[USA Today]

HOOVER, Ala. — Cameras in his face and accompanied by Texas A&M officials, Johnny Manziel made his anticipated arrival Wednesday at SEC Media Days.

First stop: ESPN.

Manziel admitted his new-found fame as the first freshman quarterback to win the Heisman Trophy was more difficult than he imagined.

Manziel admitted to missing a meeting Saturday and blamed it on oversleeping after his cellphone died.
