Maybe Johnny Manziel could learn a thing or two about self-promotion from Rice linebacker Nick Elder. It was Elder who Manziel gave the autograph motion to during Saturday's 52-31 Texas A&M win. And while Aggie head coach Kevin Sumlin said after the game he didn't see the third-quarter incident, Elder is making sure everyone knows he was involved. Elder took to Twitter via @NickElder1 to say what happened. Elder sent a tweet to ESPN saying "I was the one who johnny was talking too. He said "what's up nick, nice hit." True story." @espn I was the one who johnny was talking too. He said "what's up nick, nice hit." True story Nick Elder (@NickElder1) August 31, 2013 Elder, who is followed by Manziel on Twitter, also sent Manziel a post-game tweet "good game brotha! Make some more noise this year." @JManziel2 good game brotha! Make some more noise this year Nick Elder (@NickElder1) August 31, 2013 The redshirt sophomore finished the game with seven tackles. And yes, he was credited for a tackle on that third-down run for Manziel. As for how the tackle has impacted his popularity, Elder is still trying to crack the 1,000 mark on Twitter followers. That's about 499,000 behind Manziel.
