07:24 AM ET 06.19 | What might have been for Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. Even as [Manziel's] recent tweet about wanting to leave College Station is widely dissected, it's only now becoming clear just how close he came to departing the school and town before the "Johnny Football" sensation ever occurred. A&M initially suspended Manziel for the 2012 season following his arrest in College Station's Northgate bar district last summer, a source with knowledge of the situation told SportsDay. Manziel, entering his freshman season after sitting out the 2011 season as a redshirt, would have felt it was necessary to transfer if the suspension wasn't overturned on appeal, according to the source. Manziel won the appeal, allowing the Heisman Trophy winning season.

Two b'ball threads, and three SEC threads. Apparantly the only news in CFB is from the SEC.

We have been reduced to rehashing bits and pieces of many-moons-ago stories. Would expect a "Moo St Involved in Cam Newton allegations" thread any minute now.

I expect the basketball threads will be hijacked and become SEC threads too. It always seems to happen that way.

Manziel will have a very average year this season as teams adjust to the little runt. Manziel will also be a target and might be taken out early on and carried off the field. Plus Manziel ain't ever playing pro football so he better get a degree if A&M offers anything good beside crops and farming and cattle management and breeding.

Dude please ...

A&M is not running a Nebraska offense with designed runs for Taylor Martinez ... A&M has a legit O line, legit running backs and a legit passing game. Manziel scrambled when plays broke down and that's when people saw how elusive he is. No one had an answer for him in those situations. A&M will run even more Air Raid in 2013 and if they execute correctly Manziel will have little reason to scramble.

Cuidado, amigo. They might investigate you on "insider information".
