    Wow, this is the craziest story ever, if true. You better believe he'll be asked about it in the combine. Wonder how he'll respond to these accusations, as I think it could even impact his draft stock a little bit, considering his character has always been a big reason why he's so highly regarded.

    RT @SIPeteThamel: ND releases statement says Te'o was a victim of a hoax: "a sad and very cruel deception to entertain its perpetrators."

    Pete Thamel ‏@SIPeteThamel
    ND: "Lennay Kekua apparently ingratiated herself with Manti and then conspired with others to lead him to believe she had tragically died.


    Criminy. So this woman convinced him she had died? What the ...?

    What a strange story. Not sure how much I believe those tweets given that the author pretty much noted that there is no record of this girl ever existing...

    They're trying to save face. From reading the story, it's pretty obvious Te'o and Tuiasosopo made the whole thing up, in order for Manti to have this tragic background that made him into an even stronger, more faithful and admirable figure. How the **** would you date a girl for years over the internet, without even meeting her once in this day and age? Especially a guy who's the most well known college LB in the country. Come on, now. There's absolutely no way he would've been fooled.

    This is shocking! Whether he was in on it or not, why?

    Man, I think now this story is the reason the phrase "Wait. What?" was invented.

    And how did he talk to her daily on the phone? And did he not even once go visit his DYING GIRLFRIEND? Yeah, there are too many holes in this story. Manti should just come up and admit he screwed up before he's grilled by NFL evaluators in the Combine interviews. This story will make a dent on his draft stock.

    If he was in on it and all, how did he think he was gonna get away with it? So much wtf in this story. Tbh, I never even heard about his dying girlfriend(that now doesn't exist) or anything before I clicked on this thread. In a celebrity world that can find out what you had for breakfast 3 years ago, it's crazy to think you could get away with such a hoax.

    If Manti got tricked like this, he's got no shot in the pros. Just run misdirections on him all day.

    This is going to be the most interesting draft stock case. How much does lying about something like this cost him?

    I can't wait for the Oprah confession interview. I hope the Jets pick him.

    Manti, just come out of the closet. Even if he ain't gay that might be the only way to save his image here.

    Only explanation I can come up with that makes sense is Te'o misremembered that he had a dying girlfriend.
