What a joke.
Here is the official joint statement from the school and the NCAA:
COLLEGE STATION, Texas—Texas A&M University and the NCAA confirmed today that there is no evidence that quarterback Johnny Manziel received money in exchange for autographs, based on currently available information and statements by Manziel. Due to an inadvertent violation regarding the signing of certain autographs, Texas A&M declared Manziel ineligible and submitted the following conditions for reinstatement to the NCAA:
• A one-half game suspension for Manziel
• Manziel will address the team regarding the situation and lessons learned
• Texas A&M will revise its future education concerning student-athlete autographs for individuals with multiple items
Based on the information submitted by the university, the NCAA accepted the conditions as put forward by Texas A&M. If additional information comes to light, the NCAA will review and consider if further action is appropriate. NCAA rules are clear that student-athletes may not accept money for items they sign and based on information provided by Manziel, that did not happen in this case.
If last season was any indicator, he wasn't likely to play more than about a half anyways.
