Notre Dame gave Yahoo's Pat Forde a chance to spend a regular school day with a handful of Notre Dame players to see how life for them is a little different than at other BCS football powers:
From Yahoo! Sports: Unlike at other big-time football institutions, Notre Dame players live and study among the university's other students.
Was this before, or after he voted for Manziel for the Heisman?
My luck w/the Irish 20-6...GO IRISH!!!
You really can't blame anyone for voting for Manziel. Would have loved to see Manti win, but it doesn't make Manziel any less deserving.
Attended: Michigan @ ND 2010 Southern Cal @ ND 2011 Stanford @ ND 2012 BCS National Title Game vs. Alabama-Jan 7, 2013 ND @ Air Force 2013
Johnny football 1-2 vs ranked teams... He's fun player to watch but under .500 against ranked opponents should have been a deal breaker.
As for his numbers... There are 4 or 5 big 12 qbs in recent years who set all-time passing records in yards and tds and werent even invited to new York.
Whatever its over, heisman award has lost a lot of its luster to me now its just a ESPN darling award imop.
Win the NC Manti, lead your team on the field and do what only the SEC is supposedly able to do and be the best in all.the land!
Thank you for posting the article. It's a very nice read. Maybe our friends in the SEC would enjoy reading it...............................................NOT!
Agreed. Not to mention he wasn't even in the top 3 rated QBs in his own conference. The fact that his numbers, while impressive, were compiled against two 1-AA schools and two other non BCS teams (SMU, LT)- that's 33% of A&M's schedule, also diminishes them. Simply stated, if McCarron throws a TD instead of the INT at the goalline to beat A&M, Manti wins the Heisman.

Actually, simm, I think that probably would have bolted McCarron to Heisman driver's seat, based on the rationale behind any of these voting dunderheads!
Loved that article. I have a son who is a junior in high school and want him desperately to just visit ND. He is not into sports in part due to the arrogance of most athletes at his private school. He wants to be a mechanical engineer and is a whiz at calculus and chemistry. I think he would fall in love with the people and the place. Maybe this spring.
Ooh the dreaded downote... And anonymously of course, well you can't debate with those who don't have the chest for it... Too soon Les?
If only reporters that work the beat every single day could get that kind of access.
