For the Texas A&M Aggies the regular season is over, with a 10-2 record. And for quarterback Johnny Manziel, or what his friends call heim «Johnny Football,» he is waiting fot
two things. Where the bowl game is going to be played, and the Heisman Trophy event in New York. And I will be suprised if he did not win it. Manziel has done enough to have
his name etched on the bronze statue that is given out to the most outstanding player in college football. But no freshman has never won it. Manziel number stand up toe to toe with the other contenders like Geno Smith of West Virginia and Kansas States Colin Klein. But both quarterbacks lost games down the stretch while Johnny Football contiuned to win out. Plus,
he did beat number one Alabama in Tusscalousa. I should give him the heiisman right there. Now the only thing that might keep Johnny Football from winning the Heisman is that the Aggies had two soft teams to close out their season. Although they won both, it comes down to is head to head competition. But i think Manzeil had done enough to win it.
The ofensive strugles of the Dallas Mavericks have them playing around the .500 mark. Enter Derek Fisher, the former LA Laker, Utah Jazz, and Okc Thunder player has signed
to be more a mentor to the young point guards thay they have. One player that has already gets what Coach Rich Carsile is selling is O.J Mayo. Who has been a steal in the NBA
this year. He had 28 points to lead the way for a Mavs win over Detroit. Right now, teams around the NBA are plotting and planning their next moves. O.J. Mayo has proved that
he belongs on this Mavs team. And if he continues to play lights out, he maybe here longer than a year.
Things that happen at a Dallas Cowboys game. Pokes fall behind early, then they play catch up. Defense shows no defense. Right guard Doug Free gets called for numerous penalties. And someone will do a dumb play that will cost the Pokes the game. However, there are some things that will give you some hope. The Combination of Tony Romo and Dez Bryant is clicking. Two touchdowns in the win over Philly. And one of them was the Cowboys record breaking touchdown pass by Romo. 166 touchdown passes, breaking the record held by Troy Aikman. And runnimg back Demarco Murray returns with a 86 yard performance in the win over the Eagles 38-33. With time running out on the season, the Cownboys know that they have to win out, and hope some playoff contenders fall in front of them, for the Pokes to get into the tournament. Steelers, Bengals, Saints, and Redskins make the last part of this season a big challenge.
College football has everything set for the holidays. Lots of bowl games, don’t say there are too many of them. Bama and Notre Dame plays for number one. But plenty of games to follow your school.
