Andre Williams of Boston College is a great player. #1 running back as far as I am concerned. He can take a lot of punishment and he just wears on people. Always breaking tackles and has enough speed to break away.

He led the nation coming into this game against NC State, he has 288 yards rushing so far.

Florida State game just started. First defensive snap for the Seminoles, Christian Jones unblocked TFL. Yea, should probably block him.

Hopefully I am getting ready to watch the next Head Coach of the Houston Texans beat the USC Trojans. Always impressed at how well David Shaw has the Stanford Cardinal so well prepared in all 3 phases of the game.

I am stoked for A&M vs. LSU this weekend. Watch party at my friend's house, big ass TV... it's going to be a blast.

I might be nuts, but I think A&M takes this one. Defense makes stops when it needs to, and actually played a lot better vs. Miss St. than the record indicates (garbage time points for Miss St.) I think if A&M hangs 42+ on LSU A&M wins.

I think A&M will win too. LSU's defense is not as great this year than they have been in the past and their offense is not very inventive. I don't think they keep pace.

As long as they are still Aggies and haven't become Texans you're in good hands.

I don't see his talents translating to the NFL very well but you have to really appreciate everything that Connor Shaw does for South Carolina. That dude is a hoss.

It's a crime that people are considering McCarron for the Heisman, but not Shaw.

Well we can scratch that after today, despite McCarron having a decent game.

It's Winston's to lose, but the allegations against him could have an impact. Braxton Miller will get a big bump after today.

Andre Williams got hurt today and didn't put big numbers up for BC and that's all the reason voters need to keep him out.

I wouldn't be surprised if the final three is Winston, Miller, and Jordan Lynch. Maybe Shaw or McCarron gets invited as part of a career achievement campaign.

I keep hearing that Texas A&M has one of the best OL in college football. I have to say in the last 2 weeks the A&M OL has been abused and manhandled by LSU and Missouri.

A&M's OL is overrated by people who want to downplay how good Manziel is, but it's still pretty good.

LSU and Missouri are both really good in the trenches though, make no mistake.

A&M's real problem is that their playcalling can be really obvious at times, and if you can take their WRs off their routes and keep Manziel in the pocket it takes away their explosive plays.

Their playcalling has been bad all year. They had trouble protecting Manziel, but still ran the ball effectively with the RB's tonight. Yet they called 60% pass plays in a game that was a one possession game the entire night. Mizzou threw the ball more effectively, but still leaned on the run game to carry their offense to a win.

This has been a problem for A&M all season.

Mizzouri just took away their screen and short passing game and batted balls down at the line and it was easy. Manziel was also inaccurate with the short stuff toward the end of the game, once running around when Evans was open, throwing late and high to him, then behind on a screen pass that Mizzouri had read anyway. Almost missed Labheart running wide open on a crossing route but Manziel finally saw him after running around in a circle and after Labheart was doing jumping jacks.

I was watching with my family and nobody understands why Manziel is even an NFL prospect at all. He was having trouble just getting the ball past the defensive line. I wouldn't draft Manziel in the first 3 maybe 4 rounds. I don't see anything about him that says NFL. Not interested at all. Mike Evans looked frustrated with the inaccuracy last night.

TAMU will find someone else at QB equally as good or better at actually playing QB rather quickly if I had to guess. Their scheme gets people open and makes it easy on playmakers. You could see that last night, even when balls were getting batted down at the LOS.

But he's the most exciting player in college football.... if you enjoy watching that backyard football crap from your qb....i personally enjoy watching a qb masterfully orchestrate an offense....the chess game of it all...the defense countering ..the qb counters back.....

But the bolded is why i dont put much weight into his or really any spread qb's numbers....often times the scheme does most of the heavy lifting for qbs in those types of systems and its easy as hell to look good as a qb in those types of systems.

As I sit here watching Russell Wilson vs Drew Brees on MNF, I'm thinking Johnny Manziel vs Aaron Murray.

LOL Manziel is Russell Wilson just because they are similar height?

They are literally not comparable in any way besides their height and that they are both athletic.

I don't buy that Murray is the next Brees either but at least they are somewhat similar.
