Johnny Manziel Sporting A Longhorn Tattoo, Because, Of Course He Has A Longhorn Tattoo [UPDATED]

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Johnny Manziel continues to troll the Aggie faithful.

[Update]: The great debate today? Whether or not that picture of Johnny Football with his Longhorn tattoo is actually real. Welcome to the age of Photoshop, y'all. -- Wescott

Did you have that couple in high school that always made you ask "How did that happen?" Where the girlfriend was just unbelievably attractive and popular and the guy was just, you know, not. She would go off and flirt with all the other boys while he would just nervously wait for her to text him back. (You may not have had texting in high school.)

Well, that is essentially Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M. Johnny Football really wanted to be a Longhorn, and he isn't ashamed to show it. Last month, he made a trip to the state capitol for a concert (on a Tuesday during the school week, because Manziel has no obligations.) He was invited on stage and immediately threw the Horns up.

Today, this picture of Manziel surfaced. Notice the Quarterback's left torso? Yep, that's a Longhorn.

The SEC does not take lightly to this kind of behavior. Last year, Georgia fans lost their s*** when QB Aaron Murray was spotted in Tallahassee wearing a Florida State tee-shirt. Other SEC schools viciously taunted him on Twitter, Facebook, and "between the hedges." A small shirt blunder is miniscule when we enter the tattoo realm, though.

In January, Auburn's five star linebacker commit Rueben Foster spurned the Tigers to go play for Dr. Saban in Tuscaloosa. The only problem was that he had an Auburn tattoo that covered his forearm. His tattoo earned him severe mocking from the college football world, and even a little jab from President Obama. He followed up with an apology tweet, as well as a tweet explaining his future plans with the tattoo. (That tweet has since been deleted.)

Foster's tattoo was a little premature, but was Manziel's? Texas law requires a person to be eighteen before they can get legally get a tattoo.

Manziel turned eighteen in December of 2010. He committed to A&M three months before that, in September. This means that Manziel conciously made the decision to tattoo a Texas Longhorn on his body after knowing he was going to attend Texas A&M.

Did Manziel expect to become a Longhorn after he committed to A&M? Is he just a massive Longhorn fan? Did he hide it from his dad? Does he read Burnt Orange Nation? Regardless of the reason, it sure was a questionable decision on the part of Manziel. One thing remains true, we love our Longhorn fans. No matter who they are or what rival they lead during their Heisman campaign.

[Update 2:53 am] -- Johnny Manziel responded to the tattoo rumor by sending out this tweet. He followed it with multiple childish, moronic, replies to strangers, in what could only be described as a twitter meltdown.

Of course, some sweaty, nervous, A&M compliance officer has called Manziel at his resort in Cabo and forced him to delete some of these tweets, but I'm looking at them from an hour ago, on my iPad, and will summarize them as accurately as possible.

1.

Random Fan- I don't believe you. You are a liar, You Cheat.

Manziel- You suck.

2.

Random Fan- Fake tattoo like that fake mercedes you were driving at the end of that ESPN segment.

Manziel- naw, far from it.

3.

Random Fan- how much money did that fake tat cost? Did u check with compliance first?

Manziel- yeah man 150 pesos is a ton, I hope I can afford it.

4.

Random Fan- Ah, yes but was the douche behind the tattoo fake, as well?

Manziel- Tell your mom I said wassup.

5.

Random Fan- Make up your mind bro! Inserts photo of Manziel wearing gear from Oregon, Texas, and A&M.

Manziel- This is literally the dumbest tweet I have ever seen.

Someone at A&M needs to start screening Manziel's tweets before he puts them in the public forum. His responses remind me of a rattled teenage boy.

I leave you with the last tweet sent from David Ash's account.

Hook'em. Goodnight.
