Manziel is doing what most famous 20 yr old kids would be doing in this situation. He's probably been this way most of his life. His dad is an oilfield guy and his grandfather was a cockfighting legend. This is a way of life for his family. It's nothing new, but it doesn't sit well with the Aggies.
With that said most Aggies would sell their souls for another win against Saban and Alabama at Kyle field this yr. Dont count on it, I'm sure you will have your built in scapegoat. (Manziel) When in truth the A&M program would still be a relative little sisters of the poor without Manziel.
BTW, didn't Manziel get arrested last yr before he became the starting QB at A&M? What's changed? Manziel winning a Heisman? A&M becoming relevant in college football? There's a trade off, and winning conquers all. Even if Aggies wont admit it. You cant win big in sports with a chiorboy mentality that some/most Aggies want/seem to have.
