    ^^^This!!! He really is better than advertised. Can he declare for the draft after his freshman year? He deserves all the credit for the win tonight. Kudos to him and Coach Sumlin.

    I Once Saw Johnny.....

    I'm not ready to say all that. Particularly without mentioning his offensive line. Not that we have all world pass rushers, but on those incredibly impressive pin point passes from Manzell, he didn't have a Bama receiver within 5 yards of him. And when he did have success running early, his big uglies were downfield doing work.

    The kid played a great game, but I'm not crowning him. His linemen deserve much more credit than they're getting

    His linemen didn't get hit by three bama defenders, bobble the ball straight up, regain control, and still find the open receiver for a touchdown after scrambling away from the pressure. The kid is a baller and he can't leave the SEC west too soon for my liking.

    All true but by that standard, Mark would not have won.

    The big uglies never get the credit that they deserve. Johnny Football will lose two outstanding offensive tackles next year and the sure handed Swope; however, I'll bet he still puts on a good show.

    He is a RS freshman and has to stay one more year. His HS graduating class has to be three years out before he can declare. I'm not sure some of his skills translate all that well to the NFL...

    Yeah man, I was kidding. I dread the Tide having to face him 2-3 more times. He is the real deal and whatever accolades he receives, he deserves.

    To Johnny Manziel:

    You are so awesome and fantastic and great, you should definitely go pro after next year. Don't listen to your coaches they are just selfish and want to keep you around for themselves. Heck you should consider actually petitioning the NCCA to go pro right now.
    Due to the current workload, the light at the end of the tunnel will be temporarily turned off.
