    Hoping for a crash and burn douche speech after this Heisman win.

    He absolutely deserves this. Great story with being a walk-on. But man he has very little class when competing.

    I had heard bad things about him but don't know much either way.
    Douchey and maybe a bit arrogant and classless is what I have heard
    but
    I don't know any instances. . . .

    What's his story?

    I think he's overrated and won't be very good on the next level.

    Integrity is supposed to be one of the factors voters are to take into account. They did not do that this year.

    If this guy wasn't such an asshole I would love his story. It pisses me off how much of a pass he gets in the media.

    Thanks. Interesting.

    This is what someone else was complaining about
    I did not know anything about him . . . .

    I take it he is very talented. . . . . . Johnny Manzel 2.0 *grin*
    Bigger . .. Stronger . . . Better. . . . Doucheyer!!! LOL

    I give him a pass for the Kansas game. Kansas would not shake his hand at the coin toss and they made late dirty tackles on him throughout the game.

    Being great in college and being "good on the next level" are totally exclusive.

    He's an ass for sure, but as far as I know he's never beaten or assaulted anyone, or driven drunk, or anything that endangers the public. Could be wrong.

    He has been arrested before but like you said being good on the next level is exclusive.

    I don't like him, not sure why. Seems like a jerk, the kid you never liked in school.

    You mean you don't like grown men who trash talk high schoolers on twitter?

    He's Manziel with a bit less hype, twice the talent, none of the drug habit, and actually half of a functional brain.

    Perhaps but he strikes me as Manziel Chapter 2. And He has all of the arrogance and hubris that helped make Manziel what he is today - on his "Comeback SZN" PR and bullshit tour. BTW, to which half of the brain are you referring?

    I hope the Jags draft him. He'd be great fun to hate two games every year.
