The Manti cometh

Letter to the Editor | Wednesday, February 11, 2009

On Feb. 4, Hawaiian Linebacker Manti Te’o signed his letter of intent to play football at our beloved Notre Dame. The very next day, Editor-in-Chief Chris Hine claimed that the expectation placed upon his soldiers was “absurd talk” (“Kids are too young to warrant such hype,”?Feb. 5). Absurd? Is it absurd to assume that Manti will tackle 100 people per game, sack 40 quarterbacks, intercept 21 passes, score 12 defensive touchdowns, beat USC, win the Heisman, crush Tim Tebow, and save the economy, all the while leading us to the first of four consecutive undefeated seasons and national championships?
