    I didn't say I had a problem with it. I'm just saying that if Mr. Te'o thought by him freely giving out photo's and interviews to "help" the paper cover his son. That there was some sort of "bond" or "trust" created he was grossly mistaken.

    Manti Te'o seems to be a fine young man, and he is a very solid football player. However, the one and only reason that he was second in the Heisman voting is that he plays for Notre Dame. Newspapers report the news whether it is good or bad. If Mr. Te'o loved the coverage during the good times, he should be able to handle the coverage in the bad times. However, I can understand his point that the paper could have chosen the high road and just reported the facts from the game without showing Manti on his back. I learned long ago not to expect the high road from many people, especially journalists trying to sell papers.

    My post was tongue in cheek ,but to be honest, te'o was never technically ran over. Why run over a defender when you could just run by him.

    Haha, I think what shocked many people is that Te'o wasn't even in position to be run over. He was grasping at air all night. I'm sure that he would like a do over for that game because he seems to have the type of character that wouldn't quit.

    Didn't someone already post this? Oh, never mind.................

    This is exactly what I was going to post. Right or wrong, Te'o became the face of ND football this year with all the accolades he received. Te'o had a horrible game, but so did the rest of ND's defense. The DB's have yet to cover Cooper, and our OL manhandled the rest of ND's vaunted front 7 - not just Te'o. Unfortunately for him, he's taking the brunt of the criticism for it. I know his Dad is emotional about it, but when a player achieves that level of visibility, his accomplishments AND failures become front page news. That's just the reality of it. His Dad had no problem with the newspaper when the stories were positive.

    If Te'o were standing over Eddie Lacy after trucking him and ND had won the game, Mr. Te'o would most likely have it framed hanging on his wall...

    While I think Te'o is a good LB he is certainly not an elite LB. Looking at the list of awards he received many were as a result of his back story and the fact ND were playing a mostly weak schedule.

    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.

    I totally agree. This paper is going to get all kinds of notoriety because of the dads comments. Better to let sleeping dogs lie.
