"the Crimson Tide had a lot of success running straight at him. It was an ugly game for Jones as a run-defender."
I hate to think what people would think of him now if that was a nationally televised prime time game like Te'o's.
Admittedly, Te'o had a worse game than Jones did, but why does Jones get a pass and Te'o slides off peoples draft boards?
I can see it now...Te'o gets drafted by a perennial defensive powerhouse like Chicago or Pittsburgh and we get to see him on the cover of Madden in a few years while we grab a hybrid DE/OLB and finish 4-12.
I didnt watch the game, but I looked up his stats to see if he did any thing positive to explain the difference. He had 2 sacks which sounds like a very good game rushing the passer.
I would think the explanation is very simple, Jones still did some positive things. Te'o did not. If Te'o would have stood out in a particular area, whether it was in coverage, tackling, etc. I am sure the scrutiny would have been much less.
Playing well in a particular area and playing poorly in another area is much different than being dominated completely.
Now, I did not watch the game, but this seems to be the logical answer.

Hes an idiot whether he was part of the hoax or if he actually thought he had a girlfriend. Why did he do this? He wanted the heisman... was it worth it? Sure it probably took 5 minutes to come of with this crap.
What a twisted *******. I never liked the guy. He has those walleyes that you can never quite look him directly in the eye. He looked mentally challenged to me at first glace and this would indicate he is.
I really don't think he's that average and I don't see how someone messing with his mind messed up a guys draft stock.. Alabama made a lot of good pro prospects looks bad this year. They are the best team in the nation. Their oline are all top 3 round picks. I just don't see how one game can make ppl think this way
