscaloosa, and they're using it as motivation.
There's no doubt the Tide have Sept. 14 circled on their calendars when they...
The other star quarterback entering into the 2013 college football season is Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron. He was recently seen at the same bar in Thibodaux, LA as the Manning brothers, and his roommate for the camp, Johnny Manziel. Unlike Manziel, McCarron was able to get himself out of bed and arrive on-time last Saturday morning at the Massing Passing Academy...
Manziel answered a few questions about what happened with the Mannings and why he was sent home before he stepped on the podium at SEC Media Days.
HOOVER, Ala. -- With six schools and the one player that everyone has been waiting to hear from in attendance, the second day of the SEC Media Days figures to be the most riveting.
Here are five things to watch as Auburn, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Texas A&M take the stage.
1. What will Manziel say?
It's been an eventual seven months for Johnny...

Texas A&M starting quarterback Johnny Manziel's sudden departure from the Manning Passing Academy football over the weekend has unleashed an well-expected media frenzy. The trouble is that in all the coverage very little has been revealed about whether or not Manziel's departure was due to illness...
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel said the reason he left the Manning Passing Academy early over the weekend was not because he was hungover. Manziel was asked directly during an interview on ESPN’s “College Football Live” if he was drinking alcohol during his time at the
