Maziel answered every question thrown his way during a 30-minute Q&A at SEC Media Day yesterday, some of which were even about football.

He said he largely enjoys the spotlight that comes with winning the Heisman Trophy last year, even if it includes scandalous headlines at times.

The 20-year-old sophomore and Texas A&M quarterback's most recent misstep came last weekend when he attended the Manning Passing Academy.

Jack Hoffman wasn't just among the winners at the 2013 ESPY Awards. He was the one whose "Moment" was named the very best of the sports year.

You may not have heard of Jack, but that's part of what makes it so special.

A seven-year-old cancer patient, he got the opportunity of a lifetime when the Nebraska football team put him in for a play during its spring game.

What happened, as you can see below, left not a dry eye in the house:

Like fellow ESPY winner Robin Roberts, Hoffman was dealt a tough hand, but through sports, he was able to find some unforgettable, uplifitng moments.

Keep it up, Jack ...

Robin Roberts received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2013 ESPYs last night, and it's hard to think of anyone more deserving of the honor.

Watch her emotional speech after winning the honor below:

Two decades ago, Jim Valvano made his legendary acceptance speech after winning it, setting the stage for the best part of the ESPY Awards.

Fittingly, the late college basketball coach's great efforts raising cancer awareness helped impact so many lives, including this year's recipient, Roberts.

Robin, who survived breast cancer in 2008 and MDS (a rare blood and bone marrow disease) recently, is courageous, as well as talented and inspiring.

Here's hoping she continues to be for many years to come.

If you've ever thought "I'm going to do something stupid if Twitter tells me to", let this be a cautionary tale. Or, you know, don't even consider basing a decision on thousands of faceless strangers in the first place.

This man is named Dylan McCue-Masone. Dylan tweeted during last night's All-Star Game that he would run out onto the field if he got 1,000 retweets.

Now, I'm a fan of twitter, and I know how exciting it can be when someone RT's you (well I've heard it's exciting) but surely it wouldn't cause someone to do something on the edge of legality, right?

New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey recently filmed New Yorkers answering questions about Matt Harvey ... unaware they were talking to Matt Harvey.

In a skit for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Harvey conducted man-on-the-street interviews, asking people for their thoughts on the second-year pro.

It went exactly as you think, by virtue of the fact that we're sharing it, and proves that even die-hard NYC sports fans aren't as savvy as they think.

Then again, it's the Mets. Who even knows what their record is*?

The highlight has to be the guy blissfully ignorant of who he's talking to ... while actually wearing a Matt Harvey jersey and saying Harvey is his favorite player.

* - 41-50, 11 games out of first place. No one can blame Harvey, though. The 24-year-old is 7-2 with a 2.35 ERA and just made his first All-Star team.

Photos of tennis star Agnieszka Radwanska nude in ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue are reportedly not going over too well in her native Poland.

Agnieszka Radwanska Nude

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Catholic group Youth Crusade is distancing itself from Radwanska on account of her “immoral behavior.”

The ESPN Body Issue features naked but not explicit photos of athletes, including the world's #4-ranked tennis player next to a pool of tennis balls.

Youth Crusade, in heavily Catholic Poland, runs a campaign called “I am not ashamed of Jesus,” which Radwanska participated in two years ago.

Move over, McKayla Maroney.

In a hilarious new GIF making the viral rounds, Robinson Cano is the one unimpressed by the feat of his fellow athlete, as he stands alongside Eduardo Nunez with his arms folded while the shortstop snags a pop up during last week's win over the Royals.

It's clear Cano was a bit perturbed that Nunez called him off, considering the ball fell on the second base side of the infield.

But, hey, at least the Yankees actually made this out. A trio of embarrassing errors contributed to the team's 10-4 demise yesterday, as New York heads into the All-Star break on a two-game losing streak.

Reality star Anna Benson is in jail in Marietta, Ga., for allegedly breaking into her estranged husband’s home and threatening him with a gun.

It turns out this is not the ex-stripper’s first run-in with the law.

In 1996, Anna Benson (then Anna Warren) lived in a rundown Tennessee apartment that was adorned with satanic graffiti and anti-police messages.

At 19, Anna was reportedly the subject of a sweeping manhunt after an 18-year-old man named Michael Evans was murdered in that apartment.
