Ex-Coach Neuheisel Pens An Ode To A&M’s Manziel

In case you missed it, former Colorado, Washington and UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel has picked up his guitar and penned a song about Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, his on-field exploits and his off-field troubles.  Better yet, Neuheisel agreed to sing the song — penned to the tune of Marty Robbins’ “El Paso” on Dan Patrick’s radio show yesterday:


Neuheisel's Tribute Song to Johnny Football 9/16/13


The lyrics?  Why sure.  Here ya go:


Out in the badlands they call College Station

Lives a young Aggie named Johnny Manziel

Football and life were to him a bull ride

He rode them both like a bat out of Hell


He shocked the nation by beating the best…

Flattening out the Tide

The Heisman came calling, the agent came crawling

But through it all Johnny Football did ride


Now our young Aggie’s no long a hero

He was a target of public disdain

Another victim of fame and fortune

“What’s wrong with Johnny?” became the refrain


Then came the white hats to end his scourge…


When they tried to bind him he said that he signed them

And six hours later they said it’s OK


Now it’s behind us, the dust has settled

Johnny Manziel is back for a ride

Saturday’s game was one for the ages

Not quite enough to roll over the Tide


I hope we all can admire his talents

I hope we don’t have to witness his fall

We might not all say what we did in our 20s

But we will all say that we watched Johnny Football

UK’s Brown-To-UCLA Picking Up Steam

Kentucky co-defensive coordinator Steve Brown may soon land as the new D-coordinator at UCLA.  But I’m not sure he’s any closer to the job today than he was a week ago.

On February 10th, The Orange County Register reported that Brown had interviewed for the job on Rick Neuheisel’s staff.  That report led to Chip Patterson of posting the rumor later that day.  At that point, the UCLA blog picked up the story two days later. posted a link to BruinsNation yesterday.  And John Clay of The Lexington Herald-Leader posted a link to BleedBlueKentucky’s post today.

Got all that?

The Orange County Register posted a story on February 10th.  That story went through the blog cycle and now pops up five days later at The Lexington Herald-Leader’s site under the link: “Steve Brown to UCLA picking up steam.”

Whether or not Brown’s candidacy is picking up steam in the real life or just on the internet remains to be seen.
