I am shocked to learn that the folks in Oklahoma would mock a Texas A&M quarterback for any reason.
Fowler Toyota in Norman, OK, knows a good publicity ploy when it sees one, and snapped into action when Johnny Manziel’s autograph-for-pay controversy broke. Here’s their “Johnny Savings” commercial that’s currently running on local TV. As Jerry Seinfeld would say: “Now that’s funny … because it’s real.”
Meanwhile, Steve Urkel checks in with his opinion, because why not?
Benching Manziel for the 1st half of opener guarantees the highest 2nd half rating for a college fbgame this yr. #NCAA stayzzz pimpin'

Johnny Manziel did not get off easy. Having to watch an entire half of Rice football is a very harsh punishment.

If Manziel gets away with only a 30-minute suspension, I want that kid's autograph.

Johnny Manziel's one-half suspension is not NCAA's only reaction to the matter. They also revoked two of Terrelle Pryor's tattoos for cause.

Lets be real: A&M should have benched Manziel for a half for flying to see Drake.

Remember, Johnny Manziel's lawyers look like this: http://t.co/H0Y4AX979K Next time you see a lawyer in a 10-gallon hat lose, let me know.

The guys @sportsbook_com say flurry of bets have come in on Manziel for Heisman. Move him from 12/1 to 6/1. Braxton at 3/1, Clowney at 5/1.

Wait, so Yasiel Puig got Johnny Manziel's suspension?
