    Like the Michigan fan wearing a lei I can hope BYU beats Notre Dame, but I would find it impossible not to cheer for Manti! Go Cougars and Manti!

    Chris B - please stop claiming you are a Utah fan. Clearly you are just an anti-Mormon, anti-BYU fan. Real Utah fans, like me, are embarrassed by your constant drivel.

    I read five years ago as to why he chose to go to Notre Dame, it wasn't just for the pretige of playing for Notre Dame.
    What a story- neat to see how his college career in ending- mission accomplished.

    Do Mormons really believe people chose their circumstances? Serious question from a non-believer here.

    People starving to death in Africa chose that circumstance?

    I think not.

    Manti is likely thrilled with his decision to not give up football for two years and likely give up a chance to play in the NFL. Future mormon athletes should look to him when deciding whethere they want to play in the NFL or not.

    Thanks for choosing Notre Dame Manti. I'm not a die-hard Catholic or Notre Dame fan, but you've made me more of a Notre Dame fan than I typically am.

    What a great young man. I was hoping he would convert to my religion(although I haven't been inside a Catholic Church in years) during his time at Notre Dame. Oh well, he's turned into an amazing player.

    He must be thrilled to be playing football at a great religious institution, have BCS quality teammates, BCS quality coaches, and actually be in the discussion for a BCS game.

    Only one place in the nation where all this is possible!

    Keep up the good work Manti
