Good sports, bad sports

There's good news and bad news in the sports sections of today's newspapers.

First, the bad news: The Houston Chronicle speculates that Johnny Manziel may be chosen by the Houston Texans in the NFL draft. Not a prime destination in my opinion.

Then the good news: Les Koenning will be returning to Texas U as an assistant on Charlie Strong's coaching staff. This dude played at Texas as a wide receiver, then served as a Slocum assistant at Texas A&M (1995-96), coaching WRs. Later, Koenning came back to TAMU as Dennis Franchione's offensive coordinator/quarterback coach (2003-2007). In that position, he was able to turn potential superstar Reggie McNeal into another journeyman Aggie QB, and contribute to the general decline of Aggie football in the 21st century. McNeal was the best QB recruited by Slocum, a true dual threat as a passer who could run. Under Koenning, his talent was wasted. Great hire, Charlie.

I can honestly say that Les Koenning is the only Texas A&M assistant coach I ever hated.
