    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.

    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?

    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.

    The other day I saw a bunch of idiots along with a YouTube video claiming that the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax which is absolutely ridiculous and heartless. (although there was a lot of through provoking things)

    But this fake girlfriend thing seems 100% true and is just so WEIRD. WHY on Earth would someone waste their time with a fake girlfriend? :ugh:

    Well the national title game knocked him to mid to late 1st round, this knocks him out of the first round, maybe even the second and now I think he will skip all the pre draft stuff because of the media backlash.

    Wouldn't be surprised if he goes on the 3rd

    Even if he is drafted in the 7th round can you imagine the amount of sarcasm/insults he will have to face from opposing players and fans? I think it is best for him to remain on the island of Hawaii :rofl:

    Interesting timing to release a story as such. It takes a lot of the focus of Lance Armstrong and his systematic cheating and bullying of cyclists.
