The encore to Johnny Football's Heisman Trophy-winning freshman season is nearing an end.
Heisman Trophy history suggests it will never get better for Johnny Manziel than it did this season. In the 78-year history of the Heisman, only one player has one more than one: Ohio State's Archie Griffin in 1974 and '75.

Alabama's Trent Richardson wasn't a starter when he arrived on the scene.
Ohio State University President E. Gordon Gee told the institution's largest graduating class that a scandal in its celebrated football program is "but a temporary condition."
Two-time Heisman Trophy winner Archie Griffin wants to reassure Ohio State fans that things will get better.
Ohio State players facing five-game suspensions next season would not have traveled with the team to the Sugar Bowl if they had not pledged to return in 2011, head coach Jim Tressel said on Thursday.
The Big Ten's new football trophy names:
Former Ohio State kicker Aaron Pettrey was working part time at a shop that sells Buckeyes gear in Columbus, stocking merchandise and ringing up sales while waiting for some team to give him a chance.
Mark Ingram's run for a second Heisman Trophy has been put on hold, and possibly even derailed, before the Alabama tailback had a chance to gain a single yard.
Mark Ingram was the third consecutive sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. Hence, he becomes the third consecutive player who returns with a chance to match Ohio State's Archie Griffin, the only two-time winner of the coveted bronze statue.
Archie Griffin knows that one day he won't be the only multiple Heisman winner.
"Yep. It has been tough. But Ohio State is more than football," Griffin said this week after Jim Tressel was forced to resign as head coach in the midst of a widespread NCAA inquiry. "It's a great university, a lot of great things happening at the university. We will bounce back, no question about it."
"Ohio State has a wonderful tradition, a great program," he said. "It's been proven out over the years. And we'll continue to have that type of program. We'll continue to try and put the best players on the field as well as the coaches. So that's certainly going to be what the powers that be will look to do."
