As the clock wound down on Johnny Manziel's presumed last home game at Texas A&M (which included 446 yards and five touchdowns), Aggies' fans made known their stance on the reigning Heisman Trophy-winner's career plans.
As Manziel and company downed the ball to kill the clock and ice away a win over Mississippi State, the Aggies' band played "Johnny Come Marching Home" over and over. Bulldogs coach Dan Mullen spent the rest of his timeouts despite trailing by 10 points in the closing minutes, giving the band more reps. And Manziel more time to play to the crowd. And do this:
Manziel gestured multiple times for the crowd to make more noise, and if that's the last thing he ever does at Kyle Field, he'll have gone out in appropriate fashion.
And while it's widely assumed he's long gone for the NFL Draft, for what it's worth, his now-famous buddies appeared to be teasing a potential return:

I can't wait for next season...— Nathan Fitch (@UNCLENATEFITCH) November 9, 2013
That's likely just teasing for the sake of teasing. But fans of SEC teams might want to follow these characters anyway. Also, that's probably why they're doing this. Because they want you to follow them.
