With June Jones at the Hamilton helm, and his comments in that report, it looks like Mr. John E. Football will get another chance.

I think we'd all dearly love to watch him play the game again. I also think we'd all love to see him grow up and become an adult.

Ditto. Pray

What a blast it was to see him dismantle some pretty good defenses. I loved the wild scrambles and miraculous completions. But what I will always remember is when he chased down the La Tech players after the fumble. Ability, passion and heart. Discipline?

Or, perhaps another way to consider the same behavior could be ... maturity.

Some come by it early. Others naturally gravitate toward it.

Some take a path marked by the passage of time ... and the experience of poor choices.

However he arrives, I hope and pray Johnny has finally completed this journey..

Wasn't it June Jones when he was at SMU saying something to the effect that Johnny was playing an undisciplined backyard football style. I remember it was something unflattering.
Meanwhile Johnny was shredding his defense.

And both of those things are true. I do think it would have helped him to come back to A&M for one or two years.

I still don't understand why the media went after Johnny with the long knives and were relentless in their desire to destroy him.

Yeah, he gave them a lot of stuff to write about but they just wouldn't let him be.

All one needs to know is he didn't wear a carrot crap color jersey with female biology diagram on it...

The difference? No coverage of the most recent high profile representative of the second oldest school in Texas on the sideline on national television...

Nothing new here...

Have not watched a professional football game in almost 2 years. I may be on the verge of becoming a diehard CFL fan. Won't touch the nfl ever again, but I would watch the CFL. Unless they decide to make it political, then arena league is my last shot. Or that female league, oops, sorry, I did not mean to make it political by assuming gender. I should have said that gender X league where all the players have a set of the same chromosomes at this present time.

Trading their starting qb was a tiny indicator they want to play manziel.

Ain't it the truth! Cool Gig 'em If they had an Antarctic League and Johnny was playing in it, I'd watch. He is that mesmerizing, just an explosive play away from happening and blowing the lid wide open. I saw it throughout his HS career, and all of us saw it at Aggieland.

Oh, and your chromosome comment made me spit all over my computer, A_F! Warn me next time, will ya?!! Laughing Big Grin

If Moscow had a professional football team and Johnny was their quarterback, I would root for the Russians.

Rest assured, if Johnny was not a white guy from Texas, they would not have been nearly as venomous in their attacks.

Hopefully Johnny gets another chance and the final chapter in his football career is a positive one. Johnny can be another Doug Flutie in the CFL.

I still remember him dodging a defensive lineman that was rushing in. He ended up doing a complete circle around him and made him look like his feet were stuck in concrete.

Yes, I would watch him play. I am getting ready to dump directv and see what I can get over the internet for next season. I bet I could find the CFL somewhere.

So, June - July is the Tiger Cats season. Got it! Wink Gig 'em Perfect... it doesn't interfere with NFL, and it's the beginning of a normal "dead" period for college football. Maybe some recruiting news, but that's it. It would interfere with NBA Finals, and the beginning-middle of MLB, but this is a perfect timeframe... for me, anyway. Cool

My understanding is that you will get a few games on ESPN channels and the rest on ESPN3. At least now I will have an interest in professional football I can stomach. Not that I cannot stomach those xx chromosome types.

AD, you do realize that Coach Ring coaches some of your High Chromasome League, right?

If Johnny is playing, I can almost guarantee that ESPN will try and find a way to cover it. I just feel it! Wink

Yeah. ESPN would be all over his games. While criticizing him the whole time, all the way to the ratings bank.
