Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Who even talks on the ****ing phone these days anyway? Isn't like 90% of college communication done via text?

That many calls almost makes me more suspicious. The scammer would have been pushing conversations via non phone insanely hard for obvious reasons.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

don't these catfish things usually have a motive or endgame?

in this case they fooled him into talking about god on the phone for hundreds of hours, then killed the fake girl off for no reason?

truth stranger than fiction, or are we still missing some pieces here?

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

The only explanation is whoever the **** was on the other end of the phone (roniah tuiasosopo cousin?) must of actually fell in love with Te'o.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

but didn't he say he spent 8+ hours on the phone with her while she fell asleep? Where are those calls?

Oh wait, it all is explained by "I lied" but now we're supposed to believe him. **** this guy, I want this story to go away because it doesn't ****ing matter and this piece of **** doesn't deserve any of the attention he has already received.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Is it too much to ask that the interview goes Jerry Springer and Couric turns complete heel and is like "Well, there's someone backstage we think you may want to meet, Lennay come on out here please."

Some people spend thousands of hours roleplaying characters in WoW for no particular reason AND pay for the privilege to do it. It doesn't seem so far-fetched that there are some psychopaths out there who would just get off on pretending to be another person and seeing how badly they could fool people, just for the sport of it. On the Catfish tv show, the perpetrators are basically never getting anything tangible out of it.

This would be the single greatest moment in TV history.

i think i said this before but roniahhs cousin actually had leukemia and spent alot of time in the hospital , think it makes sense she talked to him to kill time and may have actually developed some sort of weird relationship .

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Story actually makes a lot more sense if the stand-in chick did develop a real phone relationship with Te'o. We then don't need to explain why Tuiasosopo spent so much time on the hoax as that doesn't have to be the case anymore. He just kicked it off and then it took on a life of its own.

The girl is probably ugly as sin and couldn't get within 20 feet of a star college football player irl. It makes perfect sense to me that she'd want to live out this fantasy relationship. As someone pointed out earlier people actually pay money to spend hundreds of hours pretending to be a half-elf wizard on the internet. I bet there are girls out there who'd pay to roleplay being the girlfriend of a Notre Dame football player, let alone do it for free.

Well, there you go. It's clearly got to be accurate, as most people keep a spreadsheet of their cell phone records and it's not the sort of thing you could fabricate much later.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

I mean, how awesome would it be if the girl who played Lennay comes out, says I love you, I'm sorry I fooled you but I'm still who I am - our connection was real! Tuiasosopo made me hoax my death because he was jealous because he loves you too. But I want to apologize and I really want to be with you. Please take me back!

The only time I subpoenaed phone records, they were produced in a spread sheet on a disc.

It was possible to just cut and paste from that.

Of course, producing the disk would be more reliable; or at least a true copy with the non-relevant calls redacted.
