Re: Manti Teos Dead Girlfriend A Hoax

I'm posting it everywhere, I might as well post it here too. Te'o is gay. This was his beard for his parents. The dude that ran the account is probably his actual boyfriend. When the parents got pushy and wanted to meet her they faked her death. Then the parents started blabbing to the media about all the tragedy their son has had to deal with. At some point Te'o had to just go along with it or come clean, but coming clean would be coming out as gay at Notre Dame, about to enter the NFL, with hardcore Mormon parents. He's 22. That's a lot of weight to carry, so he just went along with it. Now he's proper ****ed.

Well, this story is so bizarre that I wouldn't rule out any explanation. There is no way only a couple of people could have arranged a conspiracy of this proportion.

Notre Dame Statement: Manti Te’o

On Dec. 26, Notre Dame coaches were informed by Manti Te’o and his parents that Manti had been the victim of what appears to be a hoax in which someone using the fictitious name Lennay Kekua apparently ingratiated herself with Manti and then conspired with others to lead him to believe she had tragically died of leukemia. The University immediately initiated an investigation to assist Manti and his family in discovering the motive for and nature of this hoax. While the proper authorities will continue to investigate this troubling matter, this appears to be, at a minimum, a sad and very cruel deception to entertain its perpetrators.

Re: Manti Teos Dead Girlfriend A Hoax

Is it bad that I had no idea about this whole supposed backstory or g/f of Te'o's? Barely watched programs like Gameday or read much about college football this yr. I just tuned in to the games. And never ND. Except the Pitt game. Of course, National title game.


Absurdity of the hoak, Nim's post may be right. Anything is possible. But he has to be involved with it. Not buying that he is a victim. Makes no sense.

Leaving Shrine Game and already getting phone callsh GM's say if the Te'o story is true it will have major impact on his draft grade.

Re: Manti Teos Dead Girlfriend A Hoax

Honestly, I'd buy that Te'o is dumb enough to have an internet relationship with a dude posing as a girl. The problem is that all roads lead back to this Tuiasasopo dude that he is apparently good friends with being the one running the account. Still... he's young and deeply religious, it wouldn't necessarily surprise me if he's dumb and inexperienced enough at life to have fallen for the oldest internet trick in the book.

Re: Manti Teos Dead Girlfriend A Hoax

On a side note, I don't think this should hurt is draft stock all that much. I mean...who cares? Dude can play football, and it's not like he's getting in any trouble. Don't be a fool and let this kid slip way too far and get scooped up by a great team who could really use him, everybody will forget about this in due time. I mean Ray Lewis might have actually MURDERED somebody, being a little crazy doesn't hurt when you play professional football.

Manti Te'o wasn't missing tackles in the National Championship, he was hugging his girlfriend.

Re: Manti Teos Dead Girlfriend A Hoax

This is an incredible story.

How many major news outlets gave significant space to this story? You mean nobody bothered to check if this person actually existed!?!?! What the **** has happened to reporting in this country?

Didn't he say he met her though?

Well, he could have lied about that to cover his shame and embarrassment. Still think he's gay though.
