We have a QB on our roster that plays in the mold as Manziel..Would y'all like to see Blake Sims used more often just to give our offense a change of pace & give the D we're playing against something extra to think about..
I still think Marcus Mariotta would beat JM out as a starter in Oregon. He definitely gave us fits. The reason aTm lost to UF and LSU wasn't because they have a faster defense. It was because aTm didn't turn the ball over. Johnny is better than he was at the beginning of the season and turned the ball over 3 times in each of their 2 losses. UA turned the ball over 3 times and Johnny didn't turn it over at all. We still had the opportunity to beat them and should have. A&M was very fortunate and lucky on some tipped, and battered balls to get 3rd downs. Everything was going their way and we just couldn't catch a break. That's the way it goes sometimes. We don't have the luck of dang Notre Dame.
Alabama doesn't feature a running QB, but by seasons end, the Alabama QB is all beat up playing behind the best OL in the nation. Would there really be anymore risk with an athletic QB?
Whoever said he didn't have the physical characteristics to play at Texas, he looks about the same size as Colt McCoy. Difference is Johnny Football is better, and probably not a wimp like Colt in the national championship.
Texas was considering Manziel as a safety!
Mack has owned the state of Texas in recruiting for a long time. He has missed on qbs for awhile. In case you guys didn't know, there was a seismic shift in the state of Texas recruiting world on Saturday! It was shifting slowly with the sec thing, but now that recruits know we will do more than compete, we have become the preferred texas school!
Perhaps you guys can close the gap after a few successful seasons assuming UT still struggles, but I don't think you will ever top them. That is like the Cowboys/Texans or the Bama/Barn debate. The Texans have been more successful over the past few years and the Boys are regrettably stuck with Jerry Jones until he croaks. However, Dallas still owns 70% of the Texas fan base as does the Tide (guesstimates). You do have a great QB and coach so your future is bright!
