A single tweet from ESPN reporter Darren Rovell will be very depressing for Texas A&M fans.

Rovell revealed how much former Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel masked the lack of talent from current coach Kevin Sumlin.

Manziel’s success on the field for Texas A&M turned into massive contracts for Sumlin, and that’s not good news for fans of the program. Sumlin has repeatedly disappointed fans, and blew a 34 point lead Sunday night during the Aggies’ nationally televised season opener against UCLA.

Manziel won games on the field and brought the program a couple years of success, but the longterm ramifications included handing out a massive and horrible deal to Sumlin.

A&M fans shouldn’t get too excited about moving on from Sumlin anytime soon. The school will owe him over $11 million if he’s fired, which is a massive buyout for a college sports team.

Manziel might not have done well in the NFL, but the fact he was able to make Sumlin look like a genius is a testament to how great his college tenure was.
