Heisman Hopeful Johnny Manziel Gets Worst Endorsement Ever [VIDEO]
Believe it or not, this video is so bad, that it could actually hurt Johnny Football’s Heisman chances.
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has had one heck of a season for the Aggies. The redshirt freshman QB completed 68.3% of his passes for 3,419 yards with 24 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. Manziel also rushed for 1,181 yards and 19 touchdowns. Those numbers are insane.
Johnny Football led #9 Texas A&M to a 10-2 record this season including an enormous road win against top-ranked (at the time) Alabama. Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o has also had an exceptional season for the #1 Fighting Irish. Te’o recorded over 100 tackles and seven interceptions for Notre Dame.
If I were breaking the tie between these two Heisman candidates based on this awful video endorsing Johnny Manziel, Te’o would be the clear winner. What in the world was this lady thinking? My favorite moment occurs at the 1:34 mark when this lady tells former Notre Dame head coach Lou Holtz to capitulate. Wow, capitulate? Really?
By the way, is it bad of me to wonder if this lady, despite being crazy, might’ve looked pretty good back in the day? Anyway, aside from this peculiar video from this off-the-wall lady, I’d settle the Heisman debate like this; if you had a team in college football (it could be any team) and you asked me if I’d rather have my QB put up the numbers Manziel put up, or my linebacker put up the numbers that Te’o put up while being the heart and soul of that team, I’d take Manziel’s production.
Manziel did more this season. He should win the Heisman Trophy. Look, I’m from South Bend, IN for cryin out loud. I bleed Notre Dame football. I’ve watched every ND game and I’m fully aware of what Te’o has meant to the Irish. I’ve gushed about this guy on “The Noe Show” repeatedly. However, the most valuable season in the land belongs to Johnny Manziel. He simply did more and should get the hardware.
