Yup. No way the media wasn't at least very suspicious.

Meh, I think ND's play here is to pretend that they buy that it was a hoax even if they know better. They may suck at everything else but they are expert at covering **** up.

Also, the more I think about it, the less likely it is that Te'o and Tuiasosopo were covering for a homosexual relationship, because in that case it makes no sense to kill her.
Yeah this, except for the last part. He both provided all these pictures of her, and claimed he'd met her face to face. Both can't be true.

Yeah if someone is starting to close in on the story then you have to kill her off.

You could just 'break up', that would also do the trick without turning a massive public hoax

Playing football through a breakup doesn't generate award-winning sympathy, though.

Re: Manti Teo: ruh roh

I mean best best best case scenario here for him is that he did get into some kind of long-distance online relationship with "Lennay" as part of a hoax, but then lied to the media about ever having met her (and obviously oversold the degree to which she was his "girlfriend").

And also, that his parents were in on the lie.

This story is literally figuratively blowing my mind.

I cannot even process how

pathetic

this thing is. Kudos to deadspin, major kudos. Jesus, how does literally no other news source in the country find this **** out? There's a legit chance that minus deadspin, nobody would have ever known. wtf.
