Notre Dame Statement: Manti Teo

On Dec. 26, Notre Dame coaches were informed by Manti Teo 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.

Deadspin is now saying the girlfriend never existed. Te'o is now saying he was the victim of a hoax, in which case the explanation released by the Te'o family is very......just....I. Keep in mind though this is just from scanning articles about a story I learned no less then 10 minutes ago.

I imagine this will give you the clarity you seek.

I take it that the girl did him wrong in deceiving him about her death. But he then turned that story on its head as if it had been true so that he could spin it into positive publicity.

If I have this right, that's messed up all around.

Very possible. If thats the case he'd have been much better served to play hockey as an ESPN poll of players shows 92.3% of NHL players support gay marriage. NFL is second at 61.5%. After that NBA at 46.2% and MLB at 45% in favor of. Personally I would guess that the NHL has the lowest percentage of gay players and MLB and NBA would have the highest.

On a slight side note I wouldn't be surprised if Tebow was gay. Youngest male sibling in a large family, soft voice, extremely religous so he doesn't have to live up to the typical "player" standard also on top of that it's not uncommon for people to be scared of certain urges and turn to God to "cure" them.

Of course I'm talking out my arse but the point here should be we have to get over this pandemic of homophobia because if someone were to come out it would be a HUGE DEAL when in reality it should just be "oh he's gay, wow, never would have guessed, OH I love this commercial."

Oh and in the interest of fairness maybe I'm gay because I'm really quick to point out others that might be gay drawing attention away from my gayness.

Maybe LaVar is gay and that's how he sniffed him out.
