Teo's numbers aren't gaudy so i don't see why he's even being promoted as a candidate. Suh had gaudy number. Even the honey badger had gaudy numbers. Heck, derrick thomas back in the day had playstation numbers. Teo is a great player but not a heisman year.
There is a lot more to football than numbers it's not baseball.
Teo isn't even the best defensive player, it's Clowney.

I see why he's there although the homer in me feels Jarvis has been just as good and is every bit the "leader" without the ND hype. That said MT is a badass and I won't bitch if he winsi
He might not win....but deal with it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DQMs1E4aYc&feature=youtube_gdata_player

"Strap on" is "No parts" spelled backwards...coincidence--- I think not!
The heisman isn't an mvp award. Even then, manziel is more valuable to his team.
It isn't for the best draft pick, but that still isn't teo.
I don't see why he's even mentioned in the discussion.
If it was about the numbers geno smith would be the best qb in the country
But Teo has a sad story!
Look at manziel stats against good teams was terrible in games against good teams except for alabama game. So just cuz he had one good game he's the heisman winner?
Johnny has more forced fumbles than manti teo.
How pathetic is that?
Honestly I didn't watch any ND game this season so I can't say much to how his season went but I didn't even notice him against SC until our QB thought he was an open receiver.
Not sure he did anything of note last season against us either, I just assumed he had finally put it all together this season from all the Heisman hype.
Maybe bc he has better stats than Cam Newton and Tebow and he flashed against the number 1 defense in the nation.
He actually leads the sec in rushing
Teo has 7 interceptions.... As a linebacker
Yea that's a good lie get ur facts straight he has 5 total Tds and 3 interceptions against 3 ranked teams LOL

U know ur wrong when u hav to revert to talking about my team. Oh and by the way 12-0
actually, his numbers weren't that bad against Florida. If you want just yards, he even had ver 300 total yards by himself against LSU as well. The only bad game he really had was LSU because of the TOs but he has not been stopped by anyone. He set the total yard in a season record in 2 less games than Cam Newton...think about that.
And if ur gonna post u should post correct stats 5 totals Tds 3 int what a joke he sucks
Manzel will never play a down in the NFL - too small. I like his story and he is exiting to watch - but one year does not make a heiseman either - voters look at a body of work. A flash in the pan is not Heisman material. A&M loses to Bama - and Manzel is not going to NYC either - you cannot say ESECPN hyped Teo and slow played Manzel - A&M beats Bama - Manzel moves from nobody to top of the list due to ESPN hype.
I'm a team guy and think individual awards are pointless in a team sport anyway. The Heisman is a popularity contest anyway.
I have said for years they should dump the Heisman because it has nothing to do with integrity and being well rounded as the rules state - past winners have been arrested and part of recruiting violation allegations prior to winning.
Manzel is 1-2 vs "then top 25 teams" when A&M played them. Is the loss on Manzel or the team? I say the team, but some will unfairly hold that against Manzel in voting.
My point is that it is just a popularity contest.
I agree. the heisman is the dumbest award in sports in sports. Purely hype and very little substance.
I disagree with your assessment about Manziel's pro potential. He is around 6' and 200 lbs(actually listed at 6' 1" but I think that generous) witch puts him in the same area size as Drew Brees, Mike Vick, and Russell Wilson. Heck, he probably isn't that much shorter than guys like Romo or Rodgers to be honest.
I saw the kid in person at Bama and he is legit. Kid has a very good arm also. I think people assume he can't play in the league because of his style of play and use his size as justification but people need to realize the kid is a great athlete but can also make the throws necessary.
He has great numbers - but the stupid award is not about stats
This thread just shows how delusional ND fans are.
FACT: If manti teo played on UGA or Bama he wouldn't be in new york. You're lucky the notre dame brand is carrying him.
His mediocre stats are being covered up by his sad story and his ''emotional" leadership.
Yeah - I'll take back what I said - he does have a couple more years to develop
This thread is unnecessary - OP saying Teo does not deserve to be in NY is his opinion - while I think he is wrong - he is entitled to it
Y do u keep trying to count Arkansas as a ranked opponent they were not ranked when u played them either u literally know nothing about college football
