    Good stuff right there.

    At least Johnny the Aggie, unlike RTR Paul (whose rejections are more compelling and disturbing than Tara Reid’s), has actually been to a frat party

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I don’t recall A&M winning any championships last year, and no the cotton bowl does not count.

    • I don’t think he’s claiming one. He’s just telling the media to focus on what’s important.

      • Always Someone Else's Fault

        Yeah, setting a bar for himself of a championship after spending all off-season chasing beers and co-eds. Smart.

      • mdcgtp

        Well de facto he probably is claiming a double digit win season, which he has QBd his team to in spectacular fashion to his credit. Ultimately, whether one likes or dislikes Finebaum OR thinks Manziel is doing what any other college student would do if given the chance or no is not really the point. I think what most outside observers wonder when we read this is what it says about his judgement and whether his judgement will affect his preparation and performance.

        • You think his judgment has changed since before the start of the 2012 season? I don’t. What’s changed is the level of media attention/obsession.

          • mdcgtp

            I agree with your general point that the media has magnified his actions., and it is hard to know how his judgment has changed because before the 2012 season he seemingly did not have all the off field opportunities that he has had. of course, as we have later learned, his judgment was not so great then and it never affected his on field performance so you may be right.

            having seen enough sports in my lifetime, my prediction is that before too long there will be some disgruntled teammates if he struggles. My guess is at some point the “we were working hard in the Texas heat all summer and he did his own thing” quote will come out…but it may all go swimmingly well for him, which is precisely why the media essentially turned him into a reality TV show…because I have to say, I am not really curious to see how it all turns out.

            • mdcgtp

              I mistyped. I AM REALLY curious to see how this all plays out.

              That’s one possibility. Another is that he cracks under the pressure from all the attention and struggles to maintain the level of on-field success he enjoyed last season.

          • It may or may not change your judgment, but a lot of success in a short amount of time definitely changes how you act on it. Johnny Manziel may have thought the same thoughts a year ago, but now his success/fame empowers him to actually do things he might not have done before. That’s where the difference lies. Most 18-19 year olds want floor seats at NBA games and David Letterman appearances, but few get them….in the long run, that is probably to their benefit.

              And where does that leave The Power of Myth?

              • Manziel on a prototypical hero’s journey…

                • Dog in Fla

                  In our prototypical hero’s journey through the Greek sector occupied by warlord Mack Brown, according to Ferentz’sGum:

                  “Someone threw a shoe at him. Someone else told him to get the fuck out. He left.
                  In Texas politics, they call this a Dubya.”

          • I do. Being a Heisman winner opens doors, as well as legs, that aren’t open other wise. A year ago, he was some no name scrub kid. A 6′ 190 pound kid who may or may not start at QB. He didn’t have the same access to events, and other benefits of fame, that he does now.

            Well, maybe he’d have done all this back then if he had the chance, so his judgment would be the same. Simply put though, the distractions and opportunities to not be as prepared are much greater now than a year ago, while the opposing defenses will be better prepared for him than they were a year ago too.

      MOE: Oh, yeah? Sez who? (This is not for you to judge or even acknowledge, the ongoing grievances between Curly Finebaum and Johnny Philosopher, but is an old blood enmity which only they can comprehend, while we, not being a Finebaum or a philosopher, can’t begin to plumb the depths of it. That is it. We are Georgia fans and he is only a Finebaum, the other is a Philosopher, and the one being a Finebaum, we are not fit to regard him with anything more than sullen trepidation.) Besides beating Finebaum’s favorite team was the championship for Johnny Philosopher tweet purposes.

  4. Always Someone Else's Fault

    Manzeil’s setting up his very own Greek Tragedy for 2013. I do recall taking a few lit courses as a normal 20 year old. I’m guessing that’s one side of normal Manzeil wants no part of, even though he could clearly use it.

  5. Ben

    Good Lord, people. Manziel goes after one of the biggest trolls in CFB, and y’all make HIM out to be the bad guy? Who cares what happens to him or what he’s done this offseason. He’s not our QB; so let’s just enjoy that he and F-baum are sniping at each other.

  6. Lorenzo Dawgriguez

    For me, I will now always refer to him as Paaawl RTR.

    • Dog in Fla

      By the time Paaawl RTR got to Woodstock*,
      Johnny’s twitter followers were half a million strong
      And everywhere there was song and celebration.

      And Paaawl dreamed he saw the bombers
      Riding shotgun in the sky,
      And they were turning into butterflies
      Above our nation.

      If only Paaawl hadn’t gone to Woodstock
      His tweetorial would have known better
      Than to tweetsult Johnny friendapalooza
      Whose return-fire tweets are twabulous.

          It’s a cold-cut crime that the short-haired baloney sandwich girl from Bessemer was only second runner-up

        I see Testicles first bud is in and you two are sharing. Con cuidado amigo. No te quedes en el tubo demasiado largo. ;-)

            Don’t be ugly….. if you spent time on White Beach you would know that there are many tubes to the pipe. But you didn’t know about the gate/bus to Koza….. so did you get off the boat…. ever? Que lastima!
