    This is the greatest story ever. It wouldn't fly as a novel, let alone real life.

  • Reading through the report, warning flags were flying everywhere. Musically gifted, Stanford graduate (thus intelligent), perfect, etc. etc. then diagnosed with leukemia BEFORE being killed in a car crash? It's like a Stephenie Meyer character.

    But seriously this is weird as hell. They way he talked about it, it seems like there's no way he wasn't in on it. We'll see though, plenty more info to come.

    You're right. Either way, it's ridiculous.

    I never paid attention to the story, but I kind of wish I had now, because my BS instinct would have kicked in when I saw that. As someone else mentioned, you wouldn't buy that characterization in a novel (unless you were a lonely housewife or you read Dan Brown books).

  • How does he not know that this would eventually hit the light of day? I thought I read in the story that the father, Brian claimed to have met the girl friend. Time to go back to the story to clear up this bit of confusion.

    EDIT: Okay, Pops states that Manti would see her in Hawaii while they both were on the Island. So T'eo cannot claim he was duped, otherwise he was lying about hooking up with mythical girl to Pops. Or Pops just made assumptions?

    2010-2011: Te'o and Kekua are friends. "She was gifted in music, multi-lingual, had dreams grounded in reality and the talent to catch up to them" (South Bend Tribune). "They started out as just friends," Te'o's father, Brian, told the Tribune in October 2012. "Every once in a while, she would travel to Hawaii, and that happened to be the time Manti was home, so he would meet with her there."

  • I've read up on this and I'm still not quite sure what happened. Has Te'o confessed to being in on it or is he claiming someone tricked him in some way? The latter is what he claimed when he went to ND with it on Dec. 26th.

    But if Deadspin has been working on this and calling around, and eventually the real girl called the Tuiasosopo kid inquiring about it....easily could've been a preemptive move knowing this was going to break.

    He claimed to have met her in person, so he's either lying about something small and irreversibly stupid or a lying chump and irreversibly stupid.

    A) He was a non-factor against Alabama

    B) This might have been a huge publicity stunt. If so, then do you really want to draft the kind of player who's willing to put his career at stake in order for some pub?

  • He's basically a less gifted tackle machine type like Luke Kuechly. I think he is worth it, but Seattle might demand more speed at MLB than what Te'o offers. I wouldn't lose sleep if he fell to us and Seattle passed. Seattle's options at #25 are going to kick ass this year.

  • Not gonna say "I told you so".... but feel free to read back a ways on Manti and my thoughts on him. I liked him as a high schooler, I liked him as a college player. I mentioned "issues", but said I wouldn't get into specifics out of respect for his privacy and not wanting to be a rumor spreader. But I did discuss that he had some situations that were a concern, that his BYU visit was a mess, that coaches told him to go elsewhere, and his cousin went through the same business after coming to school and getting booted.

    There is a lot to like about him, but there is a real immaturity that has been evident since day 1. I will go no further. I will just say that this doesn't surprise me, this kind of behavior is par for the course, and it wouldn't be the first time he had pulled a completely moronic stunt for attention that ended up burning him.

    Those who called me a "hater" obviously don't understand how the family connections work and how people know stuff, at least to some degree. Manti has always been a superior athlete, and a really super friendly kid. But he's also been known for doing some really super dumb stuff. So... no surprise. It is what it is, and hopefully he grows up one of these days. I thought this year he might have made some leaps in that department. Apparently I was wrong if this story is what I think it is (and I think it is something that I'll leave alone).

  • I do not believe anything he or Notre Dame is saying. He obviously created this whole BS thing to help drive his Heisman hype machine. I remember seeing him claim to have met her in person. Really pathetic.

    After seeing him get demolished in the BCS title game, I did not think he was a first round pick. Now I have no interest in seeing him on the Hawks at all.

    I think his point is that he indicated that there were character issues with Teo but others called him out on it. So he's just saying that maybe people will be a little more reserved in their responses to his posts about players.

    I know I personally appreciate Shark's knowledge of BYU player and Mountain area players. He has always been accurate and I never saw any "I Know and you don't" from him.

    He's just sharing information, and there are some of us on here that appreciate it and don't make negative assumptions about his intent.

    I know, right?

    This is the greatest story ever. It wouldn't fly as a novel, let alone real life.


    It's not just Teo, think of the Sports illustrated hack who reported the "touching" scene of them on the phone together with here sleeping.. There was some collusion on the media's part. They are just as guilty. Wouldn't you think a legitimate reporter would want confirm some stuff before running with such a crazy story. Any sort of investigative journalism would have uncovered the truth long before now.

  • Maybe Sharkhawk is being a little more reserved since his last character defamation crusade (Mike Leach) ended up just looking like a personal vendetta. But, he's right, Teo has a history of immaturity, and whatever way this ends up slicing, his immaturity has once again hurt him. The whole thing is funny and sad.

    Teo got exposed against Alabama, ND made their bones beating mediocre teams this year, just like they do every year. If you get overpowered physically against Alabama, you'll get overpowered in the NFL.

  • LINK: http://articles.southbendtribune.com/20 ... head-coach

    Lennay Kekua was a Stanford student and Cardinal football fan when the two exchanged glances, handshakes and phone numbers that fateful weekend three seasons ago.

    She was gifted in music, multi-lingual, had dreams grounded in reality and the talent to catch up to them.

    The plan was for Kekua to spend extensive time with the whole Te'o family when upwards of 40 of them came to South Bend in mid-November for ND's Senior Day date with Wake Forest.

    "They started out as just friends," Brian Te'o said. "Every once in a while, she would travel to Hawaii, and that happened to be the time Manti was home, so he would meet with her there. But within the last year, they became a couple.

    "And we came to the realization that she could be our daughter-in-law. Sadly, it won't happen now."

    About the time Kekua and Manti became a couple, she was injured in an auto accident. There were complications during her recovery. And it was also during her recovery that it was discovered Kekua had leukemia.

    "That was just in June," Brian Te'o said. "I remember Manti telling me later she was going to have a bone marrow transplant and, sure enough, that's exactly what happened. From all I knew, she was doing really, really well."

    Kekua, who eventually graduated from Stanford, was, in fact, doing so well that she was released from the hospital on Sept. 10. And Brian Te'o was among those congratulating her via telephone.

    Less than 48 hours later, at 4 a.m. Hawaii time, Kekua sent a text to Brian and Ottilia, expressing her condolences over the passing of Ottilia's mom, Annette Santiago, just hours before.

    Brian awakened three hours later, saw the text, and sent one back. There was no response. A couple of hours later, Manti called his parents, his heart in pieces.

    Lennay Kekua had died.

  • Notre Dame is going to end up wearing the shame too. Supposedly they knew Dec. 26 the story wasn't true, but said nothing til the Deadspin story was set to break.

    That's the sound of Manti Te'o landing in round six of the draft.


    Normally I'd just chalk this up to trolling but considering your previous ridiculous prediction regarding "character issues" I can't tell what you're really up to here.

    Do you actually believe this?

    Rob's not a troll, lol.

    I think he's right. In fact, going undrafted is a real possibility. Chris Polk had a second round grade but went undrafted in large part due to giving terrible interviews. GMs are very wary of people with attitude or mental problems, even more so after the Jovan Belcher incident. The fact that Te'o is clearly still lying saying that he was a victim of his own hoax makes it so much worse.

    And Te'o is hardly the missing piece of a championship team. If he was the next Lawrence Taylor, somebody would take the gamble early. But he's basically a run of the mill tackle machine MLB. This is really going to hurt him. Millions of dollars and maybe an NFL dream just went out the window.

    ESPN will too. It is very obvious that Te'o is lying to cover up his lie. He is a pathological liar that is trying to shift the blame to his accomplice. Te'o has made several conflicting statements that show he is obviously behind it. He has made statements about meeting her in person and even today mentioned talking to her on the phone. How? The "inventor" of this hoax, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, is both male and a close friend of Te'o. Did he just find some random girl to trick Te'o with?

    I have never seen a prospect screw himself harder for less.

    Couldn't disagree more with this entire post. New facts are coming to light by the hour. How about waiting for all the facts before crucifying the guy? You may be right when all is said and done but it's far from the certainty you're making it out to be at this point.

  • This whole story is cracking me up.


    Dude is coming off looking REAL bad right now.


    I keep picturing him talking to himself on the phone with a blonde wig on, putting on a nice shade of red lipstick. Guy is nuts.

    Yeah.. ridiculous projection to have a suspended Michael Floyd in the middle rounds one whole year before he entered the draft after yet another DUI.

    But feel free to get involved in this thread. It's not like you embarrassed yourself in the BCS Championship discussion....

    Oh... wait...
