Texas A&M launches Heisman website on Johnny Manziel’s behalf

Despite not allowing its star freshman quarterback to talk to the media and recently stating a “no Heisman campaign policy,” Texas A&M launched a Heisman website on behalf of Johnny Manziel this week.

The website, johnnyfootball.aggieathletics.com, features a bio, videos, accolades and a nifty, interactive stat tool that allows visitors to compare Manziel’s numbers with those of his Heisman competitors.

The latest entry into the Heisman campaign field comes on the heels of Manziel’s brilliant performance in leading the Aggies over No. 1 Alabama last Saturday.

Heisman front-runner Collin Klein has a web site, too, while USC wide receiver Marqise Lee and Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch have promotional videos supporting their candidacies.

    “stating a “no Heisman campaign policy”

    This is a misrepresentation, intentional or otherwise, Im sure you’ll want to correct it. No such policy existed.

    There is a policy made by the head coach of Freshman not speaking to the media until after the season. This applies to all freshman, no matter if they are third string kickers or Heisman Front Runners.

    Surely heimanpundit.com has fact checker or two. Journalists use them, their valuable.

      Did you read the linked article?

      “Texas A&M decided the best campaign was no formal campaign at all.”
