Its pretty much a sitcom episode about lying

That's what I thought... except Teo has tweeted at this account in the past. It's possible they cleaned it out or something? Or maybe he was just tweeting @[hername]

If the hoax narrative doesn't work, what is the likely next step or excuse? Personality disorder?

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Did Notre Dame really think that announcing they knew about this a few weeks ago and launched an investigation already was going to make them seem more legit?

Forgot about the serious car accident BEFORE finding out she had cancer. Put it at 1% he is the most gullible person on planet Earth.

I know LOL Notre Dame and all but hard to believe they didn't follow up on this whatsoever with the authorities or NCAA.

The account was private for large parts of its existence per the Deadspin report.

I'll lay -100000 that twitter was hacked.

And this whole thing would make a great plot for a seinfeld episode, with George playing the role of te'o, kramer as tuiasosopo, and elaine as lennay

When we hear about events from 2009, are those articles from then or articles from now with Te'o talking about 2009?

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Just checking the Notre Dame boards, the vast majority of their fans seem to know he was in on it, in fact several Notre Dame players are coming out saying Te'o lied and stuff. Basically they said he lied but blame the media for blowing it up bigger, etc.

Te'o and ND really has taken a ridiculous embarassing situation and make it orders of magnitude worse.

He should have just immediately gone full Jimmy Swaggart and begged crying forgiveness and claimed he lied, panicked, was scared, all that jazz. He's gonna have to do that eventually.

ND will then look really stupid for standing up for him so hard. I mean, I know they don't want to pile on, but they don't have to, they should just be non-commital "We are seeking to find the facts, blah blah blah"

Jerry: "So you just left your girlfriend in Hawaii?"
George: "Don't you get it Jerry? I MADE HER UP!"
Jerry: "You made her up?"
George: "I MADE HER UP!"
Jerry: "But why?"
George: "I was nervous, everyone at the luau was talking about their wives and girlfriends, I had to say something. Its like middle school all over again."
