I think this is most likely

The quotes from his Dad about her trips to Hawaii are strange. Why would Te'o lie to his parents in that spot? Where was he going when he left the house under the pretense of seeing his girlfriend? What is the motivation for Te'o to not be in on it yet lie about this?

It is completely fine for her to not travel to Hawaii to see him. He lied to his parents about this for some reason when there is no logical explanation if he wasn't involved.

Manti truly is the WOAT boyfriend ever if he never even visited her when she got in a car accident and had leukemia

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

I just hope the sports media catches up for his press conference tomorrow or w/e and actually holds him accountable and doesn't allow this to just blow over as a hoax. It seems like the way it came out there's almost no control by the mainstream media so they will have a hard time trying to cover it up if they even wanted to.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

So tomorrow when he finally has to come out of the closet, how far does his draft stock fall?

The gig is up. The longer he spins it, the worse it will be for him.

Unless you assume he was in on it from the start (which is fine) that interview doesn't prove anything. He said she wrote him a bunch of letters and likely had them set to be delivered before each game. She wrote them up through the Stanford game but since she died prior to all the letters being delivered, it's "kind of creepy".

He could just be completely bull****ting, but if he was getting duped, given the other lengths this guy/guys went to, mailing some letters isn't far fetched at all.

As opposed to every other scenario right now? None of this makes sense.

Also, shouldn't Te'o have produced some of these letters by now?
Yup, going to have to soon

This is the most damning evidence i've seen yet that he was part of it

I think his excuse was she didn't want to meet or something equally dumb. Pretty sure you just fly out and surprise her at that point.

Lol at those letters ever coming to light.

The media frenzy/locker room stuff if Manti is gay would be crazy. Doubt he would ever admit it anyways though.

Uh, that comment was connected only to the possibility that he invented the gf to avoid peer pressure and not have to drink/have sex.

That was just an expansion of what Dominic had said.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

I take back anything I said about this dude being a naive forrest gump. I did know some crazy weird sheltered mormons, but I refuse to believe that he is the dumbest most naive person to ever play college football.

Why do people keep acting like Te'o committed a crime and needs to produce proof of his innocence? What am I missing?

Also, if he was in on it, would ND folks be that senseless to hold a press conference backing him unless they were thorough enough in checking things out?

Mostly just playing devil's advocate here since everyone seems to think he was in on it itt.

He went on national television talking about how his gf died of leukemia and shes actually not a real person.

Also there's times to step back and remark on how surreal this is.

This is one of them

Conveniently. Hopefully some ND teammates come forward with what he said around the times of these incidents.

Has any athlete ever cost themselves more money in a 10 day period like this without either committing a crime or getting injured?
