Shazier’s Edge

A “Fear the Hat” reader suggested I compare the stats of much-hyped Notre Dame senior linebacker Manti Te’o to those of Ohio State sophomore linebacker Ryan Shazier.

Do keep in mind when you read these numbers that Notre Dame currently is 16th nationally in terms of strength of schedule, and Ohio State is 55th based on Jeff Sagarin’s ratings. There’s no doubt that what Te’o has done, he’s done against better competition.

Now on to the math!

Interceptions per game
Manti Te’o .556
Ryan Shazier .100

Pass breakups per game
Manti Te’o .444
Ryan Shazier 1.00

Forced fumbles per game
Manti Te’o .000

Tackles per game
Manti Te’o 9.67
Ryan Shazier 9.80

Sacks per game
Manti Te’o .111
Ryan Shazier .400

QB Hurries per game
Manti Te’o .444
