Johnny Manziel’s Herculean Effort Not Enough as Texas A&M Falls To Auburn





Johnny “Football” Manziel did all he could in this one. In a monster game, he racked up 454 passing yards, four passing touchdowns and for 48 rushing yards and another touchdown, completely putting the Texas A&M Aggies on his back despite their defensive struggles on the evening.

However, his enormous offensive output simply wasn’t enough. The Aggie defense couldn’t stop a nose bleed in this one as the Auburn Tigers quarterback Nick Marshall torched them with his arm and especially his legs, running for 100 yards and two touchdowns.

This is very reminiscent of the Aggie loss to Alabama. Manziel did everything he could on the evening in a spectacular offensive performance, but it simply wasn’t enough. The uber-talented freshman receiver Mike Evans had a huge night grabbing 11 balls for 287 yards and four touchdowns. He will be playing on Sundays as well as Manziel, as the 6-foot-5 freshman has become Manziel’s favorite target.

This game was a dandy. A good old-fashioned shoot out. Once again, Manziel came out on the losing end, though, despite leaving it all out there for the Aggies. I really don’t see how this hurts Manziel’s chances at repeating as the Heisman trophy winner. It certainly spoils the Aggies National title hopes, but in A&M’s two losses, Manziel has thrown for 464 and 454 yards yards with a combined 10 total touchdowns. Ridiculous stats against the top defenses in the SEC and the nation.

Manziel is making his case as not only a Heisman repeat candidate, but as a top-flight potential NFL quarterback. The SEC is as close as it gets to pro football in college, and he is making these defenses look silly.

On a night where everything went wrong for the Aggies, the special one, Johnny Football, kept them in it. It still wasn’t enough. Regardless, after this performance, he has etched himself in the pantheon of college football legends.
