ESPN Radio's Finebaum Says Nation Has Fascination With Manziel

What's the national media saying about Saturday's game between A&M and Alabama?

ESPN sports radio host Paul Finebaum was in the KBTX studios Friday night doing a satellite interview.

And imagine this, that talk centered on Aggie quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Finebaum said, "He's not only the most polarizing player I have seen in my lifetime, which is a long time, he's the most interesting. He's the most fascinating, and tomorrow people are watching this game, not just because of Alabama, not because Alabama is trying to win three National Championships in a row, that's been done. We're all watching from New York to LA to Chicago to Philadelphia because of Johnny Manziel. I don't know if the public likes him or not. I don't know if they hate him, but they're glued to him. We haven't seen this in sports in some time."

Finebaum is predicting Alabama will win by at least a touchdown.

And you know how predictions can turn out.
