The Johnny Football era is over at Texas A&M.

Sophomore quarterback Kenny Hill threw for 511 yards and three touchdowns Thursday night, leading the Aggies to a dominant 52-28 season-opening win against the South Carolina Gamecocks.

After the game, Johnny Manziel tweeted to congratulate Hill, bestowing upon him the nickname "Kenny Football."

While the tweet was obviously meant to congratulate Hill, Gabe Bock from TexAgs radio tweeted that the new Aggies quarterback isn't a fan of the "Football" nickname. 

If he keeps playing like he did against the Gamecocks, he'll earn a new nickname soon enough—hopefully one that he actually likes.
