I know ND/USC is the big game tonight... but finally getting a chance to see Manziel play. Kid has "it".

Yeah he does. Can't believe he was only a 3-star prospect with the numbers he put up in high school (30 rushing TD, 45 passing TD his senior year).

It's going to be sick when ND finishes #1 and T'eo wins a Heisman he doesn't deserve just because the media will feel the need to give a ND player the trophy.

He won't win. Manziel has that locked up.

You'd think so, but remember, this is the media that will vote ND for anything and everything they can, so it's basically between him and Manziel right now, though T'eo shouldn't even be in the top 3.

He won't win it. I do think he deserves to be a finalist, though.

Don't understand the playcalling at the end of that drive. Two QB sneaks and a fade pass. Should have just kept giving it to Riddick.

Great regular season. Never thought they'd get through that schedule undefeated.

Congrats to ND. Great season by them.

As for Heisman I think Manziel, Klein and Te'o will get invited.

As for Manziel, I have not had as much fun watching a college player since Flutie. Of course, I saw Flutie's last home game at BC (v. Army -have the ticket stub). 

When Manziel went down with the knee in the first quarter, I hate to say it, but it was almost comical how silent the stadium became.  It was as if there had been some massive hit needing the ambulance straight on the field. It was quieter than a tennis tournament before a serve, and it was 90,000 people. It was pretty clearly twisted, and you did not know if it would need surgery initially, but it was not a spinal injury thing.  Of course he came back in and threw 2 more touchdowns and ran for one.

Manziel is one of those guys who is an accurate enough passer that he would be very good if he never left the pocket.  Who is his comparable style-wise?  Brees?

What happens when teams have great seasons but are restricted from making bowl games. 

Penn State
Ohio State

Had bowl worthy seasons but are being punished for past transgressions.

Well, punishment usually comes after the fact.  While we're picking on the Big Ten, let's not forget the ACC is in a pretty similar situation...

I wasn't picking on any conference.  Those just happen to be 2 teams I remember having penalties.  I think USC is in there too.

UNC
Miami

They sit around this off-season while the NCAA pretends it can evenly dispense justice.

Scholarships, but they served their bowl ban last year.

I think they offered Les Miles something like 20% of all profits from Arkansas businesses not controlled by the Walton family.

Somebody (people) are hellbent on keeping Manziel's arrest off of his wikipedia page.  There's been a battle all day of someone taking it off and then someone adding it back.  It's back now but I checked earlier this morning and it was gone.

This is part of the the history page, all edits taking it out and putting it back on today.
