& this is the only point i'm trying to make about A&M & Manziel.....Talent wise A&M is pretty damn good across the board...I'd say above average on the offensive side. Manziel certainly contributes to that but the collective talent combined with the offensive scheme was destined to put up numbers regardless....with or without Manziel.
We saw it with Art Briles...his system put up numbers in conference USA with Kolb & got that bum drafted in the 2nd round. He takes his system to a better conference with better talent..Hello RG3, the heisman & the #2 overall pick in the NFL.
