COLUMN: HOOVER, Ala. — Give Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel credit. He took his early departure from the annual Manning Passing Camp in stride at SEC Media Days on Wednesday morning. Manziel, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, was literally swarmed by media who were more interested in why he was asked to leave by the camp’s leader, former Ole Miss standout Archie Manning, last week than how he avoids a blitzer.
