Johnny Manziel will miss about 30 minutes of playing time this season as a result of his highly publicized NCAA investigation, which wrapped up Wednesday. Manziel was suspended for the first half of Texas A&M’s opener against Rice on Saturday for an “inadvertant violation” resulting from several autograph-signing sessions.

In light of the NCAA’s slap on the wrist, we decided to list the top 10 things that are longer than Manziel’s suspension.

10. An episode of Game of Thrones

9. Five-Hour Energy (10 times as long!)

8. A workout with Richard Simmons

7. Three calls to Geico

6. Amount of time this man was dead before coming back alive

5. Average wait time at the DMV

4. Halftime at the Super Bowl

3. Ross and Joey’s game of toss on Friends

2. Cooking time for mother’s meatloaf

1. Nick Saban’s Process

The UNC - S. Carolina game was suspended longer than Manziel.


@scottysols Good point, I wonder if they really had proof of lightning or if they just suspended it because it smelled like rain?
