Johnny Manziel Should Be Stripped of His Heisman Trophy

Johnny Manziel

This story just keeps on getting worse and worse for Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel a.k.a. Johnny Football. If the stories about him charging a reported $7,500 for autographs are true, it will not bode well. The NCAA will look back into the 2012 season, besides this off-season, and if they find anything they might start to strip stats and wins away. Ultimately they will have no choice but to strip Manziel of the Heisman Trophy that he won last year where it’ll either remain vacant or go to the person who placed second in Manti Te’o.

With winning the Heisman Trophy comes greater pressure to be a model citizen in every step of the way, as cameras will seemingly be always on you. Since winning the prestigious trophy, Manziel has been in the limelight for all the wrong reasons including underage drinking, being thrown out of frat parties and traveling seemingly everywhere and meeting A-List celebrities and athletes.

Granted he is only a red-shirt sophomore, but it is extremely likely that he might turn pro after the 2013 season just to start the new phase in his life. If in fact Manziel does turn pro, the magnifying glass will only get more intense between all the team scouts and the press poking and prodding to get every last drop of info out of him. Then there are the professional football players that will be gunning for him while being bigger, stronger and faster than he ever saw for the Aggies.

All in all, it should be interesting to see what if anything happens to Johnny Manziel including his Heisman Trophy win.

    Is this your first attempt at journalism, Scott?
    Just a suggestion, but Rovell or Schad might not be the best of mentors.
    The absence of facts and/or evidence is understandably making this story ring hollow.
