The verdict is in on Texas A&M star quarterback Johnny Manziel, who will be sitting out the first half of the Aggies' opener against Rice following an NCAA investigation into allegations that he was selling his autograph to memorabilia dealers. Columnist Dan Wolken of USA Today joins Homerism for a podcast to try and make sense of the ruling and offer some insight into the broader implications for the NCAA and college sports.
Dan and I cover:
- The rationale behind suspending Manziel at all;
- A no-win situation for the NCAA;
- The deterrence effect of the ruling, or lack thereof;
- How schools will view the decision;
- And more.
