Johnny Manziel has been under intense scrutiny ever since becoming the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy last year.
Every word, tweet, movement has been discussed, analyzed and, more often than not, criticized, sometimes justifiably.
Remind you of a certain pop star of around the same age that also often seems to be doing the wrong thing in the eyes of the media?
"I guess I feel like Justin Bieber or something," Manziel said in an appearance on ESPN at SEC media day. "I never thought it would really be that way."
In that interview as well as a news conference in front of hundreds of reporters, the Texas A&M quarterback got the chance to tell his side of some of the off-season stories surrounding him, including why he left the Manning family football camp early last weekend.
