Marshall Henderson already has a contingency plan if his team doesn’t advance to the Final Four next month and he’s hoping it includes hanging out with Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.

Manziel, college football’s most popular player, and Henderson, college basketball's bad boy, don’t know each other personally, but Manziel tweeted Henderson Saturday to offer encouragement for Henderson’s flamboyant style.
Henderson is known for his excessive taunting and his oozing confidence. He’s also never see a shot he didn’t like. He made 19 points on 6-of-21 shooting against Wisconsin in the second round, which prompted Miami Heat star Lebron James to tweet:
Man that dude Henderson from Ol Miss got the greenest light in basketball history!! Hahaha.

If Henderson and Manziel were ever to get together, there’s no doubt the photos would be epic. Pictures of Henderson, Manziel, scantily clad girls, beer pong, chili and booze (lemonade for Manziel since he's underage) would probably break the Internet. Here's hoping they meet up, become the best of friends and take many, many photos that land on social media.
Chilifest 2013 begins April 6 in College Station, Texas, so make your plans accordingly.
