Manziel ban sets Twitter aflutter

The penalty didn't fit the drama, or the saturated coverage. Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel will sit for the first half of Saturday's Rice-Texas A&M opener.

And, naturally, the Twitterverse erupted.

Can we investigate the investigators? @DezBryant got suspended a season 4 lying about a dinner that wasnt a violation & Manziel gets a half.
