Johnny Manziel Gains Respect, But Did His Heisman Trophy Hopes Take A Hit?
College football isn’t fair.
Similar to Teddy Bridgewater of the Louisville Cardinals; Johnny Manziel‘s hopes of winning a second straight Heisman Trophy have taken a turn for the worst and their isn’t much that he can do. The Texas A&M Aggies lost their second game of the season in Week 8 as the Auburn Tigers went into Kyle Field and absolutely exploited the Aggies’ sub-par defense. Unfortunately, a five-touchdown effort from Johnny Football was wasted as Texas A&M’s defense blew a fourth-quarter lead and allowed the Tigers to finish the game with 379 rush yards.
Now, that his team has fallen into a 5-2 hole many college football experts have left Manziel for dead now in terms of the Heisman Trophy race.
While it’s going to be hard for Manziel to prove that he still deserves the illustrious trophy; the bronze accolade is hardly out of Mr. Football’s reach. In fact, this sophomore quarterback is on pace to shatter his 2012 totals in touchdowns, passing yards and rushing yards. It would be downright shameful to see Manziel’s efforts in the grueling SEC go to waste, and to see another quarterback receive an honor that belongs to No. 2.
