HOOVER, Ala. – Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has admittedly thrown himself into the fire of national criticism for his off-the-field actions in the past, and Wednesday at SEC media days he got to tell his side of the story in his first public comments since his much-talked-about early departure this past weekend from the Manning Passing Academy.
“It’s been a busy summer for me,” said Manziel. “I probably bit off more than I can chew in July, been traveling, been going a lot of places. I just overslept. I made a mistake and didn’t wake up in time when I should have.”That’s pretty much the end of that.”"I’m still going to live my life to the fullest,” Manziel said. “There’s a lot of rumors out there, a lot of talk,” Manziel said. “I’ve been very eager to get a chance to share my side of the story. I missed a meeting. It wasn’t anything due to the night prior. … It was just simply my phone died, I overslept, I woke up the next morning whenever I did, went and talked to them and it was kind of a mutual decision to get home and get some time to relax.”
Hmm where have I heard that excuse before? The old “I wasn’t drinking….my phone died….I just overslept excuse”. I mean minus the Heisman Trophy and actually being important Manziel and Feitleberg are like the same people.
