In any event, I pity this guy if he gets drafted to the NFL. He will have hell to pay in the locker room.
He was definitely in on it. The university had an "internal investigation" in early November, and I bet they wouldn't have said anything if it didn't go public. Honestly, that school has issues.

Te'o would definitely be a nice pick-up. Anyone know much about him?
Guess we didn't have enough imaginary girls.

I know all these jokes are going around, but he probably made it up for publicity. Continue the jokes though. I enjoy them immensely.

An issue that I keep thinking about--and which I haven't seen addressed much is why the press just took his word for it and never really investigated the existence of this girl. No attempts to locate the obit or anything else until way too late. I'm usually not a conspiracy theorist but I wonder if her non-existence was known but no one wanted to "out" it as ND was having such a great yewar and ND was finally relevant again...

I'm pretty sure it's because the school went with it too. Could be wrong though.

They definitely did. I read yesterday about some students that started a foundation or something and the school sent someone to make a video report of it sometime in Jan...which is after Manti suppossedly told them it was a hoax on Dec 26th. Messed up man.

The love of his life.

Their eyes met at Stanford in 2009 and they had dates in Hawaii and she was the most beautiful girl he had ever seen but she wouldn't Skype so he could see what she looked like.

She was in a bad car accident but he never visited her. She died from complications.

She had leukemia but he never visited her. She died from it. He didn't go to her funeral.

Ah, the love of his life. Pure BS.

I think he's gay. Makes the most logical sense.

A sports radio talk show was questioning his attachment to her because he was dating lots of girls all during that time. They said his teammates didn't think he was all that serious about her. That said, my first instinct was the same as yours.

For whatever reason this story was made up, it is all over the national and local news. The Media will not let up.

Don't know about the gay thing...don't really care. Someone's going to step up as the first openly gay ACTIVE NFL player after Skip Bayless andStephen A Smith yell about it for a year it'll be no big deal. A theory I heard today that makes sense is this started with one or more of Teo's friends as a prank started flirting with him online and it was a casual fling for Manti...when they "killed" her off after his grandma died and the Heisman buzz started for him he started making up details...yes lying...and it took off on national tv...about as rational an explanation as any I've heard
