    Notre Dame's statement is going to get hammered as well. The school knew about it the day after Christmas, and the family knew before then. It also paints Te'o as completely clueless, yet it's established in the article he knew the person behind the hoax.

    Yeah, man. This is bad. And their statement is a lie, too.

    Yeah, I'm not buying the ND statement. If this is true, manti is no victim.

    Re: Deadspin is saying Te'o's girlfriend's death was a hoax created for publicity

    So my first thought was that Teo is gay and was in a relationship with Tuiasosopo, and they invented this girl as a possible cover up. Am I off base?

    However, that doesn't explain the photo (Manti would have known if the picture didn't match the hoaxster) and if they were played they wouldn't have reported it to the press. Heck, wouldn't they have gone to the funeral?

    If Manti's draft status wasn't already wounded, it's dead now.

    I can't be for certain, but I believe it's been established by Te'o or his family that he or they did meet the girlfriend in the past, so there's a big lie.

    Cecil Hurt summed this up nicely

    So AJ's girlfriend is in the SI Swimsuit Issue and Te'o's is on the next edition of "Mythbusters.,"
