Manti Te'o

There's absolutely no way he wasn't in on it. Someone found out in December, and his family panicked and gave some BS explanation to the school. Nothing adds up here. The chick's picture is of a completely different person, who he supposedly met several times in real life, was his girlfriend for like a year, but she says she never met him.

All we can wait for now is for Te'o to tell everyone whats really going on, because the school's explanation doesn't add up at all. This story is crazy.
That Deadspin article looks to be very well researched, so I can't see any reason to doubt it. Also, if half of what they're saying is correct, there's is zero chance that he didn't know what was going on. So the question is, if this does turn out to be true, would he fall to us or even further?

Second thing, if it's true, and he falls to us in the 1st, would we even want him?

word, that article is well put together and connects dot after dot, it's gonna take a lot to dismantle it.

Second: NO

He looks like a Brian Bozworth clone to me, just sayin...

Is Te'o fast? Could he do the opposite of Urlacher (sp) and go from LBer to Strong Safty?

Okay,. maybe an insaine Brian Bozworth WTF!!!!!

The only other thing I could think of is maybe his girlfriend was really a boyfriend that died so he covered it up with an acceptable story?

Deadspin has top lawyers, this is gone over by them, so wouldn't be released if there was anything wrong in the story. He will be available when we pick, but that isn't a need for us so we would pass... He is probably a 2nd-3rd round pick now.

That was one of my first thoughts.

It was a hoax now the only question that remains is whether or not Teo was a victim or the mastermind? Maybe both?

RT @realfreemancbs: NFL scout on Manti Catfish: "Won't hurt draft stock. We draft guys that rob banks." So, there's that.
Maybe he's gay and this was some form of eccentric cover-up?

To be honest that's been my thoughts on the whole story.

Him and his buddy, both come from strict religious backgrounds, both very close, his buddy knew the girl whose photos were stolen, his buddy got into a car accident about a month before his fake girlfriend supposedly did...etc...etc, just saying.............


Either that or its one of the greatest, most epic trolling jobs of all time...ALL TIME!

I think this dude's draft stock just fell to the point where he may not be drafted now.

I mean -- kids -- this is BAD. After a stunt like this, who would EVER trust this guy? And he still didn't put a stop to it, even after it became the subject of multiple media reports.

Do you know what sports reporters will do to Manti now? The Full Manti will take on a whole new meaning.

Speaking of which, should we call him The Fail Manti now?

+1
According to recent reports, Manti Te'o's girlfriend never existed.

According to the BCS Championship game, neither did his 1st-round talent.
