I can see wanting to kick MSU out of the SEC, but why would he include Ole Miss? It's not all about the money and Ole Miss brings so many intangibles to the table. We actually compete with LSU and the big boys. MSU may beat the ones they should, but they never beat LSU, Bama, Auburn, et al. MSU brings no intangibles or tangibles. They are just there siphoning off all our money and not contributing a thing except for W's to the have's win column. (Hey, I might have just hit on the reason they are still here.)

What some people don't take into account is that teams from the West like Ole Miss play Alabama, Auburn, and LSU every year...All these people moaning about the SEC playing cream puffs don't have to play Bama, Auburn, and LSU every year. Not every other year or one in 3 years...but every year.

Why are people so ready to defend him (Winston) for whatever the allegations are?
I'll tell you why, because he can play football extremely well..He has
been taught that he can do no evil because everyone has made excuses for
his behavior his whole life....why? because he is good at sports...Slow
white guy would have already been kicked off the team a long time
ago...and Marcellus Wiley would never have come to his defense.
Just the way it is...Something tells me this won't be the last issue
either. Why would he ever stop knowing that the world will come to his

MSU's defense could be that good, or more than likely it is their anemic offense and unimaginative play calling.

The best teams at the time were in the East and they saw it unfair that the west got "freebies" and didn't have to play the East as many times. Wonder how the East would feel if football followed suit?

@gephillips54 @bigreb Ha...How many Redskin players or fans are committing racist acts against Redskins or I guess I should say against Cowboys? There is a racist undercurrent associate with Ole Miss, like it or not....it's there. We refuse to do away with the symbols of the past and hatred and it shows a stubbornness at the very least...and maybe what it shows is much worse than simple stubbornness.
Ole Miss did away with the Confederate Flag only by banning flag sticks...is this not correct? They were afraid to make a stand against racism and it's past by banning flag sticks which are used to hold the flag. Tell me what this shows. How hard is it to simply come forward and say, "The Confederate Flag is a symbol of hatred and racism and this institution realizes the hurt that this causes many, and we are taking a stand to do away with this symbol."? Instead, you appease the old guard and racist element by banning flag sticks?

People in the stands get to say whatever they want to whomever they want without fear of retribution. I don't know if I'd be able to control my emotions with some of the things that are said. We are talking about kids here who are competing at a high level and for sure if a racial slur was used, the guy is lucky he only got shoved. If a slur wasn't used and he was only being a smart alec, he is lucky he only got shoved.
And then you have the Marshall Henderson thingy, where an athlete taunts the crowd regularly. He is lucky to not have been attacked and beaten to a pulp by now. It's called" incite"...my 4 year old can bug my 6 year old until finally he gets a response. Then he comes running to daddy after the response that his own behavior has caused. Do I feel sorry for my 4 year old? No...Do I feel sorry for the rich, white fan who was taunting a 20 year old black basketball player, and the basketball player responded in the heat of the moment by shoving him? No

Gotta agree with you about MSU. The problem with them is that a high percentage of their fans are happy with the limited success that Mullen has had and don't believe that they can do better. He has spent more time running his mouth than getting his offense in gear.

In all fairness, it seems Russell is just making the most of essentially being demoted to a 2 QB system after being the starter for the past few years. He is trying to be positive. Wallace' comments were ill advised and in your face, this is what we are going to do to you. Hey, I know both these teams and their players pretty well. Russell is making the most of an awkward situation. He is being asked questions that put him on the spot, and he's giving Dak props and at the same time handling his demotion with grace. And speaking of 2 QB systems, I don't think there's a whole lot of competition to be the best in America at the moment.
1 year, 6 months ago on MSU’s Russell Says He’s Part Of The Best 2-QB Tandem In America
Scott Stricklin is "losing this generation" because he is allowing a non competitive coach to continue to coach his team. MSU hasn't competed against the big boys in quite some time. Mr Stricklin, get you a coach that will field a competitive team, and you won't lose this generation.

Anyone who would blame this on Croom has no clue. None. Care to look up Jackie Sherrill's last 3 years at MSU? In the crapper and he lost control of team. Croom came and rebuilt the team after kicking the problems off. Croom was the one who was left a completely bare cupboard and had quality wins against UF, Bama,Mullen has zero quality wins and should have beaten LSU his first year with Croom's men. Poor coaching and playcalling. Not everyone was made to be a head coach, same as not everyone was made to be a nuclear physicist. Nothing to be ashamed of, he just can't do it. He is rich now and has had his turn. Time to give someone else a try.

How do you have "misdemeanor" carnal knowledge of a juvenile? Is it because there were 2 of them holding her down instead of just 1? I have no idea. The fact this guy is still getting a free pass out of jail should show us where our society is at and what we value, and it should scare us all.

@BonzaiB @bigreb @the_voice "families are complex"? This is your attempt to say exonerate Manziel and his family?
Nobody here is saying Manziel is worse than Roethlisberger and his multiple sexual misconduct charges. Sorry you missed that.
What most are saying is that he is acting like a rich, spoiled punk and normal teams don't respond well as a team to rich, spoiled punks as their leaders. Normal parents that love their kids will try and discipline them and won't blindly defend them in the face of overwhelming evidence.
@BonzaiB @the_voice Comparing him to Roethlisberger and Vick doesn't make how he is acting okay. No more than comparing Weiner from New York to Charles Manson would make his escapades okay. Manziel is acting like a rich kid punk. His parents are now blaming the university of Texas A&M and saying they are just "selfish". At no time in all this have I heard them say anything about their child...and that is how Manziel is coming off, as a child.
What will the reaction be to papa Manziel's statement that Texas A&M is being selfish in all this surrounding his son? Is any one player bigger than the team?

@Eagle78 Eagle, I don't think anyone would disagree with you about the power of the media. Assuming this is the case here and the media is out to get you, do you continue to go out and break the law with all the under age drinking, and then keep posting off the cuff, alcohol fueled rants on twitter for the world to see? This stubbornness that says, "I'm gonna do what I want to do, no matter what the heck anyone thinks about it, even though the media is out to get me" shows to me a dangerous disregard for authority if true. Nobody is so big that they don't have to answer to some authority. My father would quickly cut me down to size, and I'm 45 years old. I feel sorry for the Manziels because apparently they lost control of their son a long time ago, and they now have to play out this saga of not knowing what to do to try and get control of their son back, in front of the whole world. The only other option they have is to do what they are apparently now doing, placate him, make excuses for him, and take his side in every apparent misdeed.

Unfortunately this is of his own doing. Nobody to blame but himself.
@SRF BMT They said Manziel was really focused when he and his assistant coach had words and apparently Manziel shoved him. This comes from a Texas AM buddy who knows what goes on down there.
No matter how you cut it, Manziel is coming off as a spoiled brat....whether he really is or not. He needs someone to sit down and teach him how he should act now that he is in the spotlight.
Manziel is seeming like a prima dona now. Whether he is or not, it is what he seems like. Your average, every day Joe doesn't like prima donas.
What do you expect Auburn people to say? They will blindly swing at anyone who threatens them. Like we said before, when cash is involved it turns into a he said, he said scenario. You have to have the proof, because now they will paint and tar the people making the accusations.

There has been more smoke around Auburn than any other SEC program. Their crazed fans automatically attack anyone who says anything negative about Auburn. (many sec fans would do the same) The funny thing to me is that if this were Alabama, Barners would be screaming "Guilty" from the top of their lungs. (and you are lying if you disagree with me here)
So, the advantage here is to Auburn because these things are extremely hard to prove since we are always dealing with cash money. Untraceable cash. It will turn into a case of he said, he said.

Oh yeah....good article John. Most of the time you are spot on.
He is like the coward driver flipping you off because he knows you really can't do anything about it and even if you could, most people are civil and wouldn't. It would be the best thing that ever happened to him if someone would have their fill and put him on the ground. Maybe he would shape up and realize what a little turd he is being. The tragedy of it all is that he really is a good basketball player, but every time he acts crazy another GM probably writes him off as a head case.
