Te'o is a top 3-4 ILB, but far from a heisman winner.
When ND beat Oklahoma, the media figured ND would become relevent to the BCSCG because of their easy schedule the rest of the year.
In the national media's eyes, If ND is relevent, they MUST have a heisman candidate whether warranted or not. It's just the way it is.
During the BCSCG we will hear how somebody else from ND should be in the heisman race for next year.
Alabama loves to embarrass Heisman winners on a national stage. Just sayin'.
The best thing to ever come out of Tennessee...I-65 heading south.
and consider Mosley's playing time compared to his.
Hey Daddy why doesn't Auburn have a number beside their name? 5 year old son during the iron bowl.
I just want to see all of our RB's plowing into him and drop him like a dirty pair of socks as they run on by. All the way to our 5th string guy.
Every year has to be considered independently. This year has produced a few exciting players, but they all play for teams with one or more loss. That leaves someone line Te'o. Right place, right time. Heisman is about that more than talent - always has been.
71 total tackles
44 solo tackles
27 assisted tackles
2 passes broken up
Add to this list the following:
19.5 tackles for loss
17 QB hurries
6 forced fumbles
Te'O by comparison, has the following lines:
5.5 tackles for loss
4 QB hurries
0 forced fumbles
No doubt they play two totally different LB roles on their team... but when you consider who they've played, how many games they've accumulated the stats (Jones - 10, Ta'O - 12), and the total impact on the games, I don't know how you can't invite Jones to NYC if Ta'O goes.
