They are working with A&M to make sure he doesn't lose his eligibility. Same as what LSU did with "Honey Badger".

Just hope "Johnny Football" turns out better than the "Honey Badger" did. There's a lot of pressure on these kids in the public eye to perform well on the field and in their public life when they're not playing. I hope Manziel can keep it all in perspective and not throw it all away like the "Honey Badger" probably has.

Incredible.

Thanks for posting that video GHF. What I found the most impressive? The play where Manziel forces a fumble, gets back up, and tackles the guy who recovered the fumble. He is Mr. Energy. He just never stops playing hard.

Johnny Football!!! And this year, perhaps he is Johnny HeisManziel.

I agree on the most impressive play on that video. When it happened, I couldn't believe it.

Last night, he even attempted an extra point. Sadly he missed, but it was so funny that he tried. The whole team was laughing at him.

Looks like Steve Young to me. Pointing out to his WRs who to block for him, weaving through tacklers. Rocketing passed downfield in unorthodox manner.

Cool.

Is this guy really the front runner for the Heisman? I think he's awesome. I think he's having a magical season... but really?

Best player in college football? Really?

Quote:
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has a slim edge this week. The freshman sensation, who burst on to the Heisman radar by leading the Aggies to victory at then-No.1 Alabama, received 74 points with 15 first-place votes, though his attempt to kick an extra point in a tune-up win Saturday against Sam Houston State didn't go so well.

No one really comes close. Lee is good, but USC lost their QB and lost to UCLA. T'eo is a joke really, D Moore at A&M has as good or better stats, just not the feel good story. Klein and KSU lost badly to Baylor and Klein had 3 INT's.

Yep.

I'm afraid Johnny will get screwed just because he is a freshman, but there is no question that he is the best player in the country. Even his "bad" performances against LSU and Florida were probably the best individual performances against those two teams all year. Hell, Manziel has played against something like the #2, 4, and 5 ranked defenses this year. The guy is a redshirt freshman that has played multiple games against near NFL quality defenses.

There is no one more deserving of the Heisman this year. No one.

I hope Manziel gets the Heisman, and I think he deserves it, but it's hard to overlook the pity votes Teo will get from this story: http://youtu.be/j_P1rcOAwEA

Kind of weird that a devout Mormon would choose ND.

Yes it is close, but you are only looking at the offensive side of the ball just like most of the stat reading folks.

Manti Te'o is having a great season and is a true leader.

It is not pity votes, he deserves consideration.

What oustanding thing has Te'o done that should put him in serious consideration? I mean really. What stats make him shine? Or is the unidentifiable "intangibles" that people point to when they can't find hard evidence?

The truth is Te'o is having a mediocre year statistically. His stats are middle of the road. Yes, he's a good leader, but most every good team has them. Compare Te'o to Moore A&M who is the NCAA leader in sacks but has no mention for the Heisman. Very comparable.
