Let me preface this by saying that this has nothing to do with wanting Charles Woodson to stay as the only primarily defensive player to ever win the Heisman. I thought that Ndamukong Suh deserved the Heisman when he was up for it in 2009, and it is only a matter of time until a defensive player wins it. However, it does have everything to do with the Notre Dame bias in the media.
I don’t doubt that Manti is a great guy and that he is a leader on and off-the-field. I know he has had a troubling year, and I wouldn’t wish what happened to him on anyone. But you have to ask yourself, if Manti played on a team that wasn’t undefeated, and it wasn’t Notre Dame, would he even be in the discussion for it? Absolutely not. His statistics aren’t anything special, except for the 7 interceptions that he has had. Think of this, if Texas A&M was undefeated and Manziel’s stats were the same, he would have been the only person invited to the ceremony in New York.

Texas A&M freshman Johnny Manziel is the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner. He’s the first freshman to win the award. His numbers were better than Cam Newton’s when Newton won the award, whose numbers were better than Tim Tebow’s when he won. It really shouldn’t have been as close as it was. While Manziel won by a decent margin, he was easily the best player in the country and...
As we head into the stretch run of the regular season, the Green Bay Packers and head coach Mike McCarthy seem to be preparing for both Charles Woodson and Clay Matthews to return to the line up next week against the Bears. McCarthy wanted both Woodson (collarbone) and Matthews (hamstring) in pads doing a limited amount of banging around because the team will not be in pads next...
Johnny Manziel was understandably wide-eyed, but he certainly didn't look, or sound, like a freshman as he hugged his parents, said a few calming words to his tearful dad, John Paul, and coolly strolled to the stage to accept the Heisman Trophy on Saturday.
He also didn't appear flustered or sound like he was new to addressing a crowd when he offered a polished and selfless...
No one knows exactly what winning the Heisman Trophy requires. We do have an idea of what you can't do.
You can't play just defense. Unless you're Archie Griffin, you can't win it twice. You can't be an offensive lineman.
You couldn't win it as a freshman until Saturday night, when Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel snagged the award in a decisive...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Johnny Football just got himself a way cooler nickname: Johnny Heisman.
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, taking college football's top individual prize Saturday night after a record-breaking debut.
Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o finished a distant second and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein...
It was moment unlike any other in the Heisman Trophys existence.
The freshman, the first ever to win the storied award in its 78 years, stood with the collected past winners behind him, dozens more peering back from the portraits lining the wall in Best Buy Theater in Times Square.
Johnny Manziel took a deep breath, letting out a whoo before the Texas A&M quarterback broke...
He’s Johnny Heisman now. There is a lot to like about Johnny Manziel, and our universe has been infatuated with everything he’s done in his breakthrough season. His first name rhymes with iconic actor Denzel Washington, he was a backup quarterback and YouTube sensation at one point.
It finally was a moment when Manziel arrived at Texas A&M, where he made a statement and cemented...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Heisman Trophy history suggests it will never get better for Johnny Manziel than it did this season. In the 78-year history of the Heisman, only one player has one more than one: Ohio State's Archie Griffin in 1974 and 75.
But even if another Heisman is not in Johnny Football's his future, there's still plenty left for Johnny Football and Texas A&...
With a few days left until bowl games kick off, it is a relatively slow week in the world of college football. Well, except in College Station, TX, where Kevin Sumlin just put a new toy under the Christmas tree for Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Johnny Manziel.
That toy is Ricky Seals-Jones, the top high school wide receiver in the country who on Monday, announced via...
The latest results of the Discover Fan Loyalty Poll asked the question if college football fans would rather receive gifts this Holiday season as per usual, or if they would forego receiving presents in order to watch their favorite team win the BCS Championship. In a very close vote, 46 percent of fans opted for presents, while 42 percent said they would trade in all of their Holiday...
For the Packers, safety Charles Woodson, running back James Starks, linebackers Clay Matthews and Terrell Manning, wide receiver Jordy Nelson and defensive ends Mike Neal and C.J. Wilson will sit out. Source: MLive.com Attached Thumbnails
