Burfict was a liability ON the field moreso than off. He was fat, lazy, and played poorly his senior year.

Imagine if Te'o was actually fighting whether to believe this stuff for a month and then they bring the catfish to Miami.

Like he gets a call his maybe dead gf is at the bcs hotel, but security won't let him leave the room as tears stream down his face.

"I just want to say hello/goodbye!!!"

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

The crazy isn't an issue for NFL teams as much as its an issue that he won't fit in at all in any locker room. Dez Bryant has serious issues but his teammates presumably don't think hes a "freak and a very weird dude." The bigger issue is he'll bring a media circus teams won't want to deal with.

this. at least 20 times yesterday and today, i've told myself, "ok, it was fun, but it's gotten boring now, and will probably die down a bit with te'o on lockdown."

i really hope somehow the hot chick really in on it somehow and wasn't just an innocent bystander. unlikely, but would be cool.

I wouldn't exactly have called Te'o an asset on the field in the national championship game.

Decent point. Hard to pick on JUST Te'o though.

Transcript from the Schaapp / Manti interview----


Quote:
Manti: There were times when I was doing Jack that I actually felt ******ed, like really ******ed. I mean, I brushed my teeth ******ed, I rode a bus ******ed.
Schaap: Damn.
Manti: In a weird way, I had to sort of just free myself up to believe that it was okay to be stupid or dumb.
Schaap: To be a moron.
Manti: Yeah.
Schaap: To be moronical.
Manti: Exactly, to be a moron.
Schaap: An imbecile.
Manti: Yeah.
Schaap: Like the dumbest mother****er that ever lived.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Here's the thing though: Burfict's draft stock dropped because of consistently poor performance over the course of the year, followed by showing up fat to the combine/pro day.

I still think Te'o could be drafted day 1 or 2.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

So what happens it Te'o gets in the same room with this douchebag prankster?



Or is he going to be all god-like and forgive him for potentially ruining his football career?

I know that I'd go for the ear.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

great


narrative that he never knew is catching on


i guess when you hire the best firms it can work, but not unless you sell your soul and your next 5 years of pay in the NFL.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

@McMurphyESPN: Te'o never asked for money during plot, but Kekua once requested his checking account number to send him money. Te'o didn't provide it

LOL at "to send him money". Probably in the African e-mail scammer kind of way.
