I guess that's been the case for a long time, though.
Scary thing is, I'm not sure Manziel is a surefire NFL QB, so I think he's a four year player. Wouldn't surprise me at all if he won it again. He's really, really good, and plays in offense that lends itself to insane numbers by a dual threat QB with his talent.
Manti Teo rode the Notre Dame hype to the heisman trophy presentation.
And his gf/grandma dying in the same day helped too. Heisman isn't a citizen's award. It's a best CFB player award.
Johnny Manziel will be in the NFL...I can agree about your QB sentiment but the dude can play football. Louisiana Tech recovered a fumble and ran it almost all the way back for a touchdown. Who chased him down? Johnny Manziel. He forced a fumble...a fellow LA tech recovered it and then Johnny tackled him down.
The play was ruled dead and the fumble never counted but still...he is Johnny Fuc
king Football for a reason.
