It also makes no sense for Te'o to be behind this sort of thing since the amount of money he supposedly got paid to do the interview may very well be less than the amount he loses by sliding in the draft.
Well I agree with this in part. This started well before Te'o got launched as a Heisman candidate and possibly a 1st round pick... I'll agree with that. But, he wasn't a nobody, he was an NFL prospect at the time and the defensive captain of a Notre Dame football team that gets a ton of exposure. If we are talking the winter off season of 2012 everyone knew he was going pro, with or without this story. The problem is there is no accurate timeline of when contact occurred, and if we could even trust the information provided.

I'm definitely not arguing Te'o being behind this from the start. Idk where you got that from. I was merely pointing out that he is now capitalizing on the situation. That seems to be what all this jockeying for interviews is, and why RT would want all the blame now.

A lot of people were struggling to find a motive earlier itt and I offered this as a possibility. Idk what to believe anymore, but Tuiasosopo is about to get paid that's all I know for sure. He's also gonna have a hard time going anywhere in public for 20 years. Fun times.

lol how long you think his face will stay recognizable to anyone that followed this story? And, he can forget about showing ID or a credit card... unless he is planning on changing his name. Not a bad idea.

I would say like 2 years tops.

I already stopped caring about this story and it just happened.

Name change is 100% to happen.

I was hoping this would happen. I remember the schmoyoho guys saying a few years back that Katie Couric has one of the best voices to autotune. It has something to do with her tone and inflection.

That and I find their songs catchy as hell.

Guess it shouldn't be a surprise but PFT reporting that one reason Te'o was slow to come forward with the story is that he was trying to lock down endorsement deals before it broke

I don't care that she's 55 years old. Katie Couric is hot. I could listen to her autotuned voice forever.

I've also got a serious crush on the girl who laughs when Te'o says he's not gay.

After the natty game?

* Cream cheese that gets spread out easily?
* A rug brand that can take an endless beating?
* maybe a shoe deal where he runs from the bulls in Pamplona?
* icyhot sleave?

He could appear in a maxipad commercial as the "leading competitor's product" that fails to control heavy flow

Pretty sure this would trigger some sort of awkward fetish for Te'o and Tuisaipopopopo.

You guys are making me think of Dawson's Creek when Dawson admitted to having a huge crush on Katie Couric and walking his dog to her in the morning to Joey.

(Walking dog = jerking it)

Haven't followed this story in a while, is there a comprehensive list of cliffs as to what's happened in the latter stages of this? Last updated OP seems to be from over a week ago.

We're all waiting on Tuiasasopo showing up on Dr Phil for a two parter on Thurs/Fri. Gotta be good if they managed to do two hours

It is super weird to me that we have to wait for these interviews. I don't want to see potentially edited material. Plus, it's 2013, people are already getting bored of this story. Ray Ray allegations, A-rod lols and the Super Bowl are taking over and this **** seems so long ago now.

The whole thing is just insane as ever, but I am beginning to doubt that we will ever fully understand just what the **** happened here.

Maybe in five years after Te'o scrubs out of the NFL and writes a book about it.

Or sooner, when Roniah Tuiasosopo writes a book about it, but I wouldn't expect that to explain all the weird stuff from Te'o side.

I think this story is on its final legs so pushing out this interview is a way to try and keep it relevant for as long as possible continuously since it broke. Once it dies down imo it will never be much more than a bottom line update, or a 20 sec short on sportcenter for anything that isn't earth shattering.

There's not much that can be sleuthed at this point. The core question left, basically, was Tuiasosopo a lone catfisher, can only be answered by Tuiasosopo or whoever else was involved. If none of them say anything and Tuiasosopo is willing to go to the mat with the "I did it all myself" story, then that's how it's gonna go down. Game is basically over.
