****. This actually sounds good. Even if he is involved Te'o should say this. America will forgive him and he and Tebow will make a NFL team with like 1.9% virgins.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

How is this for a timeline and a reason for it all.

Teo is gay. He knows he gay. But he doesn't want to come out gay. In 2009, when Teo was a freshman at Notre Dame, he doesn't want his teammates knowing he is gay. So he and his buddy (who may even be Teo's gay lover) come up with this fake gf story to stave off any questions or rumors about why he is never with a girl. So as time goes by and he keeps getting himself more and more into this lie, it gets more elaborate, he and the buddy come up with this story about the gf getting sick (luekimia) to further his Heisman and NFL draft goals and to get him the fame and publicity he needs to achieve that. A month before the MSU game the buddy gets in this car accident, and that gives Teo the idea to have the girl get in one. Finally the media is blowing the story up, and they feel it may be getting too big, so they come up with the story that the girl died. Who knows, the day the grandmother died may have even given them this idea.

But then the media blows the story up even more, and he just goes with it. Burying himself even further until it finally comes out around Christmas.

Thoughts?

Ok, I'm re-convinced. Te'o was in on this. Zero chance he was duped.

Not sure if Colin Cowherd or Jeremy Schaap represents what is worse about ESPN. Think they are both tied in their separate ways.

Lol at him just being extremely naive.

He had a hand in embellishing this gf or someone needs to go to jail.

Being the defensive captain of the football team doesn't mean his social competence extends into the opposite sex.

This is sort of the theory I'm on too. I think him just being that stupid doesn't make sense, but it can start to make sense if he was gay and basically in the WOAT position for a gay man (mormon, Notre Dame, star football player).

I'm not even sure if he has to be in on it for this to hold. He could have just seen it as a way to escape the pressure and kept going with it.

Arizona Cardinals FB Reagan Maui'a. Just saw this on ESPN. This NFL player said she was / is a real person and met her in Samoa before she even knew Manti. Tall, beautiful and athletic.

WTF! I'm really confused.


Are you guys playing a prank on me with this thread.

The thing that bothers me is that this barely extends into the realm of social competence. The story is that they knew each other for THREE YEARS and never once met each other. I mean that's just not even remotely possible for anyone with a central nervous system

I think Schaap is one of the most honest and talented reporters espn has. He on air hammering paterno and psu while the rest of espn was still making excuses.
