    Bob and Mike Stoops said Johnny Manziel is the best they've ever coached against.

    http://www.aggiesports.com/football/...f2b58e081.html
    Just ask Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, who said Manziel is the best quarterback he's coached against.

    "Absolutely," Stoops said. "Because of not only throwing the football, what he does with his feet is just incredibly difficult to handle."

    Manziel became the fourth consecutive Heisman Trophy winner -- Mark Ingram, Cam Newton, Robert Griffin III -- to win their ensuing bowl game. But his performance may have been the most impressive. He set an FBS-record for rushing yards in a bowl game by a quarterback with 229. And he nearly became the second FBS player to throw for 300 yards and rush for 200 yards in a game, finishing with 287 yards through the air.

    Former Dallas Cowboys VP of player personnel and senior NFL.com writer Gil Brandt tweeted afterwards, "Best performance by [a] player I've ever seen."

    The Aggies came out of the locker room nursing a slim, one-point lead. But from the start of the third quarter, Manziel was nearly infallible. In four consecutive drives to start the half, A&M scored four touchdowns, covering 325 yards in just 27 plays.

    He made perfect downfield throws to Ryan Swope and Uzoma Nwachukwu. And he continued to keep the OU defense on its heels with highlight-reel runs whenever he could break containment on the edge.

    He was the catalyst for turning a competitive game into a laugher, answering any and all questions about the Heisman Trophy winner's readiness in the leadup to the season's finale.

    Oklahoma defensive coordinator Mike Stoops, who has been in the coaching business since 1986, heaped some lofty praise on Manziel in the postgame news conference.

    "[He's the] best player I've ever played," Stoops said.

    And he still has three more years of eligibility.

    Manziel was amazing. But Oklahoma's offense couldn't do a thing. If they could of kept Manziel on the sidelines for a awhile by sustaining drives maybe they would have had a chance. Really impressive win for the aggies on both sides of the ball. They could be top 3 in next years preseason poll.

    They will likely be just as good if not better next year even with some of the starters they are losing in the draft.

    If Stoops was serious, you've gotta remember some of the college quarterbacks that he's faced during the season and in bowls: Peyton Manning, Donovan McNabb, Vince Young, Matt Leinart, RG3... and yes, Tebow.

    I was really frustrated at what our defense allowed Manziel to do in that first game back in September. By the end of the game, I knew he was eventually going to be something very special for A&M. I've never seen a breakout of that scale though.

    This may be worthy of its own thread at another time but I think it's funny they called these guys once in a lifetime players at the time but they've all played in the same conference at the same position in the last five years.

    ^And at least two of them were recruited to play different positions.

    If only they could give him a nick name that reiterates that.

    Manziel is a rare athlete, his Cotton Bowl performance was outstanding. Nobody has any idea where Texas A&M would be without him, he is pretty much the entire offense. I don't even remember an option QB that ever ran the ball more times than the rest of the team combined like Manziel did against Oklahoma.

    Hopefully everybody outside of the SEC watching Alabama dismantle Notre Dame now realizes why Johnny Manziel won the Heisman....
