For those of you who aren't sick of all the coverage Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has been receiving, has CBS Sports got the gimmick for you. You know who you are, Aggies fans and folks who just can't keep their eyes off a train wreck (or a heckuva good college football player).

The NCAA tournament, celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, is desperately hoping to get to this weekend's Final Four before another scandal breaks. The odds right now in Las Vegas, where the Pac-12 Conference recently held its postseason championship, stand at about 50-50. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday have been public relations disaster days for a control-freak NCAA that micromanages the tournament down to the kind of drinking cups (NCAA logo only) that can be carried to press row.
