Report: Manziel Suspended For First Half Of Opener (Updated)

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has been suspended for the first half of Saturday’s opening game against Rice, according to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.

The news was first reported by Billy Liucci of TexAgs.com.

 

Bylaw 12.5.2.2 requires a student-athlete to “take steps to stop” the sale of products featuring his or her likeness.

Liucci added ”all indications are that Manziel was not found guilty of accepting payment for signature,” meaning his punishment is for not stopping the sale of the items he signed.

Update: NCAA releases statement.

Texas A&M University and the NCAA confirmed today that there is no evidence that quarterback Johnny Manziel received money in exchange for autographs, based on currently available information and statements by Manziel. Due to an inadvertent violation regarding the signing of certain autographs, Texas A&M declared Manziel ineligible and submitted the following conditions for reinstatement to the NCAA:

  • A one-half game suspension for Manziel
  • Manziel will address the team regarding the situation and lessons learned
  • Texas A&M will revise its future education concerning student-athlete autographs for individuals with multiple items

Based on the information submitted by the university, the NCAA accepted the conditions as put forward by Texas A&M. If additional information comes to light, the NCAA will review and consider if further action is appropriate.

NCAA rules are clear that student-athletes may not accept money for items they sign and based on information provided by Manziel, that did not happen in this case.

@MrSEC wasn't it likely he was only going to play half the game anyway? Flex that muscle NCAA!

The NCAAlooks like either like a group of morons or that they are on the take. A half-game penalty is laughable. If they have nothing, leave the kid alone. If he is guilty, make the penalty painful. Sometimes the NCAA appears to be a bunch of clowns trying to run a circus.

paul harvey's stories were based on documented facts

So he sat through those autograph sessions, signing thousands of items, for free? Makes sense to me. At least this penalty will be worse than the one leveled at THE Ohio State players a few years ago where they got to play in the Sugar Bowl and then left school before having to serve any suspension for their misdeeds.

@bamaboyintn Actually they were mostly ancedotal, American folklore and legend.  But we all loved Paul Harvey.  Good day.
