Johnny Manziel is at it again, folks. If you’re looking for a quality football player who does things for shock value — or maybe because he has just a couple months left of being a ‘college kid’ — look no further than Johnny Football. In fact, the former Oregon Ducks commit and former Texas A&M Aggies star posted a picture on his Instagram of his new pair of shoes.
What’s so special about Manziel posting a picture of his new shoes? I mean, he does get publicity for just about everything he does. This pair of shoes will make you shake your head a little bit because of Manziel’s love (or not?) for Texas A&M.
Someone please tell me why the former Heisman winner is wearing shoes with an Oregon Ducks logo on the back of them and posting it to his own Instagram. He is just turning himself in on this one and he could care less who sees it.
Okay, Johnny, I have some advice for you: stick to your school and stop supporting the school that you turned down in the recruiting process.
Sure, those shoes are awesome and, heck, I might even consider buying a pair if I were an Oregon fan, but you were recruited by the Ducks, committed to the Ducks and turned them down to go to Texas A&M.
I would never consider posting a picture of myself wearing Oregon shoes, a possible college football opponent, if I was the former Heisman-winning quarterback who played for Texas A&M. Johnny Football, this was a complete failure on your part.
UPDATE: It has been revealed that the shoes were a gift. This, however, doesn’t make it any better for Manziel.
