Johnny Manziel Texted Devin Gardner After Akron Game, Told Him “Keep Your Head Up”

Last weekend was a scary one for Michigan, as the Wolverines had to really hold on to avoid a major upset by the Akron Zips. After Devin Gardner’s mediocre performance, the star quarterback received a pretty interesting text, that told him to keep his head up — from Johnny Manziel.

It’s interesting that Manziel took the time to text Gardner, especially considering he had to keep his own head up after the loss to Alabama — I guess misery loves company. Either way, it’s a classy move by Manziel, who does a lot of things the right way, despite getting a ton of attention for his mistakes.
