Also if you SE morons aren't following Richard Deitsch on twitter, then god help your soul. He's the mainstream national writer embodiment of SE. Amazing stuff.

I like how Schaap would occasionally pause and say "I know this sounds unbelievable"

How often do teams leak stuff out of those interviews? I know they are supposed to be confidential but man I bet this stuff starts coming out.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Manti's uncle catches Tuiasosopo in a huge lie and doesn't tell him. He instead tells his dad who tells no one.

come on

What a joke that was. Te'o probably never does another public interview on the topic either

For sure

I'm guessing we'll know most everything by then anyway though.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

If he is really completely innocent and was duped the entire way without any embellishment, this has to drop him out of the first round.

Can't imagine somebody this dumb, naive, and gullible being the captain of an NFL defense.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

the best part for me is where sfap starts off telling us that te'o "answered every question" so that it sounds credible before revealing that he asked no interesting questions whatsoever.

for the record, were you in on it? loooool

I like how he used it as an excuse for his performance in the title game.

Yeah, I wonder how much of this is just going to be a bidding war between Te'o's camp and any number of news organizations for Ronaiah Tuiasosopo's story.

I guess Catfishing DOES pay!

I'm just holding out hope that that was simply a rushed presentation so it was crap and there's a lot more to come.

If he's a narcissist like the thread says then Teo won't get drafted at all. The NFL surely wouldn't allow in someone like that.

Well, frankly, if he wasn't innocent, then he should drop out of the first round, too. ****, man, Vontaze Burfict had first round talent and went undrafted because he was a head case. And he has nothing on Te'o, no matter how this story ends up being sliced.

What. The. Actual. ****.

Every time I think we're done, something else happens. This is way better than Christmas. This has surpassed Tonya Harding in terms of WTFness. I'm leaving the country for a week this Sunday and I'll have no Internet access. I'm majorly bummed about this.
