Haven't kept up for a while, but now think Teo's draft status will get affected by this. Usually all it takes is one team out of 32 to believe in you, but here that team is going to have to look past the incredibly glaring creepy gay overtones of lovey-dovey talking with a *man* for thousands of hours as the best-case spin scenario you were able to put out. I mean there are advocates and detractors in every war room but who the hell wants to risk their career on someone who's gone out of his way to identify himself as a complete dupe mental defective...best case?

Picturing NFL guys' reaction:
*Stab someone to death--people always try to start **** with me in clubs, too.
*Rapistberger--damn hoes always lyin'.
*Spend thousands of hours talking on the phone with a HS friend who's pretending to be a woman and you fall in love with him--DO NOT WANT.

It's not that strange for people to want to confirm their suspicions.

I guess it's not so easy getting laid at a Catholic University like Notre Dame? This doesn't sound good for recruiting.
This subject has come up here and other places. It has less to do with this taking place at Notre Dame as it does that Te'o is a devout Mormon. He doesn't engage in casual, premarital sex the way the stereotypical BMOC would. One of the linked articles even suggests that the online GF thing is somewhat common among Mormon boys and men for this reason.

Of course,the opposing argument is that's all cover. The way this story has folded or unfolded, we'll never know.

IANAM but I have never understood this particular narrative. Mormons go on dates right? He was at a Catholic school ffs, surely there are plenty of girls there that are ok with dating without having sex.

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

Ok so that was Tui on the phone voicemails? Going into it knowing that it was a man, made that chick sound kinda not chick-ly. Biased tho...I don't want this story to ever stop. Gonna watch my first episode of Catfish now, seriously.

You are correct that it wouldn't be the same.

Whether or not he cheated on his SAT's is a MUCH less interesting topic.

Bad example really, but thanks for trying. Better luck next time.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

The gay questions must have been mounting for CAA to put these voicemails out, when they were better off staying quiet. Probably worried about anything Tuiasosopo might come out and say when he "tells his side".

Also, is it just me or is that voice not super questionable? That does not sound like any female voice I've ever heard, and I'd be questioning that thing from the very beginning. Are we suppose to believe the guy never dropped voice?... Gawd Te'o is ******ed and a pos embellisher/exaggerater on top of it. There is no way this guy garners respect on any NFL team as a leader of men.

OK, so now Te'o should change his story from meeting her at the Stanford game to he met her at a club down in old SoHo

Yeah, I mean I went into it knowing it was a man, but definitely sounded like if a friend of mine was pranking me pretending to be a chick we knew. Yada yada confirmation bias, but would bet a lot Manti's gay and it's gonna come out.

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

Of course Manti could get any girl he wanted at ND. It is also confirmed that he has dated (is still dating?) another girl after Lennay (total smokeshow btw). Why he decided to get so close to a girl he had never met in person is unknown, but Manti claims it was because Lennay was religious, Samoan, and hit the right buttons with him and stuff.

ND has great talent, but, not as fast as the SEC.
