Alabama coach Nick Saban normally creates the most notable buzz at media days, but that could change this year with Manziel's appearance. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner made headlines throughout the offseason, whether it was with his social media accounts, celebrities he hung out with or destinations he traveled to. Most recently, he made an early exit from the Manning Passing Academy. Expect the questions to be plentiful and wide-ranging when Manziel meets with the media.
