Watching my young son be upset reminds me of myself when another QB with big numbers but no substance stole a Heisman from a deserving Domer.........
Heisman name changed to "best offensive player not to attend ND"
More like SEC offensive player of the year
Kid deserved it. Great stats and an electric playmaker. Good for him. Nothing wrong with manti finishing 2nd and playing in a national championship game. Great season
+1 I totally agree
A few posts I want to comment on.. But being in the extremely sober state that I currently am will probably inhibit me from doing so.
First to the OP. I showed your post to my Gf (who is by no means a ND or sports fan) and she teared up. +1 for helping me convert her to being an Irish fanatic.
2nd to the Larry fitz comment. The dude was by far and above the best player in FBS. But just like the award should've gone to Manti, it went to the best player on the best team in the regular season.
With that being said... The award is a joke. Yeah, if another Irish player wins it in the future I'll be obnoxious and let everyone know that I root for the best team with the best player, but this award has become an offensive popularity contest.
Like Sapp tweeted earlier about deleting tweets regarding the award, words cannot explain the amount of frustration occurring at the moment. Now, more than ever, should a college football fan realize that the sport has become a (for lack of a better word) tool for propaganda. ESPN determined this winner and without their coverage, "Johnny Football" would not be holding that trophy.
Btw, as I've explained to at least 5 individuals, he's not a freshman. Johnny's an academic sophomore.
"Btw, as I've explained to at least 5 individuals, he's not a freshman. Johnny's an academic sophomore"
Lou and Mr Hanratty have already commented similarly.
I think the SEC QB is TWENTY
how old is Te'o ?.
SEC class designations are a joke.
All rosters should have date of birth and age listed
I should've never unignored you to see what you said. But since I did, I'll respond.
To start-- Which one of your posts haven't you gone after another poster? And if you're going to come after me, at least get your story straight. I never said ESPN promotes Johnny Football OVER ND. I said "without their coverage" he doesn't win. For example, they had multiple highlights and segments in primetime of the guy attempting... and missing an extra point. That was on their primary network. Who knows how long ESPN2 had Skip and whoever debating about him.
Why don't you get the f*ck out of here troll....come back and get your a$$ owned when ND wins the title!!

They have enough of an offense to play for the title don't they!!
ESPN has multi-billion $$$$ deal with SEC.
It's called promoting your investment. The kid had a great year no doubt.
All the talk about the award is driven by the media. I can't count how many commercials I saw about the award or how many times I had to watch the awkward posing and forced conversation by the three of the finalists. It was just about as bad as those dumba$$ Clay Matthews commercials for Zaxby's.
I too am very glad it's over with. I would have been very happy that Manti won had the voters selected him but this has become nothing but a popularity contest.
