Texas A&M will find out Wednesday if they should play Johnny Manziel in season opener


Early Tuesday morning reports surfaced that Johnny Manziel met with NCAA officials for a six-hour meeting over the weekend to discuss the infamous memorabilia scandal that has dominated headlines for the past month and it leaves Texas A&M wondering what to do with their starting quarterback.

Should they start him and hope that the NCAA doesn’t rule him ineligible which would result in a loss of any wins or do they simply keep him on the bench until the NCAA decides what the next move is?

According to reports, A&M will be receiving a recommendation from the NCAA on whether or not to play Manziel within the next 24 hours.

According to radio host John P. Lopez:

Texas A&M would obviously love to have their star player available for the start of the season, but they don’t want to risk vacating wins and missing out on a potential national title run. It’s a very tricky situation.

While the drama looms over their heads, Texas A&M needs to remain focused on the first two weeks of the season. They have the talent to storm through their opponents, but the real test will come in Week 3 when they take on the Alabama Crimson Tide in a highly anticipated rematch that the world will be watching.

Hopefully Johnny Football will be on the field when the time comes.

    Starting to sound like another “Scam Newton” case for the NCAA! A guy they backed, gets caught, with enough evidence brought forward only to have the NCAA find a loophole so they do not look Worse than they ARE, and let a crooked player get by so they can keep making money off of him!
