Texas A&M regent wants school to rename field in honor of Johnny Manziel

Kyle Field is undergoing a huge makeover this offseason and part of what made it possible can be attributed to the fame of Johnny Manziel.

Texas A&M is currently doing a $450 million overhaul of its stadium and at least one regent believes the finished product should be named in honor of the ex-Aggies quarterback. This regent is none other than Jim Schwertner and he believes the university would not have raised the money for the renovation so easily if not for the wild success and popularity of Manziel.

Schwertner also noted that the final decision won't be entirely up to him though. Hey, if Manziel can somehow manage to turn around the lowly Browns, it may help his cause in College Station.

The renovations are expected to be complete in 2015 and will give Kyle Field the highest capacity of any stadium in the SEC (102,500). The program will be play in a partially completed stadium for the 2014 campaign.

  1. "Great idea!" said the guy running the Ryan Leaf school for Kids Who Can't Throw Too Good. You may want to rethink at least until he throws 1 pro pass.....in a game.....with opponents.
