Johnny Manziel overslept at The 2013 Manning Passing Academy

Johnny Manziel has admittedly thrown himself into the fire of national criticism for his off-the-field actions in the past, and Wednesday at SEC media days he got to tell his side of the story in his first public comments since his much-talked-about early departure this past weekend from the 2013 Manning Passing Academy.

Because of dehydration, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel caught a lot of media heat for exiting the 2013 Manning Passing Academy early.

Johnny Manziel said oversleeping and missing a meeting was the cause of his dismissal from the 2013 Manning Passing Academy.

"I made a mistake and didn't wake up in time when I should have, and that's pretty much the end of that," Manziel said. "It was just simply my phone died. I overslept."

Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziell, who spoke further with other media at the Wynfrey Hotel as part of the SEC's unofficial annual preseason-kickoff event, was reported by some websites to have been sent home by Archie Manning from the passing camp for "partying." But camp officials were adamant that those reports were inaccurate when speaking later to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
He was disappointed to leave the camp early and insisted his departure had nothing to do with alcohol or the previous night.

Johnny Manziel said he spoke to his coach, Kevin Sumlin, recently, apologizing for the negative light he put on his program.

Johnny Manziel, who is the centerpiece of the Aggies program this season under Sumlin, is a front-runner to claim the Heisman Trophy again this season. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound speedster from Kerrville, Texas, threw for 3,706 yards and rushed for 1,410 more, averaging 7.0 yards on the ground and 12.6 yards per completion last season.

Do you believe him?
