That's actually prime example number 1. If you love the college life and enjoy the atmosphere why would you opt to not take classes on campus?

I had forgotten about that.

Johnny Manziel likes to make youtube videos showing his skills...He likes to throw first pitches at ball games...He likes to show up in the tabloids popping bottles at clubs...He likes to have little short segments about him on ESPN following him through his day....

Lets be real here. If you think Manziel doesn't enjoy/crave that limelight you're kidding yourself.

There is no limelight by walking around with the rest of the regular students on campus. Just drama and headaches of being approached by everyone and their mamma. But when there is an opportunity to perform on a big stage or get in front of a camera, Manziel does not seem like the reclusive type...
B.S. the kid had no choice but to take classes off campus. You're him out to be a premadonna. That couldn't be further from the truth.

I have no knowledge of the situation so I am not disagreeing with you but why did he have to take off campus classes?

He became so popular that he literally couldn't go anywhere on campus without drawing a huge crowd. It got to the point where his being there was really Disrupting the classes.

OK, I am just having a hard time believing this is something unique to him and hasn't been dealt with by prior athletes like say Vince Young.

He is going pro next year for sure. Read this article and you will see why. Long but one of the best articles I have read in a long while.

Thought it deserved it's own thread because of the quality of the article but it was moved before 99% of the population can read an article of that length. I think it is a must read.
