Johnny Manziel knows how to create headlines and it should be no surprise that he rubs off on people around him. Proof you ask? Last night, while sitting in the front row of a Texas Rangers game, Jonny Manziel's girlfriend Kyndal Kyaire burned down the Internet.

Manziel, who was last known to be dating model Sarah Savage, clearly has a type. Not that anyone blames him, but Manziel seems to prefer tall brunette models and Kyaire fits that mold. Kyaire is a model, waitress and generally hot person who recently competed in Maxim's Hometown Hotties 2014 competition. There is some confusion about where the self proclaimed Cowboys fan hails from, originally hails from Sacramento based on multiple profiles online.

Since leaving A&M to prep for the draft, Manziel has been training in San Diego, though returned home to take in a tilt between his hometown Rangers and the visiting Mariners. The couple was on camera repeatedly, and looked very familiar with one another. While we don't officially know that the couple is together, the signs are certainly pointing that way. We will find out for sure come May 8 when Manziel will be all over first round coverage. A guy like Johnny Manziel isn't showing up in the green room without some serious arm candy. We should have our answer then.

With the UConn Men's basketball team destroying most of the remaining brackets out there, we figured it was high time to find out more about Kevin Ollie's wife Stephanie Ollie.

After Kevin Ollie spent more than a decade travelling the NBA circuit, he came home to his college roots in Connecticut taking over for the legendary Jim Calhoun. Fortunately coming home to UConn was an easy transition for the family. Kevin and Stephanie Ollie had a home in Glastonbury, CT for the past nine years, despite Kevin travelling for the majority of that time. Kevin and Stephanie met at UConn in 1995 before he left for the NBA and she graduated in 1997. She currently works as a cardiac unit nurse at a Hartford area hospital.

Despite the travelling professional career, the couple stayed in Connecticut for the benefit of their two children (older son Jaden, and daughter Cheyanne) could maintain a normalcy to their schooling.

The family's dedication to UConn, and more importantly UConn basketball is a strong connection. The family recently wrote a check for $100,000 to aid in funding the UConn Basketball Development Center. The center is expected to cost $38 million in total, raising nearly $24 million to date in donations and pledges, including the Ollie's. Kevin Ollie addressed the donation, saying:

“I thought it was very important to show my commitment to the UConn Basketball Development Center. I have had the incredible opportunity to be a member of the Husky family, and that experience has influenced every part of my life. I want to be an example for all former UConn basketball student-athletes, who have had the privilege of playing for two Hall of Fame coaches, to join me in supporting this facility. It will help ensure the long-term success of the programs that all of us helped establish.”

As a 7 seed that's just punched a ticket to the Final Four, Kevin Ollie has just inserted him into the proud history of Husky basketball family he clearly cherishes. The Huskies head to Dallas next weekend for a one in four shot at a national title.

Joining the likes of Lauren Tannehill and Amanda Enfield, Archie Miller's wife Morgan Miller is the latest WAG to receiving passing coverage on TV but have the Internet go wild. After her husband Archie's Dayton Flyers advanced to their first Sweet 16 since 1984, the TV coverage honed in on Morgan Miller and her, now famous, Dayton High Life t-shirt. The TV viewing audience will likely be treated to much more of Morgan during the Sweet 16 round, especially if Dayton keeps winning.

The former Morgan Cruse attended NC State, where she was a track and field athlete. During a visit to the college before she was enrolled, Morgan and her father took a peak into the gym and saw Archie Miller (the brother of Arizona coach Sean Miller) shooting around - they said hi and went on with their day. Little did Morgan Cruse's father know that they had just introduced themselves to Morgan's future husband. Well, actually, he sorta did seem to know, telling his daughter afterwards that, "I think I met the guy you’re gonna date next year".

Archie Miller and wife Morgan Miller celebrated their ten year wedding anniversary in August, all thanks to a chance meeting in a gym and a blind date setup by a friend. The couple has one daughter, Leah Grace, born in 2004.
