Dan asked Manziel if he had told him six months ago he was going to win the Heisman, what would he have said. “I would have said you’re crazy,” Manziel responded.
Manziel said that everything got wild after the regular season ended. “Times were crazy,” Manziel said. “Couldn’t go eat anywhere without being recognized.”
Manziel talked about the high expectations next season. “I don’t feel like I have to do anything more,” Manziel said. “Going into Spring, big thing is rallying the troops and get the motor running toward a national championship.”
Dan asked if he’d switch places with Manti T’eo to be in the title game and second place in the Heisman. “I would rather be in the national title game,” Manziel said.
Manziel said that he worked with a group of people at Texas A&M on his Heisman speech. “I really wanted to make it like I wasn’t reading it,” Manziel said.
Manziel said that he hasn’t thought about the NFL yet. But he won’t guarantee anything about his future, as far as how long he stays at college.
“This year in the NFL is kind of “evolutionizing” the quarterback position,” Manziel said. He noted Russell Wilson’s success and RGIII’s incredible rookie year.
