Boz 'a bigger jerk' than Manziel


07:16 AM ET 09.06 | A pair of former Oklahoma headliners are making a few of them this week in talking about Johnny Manziel -- beginning with legendary Sooners coach Barry Switzer on Wednesday. Thursday, on former Sooner Tony Casillas' radio show on 107.7 The Franchise, Switzer and Casillas sparred about another controversial figure in college football -- former Sooner Brian Bosworth. Casillas and Bosworth were teammates with the Sooners in 1984 and 1985. "I remember I played with Brian Bosworth and there was a lot of times that I really felt like there had been a situation where either an assistant coach or head coach could've filtered him because he was out of hand," Casillas said. "I understand where you're going with that but I look back and the guys like that, for me I think he was a bigger jerk than Johnny Manziel."

The same argument Switzer makes for the " Boz" not being arrested and all and that is why he is ok can be made for Manziel. comes down to if the guy is on your team, then he is ok. If he is on the team beating your aazzz, then he is no good.

People should be more " offended " by guys who get arrested during the week for stuff and then play on Saturday. They should be more offended by Meyer's group that had 31 players arrested and in confrontations with the police in Gainesville from 2005-2010 and nothing was done by the school, or the NCAA. But stupid stuff done by Manziel is offensive?

Man, Johnny ain't gettin' no love from his elders:

Brian Urlacher: "I???m not saying he's a punk, but he acted like a punk in that game."

Tom Brady: "If you're a turd, it's going to come back to you."

Barry Switzer: "I wanted to jerk Manziel's facemask."

But both are still jerks.

A "who is the biggest jerk" contest between Brian Bosworth and JFF is like a "who's the dumbest kid in the class" contest. What does it matter?
