I don't give two shits about what Dat Nguyen did in 1998. He was a great player, and probably deserved more Heisman consideration, but that has nothing to do with 2012 and Manti Te'o.
And I didn't say Manziel wouldn't play in the NFL. I'm just not sure he's a surefire QB in the sense that he'll probably leave after next year or his junior year. He just feels like a four year player. I'm not denying his athleticism or how good he was, either.
Just saying that "this" is the year a defensive player should win it is wrong. Teo wasn't the best playing in CFB.
Either way...Johnny Footbal is the Heisman Trophy win and is by far the most deserving player this year.
Can't wait for him to light up OU and the rest of the SEC next year.
