    For the record, I never hated them, and I though they were a great addition to the league.

    I was actually very suprised at how well they did in their first year...and a LOT of that success was due to Johnny 'Football' Manzeil...

    I'll say the same thing I said last year about this time regarding Matthieu: it's amazing how much mileage a kid can get from a catchy nickname.

    I couldn't stand Texas A&M when Fran was their coach. But now I am fine with them.

    Re: Texas A&M

    Personally i think the nickname is really juvenile. I also think the player(manziel)is overhyped and overrated. Johnny football is going to learn that defenses in this league dont stand pat,they make adjustments. Yep johnny football may have set the world on fire this year but its not gonna get any easier for him next year and with the defenses in this league making the necessary adjustments,i have a feeling he will come crashing back to earth this year. I look for him to be exposed as an average qb on a below average team next year. The aggies are losing a lot of key personnel this year. I wouldve thought a lot of you bama folks wouldve resented the brash,disrespectul way they bragged after they got lucky(and thats all it was,pure luck)and won in tuscaloosa.

    Since you mentioned it before I will mention in again. The Aggies aren't Auburn; for better or worse they are something unique. Might as well say we are just the University of Texas in different color uniforms. Scheese...

    Texas A&M

    Texas A&M may have been similar to Auburn in the sense of a little sister school, but they have done something Auburn will never do: step out from under big brother's shadow. They will become their own man while Auburn still eats the scraps thrown by THE University of Alabama.

    Isn't Johnny Football what they called Anthony Michael Hall in that movie he starred in, in the 80's? I can't remember the name of it, but I remember the movie. In the movie he was supposed to be a heralded qb do it all coming out of high school into college...and that's probably where they got it from.

    As far as the nickname, Manziel even thinks it is funny. It started on texags about a year ago and just kinda took off! When he played the first game it really took off.

    I have no problem with the nickname when done by fans, etc. My only real problem is, like with any other adopted nickname, the media wears it slap out, ad nauseum. Cough, cough, Honey Badger.

    An apt description...
    I didn't care for the nickname, but what can you say... He won a Heisman as a Freshman...
    He earned it.
    Outstanding athlete, danged lucky to boot.
    Now he might become MR. JFF. I respect his accomplishments.
    (Now lets see them try to duplicate next year... NOT...)
