ND FB star Te'o , made up story of dead gf. 1/16/2013 3:59PM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post
ESPN now reporting that Manti Te'o made up the whole story of a dead girlfriend.
There is no record of a girlfriend, and suspicion came out when no one heard of her until she was dead.

This was a sad story squeezed for everything during the ND undefeated season and Te'o's run for the Heisman.

Thoughts?

Notre Dame's response

This doesn't add up at all. Te'o would have to be monumentally stupid to fall for a prank like this.

If this is true, then Manti completely disgraced the ideals of the University of Notre Dame, and I am deeply upset.

Pretty sure they had fund raisers after this fake death too. Crazy story.

Lance gotta be a happy man right now. This will take a load of heat off him for the next few days, even with the interview coming out.

My bets is that this was perpetrated by Chip Kelly to distract the media from his leaving of Oregon.

Also, I think we might need Oprah do a little interview with Te'o now.

Manti hooks up with tons of chicks. That's widely known if you live in South Bend. He was hooking up with chicks before this girl "died."

I love ND, but the whole Manti is holier than thou thing is a joke. He is no different than anyother football player. Probably taking PEDs too.

Dont believe everything you see on TV.

Disgrace! I don't understand why he would do this. He was already a great player, the most popular on ND, one of the best in college football. Did he really have to risk it just to add a little more "adversity"?

That's what I'm thinking, too. If so, it's probably the worst publicity stunt ever. His statement doesn't help his cause either as he stated earlier that he visited her in person. Personally, I think he was covering up a relationship through the help of his cousin. The narrative he tried to perpetuate spiraled out of control and now he's in full-on damage control. If he really wanted to mitigate the damage, he'd be better off just coming out and saying what he was hiding.

ha ha ---ND sucks even more.

He should be a hero @ LR, pulling off the fake girlfriend thing so well. A girlfriend that ran through his arm tackles of love.

Smart enough to stay eligible at Notre Dame it seems.

My first reaction is that this has to be a cover up for Te'o being gay.



That explains his anger issues. He's mad he's gay. lol

Mangayo. So, the fake dead girlfriend was his beard. Makes sense to me, very very gay.

One Heisman finalist makes up a fake girlfriend.
Another didn't kiss his wife until they were married.

So is anyone buying Notre Dame's lame ass story?

Seems extremely unlikely that Manti wasn't in on it.
