Johnny Football's season will start a little late. Quarterback Johnny Manziel was suspended for the first half of Texas A&M's opening game against Rice on Saturday for what the school called an "inadvertent" violation of NCAA rules by signing autographs. The penalty appears to have brought a quick end to an investigation that could have ruined the seventh-ranked Aggies' upcoming season. The school issued a statement Wednesday saying that it declared the Heisman Trophy winner ineligible and that the NCAA agreed to reinstate Manziel after he sits out the first half against the underdog Owls.

While the biggest news as the NBA's trade deadline came and went Thursday was that there was no real big news, several transactions that did take place are making headlines a day later now that the dust has settled. Ronnie Brewer gives the Oklahoma City Thunder another defensive option . He began the season as a starter for the New York Knicks but has been struggling for playing time since the return of guard Iman Shumpert in January. Averaging 3.6 points and 2.2 rebounds, the seventh-year player is expected to be a reserve for the Thunder.

Finally, some new names for an old series between the Lakers and the Jazz. Introducing a most highly unlikely duo for the Jazz: Wesley Matthews and C.J. Miles. Matthews is an undrafted rookie out of Marquette who wowed the Jazz enough in the summer league to get invited to their training camp, and the 6-5 guard made the team when Miles and Kyle Korver were injured. He was the beneficiary of good timing and made the most of it. Matthews found his way into the Jazz's starting lineup and stayed there after the Jazz traded Ronnie Brewer to Memphis.

Losses don't happen often to the Lakers, but there's often something interesting to come out of them. After their 102-94 defeat Saturday against the Utah Jazz, forward Pau Gasol wanted more touches. He made a plea for more action in the post after being asked how it felt to collect 20 rebounds for a second consecutive game. "I'm just being active, pursuing the ball," he said. "I don't get many looks offensively, so I've got to get my offensive rebounds. Otherwise, I'll get five shots during the game.
