He gets tons of tail and is probably banging the better looking girls on the show. Shame on him if he didn't get with Trina the Natural.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

well, if it is a hoax that he was not in on, the hoaxer should be checked into a mental institution immediately. they talked until they fell asleep and left their phones on until they woke up the next morning? that's just crazy if it is a hoax that he was not in on.

The upside of killing off the fake girlfriend instead of just breaking up (from Teo's POV) is that it buys a pretty huge amount of time for people to not question why he's not with women. Especially if he keeps selling that she was the love of his life and all this stuff.

EDIT: Plus permanently getting rid of the "girl" obv.

You missed the sweeping under the rug part. 2 is the opposite of sweeping it under the rug.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

I remember hearing on a cop show once "We just need to prove that you're a criminal, not that you're a smart criminal."


That's the way I feel about Te'o. We just need to know he's a ****ing liar (which we do) and shouldn't get caught up in trying to figure out why his lies were stupid and unnecessary.

This is exactly my thinking. It seems impossible for someone to have the time, skill and self-discipline to make this work.

I guess the idea is that people will stop trying to talk to the girl if he says that she's dead.

Te'o is both gay and naive imo.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Pretty sure nobody has brought this up yet. But, since it's concrete that he never met his GF in IRL now. How many pics did he get to go off of? If he didn't get a whole slew of other pics over that amount of time then that's even worse for Te'o, and pretty easy to verify. And, if not all the pics are HS classmate, and some are Kekua or someone different... how do you not notice the difference? He also refused to provide more pics of her which leads me to believe he didn't have very many that hadn't already been used.

A) Tuiasosopo pic collected a ton of photos from former HS classmate and sent them to Te'o. B) Tuiasosopo and Kekua sent a mixture of pics, and Te'o doesn't notice the difference. C) Tuiasosopo sends a few pics, and Te'o goes all mormon. D) Tuiasosopo and Te'o just use the pics and hope the girl doesn't find out.

By the way, how the hell does the HS classmate not find out until now??? Nobody in her entire life notices her face plastered all over the media as Teo's GF that died of Leukemia? Amazing. I'm so confused, all I learned was how to spell Tuiasosopo quickly today.

Why? I want it to be 100% exposed how stupid and unnecessary his lies were. Not only does this fraud need to be completely exposed, but maybe we can teach our youth a little lesson about honesty, integrity, and not being complete morons

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

So...
Manti had a gf he never met or saw on video--even after severe car accident and cancer diagnosis.
She stood him up every time they were in the same state.
Phone calls almost every day.
Letters before every game.
Ronaiah's car accident lines up pretty well with Lennays.
Lennay died on the same day as his grandma.
100% victim

His gf having cancer came to light before the season right? Think it was the reason he initially gave for her not visiting. Seems his family was putting pressure on him to meet her and prob saw the grief over his grandma's passing as the perfect opportunity for her to pass.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Brian Kelly may or may not have killed a student assistant.
He may or may not have gotten off his starting QB who beat up a police officer.
He may or may not have covered up a rape that led to a co-ed killing herself.

He may or may not have found out a secret about Te'o and concocted this whole story as a cover?

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Doesn't the fact that 'sopo asked the Reba girl to take a pic holding a sign with a unique message signal that at some point someone had to be asking for more proof of her being the girl she said she was in her pics? Who could have been asking that question other than Te'o?
