    Well if nothing else he would provide the broadcast some really great sideline shots where he is displaying this or that emotion in reponse to something somewhere. Sort of like NBC did all season long.

    Simply one of the best marketing campaigns I've ever witnessed. Fascinating really.
    Ask me about my vow of silence.

    They obviously saw something in the BCS Game that the rest of the world missed.
    Teams can pay outrageous amounts for players that don't pan out.
    (Think NY Jets buying Tebow...)

    I do expect that Te'o will pan out for some team, but I'd think it would be more likely he go in the Second Round.

    I'm not drinking the 'Green KoolAid'... I think it's 'Overrated'.

    Ah, come on. Manti Te'o had a great run at Notre Dame. With all the heart break this young man had give him a break. The paper should have run something a little more favorable ATLEAST. Excuse me for being a softie. RTR
