Barry Switzer was a guest on CBS Sports Radio’s The Morning After program in St. Louis this morning, and one of the hosts pulled some choice quotes from what seemed like a riveting conversation (as interviews with Switzer tend to be). Specifically, how does the former Sooners and Cowboys coach feel about Johnny Manziel?

"Barry Switzer on @TMASTL: “I don’t like Johnny Manziel’s antics. I think he’s an arrogant little prick.”"

Surely Switzer can’t be referring to the partying — the coach was said to have spent $100k on booze during a Super Bowl week in which his team was playing — so maybe he’s talking about this sorta thing?

Switching gears, how does Switzer feel about Manziel’s play on the field?

"Barry Switzer: "I've compared Manziel to Michael Jordan and Oscar Robertson. He takes over a game like those guys did.""

"Barry Switzer on Manziel: “I’ve never seen a CFB QB do what he does. It’s staggering…He’s the most dominant CFB QB I’ve seen in a long time”"

So, uh, if Switzer were in an NFL personnel department, how would he reconcile his hatred for Manziel’s personality with his admiration for the quarterback’s talent?

"Barry Switzer: If Manziel is there for the Rams at #2, you draft him."

Sounds about right.
