08:41 AM ET 08.25 | With Texas A&M seven days from the season opener, there's been little to suggest Johnny Manziel will be out of the lineup Saturday against Rice. An industry source briefed late last week by a high-ranking A&M official on the NCAA investigation into Manziel's eligibility says the school had ???no plans??? to sit the Heisman-winning quarterback because of its confidence in the case. The NCAA is looking into whether Manziel received money in exchange for his autograph, as first reported by ESPN. A&M hasn't reduced Manziel's practice reps, hasn't readied another quarterback as if it were preparing to lose Manziel and the coaching staff hadn't been notified on Manziel's status as of Friday, though the last part is not uncommon in an NCAA probe. A&M compliance director David Batson declined comment when reached Friday.

Should have cut the NCAA in on some of the action.. if he would have.. none of this is an issue

With NCAA's usual speed, they should have a decision right after A&M plays the last game of the season.

With their speed, it will be closer to 2016.

Swept under the rug.

I sincerely hope he gets to play, but not if it means he gets away with breaking the rules.

Players like Manziel is what makes the college game so intriguing and diverse.

You can bet that someone is getting paid off to look the other way.

He's workin' at it. Started by getting a new girlfriend. She was formerly one of the most popular courtesans in the College Station stockyard/red light district.

Now now.... College Station and aTm is perfectly fine. Just because Kyle Field hosts a livestock-freshmen mixer every September is no reason for disparaging remarks.
