College football alert text sent out by ESPN.
This past weekend, Johnny Manziel was supposed to participate in the annual Manning Passing Academy for college quarterbacks. Well, Manziel did participate, just not for very long. It was first reported that the Heisman winner was kicked out of the event by Archie Manning himself after Manziel showed up hung over, but ESPN later reported that Johnny’s departure was mutually agreed upon after he was feeling ill.
Today, according to ESPN’s Joe Schad, Manziel apologized to the Texas A&M staff for the incident. Furthermore, Johnny was advised to “come clean” as to why he left the Manning Passing Academy.

The idea of “coming clean” seems to indicate that Manziel was up to no good — perhaps the reports of him partying too hard are indeed true. Calling his “behavior” into question insinuates some type of wrongdoing on Johnny’s part, at the very least.
I’m not sure that coming clean is the greatest idea for Manziel, however — after all, he is still underage, so if he missed the Academy for anything alcohol-related, he should probably keep that under wraps. We’ll keep you updated if Johnny does in fact decide to talk about the incident, perhaps during SEC Media Days, which begin tomorrow.
