Our goal at MrSEC.com is to keep you abreast of the most important and/or most interesting stories from all across the league each day. Sometimes that means posting a long-form column. Other times it means giving you a quick synopsis of a story and then providing our opinions on its topic. Still other times it simply means providing you with a quickie headline link.
Yesterday afternoon, CBSSports.com’s Doug Gottlieb posted an outstanding column that focuses — initially — on Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. But using his very own missteps as a college athlete as a jumping off point, Gottlieb proceeds to punch some very large holes in the growing belief that athletes are exploited souls. Then, he brings it all back around to Manziel for the big finish.
Gottlieb’s column deserved more than a headline link today. And it’s points are so strongly made that it needs no additional commentary from us. We just wanted to make sure you saw it and read it.
It’s good work.
