Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin was at SEC Media Days in Hoover, AL. on Tuesday, and here were some of the quotes from the man who will now always been known as ‘Johnny Manziel’s head coach’.

Anyway, here we go( special thanks to GigEm247):

On choosing the starting quarterback for the South Carolina game: “Depends on the guy…have a feel for what the guy can handle & don’t have a feel until we get in that environment. Whoever the (A&M) quarterback is (at S. Carolina), I’ll probably be his only friend at that point (in terms of hostile environs). I understand there’s not going to be another Johnny Manziel, that’s part of it.We’ve recruited very well to a system we believe in….. ” [In other words, the starting QB may change during the South Carolina game]

On Johnny Manziel: “I understand there’s not going to be another Johnny Manziel, the way he played the game…That’s all part of it…Now, does that mean that we change offensively? Maybe. Does that mean that we changed offensively for him? That might be the case too.”

On the SEC: “This league is as tough from Sunday to Friday as it is on Saturday… Not only is it a line of scrimmage league, the teams that win consistently have depth on the line of scrimmage.”

On recruiting: “You look at where we are in the West in terms of depth, that’s what we’re recruiting to….If we had gotten our brains beat out like everybody thought, I don’t think recruiting would have been going as good as it is….It’s easier to get guys’ attention when going to play at South Carolina on the SEC Network with the world watching…. I think we’ve laid the groundwork in recruiting to still be successful.”

On the pressure in the SEC: “In this business we don’t have time for a bunch of rebuilding years, there will be another guy standing up here pretty quick.”
