Johnny Manziel created another Twitter controversy this week when he said that he couldn’t wait to leave Texas Station.
Manziel wrote on Twitter: “Bulls— like tonight is a reason why I can’t wait to leave college station…whenever it may be.”
The Tweet was deleted but not before it made its way into the ongoing conversation about the Sophomore quarterback’s future. Manziel, who won the Heisman last season, tried to make up for the Tweet by reassuring his fans that he loves playing football in Texas.
Manziel wrote: Don’t ever forget that I love A&M with all of my heart, but please please walk a day in my shoes.”
It’s unclear what caused Manziel to publicly state that he wanted to leave Texas A&M and it doesn’t seem like Johnny Football has any desire to follow through on his frustrations. Coach Kevin Sumlin said last week that Manziel has been under a lot of pressure since winning the Heisman last December since he is now a nationally known public figure.
Sumlin said: When you are a nationally recognized person, whether you’re young or a freshman or an older guy, there are some things that come with that. Like I said before, (Manziel) is still himself, and he has made some mistakes and he knows that. That’s part of growing up. I think, like I’ve said before, we’ve got a support process that’s in place for him and his family and I know that ever since summer school started he has been back hard at work and he’s happy to be back with his teammates.”

Manziel stepped away from Twitter earlier this year because he didn’t want to be distracted by the social media site. That didn’t last too long, however, as Johnny Football has already returned to Twitter. Manziel has more than 350,000 followers and all of them are now aware that he “can’t wait to leave College Station.”
