That's fine, but Bama's O-Line didn't force Te'o into those missed tackles and they didn't force him to be out of position. He isn't a bad player, but he is WAY overhyped (not just a "hair").
Te'o honestly wasn't even the best LB in the mid-west, it's borderline criminal that the guy was in New York for the Heisman.
Seeing Te'o play against Michigan for the past couple years has given me a good look at him. He made some plays this year, but for the most part just seemed to make a lot of tackles downfield. He's a solid LB, but not even close to the hype he was getting.
Mauti, Shazier, Jake Ryan all made more flash plays (not including lucky INT's) than Te'o in the games I saw.
I never understood the hype surrounding Te'o this year. Having our team play against him every season for the last four years, there was never a game he really dominated. Don't get me wrong he's a good linebacker, definitely top 10. But I agree with those that question that he's #1.
I think this was the defining moment of his career for me. When 5'7 Curtis McNeal was able to repeatedly break through his tackles in the 2011 game.
Here's one for those that think he's elite in pass coverage.

Clowney > Jones > Te'o
its very very clear that Teo simply got exposed for what he is....an above average linebacker....not worthy of a heisman or even close to that
Clowney > Jesus > Tim Tebow
But according to that fraud Skip Bayless Teo was the next Ray Lewis. Overrated
