Texas A&M Football: Why Aggies Are Poised to Dominate SEC for the Next 3 Years
Texas A&M was supposed to be the whipping boy after they made the difficult transition from the Big 12 to the SEC West.
After tonight, however, it looks like it might be the Aggies doing the whipping.
Texas A&M pulled off their first big win in their new conference as they took down No. 1 Alabama 29-24 in what will surely be an instant classic. To put this win in perspective, they pulled off this upset on the road in Tuscaloosa when LSU failed to do so at home and at night.
The difference in this game?
None other than Johnny Football.
Johnny Manziel is only a redshirt freshman, but he's already gaining legendary status in College Station. He's led this Texas A&M team that was supposed to become the next Vanderbilt or Kentucky of the SEC West to an 8-2 overall record and 5-2 against SEC teams.
Will Texas A&M Win a SEC Title in the Next Three Years?
And both the Florida and LSU losses could have easily gone the other way.
Beating a team like Alabama on the road shows that Manziel and the Aggies are ready to take on anybody.
Manziel was able to elude the Alabama defense time after time. Some of his escapes in the backfield would have made Harry Houdini proud.
Of course, the SEC has seen QBs that can make things happen with his feet. Florida's Tim Tebow comes to mind.
But Tebow never had an arm like Manziel has. Stacking the box and forcing Manziel to throw doesn't work because Manziel can make the big throw.
In a division dominated by defense, Manziel is going to give defenses like LSU and Alabama heartburn for years to come because he's a redshirt freshman.
Head Coach Kevin Sumlin has brought his offensive genius from Houston. Clearly, the powers that be in the SEC West are going to have to up their game to keep pace with this team.
In short, we won't see any 9-6 wins with A&M involved. Teams are going to have to develop their offenses because depending on your defense to stop Johnny Manziel as he gets better and better isn't going to be a viable strategy.
Before this season began, no one believed that Texas A&M would be able to compete with the big names in the SEC West. Now, the Aggies could run away with an SEC West title as soon as next year, and don't be surprised if Johnny Football takes home a Heisman before his career at College Station is over.
It may only be a matter of time before we see Johnny Manziel and the Aggies playing for a national championship.
