Fox Sports Southwest:
FOX Sports 1's new show Crowd Goes W!ld is taking sports debating to a whole new level. Instead of the usual two experts arguing against one another, the show takes things to another level with panelists arguing with themselves during its 'Pardon the Contradiction' segment.
Of course there is no better way to start a sports debate than with a good war of words about one of the most controversial figures in sports right nowJohnny Manziel.
Stand up comedian Michael Kosta was honored with the question, and he did a fine job of summing up most of the nation's views on Texas A&M's Heisman-winning quarterback after co-host Georgie Thompson gave him the topic Johnny Manziel is making smart choices.
First Kosta uses the 'Manziel is only 20-years-old' everyone has heard the quarterback himself say time and time again, but when host Regis Philbin rings the bell signaling a change to voice the opposite view, the tennis player turned comedian doesn't hold back about his feelings on the Aggie star's autograph scandal. However, after one more bell ring from Philbin, Kosta admits college players should be able to benefit from their own autographs.
Confusing? Yes, but this one man just managed to explain everything good and bad about Manziel recent actions in just 30 seconds while some other experts are still arguing about what will happen to the Heisman winner.

In a lot of the stuff that has been printed about Johnny Manziel his parents (at least his dad) has been pretty up front with how he feels about the school. Well, maybe after the email that the Chancellor sent out his mind can be at ease.
Because I think it is clear that the university has every intention of standing by its embattled quarterback.
It appears that despite all the work being put in at football practice, Texas A&M Aggies players know how to have a good time while engaging in locker room shenanigans.

A wilder offseason could not have been imaginable for Johnny Manziel, the first freshman ever to win the Heisman Trophy and now the de facto favorite for the trophy headed into 2013. But has the off-field persona detracted from the monster that made SEC defenses tremble throughout 2012?

I'm not normally one to comment on SEC football, but I think that the Texas A&M scandal needs to be addressed.The ineptitude of the NCAA becomes more and more astounding each and every day. An example of this--The University of Miami (FL) has been waiting on NCAA action on violations that occured a two years ago in the Nevin Shapiro scandal.The Hurricanes have already penalized...
