“I still see myself as young, the same guy I was before I ever won the Heisman. Hopefully my friends still feel I'm the same way. I just want people to know I'm still the same person I've always been.”
“The thing that's caught me off guard is going to dinner and people asking me for autographs or to take a picture. People coming to my house asking for autographs - that's something I really haven't grasped the whole entirety of yet.”
“I don't see myself as Johnny Football.”

He has come under fire not only for flipping off his opponents on Aug. 19, but also for his off-field behavior during the 2013 offseason. That includes his “early departure from the Manning Passing Academy after allegedly oversleeping,” as well as getting kicked out of a University of Texas frat party. He was also suspended from Texas A&M for the first half of the season opener against Rice University after he was accused of accepting money in exchange for autographs. The NCAA ultimately did not find any proof that he had been taking payments, however.
