So he has a GF, he falls in love with her online, because, that's just the kind of guy he is. They have such a great connection.
and he doesn't go to her funeral??
This is just me, but If I'm in an online relationship with a chick, its lasting about a week before I ask for some pictures/skype/nude pics. If she refuses, I probably ask a few more times and then I become suspicious. Certainly not going to keep up a relationship with someone who won'teven try to look me in the eye FOR 3 YEARS. The presser is BS. Swarbrick says that there were planned meetings and that she didnt show up. If I'm so in love with a chick and she stands me up more than once, its pretty easy to cut ties with an online girl. This whole things is 100 percent bull ish.
So he never called the hospital directly? Never tried to send flowers to the room? Get the phone records... I will believe him when I see he called her every night and had 8 hour long conversations. Lets pull the text messages sent...
That's hilarious. The Oprah interview will follow soon after. Lol
It's like an episode from Blue Mountain State. lol
I wonder if Teo had a PR guy on the release of this crap. 1 night before the Oprah interview with Lance. ESPN won't know what to do with itself tomorrow.

Brent Musburger thinks Te'o fake girlfriend is hot
Exactly, btw what's his email address? I happen to know his uncle in kenya also just passed away who happens to be filthy rich. I just need to get some info from him and I'll try to get that money sent over to him ASAP
No, she sent him a note via twitter that she wanted him to honor her by playing. Read the deadspin article. This girl had a bad fake car accident. She was in a coma which he talked to her every night via the phone. Don't you think the fake hospital or nobody else there tip you off? Her parents maybe in the room. She also had cancer to boot. Yet ND is thinking he was just a bit naive. ND is naive for allowing this crap to go out. Read the deadspin article out there and the timeline of events. It sounds so made up that I'm not sure how ND isn't saying the young man fooled us...sorry.
You're fake girlfriend probably was never in a fake coma following a fake car wreck only to find out she had fake leukemia. You're fake girlfriend wasn't the warrior Teo's fake girlfriend was so you'll never know how strong that bond was.
Apparently, the AD is more "trusting" than the most trusting man he knows.

This just goes to show that PSU could've held a press conference back in Nov 2011 and said ANYTHING and it would've helped diffuse the situation.
In the span of an hour it went from "Manti faked everything," to ESPN actually entertaining the absolutely ridiculous and baseless possibility that he was "duped."
PSU had much more ammunition to actually separate itself, Paterno and others from blame at the time by stating how University protocol was followed, 2nd mile was contacted, and Sandusky was fully investigated blah blah blah.
While it is hilarious to read the Te'o jokes and everything that comes along with this, it is also immeasurably infuriating to watch the stark difference in how our leadership handled things back then, and basic common sense.

It's great that bama board has an official joke thread. It's locked but first few are funny.
Abso-freaking-lutely. I had similar thoughts.
It's just unbelievable how poor were our BOT's decisions in handling our situation.
PSU's response to this would have been...Joe had put Teo up to it...get those 2 bastards.
Smart kid right there.

Thad would totally have a fake gf die and use it to boost his draft stock.

My fake girlfriend sent better fake nude pictures.
I literally just said the same exact thing to my wife. I was telling her about the story and ended it with "watch...it's going to come out that he is gay". Funny stuff.
The yahoo story says that Manti won three awards on Dec 6. – the Bednarik Award for top defensive player, the Walter Camp Foundation player of the year award and the Maxwell Award, given to the top player in the nation.
The story also reports that is the same day the resurrected LannyKay called Manti to tell him he had also won the “DUMBA$$ of the YEAR AWARD”.

The journalists are looking really foolish right now. These guys pimped Te'o all year for web hits, and a huge amount of them voted for him for Heisman. So dumb. And they all got scooped by Deadspin for one of the biggest sports stories of the year.
