Well, when he played against 3 elite SEC defenses, he played well in 1 game and poorly in 2 games. Overall, not spectacular in his 3 biggest games. Normally, you would lose the Heisman for performing poorly in 2 of your 3 biggest games.
Again, I wouldn't say he played "poorly" against UF. Especially considering the circumstances.
Even so, who didn't perform "poorly" in some of their team's biggest games this year?
Who do you think should win? I could get on board with someone outside of Manziel maybe but Te'o even as a contender is a joke and I like the guy and have nothing against ND.
If you want to throw out a name like Marquise Lee or something I'd listen.
