Johnny Manziel taking only online classes at Texas A&M

http://www.usatoday.com/story/gameon...asses/1929057/




Johnny Manziel has become the big man off campus.

The Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman winner said Monday night at the Davey O'Brien Award reception that all of his classes for this semester are online, though Texas A&M spokesman Brad Marquardt refused to confirm or deny Manziel's schedule in a phone call with USA TODAY Sports.

SPRING FOOTBALL: Dates for every FBS team

Manziel also told reporters at the reception that he's only on campus once every month.

Though the arrangement might seem odd, Manziel is well within his rights to tackle his course load online. He even tried to take an English course on campus this semester but had to drop it when his peers' requests for photos and autographs became too much.

"I didn't think anything of it, and it kind of turned into a little more of a big deal than I thought," Manziel said, according to the Associated Press.

Manziel's various outings since winning the Heisman sitting courtside at NBA games, attending the Super Bowl and being photographed at Mardi Gras have been well documented, and being under a microscope has taken a toll on him.

"I know plenty of friends who went down to Mardi Gras to New Orleans and other guys who went to the Super Bowl too," Manziel said. "I was down there with other college football guys too, so I don't know, people like to give me a hard time more than others. There's college kids doing what I'm doing all around the country. People just think I'm going wild with it, when it's not like that."

Some online classes I took were worth doing it online instead of a classroom. I wish I could have took a lot of the General Education classes that I had no desire to take, online instead of wasting my time in a classroom setting. The majority of my classes for my major I would have wanted to take in the classroom.

Which is fair, but I've felt some professors take it easier on GenEds that most people have no inclination of really caring about.

Keyword is some. I had a 200 level literature class that was an option for a "cultural artifact" class and the professor assigned 6-7 novels for close reading an analysis.

Including the Waste Land, which is ****ing annoying as hell.

Most annoying was the fact the professor routinely handed out B+/A- for grade, meaning you had to spend face time with said professor in discussing how he/she preferred you to edit the paper.

Manziel is never going to be a model citizen. He has a sense of entitlement, is probably a bit of an asshole, but that was happening before the Heisman as well. He's still a leader on the field though. Big time competitor and the players respect him. As far as all-time douches, I think the best comparison would be Brett Favre. Not Vince Young

Tebow at least works his ass off. He just doesn't have the talent to be an NFL quarterback.

I think the concensus among folks who have been out of school for a while is that online classes allow unlimited attempts at....cheating.

Which = academic scandal. And I mean aTm isn't Harvard. You know... where there are no scandals.

Sad Day.....hes leaving twitter



http://espn.go.com/college-football/...witter-account


COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Johnny Football is leaving Twitter.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, said Tuesday that he has self-imposed a Twitter ban in an attempt to keep his personal life more private.

Manziel has been stung in recent weeks by negative publicity from both on- and off-the-field incidents.

The latest controversy came Saturday, when media reports indicated Manziel shoved a Texas A&M graduate assistant after he threw one of his three interceptions during a spring scrimmage. Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin said he didn't see the confrontation, and Manziel and his teammates said the incident was overblown.

Since winning the Heisman and leading the Aggies to an 11-2 record in his first season as a starter in 2012, nearly every aspect of Manziel's life has become Internet fodder.

Photos of Manziel attending Mardi Gras, the Super Bowl [where he was spotted with the stars of "Duck Dynasty," Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel], NBA games and most recently spring break in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, made their way onto Twitter and other social media.

"I've kind of just shut it all off," Manziel said. "With how the media has been with me for a while, I just shut everything off. As of [Monday], I said I was done with [Twitter] for however long. It's fun to have, but it can get to be distracting at points."

Now, Manziel's more than 330,000 Twitter followers will have to find other ways to keep up with what's going on in his life.

"I'm surprised to [see] how the attention has continued through the offseason," Manziel said. "I guess I thought it would die off and slow down a little bit, but it really hasn't."

Manziel has tweeted nearly 3,000 times, but one of the more recent photos of him on the Internet caused a stir among Texas A&M fans. A photo of Manziel from spring break showed him wearing a Texas Longhorns tattoo. Manziel, who grew up a Texas fan, said the tattoo was only temporary and was a practical joke.

"It was just a fun deal," Manziel said. "Somebody dared me to do it, and we thought it would be funny."

Meanwhile, Texas A&M is trying to cash in on the Aggies' unexpected success in their first season in the SEC. The school's athletics department is planning a $480 million expansion of Kyle Field, which would be the most expensive stadium expansion in college football history.

The project, which would begin after the 2013 season, would increase the stadium's capacity to around 102,000, according to sources with knowledge of the project. Tennessee's Neyland Stadium is the largest stadium in the SEC with a capacity of 102,455.

The school's board of regents will vote May 1-2 on whether to approve the project.

The project would include enclosing the south end of the stadium, replacing the lower deck of the east side, and completely demolishing and rebuilding the west side, including the upper levels and press box. A club area and new scoreboard also would be part of the south end zone project, which would be connected to the Aggies' new dining hall, which is scheduled for completion in September.

I'd be happy to be eaten by a hippo if it means we draft Manziel. I just don't understand why some people think he sucks. There's not one aspect of his game that is lacking,especially for a freshman.
