If the Heisman Trophy has driven a competitive wedge between Manti Te'o and Johnny Manziel, you couldn't sense it Friday afternoon in a stuffy hotel ballroom in Times Square, where the two frontrunners for college football's most prestigious award met with the media in advance of Saturday night's trophy ceremony.
With reporters from Manhattan to Maui on hand, Notre Dame linebacker Te'o and Texas A&M quarterback Manziel spent more than a half-hour heaping lavish praise upon one another -- as well as third Heisman finalist Collin Klein -- and there wasn't an ounce of hostility or animosity to be found.
"Whoever wins deserves to win; they didn't win by luck," said Te'o, who will look to become the record-setting eighth Notre Dame player to win the award. "(Manziel) and Collin have proven themselves and they deserve to be here, and whoever wins was supposed to."
Though they had met just one day prior, at the college football awa...

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...
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...
What could be a big week for Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is already off to a roaring start.

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...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Johnny Football just got himself a way cooler nickname: Johnny Heisman.

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&...
