Manziel really doesn't want to be a first round pick I guess.

What about all the other times he's talking to players, shaking his head, rubbing his fingers together expressing something about "money." The kid is an *******, it's clear as day.

Post game comments by his coach indicate that he can't really control him all that much.

Quote:
"That wasn't very smart and that's why he didn't go back in the game," A&M coach Kevin Sumlin told ESPN after the game. "I hoped that at this point he'd have learned someting."

When Sumlin was asked if he was planning on taking Manziel out of the game after that touchdown drive, even before the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, Sumlin said "No."

Pretty simple in my book; you can't talk crap when your team is losing. Oh boy wanted to talk and was punked. It's not talking **** if you can back it up. Manziel did just that today. You don't have to like it or him but the dude can play.

There is no doubt that he can play. The issue is that he's a selfish ********. One that can play.

"It's not talking **** if you can back or up." That's a dumb statement. So, when a boxer knocks someone out and then starts yapping away on top of him, it's not talking ****?

People tune in for what he does on the field. Not his personality. When he gets a TV show I'll *complain**.

With all the money the NCAA makes off of these kids I'm fine with him mocking them.

I mean, it doesn't so much bother me. I'm just calling him an *******, because that is what he is. I wouldn't want him on my NFL team, but he doesn't bother me with his antics as a neutral viewer of a college football game that he plays.

The guy's an immature, self entitled, silver spoon up his ass, arrogant jackass that will bust out of the NFL if he doesn't grow up a helluva lot between now and then. Guys that blow off their head coach like that are the types of guys that don't put in the necessary work, don't learn the things the coaches need them to learn, and eventually build a rep for themselves to the point that other coaches won't take a chance on them.

Hell, look at VY. You think he's not more talented than whoever the Bills are trotting out at QB? Or the 3rd stringer for half the teams in the NFL? Players build a reputation for themselves and it follows them, for better or worse. Anyone in life, actually.

He's 20 yrs old. The current Heisman Trophy winner. Comes from a rich family. Every single one of us would think we were the **** of the walk in that situation. I'm sure he's a jerk in person but just remember, winning cures everything.

Against Freaking Rice bro. Rice. We're talking about freaking Rice! He's probably going to kill Sam Houston next week too. Let him do it against top s.e.c. team this season before we crown him the second coming of Joe Namath.

Its always talking **** whether u can back it up or not...matter fact, it looks worse when u win....ESPECIALLY when you're expected to win b/c you have nothing to gain by doing it. Im with the other guy in this thread in that i dont see anything special about his play. Keenum put up monstrous numbers in this system too.....with less talent around him.

He won the Heisman last year. He can play, are you really doubting that?

Just because I think the kid can play & enjoy watching him play, doesn't mean I think he's the second coming of anybody.

So get yer panties out of your wad & get those SEC nutts off yer chin & just watch it be what it be.

Does the Alabama game not count? Did it to them in their own stadium.

Keenum also did it in a weaker conference but let's just ignore that right?

Never said ignore it, just saying that we've seen qbs put up numbers in this system and similar systems over the years before and that doesnt make him a special nor great player in my eyes..unless of course your saying that those 10- 12 tds and other stats he accumulated against those little sisters of the poor teams dont count. without those numbers he probably doesnt win the heisman so he benefited just like Keenum did...maybe not as much but he still benefited.

Edit: just under 1/2 of his total tds at 22 came against non-bcs teams...

Oh No

Not this **it again.

I had hoped that Aggie was immune to VY syndrome, figured they of all people would have put up a better resistance to this horrible affliction.

Please please please; if the Texans don't draft Manziel - please just accept it and move one. Pretty please.

I'm not saying he didn't benefit. You're the one claiming "less talent around him". I'm merely pointing out that Keenum played in a WAY weaker conference. 345 yards against the best defense and top tanked team is what cemented Maziel's Heisman...that and facing 6 ranked teams last season.

How many Heisman's did Keenum win in his 6 years as an NCAA QB?
