07:13 AM ET 08.15 | Aggies Nation waits, but the program doesn't have that luxury. As the daily vigil surrounding the eligibility of Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel continues, the Aggies are also working to identify his backup. If Manziel has to sit out some games or is declared ineligible for part or all of the 2013 season, the competition between junior Matt Joeckel, redshirt freshman Matt Davis and freshman Kenny Hill takes on enhanced meaning. A&M and reportedly the NCAA are looking into allegations that Manziel sold thousands of his autographs, which would violate NCAA rules. NCAA experts have said A&M may have to withhold Manziel if questions linger when the season opens Aug. 31 against Rice. Jim Darnell, Manziel's lawyer, expects him to play.

Maybe he can use some of the idle time to work on his school work

It's never a good sign when a player's lawyer is quoted as having an opinion on his playing status.

Let him play agianst Gump......make the thing interesting. Beyond that, this little mighty-mouse has lost all intrigue in my eyes.

Backup might be first string sooner rather than later..

I'm sure the NCAA will have this whole thing investigated by opening day ... in 2016.

Manziel is like Lindsay Lohan: entitled, delusional, messed up, into self-medicating. Both have kooky fathers.

It may be a good idea to have another QB ready in case (what was his name again?) the 1st string is held out.

If johnny touchdown is not found ineligible for a season, this just shows the NCAA is joke.
