Steelers Larry Foote and Mike Adams renew NCAA rivalry over Johnny Manziel suspension

Larry Foote questioned whether Mike Adams was actually luckier than Johnny Manziel when it came to NCAA sanctions. The former-Buckeye in return questioned the former-Wolverine's ability to question him in the first place.

The Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Mike Adams feels Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel got off lucky with his half-game suspension over his highly publicized autograph controversy.  After all, Adams knows what it's like to be on the other side.

It didn't take long for a former Michigan Wolverine to find an opening to throw his own twitter jab at the former Ohio State Buckeye, who was referencing his penalty for a violation involving tattoos, something as trivial as Manziel's autographs.

Division rivals don't have to actually play against each other to honor the rivalry, which Adams wasted no time in doing at his own defense.

Foote has become quite the comedian this off-season, poking fun at Jarvis Jones for being 'soft', and sending pics of Jones with Foote to Cincinnati Bengals linebacker James Harrison making sure he knew Foote had found a 'new best friend'.

Boys will be boys, and obviously their Black and Gold blood is thicker than the Red and Blue water under the bridge; but a half-game suspension is some awful shallow water.
