    Outlined against a blue-gray October sky, the Four Horsemen rode again. In dramatic lore they are known as Famine, Pestilence, Destruction and Death. These are only aliases. Their real names are Stuhldreher, Miller, Crowley and Layden. They formed the crest of the South Bend cyclone before which another fighting Army football team was swept over the precipice at the Polo Grounds yesterday afternoon as 55,000 spectators peered down on the bewildering panorama spread on the green plain below. - Grantland Rice 1924 :clover:

A Brian Urlacher slash Rey rey from SC.

      This class is certainly setting the Texas like trend. Get em in early.

        ----Does this guy really have an ND verbal offer? It says he's got verbal offers from USC, UCLA, Tennesee, Cal and alot of others. If that is true then he looks to be the #1 player next year and if not that then top 5.

          In an interesting about-face, USC head coach Pete Carroll who had reportedly told all previous LDS signees at USC that he would not hold scholarships for them if they chose to serve LDS missions personally called Brian and told him he would definitely support Mantis firm church mission plans and hold a scholarship until he returned.

            you know its interesting. You don't think of players from Hawaii as ever being recruited well except by Hawaii. Just thought it was a little wierd.

                Hawaii's elite and not so elite are prized catches through the west. I count 40 some Hawaiians on Pac10 rosters.

                  It looks like it. Here's a few quotes from a recent article about Manti.

                  I have 16 (verbal) offers right now, said Teo. Off the top of my head, BYU, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, Notre Dame, Stanford, Cal, Texas A&M and Colorado are ones that are standing out. But Im still open to all options. Right now, Im just concentrating on my season.
                  Teo is an excellent student, holding a 3.7 GPA and planning to take the SAT this fall.
                  I want to major in architecture or engineering, and I want to go to a school that has a strong focus on that, said Teo.

                      Alright, well we'll put him on the offer list when there is confirmation from a 2nd source.

                        I added a couple of videos to the first post in Manti's profile.

                        This is the first one. It's some of the highlight's from his freshman year (2005).

                          This is the 2nd one I added. These are some of the highlights from his sophmore year. (2006)

                            I know Charlie is being very stingy about the 2009 class, but why have we not joined the rest of the world and offered Te'o?

                              Nd was one of the first teams to verbally offer Manti, but they just hven't given him an official written offer yet. I know CW likes to do it in person if he can so maybe that's the hang up.

                                Probably come shortly after the season. We will be attacking the recruiting pretty hard then.

                                    Yes im aware that this sounds awful but that's my 2 cents.

                                        Wow! thats the best tape I've seen. He's like a combo of Arthur Brown and Steven Filer. He seems to have the athleticism and hitting ability of Brown along with the ability to weave through traffic like Filer, who is the best I've seen this year. This kid will be special, we need to get him.

                                                    True but if he is willing to go to some 3rd world hell hole, where they have no idea what toilet paper is, for his religious mission....I think that the clim at BYU would be a cakewalk to him!!!

                                                      I take it your not big on helping people. If Manti wants to try to better the world we should praise him, not rip him or the people he's trying to help just because it might cause him to not pick our favorite school.

                                                        That didn't seem to be ripping anyone... some of the places that they go on their missions really are hellacious. That's why they go to help people - because it's a fact that the area is so awful and needs outside help.

                                                        Am I missing something here? Is he a Mormon... from Hawaii? I like BYU, and I would much rather see someone with his size and talent go there over USuCk.

                                                          Very big Mormon population in Hawaii and the other south Pacific areas.

                                                            Have to agree with you GG. If his faith is that important to him we should applaud that. Alot of young people today are more into the me first attitude. I would love to see him come to N.D. but will respect him if he chooses to follow his faith.

That was the main reason that BYU was Hawaii's biggest rival when they were both in the WAC. Steve Young also had his very exspensive and private wedding at a Morman church in Hawaii.

The info I saw indicatded that he is a very religious young man that may find it hard to be a school that focuses on a different religion, or one that is all about the glitz, glamor and parties. I've also heard that his school it's self also draws similar camparisons to BYU.

Maybe he is only telling the writer/interviewer what they want to hear, but it still sounded like we have a shot.

From what I have read Mormons don't look too kindly on Catholics. It's evident that they spend alot of time in catholic countries strying to convert the faithful.
