Texas A&M's Heisman Trophy Quarterback: From Johnny Football ... To Johnny Goofball

   In the 2013 college football season Johnny Manziel will try to do what Roger Staubach, Ty Detmer, Jason White, Matt Leinart, Tim Tebow and Sam Bradford couldn't - defend their Heisman Trophy.
   Before then, however, Johnny Football must convince his critics - and perhaps even his fans and teammates - that he hasn't deteriorated into Johnny Goofball.
   We all know Manziel's spectacular story. From being the 393rd recruit out of Kerrville Tivy High School to winning the Heisman at Texas A&M after leading the Aggies to an 11-2 record, an upset of eventual National Champion Alabama and a Cotton-Bowl romp over Oklahoma. His performance was stunningly entertaining, with subtle jukes and dramatic jives straight out Xbox he escaped tackles, bought time and wound up with a combined 5,115 yards and 47 touchdowns.
   And then came Jan. 5.

  1. Good read, Richie. Not to nit-pick, but the OU defensive coordinator you quoted is actually Mike Stoops. Mark Stoops is the head coach at Kentucky. Daily reader, keep up the good work!

  2. Texas fan here, and I LOVE this guy. He doesn't necessarily fit the low profile profile of a great A&M athlete, so the powers that be at A&M are frustrated with him I'm sure. It's kind of crazy that he could have been suspended for the season last year, and then ends up leading them to one of their best seasons ever. It's weird having my team's QB(David Ash) seem more the fit for A&M and the A&M quarterback seeming more Texas-like.
    Looking forward to watching Manziel this season.

  3. The boy is livin' large...good for him! The media ripped Tebow, bc he was not exciting enough & JM is wide right for everyone. Humorous, how under age drinking is the norm at college, but JM gets ridiculed for it. All of the Heisman critics want him to live like Miss America has to do. What a laugher!

  4. The kid's a hell of a football player, but also a first class tool. Speaking of class, he apparently has none. Not only has he made an ass of himself, he's put a damn bulls-eye on his back that his team certainly doesn't need. PLUS, if he comes out for the NFL next year -- and that'll be determined how well he plays this coming season -- all of his immature and idiotic behavior will cost him. Someone should rein in this dude -- it seems his parents will not as they made excuses up for him when he acted the fool at the Manning QB camp.

  5. NFL? Most Heisman winners that are QB's just don't translate to playing in the big boy league. JM will probably be no different, but could be a heck of an arena league player. If the boy can skate then his chances in the NHL are better than the NFL!

  6. Seems like Manziel is heading down the Greg Williams road to irrelevance. Hopefully he will listen to someone before it ends too soon and too tragic.

    1. What exactly is Johnny doing that is even remotely similar to Greg Williams?

    2. You mean Manziel has a no-talent sidekick?!

    3. Self-denial, blowing talent instead of setting down and doing hard work. Bill2455

  7. Because Johnny has a social life somehow he is a bad guy. He didn't look distracted last season. And when he had more distractions than ever during the lead up to the Cotton Bowl, well we see how that game went.
