    I think he was in on this from day 1,

    someone with his permission created a fake girlfriend, and fake was just fine with him since since, well...he doesn't date females (and that's OK, except to Heisman voters and people running a Catholic school)

    Then they got the idea of publicizing her "tragic death" to help his Heisman chances

    and yet somehow they didn't really think this one through.

    I don't buy he did this for the Heisman that was a byproduct in all of this. I mean Brady Quinn was up for a Heisman and nobody went this far for it..

    I'm inclined to believe he was gay and this lie just spun out of control and he's really involved with that football player from USC Ronnie Tiascupo(I don't know how to spell his last name) but given how he's a Mormon and goes to ND of all places coming out would've been the worst thing(obviously it wasn't but I can see why he'd think that)

    From what it looks like and what is being reported, he has to be in on it. No way he was duped.

    He talked about meeting her face to face in the past, etc.

    Probably should save face now (or whatever he can) as if deadspin does some more great work on this (I am always impressed by their investigative work, such as the Sarah Phillips story), then they will find something more damning, I have no doubt.

    Kudos to Deadspin. Nice work!

    All that effort and still lost to Johnny Hate Crime...

    ---

    As great as it would be if Teo were in on it, some of these Mormon kids can be pretty sheltered, so I can maybe buy him falling for an online girlfriend hoax.

    edit: Lance Armstrong is probably pretty stoked about the timing of this story, huh?

    I could buy him being gay and just trying to hide it from his parents but if that is true why leak the story to the public? He did strike me as a strange guy when they had him on espn and interviewing with Dicky V. I still think he made it up just for PR to win the award and get PR that is the only logical reasoning he seemed like an attention hogger when they interviewed him.

    In an interview with ESPN for College GameDay on Oct. 2, Te'o said that Kekua's last words to him were "I love you."

    He also said that she was "the most beautiful girl I've ever met."
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    I really, really hope he got fooled. I don't know how that is possible, but I hope so. Because otherwise he used the death of his grandmother as nothing other than a ploy. That makes him worse than a scumbag, it makes him evil.

    Wow this is the craziest **** I have ever heard in sports, this is up there at brawl-level crazy/weird (though in a different way).

    Manti may have been in on it, but I highly doubt it was for him to cover up being gay. He could easily confide in a close friend at ND to pose as his girlfriend if that was what he was worried about. Why go through all this trouble?

    He may have been fooled, I dunno that is a stretch though.

    this presser is making it even more confusing


    he said "we met" and his dad took that as in person but Teo meant online. LOL does he think we were born yesterday?

    says they planned meetings in Hawaii but she didn't show lol.

    The affection was real?? They never met how can they even be considered bf and gf?

    I am just all confused by this lol/

    EDIT: This tweet is how I agree completely..

    To me the big thing here is Skype: I travel overseas for work and always talk to my wife on Skype. Wouldn't he have at least wanted to see her in some form other than pictures? Weeeeird.

    I don't believe he was fooled.

    Let's put this together, a QB that he knew, a guy his age, is apparently on the other end of the twitter account? I think we all already know what they were trying to cover up. They are just idiots. Also, assuming he was in on it, and they caused the gf to die of LEUKEMIA with the whole Pagano thing so fresh in the NFL's mind....well, I wouldn't draft him.

    There are two options....either Manti Te'o all American linebacker unkowingly fell in love with a twitter account run by his good friend who happens to be a dude, which makes him a pathetic loser.

    Or he is Manti Te'o all americna linebacker who was trying to hide something and then decided to boost his heisman hype.

    Yep this has been widely reported. I mean how do you explain her brother supposedly letting him know about her death? How do you explain the fact that someone who would have been "hoaxing" him would have known so quickly about his gma if he wasn't in on it? They shoudl just own up. I think the question right now to me isn't whether Manti was in on it, it is how deep is the rabbit hole at Notre Dame.

    In this day and age, I can see getting hoaxed.

    It sounds silly, but we will in a virtual world. Even before twitter and facebook really took off, I heard a story in JUCO back in like 04 or 05 about a kid who played a prank on his HS friend by creating a fake account on fb. It went on for 6 weeks, and it got bad. It was so bad they went to their parents and asked them to intervene, because they knew how in love he was with this "fake girl"

    That said, like others have mentioned, we like in a world of facetime and skype now. Star athletes have women throwing them at them all the time (at least at the D3 level I have seen it in person, I can only imagine at the D1 level)

    I am not saying he did not get duped, but things are not adding up.

    Like I said earlier, if he was not in on it he is extremely gullible and a bit stupid. If he is in on it then he is a pathetic person.

    I could see a prank spiraling out of control, but own up to it.

    And if Notre Dame is covering something up.....

    In his last statement, does he say that he only met her online and talked to her on the phone? I mean which is his stance? He did meet her in person or not? If he didn't, how can they be called boyfriend and girlfriend?

    Va come on man, in this day and age, with Skype, Cell phones, PLANES, how can you go a whole year without meeting someone? Either Te'o is the most poorly adjusted mother ****er on the planet or he was in on it. Think of all the **** he said, sent her flowers, met her a game, talked every day, knew her family, give me a break.

    I know lots of people (esp in HS and early college) who only meet on-line and they claim they are a couple.

    Non of them play football at the D1 level, better yet excel at their sport

    I can get that he may got hoaxed cause there are some really stupid people on this earth. I mean take example from the Compliance film (that is based on true events)
    But as you said something is not adding up here and i call BS on his excuses. What i don't get, why did he get into so much trouble? Just to get the voters sympathy for a damn trophy?
