    His local paper will have a field day with this one. A story of Te'o struggles to find a girlfriend, to "Win One for the Zipper"!

    Confirmed from 2 sources: ESPN has known about the Manti Te'o story for 10 days. Had been reporting it, but could not confirm.
    Attempted coverup maybe???

    They say that, when you put something out there on the net, prepare for it to remain forever. Many of the material put out by T'eo and his dad are still out there and they are in complete conflict with what he's trying to say now...

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

    Feel bad for Manti....

    1. Has zero to do with nd! If urban 's wife got cought cheating would Ohio st be in deep trouble?

    2. Probably an innocent religious man that got duped by some sickos

    3. Social media is the worst thing that has ever happened to real life.

    4. Team knew on 12/26 and without a doubt is a major reason our d got ran over. The leader was probably in ruins.

    5. Kelly may have really considered NFL to be able to approach football in a 100% business mode.

    I guess we will see. But hopefully Manti if innocent recovers and plays well in the NFL.

    Well there you have it, they finally have their excuse.

    Lennay Kekua was a Stanford student and Cardinal football fan when the two exchanged glances, handshakes and phone numbers that fateful weekend three seasons ago.

    She was gifted in music, multi-lingual, had dreams grounded in reality and the talent to catch up to them.

    The plan was for Kekua to spend extensive time with the whole Te'o family when upwards of 40 of them came to South Bend in mid-November for ND's Senior Day date with Wake Forest.

    "They started out as just friends," Brian Te'o said. "Every once in a while, she would travel to Hawaii, and that happened to be the time Manti was home, so he would meet with her there. But within the last year, they became a couple.

    While not a handsome man, he is not exactly homely looking either. I can't believe with all the co-eds on campus at ND he couldn't find one instead of having a supposed internet relationship. I mean he's a football player and any shallow girl would go for a starter.

    Manti wasn't missing tackles against Bama - he was hugging his imaginary girlfriend.
    Saying ‘I'’m sorry’ is the same as saying ‘I apologize...except at a funeral.”

There are too many videos and too many quotes -- whoever thought the "he was hoodwinked" thing was going to work is obviously stupid and naive, oh, wait....
    He also said he met her in person after a Stanford game and spoke with her for hours every day she was in the hospital. It's hard for me to imagine what got this ball rolling to the point he felt he had to roll with it.

    Odd indeed.

    Teo is lying. He never was duped. He was the one trying to dupe everyone else and build up his reputation through a dead girlfriend who he knew never existed!
