Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

If I'm Manti...this is what I think I'd say.

First off talk about how religious I am, maybe say I wasn't very experienced with girls, talk about being super busy with football on campus. A girlfriend online was an easy way to talk to girls given my time limitations. Say you had this online relationship for a while, then realized it was a hoax somehow. Say I wanted to stop the lie, but everyone kept asking about it, and it all spiraled out of control and I didn't know how to stop it without embarrassing myself or becoming an issue for the team. I never thought it would end up being this big of a deal, I'm so embarrassed for myself, I'm sorry to the team and the people who think I lied to them, go Notre Dame. Thanks.

I mean he might as well come out as gay even if he isn't at this point, can't be worse than people just thinking he is a psychopath

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

No biggie, I had this girlfriend in Canada when I was in high school, but she died when she stumbled on the runway and the weight of her big natural boobs (that I totally touched btw) made her fall off

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

No way in hell he didn't know what was going on or was victim of a hoax. That doesn't happen in real life.


I met a chick on the Internet a few years back and once she asked for my CC # I knew right away it was a scam.

Ok, maybe 30 days later but the point I EVENTUALLY FIGURED IT OUT.

The Deadspin article is doing a great job of pointing out all the inconsistencies (a little down the page)

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Statistically impossible that two of the biggest football stars of the last decade remained celibate throughout college. Manti is the fraud. Tebow4life.

Hopefully people in his life don't leave him alone. If this is a mountain of lies this kid should be on suicide watch.

I really hope this kid was just absurdly naive.

He probably tried but Tebow slipped the tackle.

I saw earlier today that Te'o declined an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Can anyone here actually confirm that he was invited?

To be fair, Manti probably never thought he'd have to face national media coverage at Notre Dame

When you're isolated in the middle of the ocean and you choose to go to a boring Indiana school who hasn't been good at football in 20 years, I can see how he would be fooled!

It really was a weirdly perfect storm. You make up a little story in week 2 about your fake dead girlfriend, and against all odds you end up going undefeated and finishing in second place in the Heisman voting, meaning that it never goes away. The real villain is obviously the Pitt kicker

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

I mean you can't sum things up much better than this:

@DanWetzel
Notre Dame private investigators 100 percent sure T'eo wasn't in on it. Deadspin unnamed source is "80 percent" sure he was
