The thing is teo apparently talked for long hours on the phone with her, so it's either an ugly chick or if it's the guy he needed help from a girl. Assuming he wasn't in on it.
Yea. My brother and I said that too, the one on the right of the screen. Really nice.

The show is definitely real. Actors cannot show the type of emotion you see in the show. And I thought the movie was alright, but you have to remember they marketed it as a horror film so I was kind of let down when I saw it. I guess the ending is pretty obvious, but I won't spoil the movie.

Link?

FWIW I question his actual popularity since online dating makes no sense for somebody who is A) In school and B) popular. That's a far more efficient + convenient dating network than anything the Internet may provide.

And even if he was an athlete with decent social standing, that pales in comparison to somebody who has the celebrity status of Te'o. He surely could have most anybody he wants in the ND student body, so why bother with silly online BS?

I'm no psychiatrist or anything but it's an interesting theory
Or he didn't want have to deal with faking the emotional loss of his gf so he killed her off at a time when he was actually grieving.

Which is why the gay theory seems so plausible to me. He has a long distance "girlfriend" which is why he isn't interested in any of the ND girls, and also enables him to flirt/talk to this "girlfriend" all the time without anyone being suspicious (like his teammates).

really could go either way between gay and straight college male who just so happens to be uninterested in sex with hot college females.

ya, that's what i was getting at. i think his range right now is gay, asexual, or sociopath. Maybe 2 of the 3.

4) He gets drafted at worst by Carolina at 14, who figure he can't be much crazier than people who shoot others, do or sell drugs, etc...

I dunno, I think the ending of this isn't going to be as epic as many hope for. The really fun stuff is going to be the locker room talk, and the amazing jokes on the field we'll miss. The other thing is if his father is a giant homophobe, and he felt he had to invent this to keep his dad loving him. That would be pretty messed up too.
Carolina literally drafted a MLB in the first round last year. Why would they do so again?

To 2-7 offsuit, classic picture, hilarious

Dude is obviously gay or tried to build up a story for himself to get a higher profile & draft slot. Either one makes sense to me. For the latter, i don't really recall hearing much about him before he made this story up and his team started winning. Afterwards He had got all the way up to being the potential #1 pick before they got blew out in the bcs championship

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

The most ridiculous thing is that this fullback for the Cardinals comes out and says this Lennay girl is a real person and has met her and has had a relationship with her!! Even throws Polamalu's name into it. This story just gets more and more amazing.
