Johnny Manziel's offseason has taken more twists and turns than a road course. So, why should it be any surprise that on Saturday another bombshell dropped. The website Rumors and Rants busted the story last week that the Heisman Trophy winner from Texas A&M was asked to leave the Manning Passing Academy early. CLICK HERE: Greg Couch says Manziel's playing the Internet Now, the site is offering information that contradicts the line of events Manziel described at SEC Media Days earlier this week. Rumors and Rants says a source claims Manziel was not in his room, where he said he overslept and missed a meeting before being "sent" home from the academy. The site alleges Manziel was not even in the room Friday night, instead an hour away on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Rumors and Rants says Archie Manning had already been told that Manziel was out until at least 4 a.m. Saturday. According to the story, Manning gave the quarterback a chance to fess up, but Manziel lied to Manning, and was then asked to go leave the camp. The site reports the actual force between the forced exit was Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens, not Manning. The former Tulane coach reportedly made the assigment schedule for all quarterbacks at the camp and was done with Manziel, who a source told the website was the only person at the academy to fail to live up to his obligations. Teevens is said to be the person who told Manziel it was time to leave.
