The GoodThe A&M OffenseLet me just preface this article by saying at about 10:20 Saturday morning I e-mailed my good buddy Matt who also is as big a college football fan as I am stating Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M would beat Alabama outright.  I still have the text if you think I’m lying. Manziel has been the most exciting freshman at any position in college football in a very long time. Saturday he had to play flawless in order for A&M to win. And flawless he was. Manziel threw 2 TD’s, ran for 92 YDS, passed for 253 YDS and completed 77% of his passes.  Eleven of those passes were thrown to WR Ryan Swope who totaled 111 YDS and 1 TD.
