Former NFL running back and Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams knows a bit about being under the microscope when it comes to being a superstar in college football.  Something Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has been experiencing and struggling with as of late.

In an interview with, Williams in less than twenty seconds gave advice to Manziel and then suggested the media’s fault of investigating Manziel's off-field issues.

"You know once you win the Heisman Trophy, there's going to be more attention on you," Williams said. "You are probably not going to be able to get away with all the stuff you got away with before. ... To the media I would say, if the media did their research on who this kid was, nobody would be surprised."

Williams of course known for his multiple failed drug tests in the NFL. Williams is now the running backs coach at University of the Incarnate Word.
