There’s a possibility that Tuesday night in the Chick Fil A Bowl will be the final time that we will see the compelling Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel in a collegiate game. He and his Aggies team will take the field against the Duke Blue Devils for the annual New Year’s Eve night bowl game.
Most of the focus is on whether or not Manziel will take off from College Station after two exciting years and a Heisman Trophy. Other than a national championship, which most believe the program doesn’t have the pieces to capture one in place around Manziel anyway, what really is there left for the redshirt sophomore to accomplish?
From Manziel himself, we haven’t really heard any sort of commitment as to whether he will stay or go, nor have we even heard a timetable as to when he will even make a decision.
That might be because he doesn’t have one himself, because he has no idea what he wants to do yet:
“Nowhere even close (to making a decision) … I haven’t had any more time with the bowl practice we had at College Station. Didn’t get a chance to really do much,” he said.
This makes complete sense, as Manziel has always been one that marches to the beat of his own drum, and that’s what we love–or hate–about him. He does what he wants, when he wants, so why should his NFL decision be any different?
