It really was no surprise that Notre Dame football’s star senior linebacker Manti Te’o was named as a Heisman finalist.
After all, he’s been the most dynamic player on arguably the best defense in college football all season. For 2012, Te’o has racked up quite a resume. Notre Dame is 12-0 and going to the BCS National Game for the first time in the BCS era. He’s had signature...

Collin The post Manti vs. Manziel appeared first on No Coast Bias.
Now that the season is wrapped up, we have a clear picture of the Heisman race and all polls lead to Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel becoming the first freshman, true or redshirt, to ever win the Trophy.
