Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Has this guy ever been right with his predictions? I think Bohls does his homework and is a good writer, just not as a prognosticator.
Johnny Manziel is a run-first QB who is also a proficient passer. He's is subject to injury each and every time he takes off running. He has already injured a knee. Now that everyone knows about him, the coaches of the TA&M opponents will scheme to stop him.
I'm an old Sooner who loved the wishbone. The thing that killed the wishbone was that other teams would tackle our QB on each play and none of our QBs were healthy at the end of the season. I think Johnny Football will go the route of the wishbone QBs and unfortunately will be nursing injuries next season.
I've seen this basic idea posted by several people. I don't really follow the logic. I get that 2012 was the first time teams saw Manziel, but it's not like a running QB is some sort of mystery. It seems like this notion that in 2012 SEC teams weren't able to "scheme" for Manziel because he was a first year player is a bit hollow. How many SEC teams had never previously had to "scheme" to stop a QB with good running ability?
We had a month to prepare for him and look how much good it did.
Yes, their QB has a lot of experience at being very, very average.
I wonder if he like practically everyone else said West Virginia would win the B12? We really don't know how a team will perform from one year to the next. Lots of variables. So all that can be measured is past performance (a different group of young men, coaches, chemistry, etc.) and potential. Fun to guess though...I guess...
