The pomp and circumstance surrounding this Alabama/Texas A&M game is going to be ridiculous. The whole world is going to be watching to see if QB Johnny Manziel can do it again. Can he possibly beat the juggernauts known as the Crimson Tide for a second time? The world will get a really close look for sure, as Johnny Cam is going to be operating for CBS. The concern that we have is that Manziel and his mates aren’t used to this type of pressure on the national spotlight. Alabama is used to it. The team has played in big SEC games, SEC Championship Games, National Championship Games… there is no scene too big for this team to conquer. Those who want to back the Tide think that the defense is going to overwhelm Manziel and the Aggies and ultimately give the champs their due. After all, Head Coach Nick Saban has been preparing for this game all offseason long, and he had a bye week last week to do work as well, and we all know what the track record is there for games coming off of a bye.
However, there are a few things that we have to remember as well. Alabama’s offense looked horrid in a 35-10 win over the Virginia Tech Hokies last week. Remember too, that Texas A&M not only went on the road and beat Bama last season, but it also destroyed the Oklahoma Sooners in the Cotton Bowl. Manziel is the bad boy of college football right now, and it would be fitting to think that he can go out there and dominate against the Crimson Tide for a second straight season against all odds. We know that Manziel can talk the talk, and he proved last year that he can walk the walk against the best of the best as well. But can he do it again? We think that there is going to be a great opportunity to do just that on Saturday. We’re one of the few that are taking Texas A&M to pull off the home upset.
