|Johnny Manziel Johnny Manzieling Alabama.|
It was bound to happen. Someone has turned Texas A&M Heisman-winning starting quarterback Johnny Manziel's name into a verb. His real name, mind you, not that unambitious "Johnny Football" nickname. The lucky person to perform the task? Notre Dame head football coach Brian Kelly in describing how the Fighting Irish offense will deal with the Alabama defense in Monday night's BCS title game.
ND's Brian Kelly on facing Bama: "We don't go into this game thinking we are going to Johnny Manziel you to death." #JohnnyFootball

Apparently to "Johnny Manziel" is defined in this case as meaning "to run circles around a team like Alabama, much like Johnny Football did during the Aggies' 29-24 win against the Tide in November." How it gets used in the real world is yet to be determined.
