Johnny Manziel is one of four quarterbacks to beat Alabama in the last three years. He has more pressing issues to worry about, but he was able to give some insight on how the Ohio State Buckeyes should approach the Crimson Tide in the College Football playoffs.
In between getting fined for missing treatment, Manziel told the Cleveland Plain Dealer the Buckeyes must first be respectful.
“You absolutely give respect where it’s due,” Manziel told cleveland.com this week, “and they’re a program that has won numerous national championships and been at the top of the SEC.
“You respect them, but you don’t fear them.”
“Turnovers is the easier answer to give,” Manziel continued. “What’s important is to be extremely efficient and take care of the little things. Don’t make things any worse than they already are being out there against a defense that’s extremely good and fast. Take what’s given to you and live to fight another day.”
Manziel beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa in 2012, and went on to become Johnny Football the brand and Heisman Trophy winner.
