Most often we never had to take those kinds of angles. Denard never got going, Leveon isn't that fast, and neither is Stefan Taylor.
The Pacific Islanders are very prideful people so I can understand how their family is upset by that front page depiction.
But Manti was so showered with all those awards, the Heisman candidacy, the publicity - you know with that UGLY defeat (and I mean UGLY! ) he's going to fall farther than any other ND player, don't you think?
So in certain respects 'it goes with the territory' - 'what doesn't kill him makes him stronger' - choose your cliche'.
I have not read the article so it's hard to comment any further.
He'll have a chance to redeem his pride at the next level.
It appeared to me that he played slow due to being confused half the night. Though our offense may "appear" simple and boring. It is more complex than a lot of people think. I think he was confused and on a football field when you don't know what you're doing or where to be you play slow. I also don't think he was ready for the physical play of our entire team. You could tell on several plays that he wasn't used to the RB's giving him that much resistance. Lacy was slinging Notre Dame players off of him while still churning his legs forward.

Just to clarify, I think T'eo is a great player who had a bad game. It happens to everyone.

Hey now...Manti Te’o is every bit as good as the Honey Badger.
Did anybody think that Te'o looked small. There were several times he would stand next to Lacy or Yeldon and I thought there is no way he is 255 or whatever they list him at.
Teo is the face of their team, the picture somes up what happened in the game pretty well. The guy got a second place finish in the Heisman because of media love, he needs to learn to deal with the criticism if he is going to accept the media adulation.
Also did anyone else think that Te'o looked like swampthing at the Heisman?
As far as his Dad's rant I really think that Dad's should just stay out of this type of situation. Seems that nothing good ever comes out of it. I refer to situations with Craig James and the like.
Manti is a big boy now. He probably didn't think anything about this. Now, of course, his Dad is going to bring all kind of publicity to the photo of him laying on the ground being "Bowled Over". He should have just kept his mouth shut in my opinion.
