I wouldn't be surprised if the media turns this into a story about a poor player that had to hide his orientation and had no choice but to make up a girlfriend or some such nonsense.

    Maybe but ND certainly never acknowledged the real-life sequel.

    Pretty sickening to try and use something like this for publicity, and just shows how little true journalism exists now. Hopefully karma catches up to this guy big time.

    The girlfriend is not listed in the Social Security Death index under that name.

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

    With all the hoopla over this gf's death, not one ESPN reporter ever thought to look up a death certificate? No one was even curious until Deadspin got a tip? People out there who consider themselves sports journalists should be ashamed of their own lack of curiosity.

    That's already been established. Moving on, how could SI and the South Bend Tribune buy this:

    "Te'o talks to Lennay nightly, "going to sleep while on the phone with her," according to Sports Illustrated. "When he woke up in the morning his phone would show an eight-hour call, and he would hear Lennay breathing on the other end of the line."

    Me and my incredibly real super model wife couldn't believe this when we read it. Who makes up fake significant others to make themselves look better? That's just bizarre.

    It never happened to me personally, but heck I remember some professors at Alabama that would require obituaries and then some (just short of a death certificate) to get an excused absence for a funeral.
