Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel can't capitalize on his name, but he can protect it....
Personally I'm tired of Johnny, never wanted a guy to get his butt handed to him so bad in my life. All this crap is getting out of hand, and I know it can't be easy for the kid but he needs to be playing football and going to school. All this other stuff is making me sick. I don't care how much money his dad has no need to be running all over the country. I'm sure he has workouts and class work that he needed to be doing. Hope the name is worthless in a couple years, would make him and daddy look stupid.
No classwork. He has all online courses.

He's going to get ROCKED in his second season in the SEC... no one knew who he was last year. The target will be on his head next season... and it may not be pretty. I'm going to guess he misses 3 to 4 games at least, due to injury.
Exactly, he should have class work. To good for classes to. I got a house I would bet he hasn't seen any of his online classes on his computer. Some buddy has, but Johnny Football hasn't.
Well thats what the tutors are for. At least at Nebraska, our kids have to go to a class. They still have tutors doin a bunch of their work for em, but they do have to act like college students.
A lot of hate for a 20 year old kid.
Looks like Johnny Manziel is the new Tebow. Unfortunately for him, he is much more like the rest of us. He actually has some faults.

is he even 20 yet?
But supposedly he'll get ROCKED before his 21st birthday.
I admired his abilities throughout this past electrifying season. He has some serious talent, but with all of his constant headlines, it might be more appropriate to refer to him as JOHNNY CELEBRITY.

are you saying he won't have a big target on his back? He made the big SEC bad boys look like fools this season... SEC bad boys will aim low and high, it's just the truth of the matter. There may not be a bounty program in college, but there's something close to it. He took the SEC be surprise, won't happen again. He runs as much as he did last year, he will get rocked a few times.

Not sure how to respond. Are you serious?

Maybe. But it is one of his greatest talents. It was his feet that helped the Aggies to beat Alabama and Oklahoma last year. Should he stop running around in the pocket and quit extending plays?
Maybe we need to teach T-Mart to be a pocket passing QB?
I assumed this was a Johnny Stanton thread. We need to figure out this whole nickname thing soon.
Nah, he is Johnny America. Like the All-American kid.
He was also running behind what was probably the best OL in the country last seasons.
He won't get that kind of help this season.
I know SEC football better than i'd like to. They target players on defense, especially Florida, LSU, and Alabama. Not to injure them, but to hurt them. I'm not saying Johnny shouldn't run. What i'm saying is that since he's going to he'll get injured at some point. You can't run that much in the SEC and not get injured unless you're built like Cam Newton... and Johnny isn't. Add to that all the hype he is getting, Texas A&M fans are probably hoping this 19 year old isn't buying into it so much that he'll have a massive sophomore slump.
Just saying he'll have his work cut out for him next season, especially against the top defenses. There will be quit a few "late hit" calls in SEC games concerning Texas A&M next season.
Feed me to the wolves, and I will return leader of the pack. #FreeDA
Where would our Johnny be if not for national media and, social networking. It's all about building someone up then, knocking them down. You see that happening in today's society all the time.
This is sadly so true.
I like Johnny Manziel. He can flat out play. I just hope he doesn't end up like Matt Leinart though (where his football suffers because of his desire to be a celebrity).
Definitely going to be some extra "umpf" whenever someone hits him next year. Lets see if he is as tough as Taylor.
All these responses and everyone misses the point.
A suit just got filed, where Johnny Football can get paid legally to play for a College. Trademark your name, have a booster infring, Sue and get the money. A huge loophole. No more back room deals, just do it through the courts.
