Serious question: If Manti Te'o played for an undefeated Texas A&M team and Johnny Football played for a 10-2 Notre Dame, does anyone think Te'o would've been a finalist?

Lets combine the 2!
Te'o undefeated RS Freshman, Johnny 10-2 Senior....both would still be there.
Johnny 10-2 Freshman for ND, not beating Bama, probably not.
Te'o undefeated AM, beating Bama likely going to NC, yeah he would be there and winning it.
