I totally agree - these coaches are of a competitive nature that is beyond my comprehension, and their what motivates them is Machiavellian in nature.

You also see college hoops coaches drag their asses back with their tails between their legs after failing at the pro level, and that's why I have such grudging respect for coaches like Jim Boeheim and Mike Krzyzewski.

I see it as no different than any professional who wants to compete at the highest level possible. I'm a lawyer who argues cases in the federal courts of appeals. Would I take the opportunity to argue cases in the Supreme Court if it was offered to me? Absolutely.

A&M is killing themselves with penalties

In his defense, he was never a great HC to begin with. He's a great OC though.

True - although I guess the only way moving NFL -> NCAA is a step up is if you go from Asst. to Head Coach.

A&M will win a national championship in the next few seasons with Manziel. Count on it.

I think they have an opportunity but I personally don't think it will happen.  I just don't see Manziel doing what he does every single game in a 13 game season.  All of his running around, he is bound to throw 2 to 3 interceptions scrambling around like he does.  I think now people have seen him for an entire year and will be able to scheme him better now.  Also, they lose a lot of big time players from this years team.  They are losing their best 2 linemen, one of which is the best lineman in the country, also the defensive lineman that was so good and Ryan Swope, their best receiver.  Oh and he loses his offensive coordinator, Klif Kingsbury, who is going to Texas Tech to be the head coach.  It could very well happen but with those losses as well as others, coupled with the fact that he will only be there 2 more seasons, I just don't see it.

Well - since they are now in the SEC, they probably get a shot with one loss, and if they get in the game they win it automatically... it's not that much of a stretch.

I predict this to be Johnny Football's best moment. I think they tail off in the next two years and his legacy will be mired in a bit of "what-shoulda-been" disappointment.

I agree that it's not a stretch but I just personally don't see it happening.  And I agree with you StephenHero.

As a guy who would like Archie Griffin to remain the only 2x Heisman winner, I would like to agree...

I just read Johnny Football's wikipedia page - this kid scored 77 TD's his senior year of high school, and something like 160 over his HS career. Nuts.
