What may be a first in college football, TAMU gives their coach a contract extension after (well, actually just before) going 0-4 against end-of-season ranked opponents and finishing fourth in his division.
And the past few weeks would suggest the TAMU offensive line collectively may have been more deserving of the Heisman.

That '05 Texas team had a very good defense too - three first round draft choices in the secondary alone.

Makes sense to have a uniform drug policy to create a "level playing field", but I don't think Morehead is talking about testing for anabolic steroids.

I would hold that the percentage of women on campus is far less important than the number of attractive women on campus. It's awfully hard to find more, better looking women than in Baton Rouge although College Station has seen rapid improvement on that front. (Keeping in mind the majority of your readers would agree that most 20 year-old women are attractive, but that we were a bit more selective - or stupid - when we were 20 years-old).

I disagree that Fitch would clearly qualify as agent as defined in Bylaw 12; a reasonable case can be made either way.
More to the point, TAMU likely goes 11-1 or 10-2 with Manziel playing; 9-3 or 8-4 without him. The team and University should stand by their players, but if the preponderance of the evidence suggests he has been playing fast and loose with the rules, then University and it's football team would likely be better off to suspend him (from the team, not the University). JFF will be OK. The team will be OK. Some in the media and at the bar will have to feed themselves from another trough.

All good advice, but if he really wants to shed the limelight (And I agree, I'm not so sure he does) all he needs to do is start turning the ball over.
Or maybe AJ McCarron can give him some brotherly advice as they spend the Christmas Holidays together on the French Riviera trying to chase women who have never heard of them (and LSU prepares for the BCS title game).

Still not sure what JFF has done wrong, at least morally. But he's created his own monster and it would appear that his parents have done nothing more than enable him. I'm still baffled by why anyone would care where he goes, who he dates and how much he drinks as long as he stays out of trouble. That said, many Aggies are starting to wonder if he is really one of them. And if he and Daddy Paul start blaming the university for his problems, then there will likely be little love lost once he leaves College Station for greener pastures. As far as Sumlin is concerned, I think we're all getting a taste of the Sumlin management style. Everyone is self-serving to some extent, but my gestalt is that Sumlin is more so than most. In a few years, when Sumlin and JFF are both in the NFL (although not necessarily successful), Aggies will look back fondly on their brief time in Aggieland, embrace the program they helped build and the new coach who will plant firm roots in the Brazos Valley. Hopefully that wil be Larry Fedora.

Against Florida and LSU Manziel had difficulty finding the open receiver - against Florida the receivers had a difficult time getting open. Against LSU, he made poor decisions. By the season's end he had improved markedly in both regards.
As far as jumping to the NFL, just as important as Manziel's on-field performance will be how NFL defenses respond to the dual threat quarterback this coming season. If Wilson, Griffin (who is a much better passer) and Kaepernick are contained, then I would bet Manziel's stock falls quite a bit. He's not an NFL-quality passer.
Regardless, I doubt anyone has seen a better college quarterback. Title or not.

Les Miles is essentially a professional entertainer - he makes an awful lot of money to put a competitive product on the field. One reason he makes this kind of money is the the near total media coverage of college, and specifically, LSU football. On the upside, he is absurdly well-compensated. On the downside, he is constantly under the microscope, even microscopes belonging to knuckleheads. Had McGraw had the same lax standards in political or financial reporting he would and should be hung out to dry - OK, maybe not if he were commenting on La. politics.. But he's talking about college football and a college football coach. Rumors, true or not, are often what drive interest. Nevertheless, the higher standards at Mr.SEC are appreciated.
