As with most things, I'll take the "wait and see" approach.
He appears a bit too cocky for my taste, but there is no crime there and I could say the same thing about certain OU players over the years.
IF there are other issues stemming from immaturity he will either figure it out and correct it OR it will catch up with him and we will all see the crap hit the fan when it does.
It is clear he is a very good player hence the Heisman but the taunting I witnessed was out of line and could have shown excitement to rally his guys another way but then again that is something our guys could have did something about if pride was a factor but did not, if a goofy looking 6 foot 180 pound white boy standing over you having a personal dance party in your face does not get you fired up nothing will.
didn't seem to affect his play any of course i quit watching about mid way through the 3rd quarter.
Anyone that calls a college football player "Johnny Football" is a queer. I didn't make that rule but it is fact.
Now THAT is funny.
Canadian football league and work his way up like Moon and Flutie...lol
why should he leave college football apprently he's having the time of his young life and after seeing the photos he's not hurting for money and with aTm playing in the sec he will get plenty of pub thanks to esecpn so i can't think of a reason he would leave.
How about lots of Money?
I am not convinced he will play in the NFL. He has not shown an NFL arm.
I agree he is like the duck QB's they don't fit. The reason RG III and Wilson and Kapernick fit is because they are also great passer's.
They are also one hit away from losing their dual threat ability and becoming solely passers. As what happened to RGIII. He may not be the same player next year. Johhny's game does not translate in my opinion. The guy looks to run to much, he will get rocked.
Landry has no pulse? Did you just get back from Siberia? Landry showed a pulse in close victories over Baylor,OSU,WVU. Landry had one hell of a pulse when he ditched Heupel's awful play call to a slant to Stills to win the WVU game.
The two best professional rookies in 2010 and both from Oklahoma City,Oklahoma.
Say what you want about Johnny but in his last 5 games he completed 74% of his passes as well as 24-31 against BAMA and over 100 yards rushing. The kid is a star like no other has ever been as a true freshmen.
He was a redshirt freshman this year and I guess you don't remember Adrian Peterson's true freshman year.
Johnny f*#&ing football is his real nickname. He kicked our ass. I hope we have one like him in the fold.
Or you missed that Johnny was a runaway winner of the Heismen and AD was not.
I knew that and should have paid more attention. What I was referring to was that he was the first true freshmen winner of the Heismen
Again, Manziel was NOT a true freshman this year, he was a redshirt freshman. Peterson WAS a true freshman when he came in 2nd in the Heisman voting (and should have won.)

Again I meant first freshman to win the Heisman. I am fully aware of Manziel's redshirting last year as I knew his position coach and knew about him long before this year.
regardless true freshmen,redshirt freshmen or you name it he is the most ballyhooed ever.
what a nasty thing to say!
Johnny H didn't have the number 3 vote getter on his team like AD did either. Apples, oranges and grapes.
