08:24 AM ET 03.04 | For one, Johnny Manziel doesn't understand his own hype. [Manziel] says he's still the same person after winning the Heisman Trophy as he was before achieving the honor, even though he's treated much differently now than he was a year ago. In an interview with ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit, Manziel says his life has been "pure chaos" because of the change in his schedule after winning the Heisman, but fans "make it out to a bigger deal than it really is to me." "I still see myself as the same person I was before," the sophomore quarterback told ESPN. "If somebody wants to come up to me and freak out, I don't get it. I don't understand it. ... I still see myself as young, the same guy I was before I ever won the Heisman."

never saw the pics of him flashing wads of cash, putting on that $25,000 gold Rolex or the model girl friend before the heisman.... but that's what winning it will do to you if you aren't a grounded person.

IF..... and that's a huge "if", he has a great season next year it will be his last in college.

All the nation's kids are huge fans of his! Have you seen those videos with "Dude Perfect"? As a protective parent I just hope he keeps it together and respects his new role. You'd understand if you had 8 year olds!

Agree. He won't sneak up on anyone next year, especially in the SEC. They will be pinning their ears back and blitz, blitz, blitzing.

Keep those legs fresh young man.

Solid QB that will never win a championship. Bama has built a dynasty and several others in the SEC are much better next year. Outside the conference there are 5 teams that will be solid. This is a solid QB with a very average defense in a conference defense will determine your end result. If they had stayed in the 12, maybe but not in the SEC where Bama stands in the way and they are better next year. Georgia, Florida, LSU, Carolina are also strong with an improved Vandy.

No it won't be his last year. Manziel will be eligible to be drafted after his junior year at the earliest. (April 2015 draft). He has a minimum of two years to go.
