Manziel outpoints Te'o for another award

By Star-Advertiser staff


Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel beat out Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te‘o for another award, the Associated Press college football player of the year, today.

The AP said Manziel, who out-pointed Te‘o for the Heisman, received 31 votes from AP voters for the player of the year award, more than doubling Te‘o's total.

Manziel is the third consecutive Heisman winner to also take the AP award.

The AP is scheduled to announce its Coach of the Year later this week.

I agree, no way should he have even been a candidate for the heisman the same year that he was arrested. He was only a freshman, not to mention with two losses on his record. I can't believe how everyone just ignored his arrest record. Compared to our man and all he has done on and off the field for not only Notre Dame but college football. What a role model for young kids to look up to. Johnny is good but the heisman is also about character. At least that's what it suppose to be about. I guess money always win and I know it played a big part on the heisman outcome. I like three day old poi, but not one month old, sour taste in my mouth!

Exactly. The guys has some baggage. Te'o show four years of walking the long and narrow, let's see if Johnny can do the same. I will bet not.

Too bad for "Johnny Football". The expectations for him have increased by leaps and bounds now, perhaps too much for him to meet.

Johnny Football will quickly become just a trivia question. You think the defenses he sees next year are going to roll over and let him punk them again? Good luck JF, you're going to need it!

When Teo was quoted he wanted to win the Heisman for Hawaii, from that moment on I felt things will start going against him winning the Heisman and now this.. If it is true that character has a bearing on a nominee than Manziel should not have won the Hesiman or the AP player of the year. Was it not Reggie Bush who got stripped of the Heisman for his receiving of someithing which is basically an NCAA violation? So whatever Manziel arrest was for and if he was found guilty how could that be any less than an NCAA violation. Hawaii has been given the short end again. We must look like another country to the mainlanders.
