ESPN has questionable credibility on the issue, since they knew that the girl didn't exist for nearly 2 weeks and didn't report on it.

I agree. I think that is the most likely scenario.

He still said he's seen this girl before in real life, his father has even said he's met with this girl and has had her over the house. So they're all a bunch of weird people, Ronaiah, his cousins, and Manti and his family. They all participated in a large lie.

The best thing he can do right now and just come clean. Say that he's a big idiot and he doesn't know why he did that. Say that he's sorry and willing to take it on the chin. Then get a spot on Saturday Night Live and be the butt of whatever skit they can come up with and just take the jokes that will come until people get tired of it.

I mean i think he will have some support if he was gay and he was just nervous about how the public perception would be of a morman going to Notre Dame feared about coming out to the public. That makes more sense.

If he just made this **** up for sh*ts and giggles i hope every team colludes not to pick this clown in the upcoming draft.

*Also I can't believe the girl above was giong out with him for 2 months and there is not one picture of them going out together...today with camera phones and media alll over the place there has to be some evidents that this 2 month relationship occured...otherwise it could just be another fake situation about a girl trying to get attention.


here you go, friend:

Well after hearing his uncle's interview on radio and him telling us more about this Ronaiah guy, I guess Te'o is the victim.

But now Te'o simply has to do is admit he was in an online relationship. He was too embarrassed and ashamed to say so to the media, which is why he made up lies about meeting up with her. Admit he was emotionally attached to this virtual and long distant relationship, even though the person behind it was just playing a joke on him.

Once he does that this whole thing will be dropped. People will think he's a little weird for being a high profile player in an online relationship but at least they will know what's really going on and the "he's gay" and other crap will go away.

Don't know but he can make other speculation go away easily.

Besides, does anyone here still talk about Kyrie Irving jacking off on a webcam? Pretty sure that was bad, but it went away.

This will go away if Manti handles it properly.

man, this story is so weird. I mean, he didn't need a gf sympathy story. He lost a REAL person (grandmother) so all he had to do was lie and say his grandmother meant the world to him.

Also can not believe how well this was all kept quiet. At this point, with him getting down with St Mary's "finest" perhaps she has some part of this as well? I mean her major is public relations... She probably saw Teo as a "business opportunity"

No, it is not going away and will be with him for a long time. Unlike Kyrie, the media feels like they were tricked, deceived, duped, and bamboozle by him. They are not going to let him off that easy, they will go after him with a vengeance for making a fool of them. He pretty much showed them up for being lazy and incompetent for running with a story and never verifying it. I for one don't feel bad that all parties are looking like idiots.
