What is it with the SEC and their religion themed depictions of their favorite football programs. Just a while back we were treated to a chalk drawing of Nick Saban and Paul “Bear” Bryant in the places of Adam and God from the sistine chapel at a Tuscaloosa bar. Now SB Nation’s Good Bull Hunting has given Johnny Manziel a similar treatment.
This computer graphic depicts Johnny Manziel as Jesus, and Alabama head coach Nick Saban as Satan as the two arm wrestle with Kyle Field in the background. The satan version of Saban has a head set around his neck and looks like someone branded him with the Alabama logo on the arms. Those are some little details easily overlooked in this graphic.
Of course Johnny Manziel is in his holy white uniform. Given his on-field antics and off-field incidents one could say it is a little bit of a reach to depict Manziel as Jesus.

In all fairness Texas A&M fans can’t be accosted for this. During the Dallas Mavericks’ 2011 NBA Championship run there was one of these making the rounds on the internet of Dirk as Jesus arm wrestling LeBron James as satan.
