On Saturday, the 80th Heisman Trophy will be awarded. The expectation is that Oregon’s Marcus Mariota will walk away with the trophy. Mariota has earned the trophy by being consistently excellent all season long. When the Heisman Trophy comes up in conversation, there is often talk of a “Heisman Moment.” While Mariota doesn’t have one particular moment or game that should...

Notes on LSU @ Texas A&M 2014

The LSU defense did about as well as could be expected against Johnny Manziel… But as a more traditional passer, Kyle Allen presents a very different test. LSU was the only team that went 2-0 against “Johnny Football”, but as the captions above indicate, that’s not necessarily a reason for confidence going into this game. If you missed it, I wrote about LSU’s quarterback...

Former Texas A&M Aggies Johnny Manziel and Mike Evans made up one of the most prolific quarterback-wide receiver duos in college football last year.

Johnny Manziel knows what Todd Gurley is going through.

Johnny Manziel wants to offer advice to Jameis Winston

Winston still has a lot of growing up to do. His most recent incident—in which he stood on a table and yelled a vulgar phrase—could have cost the Seminoles big-time as he was suspended for the team’s game against Clemson. But Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is here to help. Manziel is reportedly planning to reach out and help guide Winston about how to deal with media attention...
