Heisman winner one, Cfhicago provincialism nothing

This Texas A&M player whom Chi newspaper-readers never heard of won Heisman over Notre Dame’s Te’o. Who’d a-thunk it?

His popularity hit a fever pitch against Alabama when he used his feet, instincts and A&M’s up-tempo offense to take down the nation’s No. 1 team. Against the nation’s top defense, he completed 24-of-31 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 92 yards.

From that game on, the Heisman was Manziel’s to lose.

Really? We wuz robbed, say Trib and Sun-Times readers, who find nothing but Notre Dame, day in and day out. Provincialism, yes.

    Johnny Football has a record.

    Only five months before receiving New York’s Heisman trophy, Jonathan Manziel was arrested and jailed (Friday, June 29, 2012 at 2:10 A.M.) following his racially charged fistfight with a 47-year-old Black guy whom Manziel’s friend had called a “Nigger.”

    Manziel’s arrest occurred after a police officer intervened to break up the fistfight between Johnny Football and 47-year-old Marvin McKinney. Manziel then produced a fake Louisiana driver’s license to police officers. When police searched him, they found two Texas Driver’s Licenses, one fraudulent.

    The criminal court charges against Jonathan Manziel are still pending.

    Manziel, a 20-year-old freshman, too short to be an NFL professional quarterback, is the most inexperienced player to ever win New York’s Heisman trophy.

    The Heisman award has always been biased against 17 of the 22 positions on a football team. Now, character and maturity are no longer considerations for Heisman voters.
