Also, if you've been known someone for 3 years, with at least 6 months being in an exclusive relationship at least to you, and they were about to DIE OF ****ING CANCER there is no way you don't try to meet her finally. Just don't buy it. No explanation. He could have flown to California on the weekend of Sept 29, 2012 as ND was on a bye week. Makes zero sense.
so much sense in this post.

It's definitely something to do with Tuiasosopo actually being in a car accident around that time. Honestly, might be the best supporting evidence they were gay, since he obviously would actually be distraught in that case and need an excuse for his feelings.

We probably should have all gotten suspicious when she had been in a car crash AND then was diagnosed with leukemia.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Ya seriously, "love of my life, most beatuiful person ever," she was in a horrible car accident and is dying of cancer, make no effort to ya know, meet her before she dies

I'm still of the opinion 99.99% chance he's a major player in the fraud and .01% chance he's the dumbest, most social awkward person on the entire planet.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Why the **** would a top-grade college football player have, let alone create an online girlfriend? The guy could **** any girl in Notre Dame at any time.

Gotta be gay. Props to the Keyzer Soze-esque scheme set up by the fake girlfriend though.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

I'm about to go to bed, so for preservation purposes as of right now I think the possibilities go in this order:

Gay, in on it, snowballs out of control > Completely innocent > Straight, in on it, wanted PR for Heisman > Some other oddball scenarios.

That was one of the more interesting theories I heard, from a mental health professional even: Manti had trouble dealing with the death of his grandmother and needed more attention/sympathy/whatever to help cope, so he fabricated the death of his fake girlfriend in order to gain even more sympathy, which helped him cope.

I'm no psychiatrist or anything but it's an interesting theory

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

The timing of the 2 deaths now makes me believe he's in on it, unless like someone said the person or people involved truly despised Te'o and wanted to try and kick him when he was down.

Grandma dies and then your GF back to back, America eats that story up 8 days of the week. If he was looking for the sympathy push he sure as hell got it.

being Mormon is enough to explain not having a real girlfriend, and possibly enough to explain naivety / being duped here. But I just think there's too much other stuff that doesn't add up.

Does he ever put a date to the car crash? 'Sopo is confirmed to have had a serious car accident around the same time or is this just speculation?

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Maybe Ronaiah is gay, and has faked being a woman on the phone for the last few years, carrying on a 'relationship' with Manti.

Manti could have met the real Lennay once, the first time, then Ronaiah contacts Manti AS Lennay, and carried on from there ... ?

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Sooooo, he's so Gump that he fell for this hoax conducted by a boyhood buddy for 3-4 years that included nightly phone convos and repeatedly getting stood up, but cynical enough to lie about them meeting many times in Hawaii.

Yeah, I'm sticking to my "make people not think I'm gay" theory.
