The sentiment after Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting was that a defensive player might never win it.
If Te'o, on a 12-0 team getting the Notre Dame hype and with a great personal story can't take home the trophy, then when will it happen?
Well, there might be a good chance a purely defensive player finally wins the Heisman next year.
South Carolina sophomore defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was a dominant force this year, and because of the NFL's very unfair draft eligibility rule, he will be back for another season. He will have a lot of things going for him.
