told me last night that this year will be Johnny's last, FWIW.
Is she hot?
Your will to win will define you tomorrow.

Are you from Tyler?
Anyone surprised? Nope.
Yes, I live in Tyler and see his Grandmother every couple of weeks.
I don't believe a thing I read or on that front this early in the process. So much can and will happen between now and then. Injuries, sophomore slump, etc. could all happen. Of course I hope he plays lights out and proves himself in the pocket and has a tough decision to make.
I wonder what this really means though. I have no doubt he's gone if he's a first round pick...but what if he's a projected second or third? Would be pretty bizarre to leave under that scenario.
Are you the same guy that came on here a couple of weeks ago and said his grandmother said Johnny was staying until he got his degree?
Don't tell us. Tell Kenny Hill
I just don't see Johnny going in the first round. The guy is 5'10 and has very limited arm strength. He's an incredible player and I could definitely be wrong, but I just don't see how he goes 1st round after his redshirt soph. year.
Mullet-I did say that. Johnny is already a Junior by classification. Apparently, they feel he can get his degree in the next year or year and a half.
Maybe Jerry can redeem himself and buy Johnny...after he wins us a championship of course.
I think Johnny's decision on when he leaves A&M will be based more on his endorsement opportunities than what round he is drafted as long as he gets drafted. He's a Heisman winner, he'll get drafted and given an opportunity, after that it's up to him. But he won't be able to continue to turn down endorsement offers too much longer.
Jerry jones will not pass up the opportunity to draft him if he's still available for the cowboys pick
Endorsement offers? LOL
How many endorsement deals does Troy Smith have? Just because you win a Heisman it does not mean people beat your door down with endorsement deals. Better go back through the winners and check yourself.
Seen Matt Lienert doing anything but Heisman House commercials? He was pretty damn good at SC.
Johnny has a lot of work to do before he plays QB in the NFL.
None of them are name Johnny Football either. Look at how much exposure he's getting. I bet he is already getting offers he has to pass up. Look at Tebow, he sucks, and he's making money off endorsements. Johnny will make more off of endorsements than he will playing football IMO. He's got the personality, the hype, and he's exciting to watch. If he has another good season, he's going to make a ton of money!
Doubt JFF really cares what round he's projected to go in. If anything, a lower round projection will just be fuel to his burning desire to prove the doubters wrong. I bet he just wants to get to the next level and start showing the haters are wrong. He's pretty driven. And I don't think it's money he's after.
Russell Wilson is proving you don't have to be 6 foot to play QB in the NFL.
I get what you're saying, but you don't see guys that aren't high draft picks leaving for the NFL to "prove the haters wrong". You stay in school, try and improve you're stock, and enjoy college.
Even if things went south in the NFL, which I certainly hope doesn't happen, he could be the King of Kerrville and sell a shit-ton of used pick-up trucks and deer-feeders.
"So come on down to Johnny Football's Outdoor Super-store, where we "scramble" to get you the best deal and everyone gets treated like the Heisman Trophy winner!"
IMO, this is all being said because Johnny believes he will win another Heisman and the NC this year. He doesn't seem like the type of guy that would expect anything less..
If so, good luck in the NFL Mr. Football, thanks for the two Heismans and the national championship.
If we don't, I think we'll see him back to win it all. He's just thinking he's going because he truly believes after this year he would have won everything he could have and not considered the alternative.
I could see that but it depends heavily on his performance in 2013. I think he can play fluid way into being a top 10 pick, in which case it is a no-brainer, but he has to be as good or better than last season. This would be great for us so I'm ok with it.
Pics or GTFO!
I believe he has about a years worth of classes left to graduate.
