Monday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Monday morning. …

ESPN says the NCAA is investigating Johnny Football because he’s looking too much like Johnny Cash. Actually the allegation is that Johnny Manziel profited from the sale of his autograph.

So Manziel is under investigation, but at the glacial pace those things move with the NCAA he could play the 2013 season at Texas A&M and be in the NFL before any conclusions are reached. Then the question would be if the Aggies would forfeit wins, not what might happen to Manziel.

Speaking of autographs, if you’re trying to load up at Alabama’s Fan Day you better not be on the clock. This from Cecil Hurt is what he describes as the intersection of the Nick Saban line and the A.J. McCarron line. video here as Alabama fans sprint into position for autographs. …

From Baton Rouge, The Advocate’s Scott Rabalais says Jeremy Hill’s promising career is hanging by a thread, and there’s only one person to blame. LSU has a history of good running backs, but Hill, with is size, strength and speed, can/could be something very special. Don’t know which tense to use there at the moment. …

From Columbia, the South Carolina one, is Jadeveon Clowney motivated by his childhood nickname? Could be. …

From Columbia, the Missouri one, Gary Pinkel’s name has been mentioned in a few hotseat conversations. Overall, the Tigers are just looking for respect. Year 1 in the SEC was not very good for them in that regard. …

From Fayetteville, odds are that Brandon Allen, son of a former Arkansas assistant, will be the starting quarterback to christen the Bret Bielema Era. …

    Hope spring eternal for Ole Miss..It’s fall camp, got all the recruits in and the future is so bright you gotta wear shades. However, I am growing quite concerned about the these ever increasing rumors of NCAA violations. I have heard that as soon as the NCAA finishes up with Johnnie 2 Taints at A&M, that Ole MIss is next. Rumors of failed/ falsified drug tests, gifts for signing and video taped cash payments to recruits.

    like last year what did all your threats of cover ups, paid players and the huge
    evil work at Ole Miss lead to. I would be more worried about State and turtle neck, he has no morals or respect, His arrogance paid off though he was able to

    Look for breaking news out of Georgia by next weekend, concerning the ongoing Ole Miss investigation. There are many trails to follow and the NCAA is understaffed.
