Thought I'd share an interesting stat. Currently, Johnny Manziel ranks third in the SEC in passing (behind Tyler Wilson and Tyler Bray), but he also ranks third in rushing (behind LaDarius Perkins and Mike Gillislee.)

I expect moar.
He also ranks first in badassness.
I'm not trying to throw a wet blanket on the party. These are wonderful stats but I think we have too many eggs in one basket. I'd like to see us less dependent on one guy. Although I would be less worried if JFF could learn to slide when necessary.
Cue the saying about the only happy Aggie...
Actually thought Manziel did a much better job of trying to get out of bounds to avoid some hits against Ole Miss.
I wouldn't expect him to start sliding anytime soon though.
He is Cam Newton v. 2.0. Only he's Caucasian and not as big.
I didn't see the game Saturday, so I can't speak to this fully, but if his runs aren't regularly designed then I'm not as bothered by his large number of rushing yards. He's a playmaker and that's what he's going to do.
What would annoy the hell out of me is if we design more than a couple of runs per game for him while neglecting Malena, Michael, and Williams. That's what will get him hurt IMO.
6th in the Nation in total offense

crazy thing is that he actually leads the conference in positive yards gained rushing. Unfortunately he's also lost almost 100 yards of some big losses. He actually gained 180 yards rushing against Ole Miss but had several big losses for -50 yards.
Well that happens at quarterback, but especially the way he plays.
