Coming into this season, the “sophomore slump” question was on everyone’s mind for Johnny Manziel. He came out of nowhere last season and led Texas A&M to a 11-2 season, including a 41-13 dismantling of Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl.

I am a simple man when it comes to television. Anything that is funny,  has to do with sports, or rednecks hunting, catching, or making whatever I will usually watch.
