Playing a 9-4 Miami maybe the equivalent of playing a 7-5 Penn State but it is not on par with playing a an 11-2 South Carolina or an 11-2 Baylor. Louisville's toughest competition this year was 12-1 UCF to whom they lost and at home no less.
If you compare Teddy's freshman year to Manziel's freshman year there is no comparison. Not even in the same ballpark.
Manziel & what he did as a freshman has nothing to do with this.....even though that same 11-1 Florida team that TB destroyed in the sugar bowl, pretty much locked up Manziel in college station. However, i don't put much stock into that, just like i don't put much stock into ridiculous stats or how many BCS conference teams a guy has faced. If you can play, your performance will be pretty much consistent across the board no matter who you played. & when looked at from that standpoint, TB more than any of these other qb prospects is about as consistent as you get.
