The sicker thing is by covering this up until after the bcs game, how much money people would have saved or won for that matter if they came out with this before the game. I wanted ND to win but if i found out about this before the game, i would have definitely switched sides to alabama

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

If this really was a hoax, why doesn't Te'o just release his phone records to show that he really was talking to someone every night?

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

I've never seen Catfish but if it's an MTV Reality show that means it's at least 95% fictional and staged.

I know this type of thing was a lot more common when the internet was "new" to people. But this isn't 1997 anymore, people are way more savy, or at least should be. Te'o has lived basically his whole life in the internet age. We live in the age of digital cameras, Facebook, facetime, Skype, etc. It's basically impossible to legitimately pull off a deception of this magnitude for an extended period of time without the other party being in willful denial.

For example I had a friend who knew this girl, was quite overweight, like 300+ lb who mostly just stayed at home, never had a boyfriend, that sort of thing, got into an "online relationship" with a solider deployed to Iraq. It went on for months, and naturally she began sending him ****, like ipads, cash, etc. Obviously the guy wasn't real and it was just a big scam. Somone like THAT strikes me as someone who could willfully convince themselves to overlook the stupidity of it all.

Te'o does not strike me as that sort, the dude is a star football player, if he wanted a girlfriend he could been banging ugly Notre Dame broads by the dozen. He also seems normal enough in interviews and such.

My gut is that Te'o was in on it, probably never intended it to go to the level it did, just spiraled out of control and his lies had to keep getting bigger.

Maybe they were good actors?

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

I know the Kicker & Punter of whatever NFL team Te'o goes to will be happy for a while, since Manti will likely be the butt of jokes in that locker room for a good amount of time.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

So a college kid pulled a prank - ok a little weird, but a lot better than stealing, fighting, doing drugs, etc right?

I can't believe an NFL team would care much about this unless he is shown to be really unstable somehow.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Nice article from an ND student

http://collegespun.com/big-east/notr...x#.UPgusmfaJZj

Cliffs:

- Manti was legit duped
- teammates questioned Manti about his girlfriend, thought he embellished to the media, didn't fully support him

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

ND jumped quicker to defend T'eo yesterday than they did to react to recent kids dying in dangerous windy conditions on scissor lifts and students who accused football players of rape. Moral high ground, ladies and gentlemen.
