Pretty cool bro. I haven't many famous athletes outside of fighters, and I've always tried to 'play it cool', because most of the time I was meeting them in a gym/workout environment.

I don't think I would ask for an autograph of a football player, but I may go groupie mode for a famous basketball player like D. Lee or Curry.

And goddamn...JFF's gf looks hot as hell in that picture. The one of him and his gf next to the heisman...she looks like a straight up fake plastic barbie (nowhere near as hot looking).

Inarguably the greatest college football player of all time.
Florida can challenge Texas A&M too.

That's cool, good to hear Manziel seems like a good kid.

But y'know the real College Station celeb is Hawker right?

How is he the anti-Tebow? Because he's not religious? On the football field they are very similar players. Both are "Gods" on their campus. Both were the youngest players to win the Heisman. Both were in the SEC. If anything, he is the next Tebow.

And greatest college player of all time?

they aren't similar at all on the football field.

Johnny can actually throw the ball worth a damn for one. They both can run the ball but Tebow was a bulldozer while Manziel is quick and agile.

and yes, him partying like a rock star is part of what makes him the anti Tebow.

Not similar at all. Oh come on, be reasonable. Peyton Manning and Johnny Manziel aren't similar at all on the football field. Both QB's biggest assets are their legs. The love to scramble in the pocket. They are not known for their precision passing but for their athleticism. Obviously Tebow is more of a power scrambler while Manziel is more reliant on speed and agility but their are similarities.

And Tebow couldn't throw in college? Sure he sucks in the pros but as a college QB he was more than adequate. His throwing was never a problem. Lets not pretend he was Juice Williams.

Persona wise, you could say he is the anti-Tebow but when it comes to their football careers so far I think they are very similar.

They're not similar at all on the field or off the field.

And yes, Johnny Football is the greatest football player of all time. He'll show that even more next season.

I had no idea A&M fans were such delusional homers. My apologies.

Yeah, but you know what, I'm feeling charitable today so I'll take her off his hands. Always good to help those less fortunate than yourself.

And he was terrible. But I guess I don't really blame him, he was only trying to get into the NBA. Dude was super raw.
yeah, he got massively outplayed by every other frontcourt player here. He killed his draft stock (was considered a top 3 type player coming out of HS) and ended up in the 2nd round. I wonder what he was back for.

dude, his throwing was subpar in college. it was ok, but it was not a strength at all. While manziel really does have an incredible arm. nowhere near the best foosball player of all time, but definitely a very good one
