I don't think that it's really Sumlin that's to blame. Clarence McKinney is not as good an OC as Kingsbury was, I think. Him and Manziel had a kind of rapport I do not see with McKinney.

Sumlin did rely on the run game more than before, and I liked that. A&M has an SEC quality running attack if it actually deigns to use it. Not using it in the LSU game to help out Manziel drove me nuts.

In all truthfulness I'm ready to have a true pocket passer in the Sumlin system in Kyle Allen. I wanna see a guy throw a few more strikes in the system, not screens and little dumpoffs every other passing play.
