There is and will be much written about the redshirt freshman phenom, the first freshman to win the award.
Here is an excellent article from Fox News on the young man.
Having won the prestigious award and the permanent inclusion into a small club, his life is forever changed. Unknown to most just a few months ago, that has ended and the remainder of his college career will be compared to this magical season.
Now the speculation begins, as to how he will conduct himself on and off the field, and if the Heisman will effect his performance in the upcoming Cotton Bowl. Considering how distracting all the attention, interviews, travel and ego stroking that occurs leading up to the bowl game, it is not surprising how often the Heisman winner is on the losing team.
Back on Earth, it is important to note that Manziel is, when all is said and done, a twenty year old human. He has had at least one scrape with the law this year, leading to an arrest. I haven’t looked into what the disposition of those charges are/were.
As an OU fan, I certainly hope the Sooners take care of business and defeat the Aggies on 4 Jan 13 at Jerry’s Death Star. If the current Heisman winner parties too hardy and isn’t in peak form for the game, all the better. The kid can play.
