Deitsch: Yes. ESPN drives the college football conversation in this country and they've clearly made this story a priority across multiple platforms. He's driving eyeballs, page views and social media mentions, so I'd expect Fox Sports to make an attempt to get a slice of the Manziel pie as a network desperate for college football relevance. Another easy prediction? The next scandal in college football, because there's always one around the corner.
