Texas A&M Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel says his ''mind was blown'' when he learned of the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax.
Manziel has gotten to know Te'o, Notre Dame's Heisman runner-up, while attending various award ceremonies over the last month and a half. The pair spent time together this weekend at the Walter Camp Awards dinner.
Manziel says of the situation: ''Nobody could believe that. It was a shock for the entire sports world ... and I'm just as shocked as anybody else.''
Manziel has endured criticism recently for his own internet dealings after tweeting a picture of himself holding cash at a casino the day after the Aggies beat Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl.
He says he hasn't been told by anyone at the school to tone down his behavior on the internet, but that he might think twice before sending out certain tweets in the future.

What’s a week in January 2013 without talking about the activities of one Johnny Manziel? A municipal judge in Ennis, Texas, the dishonorable Lee Johnson, apparently tattled on the Texas A&M Aggies star quarterback.

Is there anything else ESPN wants Johnny Manziel to prove? The guy can even provide color commentary before a Texas A&M basketball game. What did Manziel have to say. No idea. We don’t watch Thursday night college basketball in January. Rules are rules.
As for the game, Florida thumped the Aggies, 68-47. We’ll assume Johnny left early for a College Station power hour.

The Aggies of Texas A&M, fresh off a Heisman...
