You know, we're missing the big point of this discussion. How bold is Manti Te'o for having a stance of "I don't like cancer"? What a trooper.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Should be easy enough to find out who Manti was talking to if one of Ronaiah's cousins has leukemia and the girl actually "knew cancer lingo" on the phone with his mom.

I'm def in this camp now after getting up to date with the recent developments:

-Ronaiah is a closeted homosexual (probably due to his religion + culture) who catfishes dudes regularly. Probably had 10+ "relationships" going on as recent as 3 years ago. He does this to fulfill his desires.

-Te'o was completely duped. He was never in love with Lennay, but enjoyed the online interactions and liked the idea of someone across the country being obsessed with him. He's clearly a narcissist. They talk on the phone a few brief times. Not to the extent he says.

-His friends/teammates know of the "relationship" but think nothing of it. They've never seen her and he's not on the phone with her a lot so it's a non issue. They assume it's an incredibly minor part of his life. He's not leaving bars on guys nights to take calls from her etc.

- She "dies" and he tells his friends/teammates as a natural reaction. They tell coaches. Media finds out. Media has "girlfriend of Te'o dies of cancer" and nothing else. He fills in the blanks trying to look as compassionate as possible. Ronaiah kills her off because he wants max attention. Thinks it will make him love the relationship more even though it ends it. Same reason for the cancer angle. MAX ATTENTION. Ronaiah needs to get out of it what he feels like he is putting into it to be satisfied.

-Ronaiah is upset he ended it. Gets lonely. Reinitiates contact in early December.

-Te'o realizes he made so much of it up. Didn't think he'd have to answer to anyone. Realizes he's been duped, but understands how inconsistent his story is. He figured the only other person that knew the way the relationship really was was dead. Finally he realizes he can't fix it and it's going to break so he tells his parents.

-ND finds out. They take the details they want an spin a story that is ready to go if it breaks.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

If Teo told a perfect story that had no flaws to then we'd have to conclude it was written by a PR guy. Because a young naive scam victim is going to be tripping over the amount of lies he's been told. Something to think about while we search for hidden symbols of homosexuality.

I mean Te'o lied about meeting her early on. He's lying now about the phone convos occurring because that was the best part of his fabricated account of his "relationship". Would bet money he didn't talk to anyone on the phone that he thought was Lennay more than a handful of times during their relationship. In those instances it was probably Ronaiah's cousin and they were likely very brief convos when one party was "busy and had to run". He isn't even able to recognize he voice when she calls from the grave ffs!

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

ND is full of ****. but, Tuiasosopo has a % chance of being gay, but it's more likely that he was just getting off on being connected to a possible heisman candidate because he was also a failed football player himself. You can't underestimate the wanting to be connected to someone that is guaranteed millions of dollars effect.

Theory doesn't work. He started this before Te'o was anything close to Heisman candidate. Hell, he ended it before Te'o was anything close to a Heisman candidate.

Despite popular opinion Te'o was being talked about by Mayock etc. as a high defensive draft pick, and one of the best MLB in the country in the earlier games of the season. Point being he wasn't some low regarded prospect going into the season as so many suggest, and as ND started to win low scoring games it became even more prominent. But, you are correct in saying he wasn't some highly regarded Heisman candidate before the season starts, as it almost never works out the way to begin with.

T'eo isn't the first person Tuiasosopo has catfished though. He's done it to other guys.

It could have been done out of jealousy, or maybe Mnati going to ND over USC had something to do with it. This isn't the first time he's done this, this kid is ****ed in the head.

Didn't he only lie once to his parents about having met MK? I can see why he would lie about it.

True, he definitely has the closet factor. But, when you say other guys, i'm only aware of 1 other person he duped. So, was there a girl involved on that too?

We really need to hear from this girl in the Te'o case, it will be really telling on what actually went down because CAA isn't going to care if Tuiasosopo is gay.

There is probably a girl involved in the cases where the guy getting catfished demand to talk on the phone and Ronaiah deems the relationship worthy enough to get his cousin briefly involved.

You guys are forgetting one key component: the nature of the conversations (with Te'o and anyone else he catfished). Seems VERY likely at least some of them were sexual in nature.

He didn't really have a choice IMO


Dad: Hey, so did you meet MK?
Manti: No
Dad: Why not? you were 20 minutes away...
Manti: Uh-huh

Much more simpler to say, "yeah, yada yada yada"
