Basically it boils down to this: Manziel apparently lied to his own mother about his reason for missing camp meetings on Saturday morning, misled the media on SEC Media Day and threw Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron under the bus by forcing him to answer questions about why he didn’t wake Manziel up on Saturday morning. What McCarron h...

Four teams most likely to make deep playoff runs

Every year, analysts take their shots at picking Super Bowl teams and winners, and every year, there's one or two teams picked that don't  make much sense. That's not the case here.

So Johnny Manziel lied to us at SEC Media Day then?

I have no problem with Johnny Manziel living the life. I have no problem with him enjoying it. We’d all take the fame, publicity, girls, fun, parties, perks etc. if we were in his position. And let’s not forget, he’s only 20 years old. When I was 20, they didn’t even have MySpace yet. I’d shudder to think about TwitPics and Instagrams of my U of I days. However, I was always...
