I am struggling to figure out what it is about Johnny Manziel that so many members of the media don’t like.
In the video posted below, it appears that Lou Holtz thinks that Manziel is “out of control,” although he doesn’t explain exactly why he thinks this. However, what is more confusing is that Holtz is bothered by the fact that Manziel was wearing a visor and had a towel around his neck (towards the end of the game). I could understand if Holtz didn’t like Manziel due to his recent NCAA investigation, however, I will never understand what it is about his visor that upsets Holtz.
See video below at about 00:00:41 second mark:
I guess that some people are just going to dislike Manziel no matter what he does. However, if Manziel wants Lou Holtz on his side, he had better ditch the visor.
And what about Mark May’s comments? Read this first and then ask yourself if you still think May is the best person to comment on anything related to Johnny Manziel.
*Note: Holtz also said that if he were Manziel’s coach, he would “have grabbed him by the throat.”
i never liked chip kelly’s visor. makes him look like a dork. to each his own. however, he’ll always be visor head kelly to me. i like lou but he has issues as there is whispering of him getting away with NCAA violations while he was at the golden dome and/or s. carolina. don’t care much for mr. may. as for johnny, you know what i think if you’ve read my first 2 college blogs for this season.
I like Lou too….but sometimes he gets a little carried away.
I don’t think I saw your posts on Manziel. Feel free to re-post them here in the comments if you want. I would like to check them out.
yeah, lou does go a bit over at times. thought you were one of my followers. maybe not. they’re my first 2 posts of the college season for week 1 and week 2. i’d consider reposting them but they total around 3,000 words. might be a better idea if you went to my site. thanks anyways.
I do follow your blog and I enjoy it. I just seem to have missed those posts. I will go back and find them!!
Do you seriously not understand why he is so hated, or was that completely rhetorical?
I seriously do not understand.
Well, here is my extremely boisterous declaration of why I, and at least 8 Heisman voters, hate Manziel.
I see that you are an Alabama fan, is that correct? I would hope that has nothing to do with your hatred towards Manziel.
I found your post amusing. You are welcome to your own opinion, however, I would have found it helpful if you had given some examples of this awful behavior that you mentioned (or, an example of the behavior that bothered you so much).
As for the 8 Heisman voters that you said “hate” Manziel, the are entitled to their opinion as well. After all, it is their opinion that they vote with….and that is what the Heisman Trust asks of them. However, which eight voters are you talking about? I thought you would have mentioned them in your post.
Anyway….thanks for the post. I look forward to the discussion.
I will answer you over the weekend. I am working on a literary commitment right now.
Don’t miss Bama beating TAMU 56-21 tomorrow! ROLL TIDE!!!
