Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

I thought the story was coming to a close, but this just gave it rocket fuel.

Now I do feel bad for him.

Love of his life was a guy friend who pretended to be a girl.

How do you recover from that?

Maybe that page wasn't supposed to go live until after the interview aired?
Hah, probably.

It got massively retweeted everywhere. Could have crashed the server too.

I wish I had photoshop skills, but this needs Te'o and his friend's heads real bad.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

so ronniah pretended to be a girl, when really te'o knew the whole time it was a dude?

plus i was thinking...

110 hr-long phone calls made

mid may - mid september = 4 months = 120 days

+

1,000 calls total = 890 other calls

so on average they were speaking ~8 times/day w/one of the calls very often being over an hour? seems no one in the te'o camp is good at basic math. no two human beings could have possibly near the amount of stuff needed to carry on that many conversations over that time span.

Supposedly they had some really long calls. Like 8 hours or something. Eats up the time quickly.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

I love how Deadspin tries to cover up the fact that they ripped this and rehosted it as "we're just trying to help because Couric's site keeps going down" as opposed to the obvious "they posted it in error but too bad, we snagged them and plan on taking all the traffic now"

that would be reasonable, except the ESPN graphic said 110 calls were made that were over an hr, not 110 hrs spoken.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh - Getting Real Creepy Real Quick

Reading the headlines for Teo stories at lunch are great.

When I saw "Teo was talking to Man entire time" I spit my drink everywhere.

I posted this the morning after the story broke. I think with today's news that Tuiasosopo was on the other end feigning Lennay's voice more or less confirms the above.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh - Getting Real Creepy Real Quick

Tuiasosopo has been odds-on to be gay from the beginning, not sure there are any "latent" homoerotic desires. The Te'o-is-secretly-gay theory pretty much presupposes Tuiasosopo's homosexuality, for example.

Alabama got early word on the story and it explains why they were so good at eluding attempted tackles by Te'o; they were afraid of being caught by teh gay.
