PLAYERS: Johnny ManzielKevin Sumlin
TEAMS:

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has a whirlwind college experience. - Arrested in July 2011 - Won starting QB job at A&M - Became a sensation during the season and was dubbed Johnny Football - Led A&M to a road win against #1 Alabama - Finished the season with 11 wins - Won the Heisman - Did the late night thing … with Megan Fox - Sat courtside at NBA game - Had fun gambling … legally - TMZ released NYE party photos of Manziel with some Dom - School gets worried about image and eligibility Johnny Football has been taking heat for the last few things on that list. Oklahoma defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said of Manziel, “[he] might have three or four Heismans if they can keep him out of jail or keep him eligible.” While those may seem like harsh words from Stoops, if Manziel keeps pushing the limits he will find trouble before it finds him. Because Manziel is first-and-foremost a student, Texas A&M athletic director Eric Hyman had a sit-down with Mr Football and his parents where they discussed his new fame and how he should be dealing with it. “I told them he’s no longer a freshman, and he’s no longer a sophomore, junior or senior,” Hyman said Sunday. “He is a ‘Heisman.’” “It’s (about) education, and we’ve got to help the family and Johnny with the transition into being a Heisman award winner,” Hyman said. “There are things you have to learn*, and we have to help him with that.” Manziel may need to tone it down just a tad. That doesn’t mean he has to quit being a college freshman and grow up immediately, he just needs to consider who may be watching and how quickly social media can change the outcome of his career should he make a wrong move in public. [via MySA] * Obviously Mr Hyman has won several Heisman trophies, all as a freshman in college and then he gave up all fun and became a hermit where he did nothing but attend class and football practice like a perfect student.
