Johnny Manziel tweet shows unhappiness in College Station

It can’t be easy to go back to college after becoming the first freshman to be awarded the Heisman Trophy, but Johnny Manziel isn’t making it any easier on himself.

The Texas A&M quarterback, who cryptically tweeted over the weekend that “[expletive] like tonight is a reason why I can’t wait to leave College Station … whenever it may be,” quickly realized he shouldn’t have pressed “send.”

Manziel, who is only 20, later deleted the tweet and fired off a new one:

Manziel now how a greater appreciation for just how closely his utterances are followed, an A&M coach told CBS Sports. Which is a good thing, since he must play another year in College Station before he can see if his skills convert to the NFL. He’s done a lot of things right at A&M and plenty wrong, as the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Mark Bradley notes:

Let’s see: Heisman winner, idol of millions, friend of James Harden – are those shoes really so uncomfortable? Just by saying that, I realize I’m stamping myself as a HATER, but let’s be clear. I don’t hate Johnny Manziel. I just hate that he seems determined to take a great story and turn it into a cautionary tale.
