Texas A&M Aggies:

*Aggies freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel, 19 is still facing charges after being involved in a fight.

Manziel was arrested by College Station police in the Northgate bar district on charges of fighting, failure to identify himself and carrying two fake licenses.

Manziel, a Parade All-American at Kerrville Tivy High, competed with sophomore Jameill Showers during spring drills for the starting job. Showers, who was Ryan Tannehill’s primary backup last season, appeared to lead the battle in spring practice, but head coach Kevin Sumlin and offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury declined to name him the starter.

Coach Sumlin was made aware of the situation and is still gathering all of the facts. “We’re gathering all the facts and will handle the situation once we have all of the information.”

The Americans know their men’s Olympic basketball team will look much different than the one that captured gold four years ago in Beijing. Three of the most important players from that team were unable to return, but the carryovers keep talking about being better now than they were then.

*There won’t be any more “Big 3” in Boston! The “Big 3” of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen won’t be playing for Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers after Allen, decided to take a pay cut and take his threepoint shooting skills to South Florida.

Allen will join the “Big 3” of the Miami Heat this season. Allen took less money for a chance at winning another NBA Championship. Allen played for the Celtics for five seasons. The reigning NBA Champions could only offer Allen the mini mid-level, worth about $3 million a year.
