This shit is amazing. College football, man.
This is Millies got a dick, Everlys is a cross dresser message board material meets RL. WTF truly describes this.
Wow this shit is straight from FoH/Rerolled haha.
From the ND Football Facebook.
https://www.facebook.com/NDFootball/...53537038009180Notre 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.

Te'o wasn't missing tackles in the title game, he was hugging his invisble girlfriend.
^^ What a load of shit. So she was his girlfriend for a year and he never fucking met her in person? Yeah fucking right. There's a lot more going on than this, sounds like his shit got found out in December and they gave some BS story to the school in a panic.
Yeah that press release is 100% bullshit.2010-2011: Te'o and Kekua are friends. "She was gifted in music, multi-lingual, had dreams grounded in reality and the talent to catch up to them" (South Bend Tribune). "They started out as just friends," Te'o's father, Brian, told the Tribune in October 2012. "Every once in a while, she would travel to Hawaii, and that happened to be the time Manti was home, so he would meet with her there."

The SEC: Real Football. Real Girlfriends
Maybe he's gay and/or crazy and fabricated the entire deal and then had to kill her off when he started getting too much national attention.
Probably met her in an AOL chat room and then found out it was a 47 year old guy and then told all his friends that she died to avoid ridicule.
Right now Lance Armstrong is saying "This is working out better than I had hoped".
This explains him shitting up the National Title Game. Didn't have the spirit of his dead gf to power him.
One would think a college football superstar would get all the pussy he wants and not have to resort to invisible e-girlfriends, leave that to sheltered nerds like us.
Imagine if he had won the Heisman.
Also agree that he must be gay...
Notre Dame having a press conference now on ESPN News.
Not a good sign when you say you have to explain what you knew and when you knew it.
I cannot believe this AD is backing Te'o. There is no way he was a victim in all of this.
So this is some kind of "Catfish" game/show? What?
This will all blow over once he meets a chick this summer, you wont get to meet her because she lives in Canada.
Maybe he'll go wrestle in Japan ...

I feel like I just stumbled onto the Grobbee thread...in real life.
This is really, really disappointing. Especially so because he was promoted as such an honorable guy with a lot of integrity. Turns out, that's just horse shit. If he's not guilty in all this, I'll let Fedor photography my ballsack after dressing it up in barbie clothes.
Also, do you people think he's still going to be round 1 NFL pick? If Michael Vick can get a pass, I'm sure he'll get hired by someone, as he's got incredible talent. But, what a douchenozzle.
I am disappoint.
Hard to say at what level of this he is involved in at this point, but he needs to be on security watch just in case he really is in the dark about this. Holy Fucking WoW!
Are you shitting me? He cried for Teo and talked about he was the most trusting guy he knew. He backed him 100%.
Yeah, the University came out pretty strong on Manti's side here, but in such a way that they can dump him and cover later. It'll go something like this:
"I truly believed him to be the most trusting guy, and that made me feel like he was the most trustworthy guy. He acted as a paragon of integrity, at least, he made us believe that, and, let's face it, he made the whole country believe that. It turns out we were all duped. He has been suspended from the school, and we can certainly hope we don't attract this type of hurtful, manipulative person ever again."
I believe I just wrote his speech for him.
So, how long until he admits this was all a fabrication? 1 week? 1 month? Never?
edit: I'd still draft him. Nothing wrong with a little crazy. Even if it was just a coverup for a gay tryst.
Well some guy in the NFL said he met the two of them together so there's some serious shady shit going on. How long to figure it out? How long will it take to live it down?
I posted my house for rent once on Craig's list and the interested party trolled me and ended being a 12 year old kid. Totally sucked and wasted a few minutes of my life. I feel you tompo
They translated the name of his girlfriend today, that should have been the first clue.
Lennay Kekua actually means "Roll Tide".
This is pretty much the greatest thing ever. Can't wait to hear his explanation.
He pretty much admitted that he was Evelys'ed.
Except why make up the part about meeting on field and vacationing in Hawaii?
His girlfriend that he talks to every night is in the hospital from not only a car accident, but a month later dying of leukemia and he never goes to visit her? Yeeeeeeaaahhh....
Lance Armstrong's story that everyone was doping but him was more believable.
If he comes out as gay I'm really curious to see how that effects his draft stock. Of course we won't really know if it's the gay or the insane that could cause him to drop.
I am just sad he is not eligible for one more year. We could have all watched Brent Musburger comment on how hot his imaginary/invisible girlfriend was.
Lol faggot, goes to show how idiotic and retarded college football really is.
So the 'Manti teo problem' is one of getting duppined, or evelysed? What will be the next foh-inspired RL drama? Will a spree-killer claim biggest burst dps? Will manti go tranny then become a douche in front of the world?
Has anyone identified the girl in the photo?
According to the deadspin.com article the real girl came forward when she saw her picture from her facebook posted with that name.
I expected some better insight when I saw we had a response from someone with first hand experience in pretending his girlfriend was dead.
Then again, what about the funeral? I would have to assume that there was a funeral, and he would have attended it if there was one. This whole situation is just fucked up.
The thing with his dad saying that he spent time with her in Hawaii multiple times is probably the biggest red flag that he's full of shit. That pretty much had to come from Manti himself; who else would have told his dad that? What possible reason would he have for telling his dad that unless he was actually doing something else? It seems plausible that he and his buddy are actually fuck buddies and this was their way of covering it up; either that, or they were idiots and thought it was good Heisman hype which they could get away with somehow.
popcorn.gif. This shit is great lol
I really hope that person on the other end of the phone ends up being a tranny. This story is fucking awesome.
I guess it's possible he was duped but given all the info out there, it really doesn't make sense.
Either the "I need a good storyline for the Heisman run" or "my online girlfriend covers the fact I'm into dudes" makes way more sense.
Boy, I'd like to be an NFL GM on the other side of the interview table in a few months. That should be interesting.
Notre Dame's official response claimed that Manti came to them about this on December 26th. Yet, Manti was still answering questions about his GF all the way until the BCS Championship.
The guy who ran the Lennay and her sister accounts was a close friend of Teo's. So close that he was Teo's guest at the USC/ND game. Manti Teo has also since deleted all tweets aimed at Lennay's sister's twitter account.
As someone else put it:
The fact that he claims to have spent hundreds and hundreds of hours talking to this girl completely disproves the possibility that he was tricked. What fucking reason would ANYONE have to continue this for so long; it was a guy who created the girl persona (and a family friend on Manti, at that). It would be absolutely impossible to find some girl who spend countless hours on the phone with him - for what? There is no fucking logical explanation for the idea that this was an elaborate (understatement) hoax, perpetrated by his friend, with absolutely no motive, who found a girl who was willing to devout days and days on the phone pretending to be some girl.
Manti was obviously in on this, but that's no longer the question. The question is why this was done. Is he gay and (understandably) afraid to come out? Did he do this for the publicity?
If they pulled his phone records they would see he never talked to her on the phone either I am willing to bet.
The Deadspin dude who wrote the article was on Dan Patrick this morning talking about how they uncovered everything. FF to about 11 or 12 minutes: http://danpatrick.directv.com.edgesu...013_stream.mp3
Listening to it right now. Awesome interview so far.
Yeah they need to put to rest this whole "Manti was TRICKED" bullshit. No way in this day and age a 21/22 year old dude dates a girl over the phone for a couple years and has never heard of skype/facetime/etc. Only question is whether this was done for the publicity or the gay. Since he didn't win the heisman I'm hoping it was for the gay just to add some more strange layers to the story.
Tim Burke (the guy who blew the lid off this) is also a well known 'tripfag' on /sp/
If there's one thing that I'm sure of, it's that the internet is relentless with this stuff. I think he will continue to deny this as even more incriminating information piles up. However, Notre Dame's athletic director did not do itself a favor by backing Teo's victim story as rigidly as they did.
Apparently ESPN knew about it before the game but still ran the piece in the pregame specifically about her.
Already I'm seeing and hearing people rationalize this is why ND lost becuase Te'o told some teamates and they problably told more teamates and they were distracted. What a crock.
I like how the Notre Dame AD cried during the Te'o press conference instead of the one after that videographer kid fell to his death.
Well, whoever is behind the hoax is sure to get some internet justice lol.
I wonder how long until they are tracked down.
Not sure what this has to do with Te'o's football ability. If anything it exposes just how fanatical people get about the sport. I doubt there was anything illegal done unless the woman at the center of the hoax was paid by another football team?
The article says Te'o talked to somebody on the phone. I'm going to assume that he can at least tell the difference between a female and a male voice.

My take that pretty much proves his guilt:
*Moments after all this coming out Te'o immediately says he was duped. He doesn't even take any time to find out things for himself or self-investigate. Nope just immediately said "hoax."
*He was close to her. So close saying they were going to marry. Usually when people die they have a funeral. Are you telling me he didn't attend the funeral of this person when they died?
His story is that she told him that she didn't want him to miss a game to come to her funeral. Total bullshit but that base was covered in a half-assed way.
Fame? Publicity? His face on ESPN?
Like they said on that interview Disp linked there are tons of reason for Te'o to make the hoax but absolutely zero reason to perpetrate the hoax. No one is going to stay on the phone with him all night for months "for the lulz."
I'm sure people will be tracking down all the details though. Electronic trails probably still exist out there.
I mean, assuming he did it for the publicity. How would he think the publicity would help his chances of getting into the NFL. Wouldn't teams be skeptical of a drama seeking player who lies? Assuming he did it to cover up for his alleged gayness, wouldn't the exposure of such a hoax put more scrutiny on him being gay in the first place?
It looks like Notre Dame hired an investigative firm to assess the situation before going public. I wonder if they will release their findings or if they will keep it private for now in the event of legal proceedings against those involved.
This is a list to help college football players from getting deceived in the future.

Bottom line: Who fucking cares? Does he 'owe' the public an explanation? Not really. Will the sports media demand an explanation? Yes. Were his actions that of a Brony/Btard/Robot? Yes.
He probably saw Tebow, a know shitpile of a QB, get drafted in the first round on celebrity status
Maybe he doesn't necessarily owe the public an explanation, but you better believe NFL teams are going to be digging deep into this story and his life and if he doesn't come out clean on the other side (i.e. he better have a good explanation and have truly been the victim of a hoax) or he is going to have cost himself millions upon millions of dollars in draft stock.
My personal guess, not that I'm well informed enough to know what truly happened, is that he was the victim of a hoax, but then he exaggerated his relationship with the girlfriend (that he did believe existed) for his own personal gain in the form of public perception and sympathy.
So this is what happens when ESPN meets Lifetime Movie Network?
Trollin. I actually wish now he would have won the Heisman to see all the shenanigans being called. Truly lol.

The more I read about it, the more the cover for being gay scenario makes sense. A long distance GF he only visits at random times when no one else is present covers the bases. However, early in his Sr year, he was starting to get press attention for awards. Can't take the fake GF to award shows and more attention = more questions = more possibility for exposure. Pretending to break up makes more sense, but having her fake die may keep people off your case a longer time. No one is going to ask where your new GF is when the previous one died.
ND would have good reason to back him, as it wouldn't be great for them if their football hero came out as gay. Hmm. Too early and too few details to draw conclusions, but interesting none the less.
