That doesnt even make sense. Why invent a girlfriend and then kill her off? Why have her die when he could just say, I haven't heard from her lately. Because it was an elaborate scheme for attention. If he was gay he would just say he doesn't have a girlfriend.

I don't think he is gay, but I also don't believe everything that student said. What makes that student so credible?

I agree with this. I don't think him being gay is the reason behind this. He could have just said he broke up with her or they stopped talking.

My new theory: He was lying about his fake relationship that he thought was with a real person. That's some Charlie Kaufman sh*+^.

Why would a guy he knows pretend to be a girl, create fake social media accounts to interact with him, get a girl to talk to him on the phone, all for a prank? That is his story. Or if he made it all up, why tell the coaches to start with? Was someone actually investigating? ESPN guys as well as everyone else bit it hook, line, and sinker, they weren't asking questions, so who else was.

Look I don't know what went on here, but no explanation he has given passes the smell test. That post I quoted earlier actually sounds plausible. One thing we probably all agree on, his explanation just doesn't make sense.

Sure this was a f'd up thing to do, but the NFL only cares if you can play. His leadership qualities are definitely in question, but he's not going to be drafted to automatically take hold of the locker room. Some veteran/ coach (depending on who drafts him) will whip him in line.
It's one thing to spoke pot, have attitude issues, or even get in trouble.

It's another to be crazy, incredibly naive and stupid, and a liar. You can make bad choices but this is a different level. Now maybe meeting and talking to the guy will help ease some concerns but you can't be happy with any of us.

These aren't just poor decisions. These are red flags about someone's mental capacity. Again, once he talks to NFL teams it may help him but initial impressions from this incident aren't good. I'd much rather take a guy who smokes pot or gets in trouble than deal with character issues like this.

Why would they? That would hurt his character even more to have these girls claiming he hooked up with them with he was "dating" this online girl.

Read the latest details from the SI article detailing the conversations. I understand being naive but he is incredibly stupid to believe the stuff he said. It doesn't even make sense.

And two days AFTER he found out about the 'hoax', he is still telling people how he hates that cancer killed his girlfriend.

This is more than him just being a liar.

I guess we can agree to disagree here.
I think the guy is just a liar, Wanted everything to be about him and used this made up story to gain more media attention.


I think in the end when NFL GMs to him his crapy combine performance will hurt him more than this.
I think he'll still be a first round pick.

I was a very naive kid growing up so I get that part. However, you can't be that stupid. She died at age 22. By that time, she had graduated from Stanford, taught kids at New Zealand, worked for the construction company, and spent 8 months in the hospital. Who can do all of that by the time they are 22? Doogie Howser?

So if we believe it is a hoax, he is beyond naive. No one can be that stupid. And again, I think it is more than that. It's a bit twisted. Stupid decisions by athletes and twisted are two different levels for me.

I just see this as being very different than other cases with players. That's all I'm saying. Who knows how it will really affect his draft status until it all plays out.

Naive? Where did I say he was Naive?
I believe he knew about this all along.
Maybe someone duped him for a short time, but I believe he was behind this fully. That he created it for his own personal gain.
Honestly it just seems like a selfish way to get the media on him. Sure a bit more extreme than what we see in the NFL, but I don't think NFL teams are going to draft this guy to be a leader from Day 1

From the looks of posts I feel like some people are thinking this would kill his NFL dreams totally or put him as a late round pick. I don't believe that.
Sure he'll probably go out of the top 10 (I think he'll do bad at the combine)
But I still think a team takes him in the first.

Default Re: Manti Te'o's dead girlfriend is a hoax

Nothing naive about Te'o...He us a publicity hound that crossed way over the line....
Manti didn't get catfished...Notre Dame and all the fans that stood behind him did....I never believed the story when it was first reported back in sept...Reminded me too much of the "win one for the gipper" crap....Te'o is a scam artist...His hyper-emotional hoax generated a block of sympathy votes that earned him runner up for the heisman and won him numerous awards that any one with an iq above 70 knows should have gone to Jedeveon Clowney and Jarvis Jones....If this hoax had been perpetrated at any other school, the press would have tarpedoed it months ago!!
