PLAYERS: Johnny Manziel

Photo courtesy of: Getty Images The Heisman trophy is what every sportscaster talks about every Saturday. You constantly hear players having ‘Heisman worthy performances’. Despite his public controversy early in the season, Johnny Manziel has a huge chance at winning the award for the second straight year. The talk began in Texas A&M’s third game of the season. The stage was set when No. 1 Alabama ventured to College Station to seek revenge. It was dubbed the game of the year, and it was just that. Johnny and the Aggies rallied against the defending two-time BCS national champion. Manziel’s performance in that game was outstanding. He was up against the best team in the nation, and he put up huge numbers. I say he was up against Alabama because, let’s face it, Johnny Manziel is Texas A&M. He had 562 total yards and five touchdowns against the Tide. His next all-star performance was against Ole Miss this weekend. Johnny Football carried the Aggies. He suffered a knee injury early in the game which put everyone on alert. Thankfully he came back on his injury and clinched the win for the Aggies on a bum knee. Photo courtesy of: Stacy Revere/ Getty Images Manziel triumphed in a comeback victory in Oxford. He completed 31 of 35 passes and had 470 total yards, as well as two rushing touchdowns. Manziel did have some mistakes though , throwing an interception in the end zone and a fumble in the fourth. However, the defending Heisman trophy winner did scramble for a conversion on 4th and 7 that led to the game tying score in the fourth. Johnny Football has an unbelievable calculated unpredictability about him. He takes chances and makes outstanding plays that put points on the board. Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin said, “The thing that makes him different is he’s one of the greatest competitors I’ve been around. He takes some chances, yeah. He plays a little on the edge, but that’s what makes him him.” This season alone Manziel has completed 131 of 179 passes for 1,835 yards and thrown 14 touchdowns. He has rushed 438 yards for 5 touchdowns. He is unstoppable. There are still big games ahead, and I believe that Manziel will continue to amaze sports fans everywhere. There is a reason Manziel is called Johnny Football, he is one of the greatest players out there and has high hopes to become college football’s second two time Heisman trophy winner.

Texas A&M Football: Can Texas A&M contain Auburn’s four headed rush attack?

This Saturday for the first time in more than a year, a ranked Auburn (5-1) ventures to College Station to try and take down the beast that is Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M (5-1). Auburn finished last in the SEC in total offence last season, so some would say that this game is laughable. The thing people need to realize is: they went from that to having the fifth ranked offence...

Auburn coach: Newton, Manziel share rarefied air

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn knows the luxury of having that rare quarterback who can take over games and abuse defenses with his arm or his feet. For Malzahn, it was Cam Newton, an electrifying Heisman Trophy winner who led the 24th-ranked Tigers to the 2010 national championship. The new and maybe even improved version of Newton is No. 7 Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel, an equally...

BATON ROUGE, La. -- It looks like bigger does mean better in the competitive Southeastern Conference - not just in terms of television ratings, but on the field as well.

Still, there were questions...
