so now a stance has been made and the media is grabbing on...Te'o is the victim. I still want three questions answered:
1. Why was he (T'eo) playing along from Dec 6 until now? Out of embarrassment..really? I'm not buying that.
2. What's the deal with the NFL guy for the Cardinals who says he met this girl?
3. Some of his (T'eo) statements need an explanation from him. "On the phone 8 hours a night"? He also needs to explain who he was going to meet in Hawaii.....referencing his Dad's comments. I mean, that was a long time ago...right?
So now it appears to me, people are trying to cover up for Te'o to make it look like he was the victim. This is just getting crazier and crazier.
This doesn't surprise me. Te'O is soon to become a millionaire. Would you be surprised if it turned out he, or his reps, went to this other guy and offered him a couple hundred thousand dollars to take the blame for this and claim Te'O had nothing to do with it?
Minor league teams always have the best promotions.
From the blog Big League Stew: Just when you thought the Manti Te’o story and its fallout couldn’t get any more absurd, we present to you the Florence Freedom. Who are the Florence Freedom you ask? They're an Independent baseball team that plays in the Frontier … Continue reading →
don't forget..the mother ship is protecting itself by protecting T'eo..you bet this is how they will spin it..whether its fact or not
I posted this on the Blue Board.
Most of the story about Manti Te'o lying due to embarrassment makes sense. However...the dude voluntarily did interviews with ESPN and others about the death of his gf. He went on and on about how she was the love of his life, most beautiful woman he's ever seen, about how they'd spend so much time on the phone, etc.
That makes no sense. If someone is lying only because they're embarrassed about having an online relationship, then they're going to want to minimize how much they talk about it. Why would you do a nationally publicized interview about it where everything you say is a lie?
I still want to know who the mystical women he met at Stanford was, and who flew to Hawaii to see him. And who the women Brian Te'o claimed Manti was in a relationship with. That is what I want to know.
Of course though, this is just all to protect Manti and try to make him as good as possible no matter what the truth is. What a crock of $hit!
Also, who was the girl that called Manti's parents to express condolences when the grandmother passed??
Any decent reporter shoukd simply be asking for phone records of the 8 hour conversations. It is really that simple. If they don't exist and there is no proof of those calls, he is lying. If they do exist, then either a) he was fooled and some idiotic female wasted countless hours of her real life all for a prank or b) he was in on it and dialed a number and left it connected for 8 hours to make a paper trail.
My guess...there are no records and right now they r trying to find a way around that when asked by people in the future. Too much smoke for him to have been fooled this long and some poor , sad girl wasting her life for a college prank.
"Her" name is Ronaiah and "she" is cashing in hardcore right now.
yup..and lets have T'eo describe how they met again...i believe he is on record saying it was after a game he was in her presence and they sort of exchanged "hello's" and "eye contact"......hmmmm
Not a Whitlock fan by any stretch but he nails it here.
The media outrage over Manti Teo hypocritical, FOXSports.coms Jason Whitlock says. Whitlock: Media outrage over Teo hypocritical
"I like your head, it's a good look." - James Franklin, to a bald reporter asking a question.
No he's not. That was how his father described their meeting. It's not how T'eo described it.
Technically, Te'o did describe it that way.
Unless the father has a different surname, of course.
I was starting to think that he was dumb and fooled, and after finding out that he was dumb and fooled, decided to just go with it.
After this interview though, I have a hard time believing he wasn't in on it.
Manti Te'o denied being part of a hoax involving a relationship with a person online whom he considered his girlfriend, during an interview with ESPN on Friday night.
Either he is the biggest and lamest idiot of all time, or he is a liar... Either way, nothing to be proud of.
WE ARE! And we will always be...
Not after his stupid interview with that dickhead Schaaaaaaaap.
Either he was a moron and kept lying after he found out. Or he was in on it, and kept lying after he was found out.
I'm starting to worry that our BOT was a part of this "damage control" after that interview.
LOL @ our BOT... Schapp is a big piece of Mark May. Either way you slice it, Teo has a very low IQ.
I can't wait for the combine. He will be interviewed b every GM. Oh...and there's this thing called the Wonderlic. Look out Vince Young.
"He tried to speak with Kekua via Skype and FaceTime on several occasions, but the person at the other end of the line was in what he called a "black box" and wasn't seen."
Any moron would know it is time to hang it up if this were to happen. I'm guessing he's provided his account number to emails from Nigeria, too.
His IQ is a smaller number than his shoe size number if we are to believe this interview. He's a moron and big time dramatizer. Yeah, he was in love with a girl he never met. Lied to his dad about meeting her. What a scumbag.

I think he's GPA at ND was 3.2, makes you wonder.
Meyer4Prez "This is wut happens when ur team site analyst are huge homers glad Bill K+Alex G keep it real instead of getting our hopes up."
"So I kind of tailored my stories to have people think that, yeah, he met her before she passed away, so that people wouldn't think that I was some crazy dude."
Well that kinda backfired...
So now that it's been thoroughly conveyed that Lennay Kekua is indeed a fictional person, who in god's name is the supposed Lennay Kekua that Reagan Mauia defiantly stated he knew?
He made her sound like a dime.
