Manziel: I Overslept at Manning Academy
After days of speculation and rumors about why Texas A&M QB and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel left early from the Manning Passing Academy last Saturday, Manziel spoke live on ESPN during SEC Media Days on Wednesday to say he overslept but was not hung over and the decision to leave the camp was mutual between him and the Mannings.
He did not respond as to whether or not he consumed alcohol on Friday night:
Overall, Manziel did a good job of handling himself but there remains one burning question: Why didn’t his roommate, Alabama QB AJ McCarron, wake him up if Manziel overslept? Manziel said he didn’t know but it was his fault, “120%”:
Unfortunately, now McCarron will be grilled about the situation on Thursday. As Cecil Hurt of The Tuscaloosa News put it:
Over/under on number of times AJ McCarron is asked tomorrow why he didn’t wake Manziel up: 377.

Sadly, this whole drama isn’t over yet.
