In a recent interview with CBS Sports ' Dennis Dodd, the former Aggie quarterback opened up about his time in Aggieland, his transfer to the University of Houston, and some of the reasons he made the change.  It seems that things were not always rosy in the years following the departure of Johnny Manziel.

“I think the culture was a big part of it, and I think that stems from Johnny's era there -- the way that they let Johnny and [others] act there,” said Allen, the No. 1-rated pro-style quarterback in the 247Sports Composite for 2014. “They [could] do that and still win games because they had Johnny … and five offensive linemen playing in the NFL right now.”

Allen added: “A lot of people were riding off that, ‘I can do whatever the hell I want and win on Saturday.'"

These comments raise some red flags about the overall culture of the program.  What we don't know is if these are merely the lone feelings of a QB who transferred under less-than-amicable terms or if this truly points to a larger problem within our football program the last 2-3 seasons.
