04:09 PM ET 09.09 | Johnny Manziel mania is going to reach another level on Saturday when CBS breaks out their "Johnny Cam" that will follow the reigning Heisman Trophy winner every second of the team's highly anticipated rematch against the two-time defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide. We all remember when Manziel marched into Tuscaloosa a year ago to shock Alabama, but now the rolls will be reversed and Alabama will look to spoil the party in College Station. With Manziel seemingly always doing something to garner attention, CBS thought it would be a good idea to dedicate one of the cameras to following the A&M star, so the "Johnny Cam" was born.

I can't wait to see Texas A&M get the easy win over Alobama. It's going to make the USC loss to BC that much easier to take.

I didn't think CBS broadcasts could get any worse. Danielson and Lundquist fe||ate the SEC on every play and now we get a Johnny Cam.

I don't expect much else from CBS, every sports channel is offering free Johnnyoscopy's all week. I wouldn't mind hearing Johnny mic after the game Saturday tho.

Is anyone really dumb enough to believe this is the first time this has happened? How is this going to be any different from the last few games he's played, especially given the whole autograph outrage?

+1.

Like the kid or not, but when he's in the game, EVERY camera in the joint is a "Johnny cam!"

Good. This means we'll get to see the epic face-plant of JFF from multiple angles, replays, and speeds. If only some 'Bama defender will cooperate.

It may be a little different in that CBS has, by far, the best camera work in all of televised sports.

'Bama's defense is built to force pays to the middle where not-so-fast LBs can smother the play.

Johnny don't play that.

.........me thinks bama will try to do to JF what they did to "ncaa player of year" colt mccoy a few years ago.....illegal hit to injure and get him out of the game.....which was the only way bama had a chance then, and is their only shot now.......

I am surprised the SEC allows all these cameras at their games. I would think that one of the cameras just might pick up one of those $500.00 handshakes.

Once again, you have lived up to your moniker.

Didn't the XFl have a QB Cam (mounted directly on the QB) or a camera mounted on some other player???

Anthony Weiner got in trouble for using a camera on his johnny.
