Johnny Manziel has been in the news quite a bit lately. Whether it’s been signing countless numbers of autographs for money, or not — no one knows, jousting in the locker room with his teammates or showing up with a hangover at the Peyton Manning football camp over the summer. This kid is just addicted to the spotlight whether he likes to admit it or not.
Well, Saturday the Texas A&M Aggies quarterback was forced to sit out a half for his autograph scandal that took place during the offseason. While he was never found to be actually receiving money for the autographs, it is still unknown what really happened and he was suspended for the first half. Yes — just 30 minutes in a 720-minute regular season.
Manziel did perform well when he did play in the second half of a 52-31 blowout against the Rice Owls. He completed six of eight passes while reaching 94 yards through the air and three passing touchdowns. It’s safe to say he’s going to have a solid season whether people like it or now.
During the second half, however, Manziel became very cocky and began taunting the opponent. Yes, the Rice Owls who are barely a threat. Sorry, Rice fans but you knew you weren’t going to beat the Aggies.
One of his favorite taunts was the ‘show me the money’ one that surely angered the NCAA after he threw his first touchdown pass.
The next taunt was a little more obnoxious. He had a seven-yard run, stood up, turned toward to the Owls and mocked the signature signing scandal he was involved in by seemingly telling the defender, ‘I’m not signing autographs for you’.

Just a poor move by Johnny Football. He’s quickly becoming the most hated player in college football.
