09:17 AM ET 08.04 | The on-field rivalry between Texas and Texas A&M is as dead as the dodo, but that didn't stop Longhorns head coach Mack Brown from taking a shot at Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel on Thursday. Brown told a crowd of 1,300 at the annual Gridiron Kickoff Classic luncheon in Austin that Texas signal-caller David Ash was a "great counselor" at the Manning Passing Academy, Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman tweeted. Brown seemed to be taking a dig at Manziel's controversial exit from the annual summer camp hosted by Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning.

GASP! Oh you shouldn't have implied that, Mack Brown!

Now ... who cares how good of a counselor David Ash was at some passing academy! If he sucks on the field or gets hurt your choices are the DuckMaster and the Swopes kid. You better hope Ash performs and stays healthy!

That's a dig in typical Kirk Bohls fashion right there.

Here's the DC translation: Ash is a better counselor, JFF is a better QB. Ash needs to learn to play QB and JFF needs to get his **** together.

A counselor is supposed to be a prince of peace.

Meh. You're late, Mack. Everybody else has already.

Probably. But Powers would have to let Dodds go too. Mack's not happy with LHN and wants to shove it up Dodds' keister. Dodds too busy counting money to notice problems. Rex McCombs busy whispering stuff in Powers' ear. Dysfunctional family.

GTH...Did you watch CC's HOF speech last night?

HiYa, WAMU. No, I didn't. I've always had mixed feelings about Chris Carter after his 1987 ineligibility and the resultant train wreck of Earl Bruce's career. CC was a great player, no doubt, but his lack of good judgment and substance abuse demons have always tempered my opinion of him.
