Notre Dame linebacker Manti T’eo joined the show to talk about his season and Heisman chances.

Dan asked if having so much time before the national title game has a downside. He said no, it’s OK, as long as they can stay focused.

“I like it,” T’eo said. “I like the time I have to get healthy and to enjoy the last few weeks of school.”

Dan asked what if he told him that Notre Dame was in the title game and he was in the Heisman race at the beginning of the year, what would he say?

“I’d tell you it’s very out there,” T’eo said.

Dan asked T’eo if he’s different on the field on and off the field.

“Before games I’m really quiet,” T’eo said. “I’m very intense. When I’m off the field I’m quiet as well, but I’m more relaxed. I try to be friendly. I’m just very laid back. It’s night and day.”

T’eo looked back at his recruiting process and said if it was 24 hours shorter, he may not have gone to Notre Dame. He said he almost went to USC. He said the first Notre Dame game he saw was USC’s win in the “Bush push” game.

T’eo said that watching Dead Poets Society affected him — specifically the character who wanted to be an actor, but his parents wanted something else. T’eo said that with that in him mind, he reflected and was called to Notre Dame.

Dan asked T’eo if he wanted to get in the game last night when he was watching the Notre Dame game.

“The camera was a little too focused on me during the game,” T’eo said.
