Johnny Football may be A&M's star quarterback but as of recently he's also been the center of attention of almost every sports story out there nationally.

And while typically that's a good thing, in Manziel's case it isn't.

"They haven't really picked up on any of the positive things that he's done or focused on his athletic ability," said senior Katelyn Villescsaz. "I feel like a lot of it has been negative."

Fed up with the Manziel media coverage, a local business decided to do something about it.

"We really just kind of feel like Johnny isn't getting a fair shake and that the narrative was being driven by the national media just to kind of drive ratings and get more viewers rather than find out the facts of the story," said Aggieland Outfitters, Dallas Shipp. 

So at the request of A&M fans, Aggieland Outfitters unveiled a new shirt that says "BTHO ESPiN" taking direct aim at the critics, specifically one major sports network in particular.

"We did this as a fun way to kind of poke back at the national media and so yeah i think ESPiN is a perfect use of the parody there," said Shipp. 

Michael Jones agrees, "I thought it was pretty right on."

Jones came in to the store Thursday after hearing about the shirt to buy a couple.

"You know he [Manziel] may be wrong but he's our guy and we're going to stick by him," said Jones.

Whether ESPN gets Aggieland Outfitters message or not, one thing's for certain; Aggie fans aren't going anywhere anytime soon.
