Yeah, really ... if they don't get him on this one, it's just a matter of time before he gives them another reason ... the kid's a PR nightmare and a TMZ goldmine, .

Too much too soon, most people want to see this kid fail anyway.
Not that he is helping himself in the slightest.

Re: Texas A&M QB Manziel Under Investigation

Don't look now, but it appears to be all Tiger's fault ... .



The NCAA is investigating Johnny Manziel over accusations that he sold his autograph, ESPN reported last night.

In light of the reported investigation, a small detail from Wright Thompson's ESPN The Magazine profile of Manziel looks much more important.

According to Thompson, Manziel is so committed to signing autographs because he was once snubbed by Tiger Woods as a kid.

Manziel was supposed to meet Woods at the Isleworth Country Club clubhouse in Florida, but he never showed up.

Now he signs every autograph he can so much so that his therapist told him to limit his autograph signing to 30 minutes per week, according to Thompson

From the ESPN profile:

"So Johnny signed everything, no matter how much he grumbled and cursed with a pen in his hand. Whenever he'd see his parents, they'd always have a carload of things to autograph. They hated it, and he did too. But they seemed compelled by manners, and obligation, and one autograph didn't seem like that big a deal."

Players are allowed to sign autographs, they just can't make money off of them. The only thing that's clear right now is Manziel motivated by the childhood trauma of the Tiger snub, reportedly signed a ton of autographs.

ESPN reports that the memorabilia market was "flooded" with an overwhelming amount of Manziel autographed items last March.

At the time, Texas A&M released a statement saying Manziel never accepted money for them. But the sheer number of items raised eyebrows.

Conspiracy theory time: ... somehow this is all tied in to the fact that Manziel beat Alabama, whereas Hill has not, so the NCAA-mafia is out to discredit Johnny ... yeah, that's the ticket ...

An A&M buddy of mine seems to (optimistically) believe Johnny will weasel out of it, and he may ... but it sure doesn't look good with that cell phone video.
