08:10 AM ET 01.16 | It's a brand new world for Johnny Heisman, and his school would like him to know it. Texas A&M athletic director Eric Hyman sat down with Johnny Manziel's parents recently and discussed the star quarterback's new title. "I told them he's no longer a freshman, and he's no longer a sophomore, junior or senior," Hyman said Sunday. "He is a 'Heisman.'" After the Kerrville Tivy-ex won the Heisman Trophy on Dec. 8, he became a target of the gossip website TMZ.com, which released pictures of Manziel partying at a Dallas bar. His parents were present, the site later reported, and no one saw the 20-year-old drink. The night before, Manziel had posted a picture (later removed) of himself on Twitter fanning cash in an Oklahoma casino.

Exactly. Since when was it ok to have fun in college or hell as a 20 yr old. What was he thinking???

Jeezus H. Tebow, nothing but more media-driven-drivel right here.

He went to a Dallas bar, with his parents, no one saw him take a single drink, and there's a TMZ report about that?


smh

You forgot about the cult ****.

WTF is an AD doing talking directly with a player. They should be running the fricking athlete dept not talking about the social life of a college kid.

It sounds like his parents are having just as much fun tagging along.

I'm sorry to have to tell you, but going to a Dallas bar with your parents, and not drinking IS living like a rock star for an aggie.

I would start in Dallas....drop a few grand on Greenville and Deep Elem, then hop a ride to Austin and end the night on 6th street chasing the best quality/quanity co-eds I've ever seen.

And that would be a Tuesday night.......every Tuesday nite.

Step out from behind the sheep, young man, and enjoy your life!

I saw a extended TV interview with Manziel during Cotton Bowl week in Dallas. I was impressed how he handled himself and how he answered some tough questions. His head seemed to be screwed on very straight and he seems mature for a kid his age. That interview holds more water than the drama being manufactured by the San Antonio Express.

Or course it IS the San Antonio Express and they cater to the infamous San Antonio booster mafia.

UTSA should be their concern, now. Floggin' Aggies in the press is akin to ovine abuse. Anyone within 3 degrees of separation from moral norms will shun the rag and it's reporters for this belly slide in sewage.

You can get away with alot more if you just SHUT DOWN THE FRICKIN' TWITTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the biggest naivety of this generation is that they think Facebook and Twitter are private.

San Antonio is one of those "one team towns". Their world revolves around the Spurs because that's all they really have.

The San Antonio Express provides coverage for the Spurs and ... the Spurs. From time to time they write a glowing article about the Aggies, whether it's deserved or not, most likely with the intent of getting under Red McCombs' skin.
