Johnny Manziel wasn’t the only college football star to autograph memorabilia, it seems. Two websites – Good Bull Hunting and Busted Coverage – claim someone on eBay is selling lots of items signed by South Carolina star Jadeveon Clowney and Louisville Heisman Trophy candidate Teddy Bridgewater. According to eBay, the items signed by each are “certified,” which one could interpret as “legit.” So, are there photos of Clowney and Bridgewater signing these items, too? Look at how many signed Bridgewater helmets are for sale. Is there video?
And – gasp! – were both stars allegedly paid?
I wonder how much time bloggers will spend online looking for autographed items by USC star Marqise Lee, Georgia’s Todd Gurley, Alabama’s TJ Yeldon and Clemson’s Sammy Watkins that are for sale.
Looks like the depleted NCAA investigation office will be quite busy in the coming days/weeks leading up to the season. Or perhaps the inept organization will react like an overwhelmed teacher: Fine, those guys signed things, what’s done is done, NO MORE SIGNING EVERYONE OR I’LL REALLY START TO PUNISH PEOPLE!
