Texas A&M let a potential upset against No. 1 Alabama slip away on Saturday night thanks in no small part to a terrible final play call. When the game was over, Jimbo Fisher and the rest of the Aggies got a lot of criticism from college football fans. It was also not popular with Johnny Manziel, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2012.

In a pair of tweets, Manziel left no doubt as to what he felt about Texas A&M’s final play against Alabama.

“One of the worst calls I’ve ever seen in my life. You have one play to beat the #1 team in the country and that’s what we run,” Manziel said in his first tweet.

He then followed that up with “Every single practice you have a goal line period and practice these type of situations. That’s a joke of an ending for the Aggies.”

Manziel wasn’t quite done. An emoji tweet came later and after that, he used a visual to show how unimpressed he was.


The college football world took notice of Johnny Football going scorched earth on Twitter.

It’s also worth noting that while Manziel certainly had his issues in the NFL, he performed well against Alabama. In 2012, Manziel led the Aggies to an upset win in Tuscaloosa over the eventual national champions. The Crimson Tide did defeat the Aggies the following year but did so narrowly, with Manziel throwing for 464 yards in a 49-42 loss.

Manziel can’t suit up for Texas A&M anymore. But Fisher and the rest of the Aggies might think about taking his frustration after Saturday night’s finish to heart.
