My biggest question is how, in 2013, does someone get away with this for that long. JOURNALISM FAIL!

In this city I think this is the majority. Some don't care enough about college football to even read up on. They're more pissed about the Giants not making the playoffs.
And the rest are just lazy and will take what ESPN/Sports Illustrated/CBS feed them over a site like deadspin.
I work with a lot of Ivy League and other prestigious School alums that don't have the same college football love we do. Very intelligent people but even they don't care enough to look into it. While the alum that went to college football schools know damn well this guy was not "duped"

It was always kind of weird that he shared that. Like an internet girlfriend who he only dated for four months. Just talk about your grandma and keep the other stuff to yourself.

The only way this week could get any worse for American sports heros is if we find out Lennay Kekua was actually Tim Tebow.

For example:

(Jan 7) "@jayrahz: I wonder if the real Lennay Kekua is watching the game.. Cause I know the fake one that didn't die is not watching over the Irish! #Ronaiah"

Ronaiah being the first name of the guy who is supposedly responsible for the fake Lennay account. This whole thing is so ridiculous and crazy.


Edit: link for a summary of the mentioned tweets: http://www.buzzfeed.com/jpmoore/two-...o-fake-girlfri

How would 2 people joking about whether his gf was real or not prove he was duped?

So we've had the hit of the year and the story of the year. What the hell are we supposed to do for the next 11.5 months?

The supposed "girlfriend" will be speaking publicly. Will it be a virtual press conference? As in, "I do not exist, but if I did exist, this is what I would say"?

ND's checkbook ensures this will never happen. Nothing personal, but the Catholic Church has been know to play a little fast and loose with facts in the past.

It was a publicity stunt. He knew she wasn't real and he was in on it the whole time.

Teo will have to go on Oprah and tell all if he wants to begin to clear his name.
Somebody more clever than I am needs to start a thread of the one line zingers.
I bet somebody already has book rights and a movie is being considered.
Who will play Manti?
