I think his performance in the championship game will hurt his draft stock more than his lies, regardless of his motivations.

Cause he knew the story was about to come out. He's full of shit.

As someone who's been involved in raising money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for a few years, I have to say this is a really good point.
To be honest, I sort of feel the same way about Lance Armstrong.

*edit - I wouldn't go so far as to say I feel bad for the guy

Re: The Manti Te'o Dead Girlfriend Hoax Web of Lies

Lennay Kekua's death resonated across the college football landscape—especially at Notre Dame, where the community immediately embraced her as a fallen sister. Charity funds were started, and donations poured into foundations dedicated to leukemia research. More than $3,000 has been pledged in one IndieGogo campaign raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Re: The Manti Te'o Dead Girlfriend Hoax Web of Lies

There are much worst things going on in this country right now.


Even if the guy lied and was part of it. who did he really hurt? Probably himself and family the most.

There is a saying for teenage and twenty something boys.

Young dumb and full of c*m.

Those three factors make for bad decisions. I know I had plenty at that age.

Raising money is great, but I have a hard time feeling bad for him without yet knowing the extent of his involvement in this whole thing.

Re: The Manti Te'o Dead Girlfriend Hoax Web of Lies

I've ignored the whole enchilada till now. He just sounds like a kid with maturity issues, rather than a compulsive liar etc. Is that the general feeling?

Good point, and one i hadnt really thought of.

I just listened to a radio interview from September, after his non-existent girlfriend "died." He stated he spoke to her on the phone every night for 4 months because she couldnt go fall asleep unless they were on the phone.

So I wonder how anyone can think of supporting him, or claim he was a victim of an online hoax. Now he's saying it was exclusively online. There is no possible explanation or reconcilation between the two stories Te'o has told.

In one scenario, you have him telling a bold face lie about his relationship with his deceased girlfriend - in an interview when he is also distraught about his grandmother dying.

In the other, he DID talk to her every day, but now, for reasons that i cannot fathom, he is saying he didnt and it was online-only.

Either way, he's enough of a head-case to raise alot of red flags to NFL teams. However, alot NFL teams dont seem to have a problem spending 1st round picks on guys who've beat their girlfriends, stealing laptops, and doing drugs, so maybe making up a girlfriend is a small red flag in comparison.

Re: The Manti Te'o Dead Girlfriend Hoax Web of Lies

He lied about having a girlfriend, and killed her off when it wasn't convenient anymore. No actual girlfriends were harmed in the production of this story. Worst thing about this story is the timing both now, and during some of the events.

For me, I think he used her as an excuse when he needed to get away from his parents (pretty sure all of us made up things to get parents off our backs, well at least I know I did), and then when his Grandma died, he -being not so creative - used that same plot to get rid of an unnecessary fiction in his life. During the course of it, it took on legs of it's own, and getting out from under it made for the conflicting parts of his stories.

My best hope is that he somehow falls to us, but this isn't going to cause that type of fall, I am sure. (If it does, we need to get Vinnie C to start planting fictional girlfriends for all the top cornerbacks and safeties in the draft, for some reason I think he would be good at that!)
