Manti Te'o must be one very, very, very good (awesome) football player. With all the awards that he won tonight on ESPN as well as the Lombardi Trophy (Award), wow! He may have won awards that I have not even heard about. He seems to be a very humble person as well. He seems to one driven individual. Our hands are going to be full trying to deal with him. After all the awards he won tonight, I'm wondering if Johnny Football even has a chance to win the Heisman. Prior to watching the awards program tonight, I felt it was a slam dunk for Johnny Football winning the Heisman. Now, I'm not so sure. Does the Notre Dame mystique have something to do with that? Maybe. Are voters all across the country voting for Te'o?
He looks big, but his father is even bigger. I'll bet his dad could have played nose guard, maybe even left tackle to handle the blind side, for any university.
Coach Kelly has been undefeated at three universities. Wow!
Maybe Alabama should just call in sick and not show up in Miami. Let's just send Oklahoma State since they missed out last year.
I'm sure Te'o is very deserving. I'm also sure we're going to have a tough time against him on January 7. Are we going to be able to block him and keep him off A. J. McCarron? A. J., don't throw the ball within 20 yards of that Irish Hawaiian.
I'm also concerned about that BIG tight end for N. D. He's a big dude.
Well, I guess I'm also concerned about their front seven on defense as well as their QB's especially the elusive freshman QB, their running backs, as well as their DB's.
Coach Saban has complimented all areas except their DB's in interviews. Is there a reason or do the other areas stand out so much.
One final thing. How was A. J. McCarron not deserving of any of the national awards? He's 24-2 in 2 years and won one BCSNC as the starting QB as well as headed to another one against ND. Is this an injustice? I personally think it is. If Barkley had accomplished that at USCw, everyone would think he was the player of the year, the Heisman winner, etc. Has the Johnny Unitas award been awarded yet? Does A. J. have a chance?
Back to the above accolades, do we even have a chance at defeating the Fighting Irish. I am one Irish descendant that does NOT like the Fighting Irish! Also, are we even going to be able to score a TD against them. I do think we need to score several times from outside the red zone to have a chance.
