    If the article is true then that's insane. I'll just wait and see what happens before I decide what to think about it though.

    I don't understand how Te'o could possibly be innocent in this. Just don't believe it.

    Who was he talking to every night over the phone??

    So was he conned or did he perpetrate the whole thing? The article is so long I didn't read all of it.

    Author is on Le Batard right now.

    Wait until he gets to the NFL and people learn that he faked being a good linebacker.

    This Le Batard interview with the guy from Deadspin is very good. Will post link to it here when 790 gets it up on their website.

    If there's any story you need to fully read it's this one. Going to be the biggest one of the year, no question.

    There has already been an update, with Te'o and his family telling Notre Dame that he was "victim" of a hoax. Which is complete bull****, as if you read the article, or know anything about the story from this College season, he said he talked with her all the time and met her more than a few times.

    Alot of people are speculating that he might be gay. May be crazy speculation but think about what a Mormon going to Notre Dame would do to cover up maybe a different relationship? I'm not saying I'm sold on it. People are just speculating... But this could go any number of ways. I'm trying to think of a reason why he would create such a lie and I can't think of a reason better than that lol..

    What we do know is he was apart of it and him denying it is complete horse****.

    This has to be one of the weirdest sports stories ever.

    Regardless of whether he was in on the hoax (many of the pieces in this story don't add up), or actually got duped for over a year (which looks a lot worse, imo), his draft stock has to take a huge plunge after this story, right? I mean, how the hell do you value a player highly who is dumb/crazy enough to buy-in to such a crazy story?

    You could be on to something here. If he is gay, he could have used this story to avoid relationships with women and the questions that would come from his lack of involvement with a woman. He couldve simply sold everyone the "the love of my life died and I cant get involved emotionally with a woman again" line whenever anyone questioned why he dosent have a gf or wife.

    I know one thing is for sure. AJ McCarron's girlfriend is real, and she's spectacular.

    Te'o contends that he made up the stories of actually meeting Lennay Kekua, his reported girlfriend, because he was embarrassed to admit their relationship only consisted of online interaction.

    But that would make too much sense.

    The story is way too grandiose to be anything other than an elaborate hoax collaborated by Manti Te'o himself (with some additional help). He's basically hoodwinked the entire nation.

    My money is on him confessing that he's gay.

    That wouldn't surprise me. This whole hoax story, and his involvement in said story, certainly fall under the category of ******ry.

    All of those pictures of Teo missing tackles are actually him hugging his girlfriend.

    The gay theory actually makes the whole story make alot more sense and actually paints Teo in a more sympathetic light.

    I would never think an athlete would come out this early in his career, if that is indeed the case, it would be groundbreaking.

    That's the easy thing to do
    Everything is Nick Saban's fault at the end of the day

    Hey bud.. how's it going?? Always nice 2C U.

    Saban? Nah, think he's exonerated on this one (although he may well have other "straight up" issues) :up:

    You guys can make jokes but the sad reality is a girl who doesn't exist is dead.
