The 14 coaches, who can’t vote for their own players, tabbed Georgia’s Aaron Murray as the first-team SEC quarterback over Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel (second-team) and Alabama’s AJ McCarron (third-team). It certainly is rare to see a Heisman Trophy winner take a backseat to anyone, but when it is even more surprising when one considers that the SEC voted Manziel to the 1st-team at he end of last season and AJ McCarron to the 2nd-team.

Texas A&M Has Your Back Johnny Manziel

In a lot of the stuff that has been printed about Johnny Manziel his parents (at least his dad) has been pretty up front with how he feels about the school.

Can The Dawgs Make Another Championship Game? 2013 Georgia Bulldogs Preview

Some people blame the play on Aaron Murray. Some blame it on Mark Richt. Some people just blame it on God.
