    Collage Award Show - the Notre Dame Special

    The kid from Mississippi St (the one who was out of position and burned all night against us) won the Thorpe Award (nation's top DB) over Milliner. Please take a second and laugh with me at that nonsense.

    Let's all laugh at the fact Manti Te'o, a better pass interceptor than any corner in the nation, didn't win the Thorpe Award! What a crock!

    What is the nation going to say, if we absolutely embarrass Notre Dame?

    It does take some effort to get picked by a linebacker. Like Stevie Wonder at QB.

    I thought one of the biggest crimes is that Warmack wasn't up for any awards. Everyone in the media consistently says he is the best OL on our line and will be the highest drafted yet he wasn't up for a single award. He has been a first team all american on almost every list I've seen.

    Banks winning it to me is a bit of a shocker. It must have been a down year for CB if he is the winner. I know he made big plays when they were winning but I didn't hear much out of him once their schedule got real.

    There is no way that Teo is deserving of all these awards it just became laughable after a few. Clowney and Jones could have at least been thrown an award.

    ILB INTs, frankly, are almost always either a fluke - tip pass - or due to a good call from the sideline. It's not like he was running 20-30 yards down field and judging these balls in the air like a corner. He was sitting in a short zone and the QB didn't see him or their was a tip allowing him to dive for it or run up under the carom.

    This is literally the one amazing stat he has in his favor over recent past great college ILBs, yet he is getting treated like he's the combination of Brian Urlacher, Patrick Willis, and Aldon Smith all in one package.

    Warmack not getting recognized is the biggest of the snubs. Granted, it has a lot to do with the same aspect many are complaing about in regards to Teo. Barrett Jones is a much more "marketable" player in terms of story/human interest.

    I said Jones is more marketable than Warmack... I said nothing of Jones being more marketable than #WARMACKSBELLY

    Alright. I'll give you that. As long as we can agree nothing is more marketable than #WARMACKSBELLY.

    The talent this year is way down. You are telling me that Collin Klein, a player who has the ugliest release in CFB and won't even get DRAFTED AS A QUARTERBACK, is more deserving? No. He's not. Johnny Manziel will win the heisman, the Maxwell award typically goes to a different player.

    I think that Clowney will be better in the NFL than Te'o. But Manti has 7 interceptions, over 100 tackles, 2 fumble recoveries, 2 forced fumbles, not to mention at least THREE hurries/sacks that resulted in interceptions. 7 interceptions for an ILB is absurd. Couple that with the fact that his team is undefeated with the number ONE scoring defense in the nation, I think it is well deserving of the Maxwell and Bednarik.

    And a coach who brings a team to 12-0 in his third season after going 9-4 and 8-5 is deserving, especially when he is confined to recruiting kids who will keep the school number one in GSR.

    Saban won Coach of the Year in 2008 for an undefeated regular season, one year after going 7-6. Was that groupthink idiocy?
