VIDEO: Rick Neuheisel's awesome Johnny Manziel tribute song
Former UCLA, Colorado and Washington head coach Rick Neuheisel, now with the Pac-12 Network, performed a Johnny Manziel tribute song on the Dan Patrick Show.
Rick Neuheisel has been enjoyable to watch as an analyst on Pac-12 Network, but the former Bruins coach let his performance art shine on Monday's edition of the Dan Patrick Show with a country-western tribute song to Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.
Neuheisel wrote new lyrics to Marty Robbins' classic country tune, El Paso. The parody song includes witty references to Manziel's off-field adventures, NCAA eligibility questions and on-field greatness.
Check out the video below, as well as a sample of Neuheisel's lyrics from the song.
Out in the badlands they call College Station,
Lived a young Aggie named Johnny Manziel.
Football and life to him were a bull ride,
He rode them both like a bat out of hell.
He shocked the nation by beating the best,
Flattening out the Tide.
The Heisman came calling, the agents came crawling;
But through it all Johnny Football did ride, ride, ride.
Now our young Aggie's no longer a hero, he was a target of public disdain;
Another victim of fame and fortune, "What's wrong with Johnny?" became the refrain.
