Yep. Really looking forward to the breakdown of the gritty details and psychological factors that I assume will ensue. On one hand, him being gay would be an awesome story and great for football etc, on the other hand that's like the most boring explanation possible.

Yeah, it's pretty ridiculous how much impact they've ended up having on shaping the sports news landscape.

And yeah it's utterly ridiculous and frankly unfathomable that this took this long to uncover. No one looked for any evidence of the funeral? Of a student by this name at Stanford? Anything at all? Literally any amount of research by any news outlet at any stage of any story related to her would have quickly turned this up.

I saw "This Manti Te'o" trending and thought Jon Gruden was taking this to a whole other level. But it wasn't meant to be.

I really hope he isn't gay. This story is so much more fun if he is psychotic.

I put a lot on ESPN for this.

This is the network that you'd think would've hunted as deep as possible. To believe they didn't put in a lot of hours to find her friends or family or an obit for a TV visual is nuts. I'm believing they did, found nothing, but decided to just keep running with a good story from the little they had.
