Let's hope there are no repercussions to appearing in a music video that the artist intends to profit from. These student athletes are placed in a tough spot: they are tremendously popular and yet they have all these people looking for ways to make a buck off of that popularity. Add to that they are just barely out of adolescence and thus most likely fairly easily manipulated. Bottom line is, I just want to see the best players play. It would be a shame to see a technicality prevent that from happening!

John, you are really knowledgeable in this area so I thought I would ask you the question: is there any chance this created a problem for the Ags in terms of a NCAA violation? As you know, the rules prevent the use of a player's name or likeness for private business use. No doubt the artist, Granger Smith, is selling that song on albums, itunes, etc.

Great article, John. As usual, your insights are spot on.
All the stars aligned this year for A&M. A lot of it has to do with Mike Sherman. He was not the best of coaches at the collegiate level, but he was a heck of a recruiter and knew how to spot talent. He secured one of the best O-lines in college football and he is also the reason Johnny Manziel came to A&M. As luck would have it, the SEC West is not quite as powerful this year as in year's past, thanks in part to Bobby Petrino (cannot say why AU is down). Add to that the Aggies have a coach whom players would run through walls for to please. Sumlin is a phenomenal motivator and strategist.
Most spread offenses would probably not work too well against SEC defenses. But the one at A&M has fared very well. In fact, but for a could of mistakes A&M would be undefeated right now because they came very close to beating LSU and Fla. In fact, they could well beat both those teams in a rematch. Why? Because as the season has progressed, Manziel has improved exponentially (remember he is just a red shirt freshman). In Manziel the Aggies have a QB who uber nimble and quick and athletic, and thus able to pull off what many QBs could not: he can make the spread offenses work against the best SEC defenses. In that regard, you can say Sumlin is the luckiest coach in America. When he arrived at A&M he already had in his back pocket, through the efforts of his predecessor, precisely the ideal instrument to make the spread work against 'Bama and the other SEC powers. He had Johnny Football.

To all of ya'll who said before the season that A&M would have a hard time adjusting to our great league: care for a piece of humble pie? The Aggies have been a near perfect match for the SEC from the get-go!
