    Why are they suspending him? Too much media coverage?

    By the school or by the NCAA? Is this the end or just the beginning?

    I have never understood the idea of suspending a player for half a game.

    Jim Tressel would like to know who Kevin Sumlin has pictures of.

    Manziel's signature on the document agreeing to suspension will
    be worth a fortune.

    They're suspending him for the half of the game that Rice has the ball...

    The guy who is citing his sources is a fanboi messageboard operator. My guess is this "report" will turn out to be incorrect and Manziel either doesn't get suspended at all or misses the entire game/multiple games.

    The NCAA, to my recollection, has never handed out a "half game" suspension. Don't know why'd they'd do that here.
