I'm just glad we had one decent season when I was there. We had a few good breaks against OU and Nebraska that season.


No more pee paw Sherman to suck things up.

Should, but they'll be games.

LA Tech will make it a scary close game, I've got them covering the spread at least.


A&M's OOC is tougher than it should be for a first year in the SEC. Best of luck to the Ags, sorry to hear about the drama in College Station the other day.

MANZIEL NAMED AGGIE STARTING QUARTERBACK

COLLEGE STATION—Texas A&M head football coach Kevin Sumlin announced today that redshirt freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel will be the Aggies’ starting quarterback for the season opener against Louisiana Tech, Thursday, Aug. 30 in Shreveport, Louisiana. The game will be televised nationally on ESPNU with kickoff set for 6:30 p.m. central.

“Johnny has performed the best at this stage and we will proceed until the season opener with him getting the first-team reps,” Sumlin said. “My policy is simple really; the best player plays. Competition is a great thing and we need more competition at all of our positions. All of our quarterbacks have competed well, and I expect them to continue to push Johnny.”

Manziel (man-ZELL rhymes with yell) hails from Tivy High School in Kerrville, Texas, where he earned Parade All-America honors as well as being named the National High School Coach Association Football Player of the Year. He earned Texas Associated Press sports editors Player of the Year after a senior season that saw the righthander throw for 3,609 yards on 228-of-347 (65.7%) passing with 45 touchdowns and five interceptions. The 6-1, 200-pound quarterback also carried the ball 170 times for 1,674 yards and 30 touchdowns. He even had one touchdown reception and returned a kickoff for a touchdown.

The quarterback competition is between Manziel, sophomore Jameill Showers from Shoemaker High School in Killeen, sophomore Matt Joeckel from Arlington High School and true freshman Matt Davis who enrolled at Texas A&M in January from Klein Forest High School.

This dude was a beast in high school. He put up crazy video game numbers. Apparently he has really turned his work ethic around since he got popped by local PD for fighting and having a fake ID.

Plus he has my favorite nicknames ever. Johnny F-cking Football

Maryland QB C.J. Brown tears ACL, out for season

Maryland announced Wednesday that starting quarterback C.J. Brown suffered a torn ACL in his right knee and will be out for the season. He suffered the injury Tuesday night in a non-contact drill.

“I feel terrible for C.J.,” coach Randy Edsall said in the release. “He's worked incredibly hard to be the starting quarterback of this team. He's stepped up and been a tremendous leader. We'll do everything we can to make sure he gets the best treatment to help in his recovery.”

Edsall said Wednesday that the injury occurred during a two-minute drill. Brown broke through the pocket, and as he was running downfield, he injured his knee making a cut.

“To see the work that he's put in for this season to go away with one cut in a non-contact drill, a cut that he's made thousands of times, is just devastating,” Edsall said.

Brown started five games for Maryland last year. He threw for 842 yards with seven touchdowns and six interceptions. Brown was the team's second leading rusher with 574 yards and five rushing touchdowns.

True freshman quarterback Perry Hills will work with the first team while true freshman Caleb Rowe will work with the second team. Edsall said Tuesday that he likes Hills' command of the offense and his lack of mental mistakes.

“We thought that they were outstanding football players who would have the opportunity at some point in time in their career to help the University of Maryland win football games,” Edsall said. “It just so happens that that opportunity is going to come this year in their freshman year.”

Redshirt sophomore wide receiver Devin Burns will be the team's third string quarterback. Edsall said Burns approached him about the move on Wednesday before the news came out about the severity of Brown's injury. Burns played quarterback during his redshirt season in 2010.

“The excitement that we have and the kind of practices that we've been having the last few days and the things that are taking place, [Brown's injury] hasn't dampered anything,” Edsall said. “We're disappointed and we're upset that this injury has occurred to C.J., but none of the expectations or the enthusiasm, the excitement that we have for this season has been taken away from us.”

Randy Edsall is so screwed

Notre Dame is starting to remind of that 50+ year old guy that still dresses like a teenager. They have a serious identity crisis. A school with a history like theirs should never wear a helmet this hideous.




Wearing a stupid helmet like this doesn't get you recruits like Oregon. Developing players, winning football games and getting those players drafted (kind of like Stanford, another school with great academics) gets you great players. That program has officially hit rock bottom.

maybe 1 loss???




I've been watching OU football for many a moons and despising them for a large part of it, but I've witnessed some really good OU teams in the past 10 years.

This team isn't near as good as some of the Bradford, Jason White, Huepel or even Nate Hybl/Paul Thompson teams.


There are Q's all over the team.


Half of the OU fans are upset with their SR QB
RB position is maybe top half of the Big 12, maybe?
FB is solid
OL wasn't that great last year and has had a TON of losses this off-season
WR has some promising young talent, but shouldn't be considered the pride of the Big 12

---
DL, no one note worthy and booted a starter today
LB, solid but not all big-12
Secondary, lots of repairing to do after so many huge mistakes last year (Baylor, Tech)


Punter/Kicker are good. No great KR or PR.



8 or 9 win team bro
