Obviously you caught the drift of what I was saying though. This beauty contest takes a lot more into consideration than just the players (with the occaisonal abberation like last year).
Why are you talking about multiple seasons in a conversation about the heisman?

Anyway, my point was mainly that the press had talked up what I believe is an undeserving player (Te'o) at an undeserving position (ILB) and that I was glad he didn't win. I would have been gladder had he not been there at all, but I'll take what I can get. Notre Dame was undefeated, so they were going to have a name in the discussion. Maybe they'd have won if you could nominate their front 7 as a group, but in any case, I think it was a joke that Te'o even got votes.

As far as Manziel goes, it's kind of hard to talk down the statistical significance of his performance this year. I think it was in general a year where we didn't really have a single stand-out player, a clear "that's the heisman winner" player, but I do think of the players on the list, he was the most deserving.
