A source has told CBS Sports that Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel did not party on New Orleans’ Bourbon Street the night before he was asked to leave the Manning Passing Academy, and, in fact, he never left Thibodaux where the camp was held.

According to the CBS Sports story, the source was quoted as saying a story that Manziel went to New Orleans and hung out on Bourbon Street was “100 percent BS.” The source said he was with Manziel the night before he was kicked out of the camp and the two never left the facility.

The website Rumors and Rants posted a report this weekend that said Manziel had been partying on Bourbon Street in New Orleans — about an hour from the Manning camp — at around 4 a.m. Later that morning he missed a meeting and was dismissed from the camp.

According to the story, Dartmouth head coach Buddy Teevens asked
Manziel to leave after missing every staff meeting and being tardy when
no other quarterback counselor did so. Archie Manning agreed with
Teeven’s assessment and sent the quarterback home, the Rumors and Rants story said.

Manziel answered questions about why he did not make a meeting and was
asked to leave the Manning academy at the SEC Media days in Hoover last
week, saying, in part, “I made a mistake and didn’t wake up in time when
I should have, and
that’s pretty much the end of that. Missing the meeting wasn’t anything
due to the night prior.
It wasn’t anything involved in that.”
