Oh, and the thread title is merely a shortened version of the article title. I don't know whether the story is true or not.

Out of curiosity, why are you so willing to give him the benefit of the doubt? The burden of proof is definitely on him at this point.

Also, I agree with whoever mentioned that this could have started as a cover story for Te'o's sexuality. If that's the case, it is deeply, deeply sad that he had to go to such lengths and felt so much pressure to hide. Unfortunately not surprising, though.

Still say he needs to give back the awards. Te'o is a scrub.

A lot of sources would have to be wrong for this to story to be untrue - but we'll see.

Agreed. Sad that the culture of sports and football wouldn't just let him be himself (if that's the case). But he also bears tremendous personal responsibility as well.

And he should give back all the awards. He didn't deserve them for on the field play and now he certainly doesn't deserve them for off the field conduct. A big step in image rehab would be giving them back. Can you imagine if he'd won the Heisman, been trucked in the NC game, and then this? Good god.

The interview with him about it (I think it was on Gameday) if it was all fake the man deserves an Oscar.

Did he reference spending time w/ her in the interview? Seeing her personally? because the ND statement just released would contradict all of that, claiming he was "the victim". So unless there was an actual girl actually pretending to be this other person that was physically interacting w/ Teo, that doesn't hold water.

Can you imagine the questions he's going to answer from GMs and Coaches? His draft stock was already hurting from the BCS game.

Quote:
The South Bend Tribune wrote an article describing the young couple's fairytale meeting—she, a Stanford student; he, a Notre Dame star—after a football game outside Palo Alto.

Nov. 28, 2009: Te'o and Kekua meet after Stanford's 45-38 victory over Notre Dame in Palo Alto, according to the South Bend Tribune: "Their stares got pleasantly tangled, then Manti Te'o extended his hand to the stranger with a warm smile and soulful eyes." Kekua, a Stanford student, swaps phone numbers with Te'o.

It was around this time that Te'o's Heisman campaign began in earnest, aided in part by the South Bend Tribune.
