Last week, former Texas A&M linebacker Santino Marchiol accused his former school of a spate of NCAA violations, in an effort to make his case that he should be allowed to play for Arizona this year because his transfer out of A&M was due to “hardships,” the only way he’d be allowed to play in 2018. As it turns out,…
The NCAA’s new transfer waiver rule lets players make the case that they should be allowed to play right away at their new schools, so long as their transfer was triggered by hardships beyond their control. Holding aside, for the moment, that requiring a waiver in the first place is bogus and unfair, probably nobody…
On the latest episode of Garbage Time, Katie Nolan discussed Texas A&M’s misguided Chalk Talk For Women event, which threw all sorts of sexism at A&M’s female fans.
Today’s episode of Outside The Lines took on the recent kerfuffle at Texas A&M, which saw Texas A&M wide receivers coach Aaron Moorehead chasing away recruits by acting like a baby on Twitter. ESPN recruiting analyst Tom Luginbill was brought on the show to give his takes on the situation, and he wasted no time in…
Welcome to the Deadspin 25, a college football poll that strives to be more democratic and less useless than every other preseason poll. Leading up to the college football season kickoff, we will give you previews of the 25 teams that you, the readers, voted to be most worthy of writing about. Now, No. 21 Texas A&M.
Texas A&M is known for promoting both football and its brand to the point of absurdity, and so it was more than fitting that they won the competition to land Daylon Mack, a coveted recruit from the Class of 2015. Mack, you see, managed to come out of the recruiting process not only with a scholarship, but with his…
The Liberty Bowl sure has been eventful! We've already had a Texas A&M student assistant go on a smackin' spree, and now we've got West Virginia kicker Josh Lambert taking a slap right to the dick and balls.
The Johnny Manziel-Drake bromance continues apace. "Draft day, Johnny Manziel / Five years later, how am I the man still?" begins Drizzy's newest song, giving rarely seen prominence to the athlete-shout-out portion of a rap song (poor Andrew Wiggins gets second billing).
Johnny Manziel will get much of the credit, and deservedly so since the Texas A&M defense allowed 38 points in the first half, but Johnny Football doesn't do what Johnny Football did unless his D tightened up in the second half.
Police issued a warrant Thursday for a suspect in a rape that occurred on LSU's campus during the Tigers' football game against Texas A&M.
Man, those kids are gonna get druuuuuunk on Friday night.
Despite what looked like a fairly painful shoulder injury, Johnny Manziel did return to the game and was effective almost immediately. He came back in and lead a 12-play 75 yard scoring drive, capped off by a one-yard rushing touchdown. And then whatever they likely shot him up with started to wear off.
Manziel was hit on a tumbling scramble on second-and-goal and immediately grabbed his right shoulder after it was driven into the ground. He got to his feet, tried walking to the bench and crumpled to the ground.
In one series, in the less than two minutes, Johnny Manziel made Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide both seethe and clap stone-facedly with delight.
Tracy Wolfson: How do you plan to control Johnny Manziel?
Scandal no one cares about sadly putters on. Hey, here's a picture of Johnny Manziel signing something with a vaguely sketchy dude standing next to him. You could look at it... you could go read this cool history of malt liquor marketing. Whatever, you know? [ESPN]
Johnny Manziel returned to action this afternoon after his half-game suspension and quickly started making noise. After a 23-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter—which put A&M up 38-21—Manziel seems to celebrate by counting theoretical (spiritual?) cash.
Texas A&M will hold a press conference tomorrow in anticipation of Saturday's season-opener against Rice and Johnny Manziel will be noticeably absent, in body and spirit. The Aggies will not make Manziel available to reporters and the athletic director, Eric Hyman, has instructed the coaches and players to avoid…
At SEC Media Days, Johnny Manziel blamed his cell phone and A.J. McCarron for oversleeping and arriving late to a Manning Passing Academy last Saturday. The site that broke the original story is now reporting McCarron couldn't have woken Manziel up—because Johnny Football didn't sleep in their room on Friday.
Johnny Manziel was one of many college quarterbacks to attend the Manning Passing Academy over the weekend. But he's the only one who was reportedly kicked out of it for being hungover.
