They had no proof so he got off. The same way the NCAA let Scam Newton off. You need proof to uphold the suspensions in a court of law. You can't just suspend someone because he's white and it's his colors turn.
This may be a no win situation for the NCAA and Texas AM.
I agree with Negrodamus that he is receiving special treatment due to his stature and popularity--part of which would be very different if he were black. When and if they uncover more proof...and you know many will be looking...they will be forced to take more action and the team and school may really suffer. But they deserve it if they allowed the guy to be out of control.
If they find no further proof then they lose because they punished a guy for nothing. The idea that Manziel showed up to all these signings just for fun is too much for me to buy.
There are many stories about Johnny's upbringing that lead me to believe he will self destruct if he doesn't get help. I hope the NCAA and Texas A&M help the guy through tough love. So far the only folks who have treated him as an adult was the Manning Camp...kicked him out for violating rules...imagine!
