LinemanStanford Cardinal are very strong this year, but have lost the heart of the running game with Stepfan Taylor. Will this take an effect on the team? Can the line with hold the pressure? Rotation at the running back position a bad sign?

Texas A&M chancellor recently spoke out on the issues surrounding Johnny Manziel. What do we think? How do we feel about the chancellor’s opinions? Here are his quotes:

“I also think that there’s something, you know this is just me talking not as chancellor of the system, something is wrong with the system when we can make money off of our football players, the NCAA make money off of our football players and they can’t be treated like Olympic athletes.”

“I suspect, courts or somebody or the NCAA is going to have to take a look at that and see whether or not they’re violating someone’s anti-trust deal. How can the NCAA, for instance, make money off of his jerseys and he can’t, you know, make two bucks off of signing something like that, like other athletes can who happen to be in the Olympics. That’s just my opinion.”

“I’ll tell you what’s true, without a doubt, he’s a good kid. He is an honest kid, he has his heart in the right place and I think a whole bunch of folks are mistreating him and I’m not very happy about that.”

Listen to our take on the payment of collegiate football players.
