Dude, don't get your panties in a wad. No one is digging anything up on the kid. He is just being a college student which everyone in here agrees with. Chillax.

Johnny Manziel is the "anti-Tebow". You've all grown accustomed to one or two ways today's student athletes are perceived. The most common is a rule breaking thug, who is boastful on and off the field and eventually gets caught with something illegal. Example "The Honey Badger".

Then there's stereotype #2. Far less prevalent, but certainly worthy enough for the same amount of scrutiny. This is the "Holier than thou" athlete who wears his emotions/religion/virginity on his sleeve. These types of players give motivational speeches that are plaque worthy. They are the kinda guy you want your daughter to marry mostly because you see no real threat from them character wise.

Johnny is neither. Quit trying to dig sh!t up on the kid. He's an extremely typical Texas kid who comes from money.

He'll beat your ass on the football field, then meet you and the boys afterwards at a pasture party to have few cold ones with his parent's consent because they'll be in attendance too. The next morning he'll probably wake up early to go shoot a 12 point, then head out to take his smokin hot arm candy out for a real nice steak dinner.

He's a typical Texas kid that does all the same stuff we all grew up doing, and he just so happens to be good at the game of football.

But folks like TMZ need a headline I suppose, and that's why Eric went to go see him and the folks. He's a target because there are vultures in society. Does he need to tap the brakes on twitter? Maybe. Does he have some folks out there that dislike him? Sure.

Has a broken a law or rule since the season started?
Best post i've ever read on this site.....I confess that I'm a Tebow fan and I am a Johnny-Football fan, too! Thanks for the REALITY check! GO VOLS!

the expression basically means short-lived fame based on little substance. Not applicable when it comes to Manziel

Not every kid on scholarship is from a poor family. I am sure Peyton Manning had plenty of pocket money when he was wondering around the hill.

Do what?? He's in America, son. Whatever he does is not his fault.

He is a douche because you are envious of him?
