There might not be a collegiate athlete in the country who enjoys his celebrity status more than Johnny Manziel. The Heisman Trophy winner has been living it up the past several months. A day after lighting up Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl, he hit up an Oklahoma casino and showed off his wealth. Manziel shared a photo on his Instagram account Saturday of himself and two others at WinStar World Casino. He was seen fanning a stack of bills, and he captioned the photo, “Casino ballin!” It didn’t take long for WinStar to realize they had the best college football player in the country in the house, and they welcomed him via Twitter: Heyyyyyyy!! Have fun and good luck! “@jmanziel2: Winstar wassssuppp!” — WinStar World Casino (@WinStarWorld) January 6, 2013 Of course, any time a photo of a college football player with cash in hand emerges, questions of potential NCAA violations follow. The 20-year-old redshirt freshman quarterback addressed those issues as well as questions about whether he old enough to be gambling: Nothing illegal about being 18+ in a casino and winning money…KEEP HATING! — Johnny Manziel (@JManziel2) January 6, 2013 The best part of all is that Manziel received some empathy from a fellow teen superstar athlete, Bryce Harper: @jmanziel2 Yea I know what you mean! #youngcrew — Bryce Harper (@Bharper3407) January 6, 2013 Let’s just recap all the awesomeness in which Manziel has indulged the past few months: Doing the Top 10 for David Letterman Sitting courtside for a Heat-Mavericks game Golfing with the Jonas Brothers Hanging with his hot girlfriend It must be good to be Johnny Football. The post Johnny Manziel visits casino, flosses his money (Picture) was published on Larry Brown Sports.

  • People are not hating on Johnny they looking out for him because when you are on scholarship their are certain rules you have to follow. Oh he exempt because he won the heisman, Not. If that was any other kid posing at a casino the would be investigated by the NCAA. With him posing with pro athletes and so on I think he should be treated like any ordinary joe or college kid under a scholarship. If not whyt not let all the student athlete go to the casinos. Trust me this fame is only short lived cause he is being reckless

Report: Michael Bennett wants Seahawks to trade him

This next story is a nice reminder that there’s a reason why we hear player rumors and report on them. Many of them turn out not to be true, but sometimes where there’s smoke there’s fire. A few weeks ago we passed along a report that Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett wanted to be traded to Dan Quinn’s Atlanta Falcons. That one was incorrect and the team denied...

Bursting the NFL playoff expansion bubble

Hey, I have an idea. Let’s invite every NFL team into the playoffs! Sure. Why not? Talk about television revenue! So what if the Super Bowl falls on Mother’s Day? OK, that’s exaggeration for effect. But when Roger Goodell and the league start talking like expanding the postseason is only a matter of time, one must stop and consider if they care more about making money or...
