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

Stating the obvious: Sometimes young people don't make mature decisions.

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

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.

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.

Why is Notre Dame backing this clown? The AD was crying while he gave a press conference. lol. You gotta be kidding me. I don't know who looks worse. Te'o or the AD.

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.

[quote=CultBrennan59;989430]Yeah I want to know if he was really talking to a girl on the phone or if he was making that up. If he wasn't making it up then who could the girls voice be?[/quote]he would like you to believe that is was some stranger playing a cruel joke on him
