The NCAA off-season has been dominated by headlines about Johnny Manziel's off-field behaviour. Hopefully now it's time for him to dominate on the field as well.

Hello ... Ohio State, Jameis Winston and Dr. Hamlet III.

So long ... BCS, Chip Kelly and an off-season littered with Johnny Football controversy.

Sort of.

The hangover of the Johnny Manziel summer party will carry into Saturday’s first Texas A&M tilt. The Heisman trophy-winning QB has been glad-handed a whopping half-game suspension that gives visiting Rice a leg up on the No. 7 Aggies for a whole 30 minutes. (Good luck with that, Owls, as 40-point underdogs.)

If you missed it — and really, you easily could have since much of the Manziel infamy blended together into one big ugly off-season smear.

Manziel tweeted this. Oh, man! Manziel tweeted that. What? Manziel was charged with disorderly conduct. Manziel overslept while teaching at the Manning Passing Academy. Wait, he tweeted what? He drinks too much. He’s an angry kid ...

On and on and — yawwwn — on and on.
