Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel joined the show to talk about his offseason.

Dan asked if some of the media criticism is getting to him. “I’m OK with the criticism,” Manziel said. “I’m used to it.”

Manziel confirmed that he’s taking most of his classes online for Texas A&M. But he does do a sports management class in person.

Dan asked about possibly leaving for the NFL after next season. Manziel says he loves it at Texas A&M and there are a lot of advantages to being there.

Manziel also talked about the way NFL evaluators view him. “I feel like I have plenty of arm,” Manziel said. “I feel like I could throw close to 70 [yards].”

Dan asked about him being seen in the crowd at pro sporting events. Manziel said he’s very careful: Before I go anywhere …  any basketball game, the Super Bowl … I check with compliance,” Manziel said. “I think there’s such a stereotype about student athletes … the situation I’m in with my family being able to buy me tickets … I’m extremely blessed.”

Manziel said he loved meeting LeBron James and Shaq and they were both very cool and helpful.

Dan asked Manziel to look back at the Alabama game. Manziel said the key for him was playing a “full, complete team game.” Manziel said both defense and offense deserved credit for beating the Tide.

Dan also asked about Ryan Swope speculating on Manziel’s 40. Manziel said that he could probably run a 4.5. He said there’s no way he can run like Swope, who ran a 4.34.

Manziel described his ManCave. He said he has a flat screen and a ping-pong table. But his parents have his Heisman trophy.

Dan asked the coolest thing he’s done with his Heisman. Manziel said visiting a child with cancer was the No. 1 highlight.
