The Texas A&M football team is 5-2 on the season and effectively out of the BCS title race. The Aggies would be a legitimate contender for the national title in 2014 if Johnny Manziel returns to Aggieland for his junior season.
The 2013 version of the Aggies are a very young team. There are only six senior starters on the 2013 depth chart.
The sophomores and juniors that are taking their lumps on the Texas A&M defense will be better in 2014 with an extra year of experience. An extra year in the weight room will do wonders for the freshmen starters like defensive tackle Isaiah Golden and middle linebacker Darian Claiborne.
If Manziel returned for his junior season as the quarterback for A&M, then the Aggies can expect to have an explosive offense once again. A high scoring offense, coupled with an improved defense that features more experience and depth, would make the Aggies a preseason Top Five team.
Manziel is projected to go in the first round of the draft and is expected to declare for the draft after the 2013 season. If he remained in Aggieland, it would represent a huge boost to the A&M program and a monumental surprise to college fans everywhere.
This is a look at what the average Aggie football fan would give up for another season of Johnny Football at quarterback.
