Johnny Manziel is always the center of attention, but especially here on Day 2 of SEC Media Days. He opened the day by appearing on Sportscenter, where he explained that he was not hung over at the Manning Passing Academy — he simply overslept because his phone died and he was tired from extensive offseason travel. In his later interview, Johnny also mentioned that he has shut it down on Twitter, something his coach also noted. However, he did not say that he was banned, but rather that he “hasn’t had anything interesting to say” lately. He then went on to explain that Tim Tebow reached out to him this past weekend following the Manning Passing Academy. Manziel said he really respects Tebow, who is “an SEC legend.” Manziel said he got a voicemail from Tim Tebow, but hasn’t spoken to him. “Really would like to get a chance to.” — Sentinel Gators beat (@osgators) July 17, 2013 Tim Tebow is just a regular hero –it’s not the first time that he has tried to keep other college players under control. However, it is a bit surprising that he would reach out to Manziel, who was critical of Tebow on ESPN’s First Take last month. But that’s just the type of forgiving person Tebow is. We can only hope that Tebow can put Manziel back on the straight and narrow — he’s certainly the role model that most athletes should look up to.
