it came across as little more than

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Johnny Manziel put on the show all of Arkansas dreaded in the first half. Texas A&Ms running game and timely defence took over from there -- providing the perfect formula for the 10th-ranked Aggies 45-33 victory over the Razorbacks. A year after Manziel had his coming-out party in a 58-10 win over Arkansas, totalling 557 yards of total offence, he was back at it on Saturday night. The sophomore accounted for 253 of his 320 total yards in the first half, including two touchdown passes to Mike Evans, as the Aggies (4-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) came away a winner in their first trip to Fayetteville since 1990 -- when both schools were members of the Southwest Conference. The win was Texas A&Ms second straight after a loss to No. 1 Alabama, and it was the schools ninth straight on the road. Manziel finished 23-of-30 passing for 261 yards, and he rushed for 59 yards. "We asked (Manziel) to make plays, and he made plays," Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said. "He took care of the ball. We were able to run it and be patient." Arkansas (3-2, 0-1) stayed close throughout, bolstered by the return of quarterback Brandon Allen. The sophomore missed last weeks loss to Rutgers with a shoulder injury, but he returned Saturday -- finishing 17-of-36 passing for 282 yards and two touchdowns. Arkansas had the ball down by one score or less three times in the second half, but Texas A&Ms defence held each time -- ending one drive with Deshazor Everetts interception and forcing two three-and-outs. The teams combined for 1,006 yards of offence. The Aggies, who entered the game leading the SEC in scoring at 50.2 points per game, outgained the Razorbacks 523-483 in total yardage. "We knew we had to score basically every time we had it," Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said. Manziel appeared to turn Razorback Stadium into his personal playground in the first half, zigzagging his way through the Arkansas defence on his way to 253 total yards. The Aggies led 24-20 at halftime, behind touchdown catches of 9 and 7 yards by Evans -- the second of which came over a host of Arkansas defenders and put Texas A&M up 24-10. The Aggies went up 30-20 to start the second half when Everett intercepted Allen and returned it 34 yards for a touchdown. While Manziel controlled the action for much of the first half, Texas A&M turned to its running game to hold off a renewed Arkansas offence in the second half. The Aggies rushed for 150 of their 262 yards in the second half, during which they ran the ball 29 times and threw it only seven. After the Razorbacks pulled within 31-27 on a 9-yard touchdown run by Alex Collins, Texas A&M responded with an 8-play, 68-yard touchdown drive -- with all eight plays coming on the ground. Williams capped the drive with a 17-yard touchdown run. Tra Carson had 64 yards rushing on 9 carries for the Aggies, while Ben Malena added 40 yards on 12 carries. "I think the offensive line did an excellent job," Malena said. "The coaches told us at halftime if we want to win the game, were going to have the run the ball. So the offensive line got the message." While the Aggies had little problem moving the ball, Arkansas offence surprised Texas A&M with its ability to move the ball. The Razorbacks lost at Rutgers last week after leading by 17 points in the second half. They played that game with AJ Derby at quarterback, but Bielema tweeted Friday night that Allen -- who injured his shoulder two weeks ago against Southern Mississippi -- was healthy and would return against the Aggies. The sophomore looked comfortable during warmups and even better once the game started, throwing a 12-yard touchdown pass to Keon Hatcher on Arkansas first drive. Allen also threw a pair of interceptions, including one late to Texas A&Ms Steven Jenkins that sealed the win, but his return provided a much-needed boost the Arkansas passing game. "I thought he played great," Bielema said. "... I think that last (interception) might have been more fatigue than anything. He really, basically, didnt do anything for about a week and a half." Collins led the Razorbacks with 116 yards rushing on 14 carries, and fellow freshman Hunter Henry had four catches for 109 yards. Despite the boost from Allens return, the Razorbacks once again had few answers for the reigning Heisman Trophy winner Manziel. "He did a lot of big things," Arkansas defensive end Chris Smith said. "We only got to him one time, but hes a great player. Like I said before, he made a lot of moves. Give credit to that offensive line. They were good too."

Tramaine Brock Jersey .500 on the season. The Jets are now 0-5-1 in the second game of back-to-backs. The game started the same way the Vancouver game started the night before, with the Jets taking the first two penalties of the game and killing off the first, but the Oilers getting on the board first, scoring on the second man-advantage. Roger Craig Jersey . Listen to the Raptors vs. Jazz live tonight on TSN Radio 1050 at 9pm et/6pm pt. The Raptors are 1-1 so far on the five-game junket after defeating Denver and losing to Portland.On Wednesday night, the man who put the Toronto Raptors on the map returns to the Air Canada Centre for what could be the final time. Vincent Lamar Carter is no longer the lean, athletic dynamo who dazzled Raptors fans with eye-popping dunks that posterized even the leagues best defenders. Carter is also no longer the petulant man-child who fans feel gave up on his team and his city and forced a move away from the franchise that he legitimized. At almost 37, Vince Carter is an NBA veteran, perhaps not grizzled, but a far cry from the two sides of the one man that Toronto Raptors fans remember with both fondness and disdain. In Torontos case, the latter greatly outweighs the former. Carter first returned to Toronto after his acrimonious exit as a member of the then-New Jersey Nets in April, 2005. To say that the reception he received was unwelcome would be kind. Few things stir up anger in sports fans like being jilted by a player they once idolized. The torrent of abuse directed Carters way didnt seem to faze him as he ended up dropping 39 on his former mates in a Nets win. When Carters Dallas Mavericks take on the Raptors on Wednesday night, Carter is likely to once again be met by vociferous boos as he always has been since the first time he came back to the ACC as a member of the enemy, but, of course, with each subsequent visit, the jeers have gotten quieter. The anger that once consumed Raptors fans just isnt there anymore for the most part. When Vince Carter is booed again tonight, it will be more out of habit than anything else. Much like the case with his cousin, the now-retired Tracy McGrady, the booing is just what you do. All of this, then, begs the question: Should time heal all wounds? In what might be the last time Toronto Raptors fans see Vince Carter at the Air Canada Centre, is it time for Raptors fans to let the good outweigh the bad and welcome the prodigal son back into the fold? Lets not kid ourselves. The break-up was bad and Carter had more than a big hand in it. On the morning of the biggest game in franchise history - Game 7 of the 2001 Eastern Conference Semifinals with the Philadelphia 76ers - Carter decided to fly to Raleigh to collect his degree from the University of North Carolina. Its anybodys guess as to why he chose to go then and not in the summer, but unrelatedly or not, Carter missed the game-winning shot that evening with only two seconds left on the clock. And then there was the meddling with the front office. Obviously, most franchises try to jibe with their best players wishes, but many felt Carter overstepped his bounds. The impetus to bring in a broken-down Hakeem Olajuwon and offer him a pricey extension appeared to come from Carter. It was a spectacular failure. Carter was constantly in managements ear and attemptingg to mold the club in ways that he wanted.dddddddddddd Outside of a brief stint in the Orlando Magic front office as vice-president, Julius Erving had no managerial experience, yet this was the man who Carter championed to almost the point of insistence for the Raptors general manager job in 2004. When the team went with Rob Babcock, Carter took this as an affront. When the situation became untenable that season, Babcocks hands were tied to the point that all he could fetch from the Nets in exchange for Carter were bench pieces Eric Williams and Aaron Williams, a past-his-prime Alonzo Mourning - who never played a game for the team and was almost immediately released, but not before receiving a $9 million buyout package – and a pair of first-round draft picks. The cruelest blow, though, came the month after he was traded when he sat down with legendary Georgetown coach John Thompson, then working as an analyst for TNT, and told him that he had begun to coast in his last years in Toronto. "I was just fortunate enough to have the talent," Carter said. "You know, you get spoiled when youre able to do a lot of things and you see that, and you really dont have to work at it. But now, I think with all the injuries and the things that have gone on, I have to work a little harder and Im a little hungrier. Thats why getting the opportunity to have a fresh start with New Jersey has made me want to attack the basket for a lot of reasons." To hear your franchise player admit to dogging it is beyond the pale and probably reason enough alone for the idea of some sort of reconciliation to be out of the question. Recently, though, Carter has claimed that he never wanted to leave the Raptors and told as much to Babcock, but was informed that a deal had already been agreed upon with the Nets. Former Raptors coach Sam Mitchell corroborated Carters account, but considering this information became public almost 10 years after the fact, it came across as little more than damage control for what is seemingly an irreparable image in this city. Still, as the spectre of Carters exit still casts a shadow over what he did as a Raptor, is it time that the two arent mutually exclusive? It was Carter who led the team to its first ever playoff spot. It was Carter who led the team to its first ever series win. It was Carter who got the Raptors onto national American television broadcasts and into the larger basketball consciousness as something other than just that team that plays in Canada. To say nothing of the fact that Carter remains the franchise leader in points per game and second in total points. Is it time Raptors fans let Carters legacy outshine the acrimony of his exit? Or is the exit his legacy with the Toronto Raptors? As always, its Your! Call.
