WTF man? Love of your life is dying and you don't visit her because you were in school? That's ****ed up.

Dude it never crossed his mind. He probably was working on his 4th prestige in Call of Duty or something.

Analyst: And now we look in to the live feed of Manti Te'o's living room. You can see his whole family is there to support him. Right beside him, the empty spot on the love seat, sits Lennay, the love of his life

Wait so he didn't know about the hoax until 2 days ago...

Yet it affected his performance in the title game...?

He knew about it, he wasn't "sure" if it was a hoax or if she was really on the run from cartels and such.

I think those 'Bama guards might have had more to do with his performance in the title game

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

karak, how much is Ronaiah Tuiasosopo being paid to corroborate everything that will come out of manti's mouth?


how many millions u think it would take to pay a friend that you perpetuated this lie with who knew and could prove unequivocally that both were in on it?

"What was it like to sit in the room with Manti?"

Brilliant f***ing question.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

@ChiTribHamilton: Manti Te'o on Dec. 6 Lennay Kekua call: "I just got mad. I just went on a rampage. How could you do this to me?"

@ChiTribHamilton: Manti Te'o on Dec. 6 Kekua call: "I ended that conversation by saying simply this: You know what, Lennay, my Lennay died on Sept. 12."

He wants to believe...

Tui will probably get a fat check from ND to just agree with anything he is blamed for.

LOL at "to send him money". Probably in the African e-mail scammer kind of way.
The Nigerian banker scam has snared real victims before. Yet the thread says Teo is the stupidest 22 year old in the world because he was fooled but didn't hand over his account#.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Here's the problem I have with the line of questioning: it's all trying to make sense of the timeline. Every question and every answer is simply a rehashing of events.

...if she existed to him, I guess I'd expect the nature of his answers to be different. I haven't seen or heard an answer about what it was like to not be able to see her in the hospital, or what they shared, talked about, etc.

I guess he's more believable than Lance Armstrong. (Talk about damning with faint praise.)

he didn't say he turned her down because he was skeptical, maybe he just got distracted for .0000005 seconds and completely forgot what she was asking for

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

I think as more things come out, I am actually more confused.

If it really went down this way, good Lord, what an amazing, happy coincidence for SE that this elaborate years-long catfish hoax which required hours and hours of involvement by 3 people, happened to fall on a star player on an incredibly lucky Notre Dame team that somehow got to the MNC game...AND oh yeah he bought it hook line and sinker.
