There have been plenty of surprises in the 2012 college football season, none bigger than the rise of the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame to the top of the BCS standings with a perfect 12-0 season.
Notre Dame came into this season unranked and on nobody’s radar to compete for a national title. But now everything has changed, they completed their perfect season this past week when they defeated their rivals of USC in the Trojans’ house.
The Fighting Irish have many good players on their team; in fact, they have many great players on their team. But no player is better, more valuable, and more of a leader than Notre Dame’s star senior linebacker Manti Te’o.
