Love him or... aww who am I kidding? How can anyone hate this beautiful, wonderful boy? Johnny Manziel is a terrific human being who loves life and just wants to be understood by a country that sometimes doesn't embrace his monkeyshines the way that it should.

Anyway, Manziel sat out the first half in accordance with the wishes of the NCAA, and then came back in and had a solid (if not particularly spectacular, although 3 TDs on 7/9 passing is preeeeettyyy good) second half. A&M didn't really need his help to win, but on the other hand if you're giving up 31 points to Rice you better hope that your offense is clicking on all cylinders. The highlight of the game was Manziel taunting an opposing player by pretending to sign an autograph. God, I love that kid.

I loved how ESPiN is now doing his Heisman campaigning.

He's their fall back plan in case Clowney doesn't work out.

Will only get worse as they roll out the ESECPN network.

Isn't that just ESPN?

He is the gift that keeps giving. Did you see that "money" celebration he did with his hands after one of his touchdowns as well? I feel like he's openly laughing at the NCAA that he got away with this.

Buckeyevstheworld's picture

He did the same celebration last year.

Still though, to celebrate like that is a conscious decision, and after all this huge controversy, even if it was something he did before...

Buckeyevstheworld's picture

True.

Not to mention, talking trash to Rice? Come on dude.

Kids a machine, if he played the entire game he would have probably set a record for TD passes in a game.

Buckeyevstheworld's picture

He wouldn't have played the entire game.

True, but still pretty impressive. But it was Rice, and at least one of the touchdowns I saw had a lot to do with YAC

He's smart as A box of crap but the boy has stones the size of Mount Rushmore. Personal favorite Was rubbing his thumbs together in money gesture.

Lou Holts has made quite a few negative, and even funny comments about Manziel. He even said something about how ESPiN loves his actions or something or another. I wish I could have saved the video of it but it was pretty funny! You can always count on Lou to tell it like it is.

You can always count on Lou to tell it like it is.

If that statement were true, then Notre Dame would be looking at a 1208-0-0 all time football record.

Buckeyevstheworld's picture

ND doesn't count. He'd pick them even against the '92 Cowboys.

Fucker is cocky. Someone's gonna knock his block off. If not this season, somewhere in life. 

Buckeyejason's picture

True, he is cocky. But he can back it up with his play.
Half the players in college football are cocky..why does it bother everybody when this guy is? 

BUCKEYES BABY!

Knarcisi's picture

He is way over the top compared to other guys. What he pulled today after all the negative attention in the offseason ...he has his coming. He never really bothered me until he showed how arrogant he was today. 

Buckeyejason's picture

I didn't see what he did until recently..yea he was def overboard. A little humbleness won't hurt him.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Knarcisi's picture

You can tell from Sumlin's comments that he has about had it. 

Alice in Aggieland's picture

The commentators on ESPN2 just called out JM for his immature on-field behavior AND Kevin Sumlin for letting Johnny troll at will. Satan is probably wearing a parka right now.

HighBallAce's picture

I don't see how the NCAA CAN'T suspend him for 1 entire game for his actions against Rice. That's completely uncalled for! If they don't suspend him, that really does prove just how much of a joke they are.

I can't believe I'm rooting for Saban and company on 9/14, but I am.

Did you root for them against M*chigan, and ND?

Hovenaut's picture

Nah....didn't watch either game, wasn't interested.

Ill never root for Bama unless its against Scum.

BUCKEYES BABY!

vitaminB's picture

I will never root for bama in any instance.  I don't care if they were playing a football game against satan's squad for my everlasting soul.  I don't mind the heat.

RedStorm45's picture

Stats say 3 TD's.  where are you seeing 4?

Johnny Ginter's picture

weird, they initially listed 4. thanks for the heads up

Not really.

I will say this, Sumlin is not making the decisions on his playing time (and I am not a conspiracy theory guy).  You don't walk by your own coach and completely ignore him as he's ripping you without someone else's backing, such as the chancellor, the president, the A.D., high dollar donors, etc.
I like his play, but damn, how about an just an ounce of humility.

setman's picture

Yeah, it does put a possible new slant on things. That maybe Sumlin had considered suspending him for his conduct in the off season, and got "overruled." If that in fact did happen, I hope that if it does blow up and sanctions against A&M result, that Sumlin isn't the one left holding the bag.

I don't blame him for talking crap to the Rice players. I wouldn't want to take any crap either. Especially when my team is running it up on your team.

jlsohio's picture

I don't blame Manziel for acting like a thug, I blame his coach. In the words of the great Paul Brown..."I don't blame you son, I blame the guy that hired you"...

Riggins's picture

"Thug"..."Coach"...Anyone else hear that dog whistle?
Gotta stick up for Sumlin.  Some people just can't be helped (Manziel). Sumlin sounds like he is counting the days until Manziel declares for the draft.
And FWIW, I didn't downvote you.

Sumlin is really in a bad spot if you think about it. Sumlin is not Urban, his fortunes are very tied to the success of Johnny Goofball for the next couple of years.  Johnny brought that university a Heisman and beat the best team in the country last year finishing 11-2.   His fan base will go nuts if he's benched.   This kid gave the finger to the NCAA and got away with it so it wouldn't surprise me if he would do it to his own coach.
Its about winning and whether we like him or not, he is talented.   The target on his back keeps getting a bit bigger so we'll see how that Alabama game goes this year.  I'd hate to be on his O line that game.
I don't want either team to win that game because now I can't stand Johnny.  So, here's hoping the final score is 2-0 with A&M getting the safety.  If there aren't fights on the field that game, I'll be very, very surprised.  'Bama ain't Rice.

I pray that Ohio State gets to play against A&M this season just so Shazier can say hi.
