Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Of course, the gay thing works with that, too. It can also give him years to explain not bringing a girl around -- still grieving, can't love again, etc.

He wanted to believe he was doing wonderful things for her and that it was something special.

How much naivete and how much delusional inventive imagination I don't know, but that'd be what I'd bet on.
Well...

It just doesn't make sense that it's a hoax on Te'o, with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo's involvement.

Manti's friend was the one who asked the real girl for the pic, so either Manti was conned by his friend or he was in on it

The opening line is hugely in favor of the latter being the case

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

And lets say it was just his friend conning him. What's the motive to keep the act up for so long? This goes well beyond pulling a prank on your friend for like a week and then pulling out the rug from him.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Like, if you had put this in the mix of headlines:

Manti Teo's Girlfriend Did Not Exist
Matt Ryan Announces he Doesn't Run Because He Has Lou Gehrig's Disease
Tom Brady Announces He Is Retiring Making AFC Championship Game "Loser Leaves Town" Match With Ray Lewis
Tim Tebow Given 7-Year $100 Million Contract by Philadelphia Eagles
Miguel Cabrera Discovered to be Venezuela's Biggest Cocaine Distributor

And one of those was real... no way would you pick Te'o.

This can't be quoted enough.

Did anyone else notice the guy just taking swigs from a Large Panera Bread Ice Tea? Seemed pretty lackadaisical about this topic.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

The interview with Tuiasosopo will be the most interesting one to come out of this, and that will be the one that determines Te'o's involvement.

I'm glad Manti Te'o's fake dead girlfriend isn't around to see this.

The Manti Te'o story is the most confusing boyfriend-girlfriend situation since Jan Brady and George Glass. Bizarre.
