Christmas has come early for Irish fans.
According to Lisa Horne of Fox Sports, Manti Te’o delivered the following statement during the Lott Award Ceremony:
I feel I’m not done at Notre Dame. I’ll be coming back to Notre Dame.
To say I’m excited is anÂ understatement. Our front seven will be absolutely stacked for 2012 and I cannot wait to see Te’o lead the Irish defense on the field once again.
Guess we can put that whole Kelly “causing a divide” between Weis’ players and his own thing to rest for good.
Texan by birth, Irish by choice.
Born and raised in the great state of Texas, Tex is a first-generation Domer and a former student manager. After graduation, he left the cold winters of South Bend behind and returned back to his home state with a computer engineering degree in tow. Missing the daily grind of working football practices and talking football with fellow Irish fans every day, he took to blogging, a path which eventually led him to Her Loyal Sons. Continuously diving into stats and game film, Tex strives to break down every aspect of Fighting Irish football--even though it's determined to kill him.
