PLAYERS: Johnny Manziel
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel still has three years of eligibility left at Texas A&M. But a tweet he sent out early Sunday morning has some wondering how long he'll stay. Starting the tweet with an expletive, Manziel's said stuff "like tonight is why I can't wait to leave college station... whenever it may be." The comment went out to Manziel's more than 350,000 followers from his verified account before it was deleted almost immediately. He soon followed another tweet, saying: "Don't ever forget that I love A&M with all of my heart, but please please walk a day in my shoes." The quarterback led the Aggies to a win at eventual national champion Alabama last season, and became the first freshman to win the Heisman. A Texas A&M spokesman says that he does not expect a statement from Manziel or the university on the matter.
