    You can't deny Johnny Manziel based on his stats in 2012.

    I suspect there will be a good rivalry between him and Everett Golsen from ND in the next 3 seasons.

    Golsen is awesome. Another Russell Wilson.

    Both Johnny Football and Golsen will have defeated Alabama.

    Paul Hornung was in the lineup of former Heisman winners - where was OJ?

    Alabama is already the National Champions, the game against the patsies from ND is merely a formality.

    OK - whatever.

    Last ND game I was really scared over was when ND played #1 USC in the LA Coliseum in 1972 - aquited themselves well - having the lead in the 3rd qtr before losing 45-23.

    Won the NC the next season.

    You guys aint no 1972 USC I can tell you that.

    Hornung did not deserve the Heisman over Jim Brown

    Manziel has a weirder throwing motion than Tim Tebow.

    Safe to say he won't be a starting QB in the NFL.

    Good human-interest story though.

    There is something fishy about "freshman" Johnny "football". The dude looks like he is about 35 years old.

    :eek:

    The Heisman voters made the right choice. Big margin of victory.

    Manziel doesn't look that old to me.

    Of course - when I was 14 - I looked about 11.
