Cotton Bowl Open Thread

Submitted by LSAClassOf2000 on January 4th, 2013 at 8:18 PM

For those interested, the Cotton Bowl just started on FOX (Channel 2 in SE Michigan). Texas A&M (10-2) versus Oklahoma (10-2), and Johnny Manziel just went Johnny Football on the Sooners for a TD if the call on the field is not overturned...

in this thread, or I wouldn't have known the game was on.  But saying he was beat 3 times in a row is a little alarmist.  And that last completion was great coverage, just a very well thrown ball that the WR made a play on (but really dropped - it shouldn't have been called a TD)

The game ain't even over, and Manziel has 485 total yds and 4 tds—22/34 for 287 and 2 tds through the air, and 198 yds and 2 tds on 16 carries running the ball. As a freshman.

In what bizarre universe of yours is that "overrated?"

another annoying ohio player, fuck him. Pisses me off the way he enjoyed those 2 SCar plays they showed.

I enjoyed ohio not being able to go to a bowl cause they're cheating assholes

It is becoming rather clear that, when Oklahoma attempts to defend against the run, they develop hysterical blindness to Johnny Manziel and/or Ben Malena, as evidenced on that option play. Either that, or this is the somewhat typical Bob Stoops "Expect The Expected" scheme.
