Texas: We Didn’t Talk To ESPN About Johnny Manziel

Texas Letter ESPN

Remember a few weeks ago when I piggybacked on an open records request at Texas? Someone was looking for documents that might’ve had communication between UT athletics and ESPN concerning Johnny Manziel.

Some believed the Longhorns were feeding intel to ESPN reporters. As you can see above, Texas says they didn’t talk to ESPN.


The University has conducted a Search and has identified no responsive documents for your request. You may Contact Ms. Annela Lopez directly at (512) 471-8300 if you have any questions regarding our findings.

It seems the Longhorns have bigger issues with their football program than JFF. The only disappointment here is that UT deleted Manziel’s name from that official letter. That would’ve been a nice one to frame for the man cave.
