It's Johnny Manziel that's made Texas A&M and Drake the strangest of college football/superstar hip-hop crossover bedfellows, but when even R. Bowen Loftin his own bow-tied self is in on the fun, it's safe to say it's gone beyond merely Johnny Football's and Drake's mutual admiration society.

Yes, as verified by the San Antonio Express-News, that's Kevin Sumlin on the left, and defensive coordinator Mark Snyder on the right. As reporter Brent Zwerneman put it, "Sumlin and Snyder probably enjoy the work of the favorite artist of quarterback Johnny Manziel (and a whole lot of other players), too, but the idea that A&M's coach and his defensive right-hand man were in such a prominent place in the nation's fourth-largest city is, you got it, big for recruiting."
Whatever Sumlin has been doing for recruiting, it's working; the Aggies are fourth in the current 247Sports team rankings, with a per-recruit rating average second only to Alabama and Georgia.
