He'll probably just keep feeding BS like, "That's in the past, I'm concentrating on the future and preparing for the NFL draft" while the internet continues to LOL at him

They're probably in some corporate meeting room trying to come up with a way to take credit for the story as we speak.

Re: Manti Teo: ruh roh

How'd he find out she died? A facebook post? Obviously she didn't call to tell him. Did her "mom" call him? Or did she fake the death over the phone.

This is amazing. I can't imagine how much money Lance Armstrong payed the writers of this to release it right after his confession.

Re: Manti Teo: ruh roh

Remember this dumb ass?



He used the same excuse initially after his lie fell apart. He said he had been the victim of some hoax by someone he thought was in touch with the schools and what not.

Te'o doing the same crap.

Notre Dame apparently knew on Dec 26th, how convenient they didn't publicly disclose it or clear things up until after the championship game was over, wouldn't want the nataional broadcast to make fun of your lying ass players.

Te'o's story has more holes than the ND defense.

First story to Brian Kelly should be how long has known that his star player is a lying sack of crap.

ESPN pissing me off right now.

Even if he was the one being hoaxed, he still lied over and over and over again.

lol, my point isn't that I think he fabricated it -- it's that there's a ton of concrete information out there that proves he fabricated it.

Unless he can come up with an actual, physical female impostor who was leading him on, he's 100% backed into a corner.

Not incompetence, willful ignorance. They never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

Getting into it with someone on facebook trying to defend Teo. He thinks it's a simple "catfish" scenario.
