Via Rumors And Rants:

Johnny Manziel raised some eyebrows recently when he tweeted that he couldn’t wait to get out of College Station. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner apparently isn’t happy at Texas A&M and a new report has reinforced that.

According to The Dallas Morning NewsManziel nearly transferred from Texas A&M before the 2012 season. He was arrested on June 29, 2012, for misdemeanor fighting, failure to identify and possession of fake IDs. He was suspended for the 2012 season as a result, but that suspension was later overturned on appeal.

In the aftermath he did express regret about the incident, but before the suspension was reversed, Manziel reportedly looked into transferring.

Manziel redshirted the 2011 season as a freshman, and it was generally assumed he would back up Jameill Showers in 2012, but “Johnny Football” won the starting job in August. The 20-year-old quarterback had a record-breaking season on his way to becoming the first freshman in college football history to win the Heisman Trophy.

In 2012 Manziel set the FBS freshman single-season records for rushing yards by a quarterback (1,410) and total offense (5,116), and also became the first freshman (and fifth player ever) to total 3,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a season. He also set the SEC record for total offense in a season.

Last Saturday Manziel posted the following on Twitter:

“Bullsh*t like tonight is why I can’t wait to leave college station… whenever it may be.”

He has since deleted that tweet, but added:

“Don’t ever forget that I love A&M with all of my heart, but please please walk a day in my shoes.”

  • Oh waaaa!! Walk a mile in your shoes!?! Pretty sure it was his family that trademarked "Johnny Football".
  • He never considered transferring because he won his appeal. It is just something that stupid lady at DMN threw out there as if it was actually the case. Don't let someone else be your source, go to the source yourself and get the truth, don't be such a lazy ass.
  • A punk. A & M does not deserve to be represented in this immature, disrepectful manner. He reminds me of Justin Bieber with all his escapades.
  • this kid is exactly that, give him a break........it always amazes me how much crap people talk about these kids, they do the best they know how, and sometimes they screw up, but this kid has talent and heart, anyone knocking him is either a moron, or probably either an sec school (other than aTm) fan, or especially an Alabama fan......I cant wait to see what this kid does in his career, he may struggle this year, but I expect great things from him and evidently so so a lot of others who seem to want him to fail...........get a life!
  • Johnny is obviously very talented on the football field, but is incredibly immature, arrogant and egotistical, even for a twenty year old. Winning the Heisman was the fuel that propelled everything out of proportion.
  • Johnny Football-in-mouth is only a fractured ankle away from being an irrelevant footnote to the 2013 season. No matter his talent level, his "class-level" is abysmal. STFU, Johnny Boy.
  • So why didn't this come out before now. The press crucifixed Ta'o for what happened to him. This jerk doesn't deserve the Heisman.
  • young kid, but looks almost 40, and for some reason kinda acts like justin timberlake. :\
  • when you're hot, you know it. i was 20 years old to. all of the adrelian flowing in your veins hard to control.women want a piece of you. yea try being in his shoes at 20 years old and saying its easy to hold back. news media people on your ass, its all coming at you so fast you do'nt have time to sit back and think. ask any retired pro he will tell you. its been fun. thank you. p.s. be kind to this talented young man, they don't come around that often.
  • Very good college player who is very immature. He thinks he's better than his press clippings, he needs to STFU.
  • If there is a more self-serving, self promoting, attention seeking glory hound in college football than Manziel I sure can't think of who it might be. This guy is all hung-up on himself. Yes, he had an excellent season on the football field but one year doesn't make him a bona-fide super star. Let's see how he does this year in the SEC; if he can even finish the season before some LBer rips him a new one because of his mouth. He's so arrogant he thinks he did it all by himself...what a tool! He could certainly use some maturity and a bit of humbleness. Better keep your head on a swivel this year Johnny Boy!
  • johnny football is unique in his own way. you have to remember he is 20 years old, still learning . give the guy credit. how many win a heisman trophy at 19 years old or 20. loosen up people you must be very jealous.he just said, try waking in my shoes do you know what he is saying? pressure all around me. can;t say, do, any thing without being critical.he wants to be normal go party and let off some steam , but he can't because he is johnny football. p.s try walking in my shoes.thank you.
  • Lots of talent, but apparently very immature, reckless and self-absorbed. Doesn't this guy have coaches, teammates, handlers or at least parents who can provide some type of guidance? Where's the twelfth man when you need him????? ;)
  • Enjoy it while you can: at 6ft.1in. tall your college playing days are as good as it will get. I do not care how good you think you are, but at 6 ft. 1in. you will not be an NFL quarterback.
  • A 6 foot 1 QB that draws 85,000 fans a game /Heisman winner will certainly be on a NFL roster... He has not shown the class of a Russell Wilson but their were many naysayers that he would never be a NFL QB as well - when you have the skills young Johnny has many GM's will quickly draft him - what he does with that shot will depend on his maturation as a leader off the field as well as on it. I just know for this Oregon Duck I watched every game I could of Mr Manziel -just like I watched every game of Colin Kapernick when he starred in college. Sports is about hard work but its also about a good story and entertainment. Gig em Johnny, shut Twitter/ Facebook/Instagram down and let your magic on the field do your talking.
  • Johnny is a good player, but...I was very impressed with the A&M receivers last year. They seemed to be able to come down with the ball when the ball was thrown in their area even if they were covered. I really became a fan of the Swoops kid, #25. It reminded me of Wurffel's senior year at Florida. He enjoyed some receivers that could do the same thing. Swoops has left for the NFL. Things may be different this year Johnny Football.
  • Oh, boy another Big Ego gone awry. Have him call Joe Namath and leave Tex Am. He'll get his goesaround down the road.
    Who care if your skill are good if your soul is so ego ridden?
  • Johnny boy is a good player in his own way and yes he is only 20 but this all started(the arrest-fake ID and stuff)before the start of last season-so no pressure on yet! he is a punk who thinks he deserves a lot. grow up cause you are last years news and there is a new "Johnny Football" coming. ok maybe not sincce that name is "taken"!
