Teo chooses Notre Dame

Manti Te’o took a deep breath before a crowded room, TV cameras pointing at him, three hats resting on his table.

The two-time Star-Bulletin defensive player of the year then did the unexpected. He put on a green-and-black hat. Problem is, for diehard Hawaii fans, the letters on the hat weren’t ‘UH.’ Instead, they were ‘ND’ with a bold ‘IRISH’ right below.

The Punahou linebacker’s decision to pick the Irish over USC and UCLA was a stunner at this morning’s press conference, hosted by Pacific Islands Athletic Alliance and Mayor Mufi Hannemann.
