The big question this week is if you were Kevin Sumlin, who would you rather have under center to lead your team? Would you take Johnny Manzeil or Kenny Hill? It’s Money Manzeil or Kenny Thrill. Manzeil knows how to have good time off the field, but Kenny Hill knows how to behave on it. These guys are both talented QBs. Is it safe to call Texas A&M QBU? Can we call Kevin Sumlin the quarterback guru of the SEC?

Pre-freshman Lenny Carollo chose Manzeil “because Kenny Hill has only played one game.”

Freshman Reese Cowen voted for Kenny Hill because he just doesn’t like Johnny Manzeil.

Sophomore Austin Means, a Johnny Manzeil fanatic since Johny Football’s debut, said, “Johnny Football, obviously. Johnny Football is my twin; he’s playing the game one hundred, like your boy over here. Steady stunting! Johnny for Heisman, M.V.P.!”

Junior Grant Gallaspy favors having some Manzeil magic on his team, noting, “Johnny Manzeil…yeah, he won the Heisman.”

Senior and SPS starting quarterback Ryan O’Krepki gave a player’s perspective on the topic. He chose Manzeil, saying, “Manzeil, because he played for two years and Kenny played for one good game. Manzeil’s the man.”

SPS football coach, Joshua Gast, chimed in as a former SEC football player, choosing neither Manzeil nor Hill. He picked Ryan Tannehill, the wide receiver turned quarterback before the Johnny Manzeil era. Gast’s reasoning was this, “He’s one of the most underrated passers in the NFL today. Kenny Hill actually resembles him a lot, and I think Johnny Manzeil is actually third in line out of those three quarterbacks. I’m a big fan of the pocket passer, and Ryan Tannehill is very composed and has great accuracy with his game-plan. So, I would take Tannehill out of those three quarterbacks.”

That’s one write-in vote for Tannehill, one vote for Hill, and four votes for Manzeil. It’s plain to see that when it comes to A&M quarterbacks, the man on campus is Johnny Main Man Manzeil.
