I am convinced Te'o was duped.

Manti Te'o acknowledges lying in first TV interview - ESPN

If Te'o had been part of this scheme, there wouldn't be 100s of hours of phone calls.
I suppose he could have dialed a number and then left the phone on for a long time to create a trail in the phone records, but that seems way too diabolical to be true.

Along with how shocking it is that he was duped for so long, I can't believe the perpetrator(s) maintained their own interest in this to that degree. They apparently had nothing better to do for several hours per night for four months than to dupe someone, with no tangible gain.

This story is crazy.

EDIT: When I posted this, the link's title referred to Te'o's interview, but the link takes you to the ESPN story about the phone records.

Agreed. I'll buy that he was duped to begin with, but the tweets and the fact that he was speaking to a dude pretending to be a girl must have given him a cause for skepticism at some point.

He definitely played up the significance of his relationship in front of the cameras, and I think he had cause to know something was wrong but was more concerned with the publicity he was getting.

He was talking to the dude, not a woman. Phone records don't show who was on the other end of the phone call.
