However, Manziel did in fact pad his stats against SMU, South Carolina State, Louisiana Tech, and Sam Houston State to the tune of 13 TD's and 2 INT's. He also had 9 rushing TD's in those games.

In SEC play, he threw 13 TD's and 7 INT's and ran for 12 TD's.

In 2013, he padded his stats against Rice, Sam Houston State, SMU, and UTEP. In those 4 games he threw 11 TD's and 2 INT's. He ran for 5 TD's.

In SEC play, he threw 26 TD's and 11 INT's and ran for 4 TD's.
yeah, had to edit that out....forgot that L tech game got delayed. In any event, all these guys benefited from playing the "weak sisters of the poor" as he says. You also can't penalize a guy for beasting the teams on his schedule b/c he has little control over that. It's even more ridiculous to take that stance when comparing 2 prospects from the same conference like Bortles and Bridgewater.
