Manti Te'o is the most decorated college football player in history. Michigan's Charles Woodson held the record with five postseason awards, but Te'o just topped that tonight after winning the Maxwell Award, making that the sixth award for Te'o.
Manti got to this total by also winning the Walter Camp Award:

Does it even matter if Te'o wins the Heisman? Not really. The Heisman would be insane right now, but after you look at Te'o's other awards, and the fact he is playing in the BCS National Title game is enough.
Manti Te'o is the greatest college football player ever.
Actually, the Holtz quote I like better is "If you burn down your neighbor's house, it doesn't make your house look better." People should feel good about Manti winning his awards, even if he isn't their first choice. It would be hard to find any player out there that demonstrates on-field talent and leadership, strong academics in the classroom, and character in the community more than Te'o.
if you are going to claim that he "hasn't gone up against any competition" you lose all credibility. jealousy does brings out the worst in people, huh?
In the words of Lou Holtz: "It's better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you're an idiot than to open it, and leave no doubt."
@BuckeyeEmpire @thesubwaydomer @11W @UrbanBuckeye I just threw up in my mouth a little...wait.. no, yeah that's vomit.
@Miles11W @thesubwaydomer Either one of the greatest trolls of all time or someone who just started watching football in '09.
@Miles11W @thesubwaydomer @GerdOzone Isn't the 57th-leading NCAA tackler of EVERY year the greatest player in history?
@BuckeyeEmpire @thesubwaydomer He's not even a top 20 LB ever. To call him the greatest all-time FB player is the most asinine thing ever.
@BuckeyeEmpire @thesubwaydomer you're shitting me, right? Ever? Greatest player EVER? Like, the ever that means throughout history?
@TheSubwayDomer haha look, Ill give it to u that he's a great player, but EVER? Hes not exactly going against the best competition this year
@TheSubwayDomer @buckeyeempire of course not. Statistics are completely irrelevant when comparing players. Everyone knows that.
