Johnny Manziel made a name for himself in college for his Heisman Trophy play and his partying ways.  The first-round bust said he used to think the harder he partied the better he played.

He told an amazing story about going out on Halloween and needing to be scooped out of bed the next day to make it to walk through.

"It was Halloween and I went out.  One of my boys had a Scooby-Doo costume and I wore this thing full-blown to the bars.  All night, I took pictures with girls.  I may or may not have pulled the old 'my alarm clock didn’t work' the next day.  Kliff Kingsbury, being the OG he is, already knows what it is.  He’s too hip to the game to not know I’m fucking big-dogging it around town the night before.  He had a guy who was our offensive assistant at the time.  He would come to my house and literally scoop me out of bed and throw me over his shoulder and in the front of his truck to drive me to the facility.  I went out to walk through like nothing happened.  I remember this one day I’m running outside and puking my ass off and coming back right before the first snap of offensive four plays.  It’s crazy that I had this mindset that I played better the harder I partied."

Manziel might have been an NFL bust but he was a legend in college!
