Johnny Football Suspended for First Half Against Rice

College Station, TX --- On Wednesday, College football fans found out the fate of Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. After a near month long investigation by the NCCA into whether or not he accepted money for autographs he provided memorabilia dealers. His punishment? A suspension... of thirty minutes of game action.

After meeting with Manziel for hours this weekend, NCAA investigators ruled that last year's Heisman Trophy winner did not receive financial compensation for his John Handcoc, based off information and their talks with the quarterback himself.

Manziel will be ineligible only for play in the first half of the Aggie's season opener versus Rice. The suspension comes from what is being called an inadvertent violation of a bylaw stating players must do all they can to prevent others from profiting off them.

In a statement, the NCAA says this closes the book on their investigation on “Johnny Football”, unless, "more information comes to light".
