Manziel shocked by Te'o girlfriend hoax

By Associated Press

COLLEGE STATION, Texas >> Texas A&M Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel says his "mind was blown" when he learned of the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax.

Manziel has gotten to know Te'o, Notre Dame's Heisman runner-up, while attending various award ceremonies over the last month and a half. The pair spent time together this weekend at the Walter Camp Awards dinner.

Manziel says of the situation: "Nobody could believe that. It was a shock for the entire sports world ... and I'm just as shocked as anybody else."

Manziel has endured criticism recently for his own internet dealings after tweeting a picture of himself holding cash at a casino the day after the Aggies beat Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl.

He says he hasn't been told by anyone at the school to tone down his behavior on the internet, but that he might think twice before sending out certain tweets in the future.

Thank God Manziel won the big H award. Can you believe if they gave it to Mongie Manti? "I want to be an inspiration to all the people of Hawaii and my family, said Teo. Right, do you want my children to look up to you? You are more stupid then you think. To many head butts.

he would have been an inspiration to many more by staying home and representing hawaii instead of taking the more self glorifiying route.

Let's agree to disagree. Choosing a college should be family decision, not the State of Hawaii's.
