After about a year of waiting, the college football world got what they wanted. It was the most anticipated rematch in recent memory. Johnny Manziel vs. Alabama gave us everything a fan could want, and more. The game began almost as an exact replica of last season’s battle in Tuscaloosa. Johnny Manziel made some serious moves to give his Aggies the early 14-0 advantage. I wondered if Verne Lundquist was going to bring back the “lightning in a bottle” reference like last season, but it was a no go. After Alabama realized they had seen this script before, the Tide reeled off three touchdown scores in a row before A&M scored again. Despite the 42-21 lead to begin the 4th quarter, Alabama needed to recover an onside kick to seal the victory. Known for it’s defense, Alabama gave up 628 yards of total offense to Texas A&M. The Tide also committed 12 penalties that pushed them back a total of 104 yards. Between Johnny Manziel’s 464 yards passing, 5 TD’s and the Tide’s penalties, I would venture to say you will not see those numbers outside of a video game very often. That got me to thinking about video games, and how easy it is to rack up insane numbers with your favorite players. I can’t confirm nor deny Manziel actually plays Xbox, but I found this comical image of what his controller might look like: (Credit to Tom Brady’s Ego)   Granted, I only see a few buttons you could really press during the Alabama game. However, you would have to press down on all four letter keys to get those yards and touchdowns he produced. Despite the loss, I wonder how much he used those “Party” toggles? I’d venture to say he has to replace those a lot. Whether you love him or hate him, he can still do this:   And you probably can’t.
