HOOVER, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron is steering clear of the Johnny Manziel questions.

McCarron fielded plenty of them Thursday at Southeastern Conference media day, where his Texas A&M counterpart faced the spotlight a day earlier.

McCarron and Manziel were roommates at the Manning Passing Academy, where Manziel left early and blamed missing activities on oversleeping.

Asked if he bought that explanation, McCarron said: "I can't answer on Johnny Manziel's part. My name's AJ."

McCarron says he won't "speak on another man's business."

Aside from the Manziel questions, McCarron said he wants to handle himself in a way that makes him a good role model for kids. He says the two didn't discuss life in the fishbowl as high-profile SEC quarterbacks.
