he already said he found out on december 6th. So even if you believe his story that he thought this stranger on the internet who he never met was the love of his life for 3 years, he's still admitting that he continued to lie about it for a month after he knew the truth. ****, just two days later on december 8th he gave an interview and went on and one about the love of his life dying of leukemia.

Proven. Guilty.

he said he got a phone call on december 6th from the same number of lennay, not that he knew it was hoax on december 6th. he never said she was the love of his life for three years

If you believe he was duped by some imaginary e-girlfriend then you're a complete fool. So you're just going to believe everything he says?

There are countless holes in the story and he's taken like 4 days to come up with some excuses to patch them up.



Seriously... an e-girlfriend? What is he 12? He's anything but shy and I guarantee every girl at ND wanted him... but he's meeting girls on facebook? Someone talked to him for hours every night just for a joke?


If he was a victim of anything it was a TINY amount and he embellished it 10 fold.

lol another one appears


MANTI TE'O: Before the car crash, it was -- we were talking. I was talking to her. I was talking to other girls. Just trying to get to know people. I was a college player, just trying to get a feel of who was who.

JEREMY SCHAAP: There was a lot of girls.

MANTI TE'O: There were a lot of girls. Not a lot. A couple.

brb other people saying this ranaiah guy pulled the same prank on their cousin. i guess te'o conspired with them to make up this story?

lol please. he said many times it was the love of his life, and he said they met in 2009. Only a child plays with semantics to win arguments. He knew in december this fake girl wasn't dead, whether or not he knew she was fake (he did.)

lol notsureifsrs. There are so many quotes from him its not even funny. brb tell gene w. that the family didn't want lennays pics out when she died, says she wanted him to never miss a game so he didnt go to the funeral lol. Lied to his dad. Said she was one of the most beautiful people he ever met (based on her heart)...hmm man to me it seems really hard to get to know someone that deeply over the phone. Wanted to thank her family for all the support they gave him when she/his grandma died, oh really... what family did you talk to?

lol if my gf died i would want some fuking answers

Because they met in 2009, three years before she "died" and he found out she was fake/not dead. He said many, many times she was the love of his life.

3 year relationship, claims the love of his life, so any reasonable person would understand what someone means when they say "she was the love of his life for three years." Are you going to tweet him and ask when he knew in their 3 year "relationship" that she was the love of his life so that we can make a more accurate statement?

"Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?" This story has no relation to the legal system, so that would fall under the category of day to day life.

And do you live under a rock? Te'o admitted to "tailoring" his story to the media, which is an euphemism for HE LIED. Totally weird how his lies only suited to increase his fame and make him a Heisman runner up.

Idiot.

We can either:
1. choose to believe this huge story with statements from multiple parties that never seem to add up, and that downright contradict one another at certain points.

or

2. Believe he is a damn liar and a piece of self-promoting garbage


He at best greatly exaggerated his relationship with this "girl" for the press or how the media was taking off with it and at worst he's a piece of sh*t that knew about it and did the above.

also i don't believe i've made a definite statement regarding his guilt or innocence (i guess i could be somewhat biased)

Gotta admit I feel kinda dirty for being involved in this discussion. It's funny cuz I only knew Te'o from mock drafts and that girlfriend death story I heard and didn't give a fukk about. But I feel bad for the dude, it's some deep shiit and there's too much crazy accusations flying around.

I don't know the whole story, but let me give this a shot..

Manti is probably a socially awkward dude, found someone online to talk to and found it comforting because his social anxiety was some what relieved by an online friendship.. Found out it was a hoax later in the season but was too embarrassed to admit it.. So he just went with the story hoping no one would find out..

He's been talking to her for 3 years? He just got played, lol!

I mean how can you plan something like that 3 years in advance? Idk..

That is funny op because you didn't clearly read the original report, you know done by the guy who did all the proper research unlike espn and ND. He said he was 80% sure that te'o was involved. Obviously in a matter like this it won't get past that because te'o would never confess before the draft. I like how you are trusting the "facts" from the sources that didn't do their research in the first place and are now all trying to save face. You should actually wish te'o confessed because if he thought she was real at any point, than it would make te'o a horrible human being. Correct me if i am wrong but in the christian faith, if your gf of 3 years is in a car crash and then gets leukemia, wouldn't you visit her regardless of her wishes? Since when is college football more important that a loved one? Just saying

everyone's mind was already made up before any details were confirmed. If you like ND, then you gave him the benefit of the doubt and now believe him. If you hate ND, no matter what comes out you are going to think its a lie and people covering for him. Unfortunately for Te'o more people hate ND than like them. He does have ESPN, Yahoo, CBS, and NBC on his side though. I'm kind of over it and can't wait for sports media to actually cover sports
