While many head coaches around college football are reluctant to express their true feelings on Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, former Colorado, Washington and ULCA coach Rick Neuheisel, didn't shy away from conveying his opinions on the topic at all. Neuheisel, in fact, felt so strongly about the Johnny Football topic, he wrote a song about the Heisman winner, singing it on national radio while accompanying himself by his own guitar while appearing on the Dan Patrick Show. Here are the lyrics in case you want to replay the video and sing along: Out in the badlands they call College Station Lives a young Aggie named Johnny Manziel Football and life were to him a bull ride He rode them both like a bat out of hell He shocked the nation by beating the best Flattening out the Tide falsetto The Heisman came calling, the agents came crawling But through it all Johnny Football did ride Now our young Aggie's no longer a hero He was a target of public disdain Another victim of fame and fortune What's wrong with Johnny?' became the refrain Then came the white hats to end his scourge The NCAA falsetto, if you want; drag out the letters When they tried to bind him he said that he signed them And six hours later they said it's okay Now it's behind us, the dust has settled Johnny Manziel is back for a ride Saturday's game was one for the ages Not quite enough to roll over the Tide I hope we all can admire his talents I hope we don't have to witness his fall We might not all say what we did in our 20s But we will all say that we watched Johnny Football Neuheisel might not have been able to cut it as the Bruin's head football coach, but at least he is able to voice--or sing-- his thoughts in an entertaining, creative way.
