  • Hear that? That's the sound of millions o' dollars slipping through his hands as he just fell on draft boards (if true).

    Maybe to #25?

  • Just read the whole thing.

    There is a weird relationship between him and Tuiasosopo. How weird? IDK, but that is some strange stuff to lie about.

  • I have never witnessed this before so this is a very serious question that I have...

    How do fake dead girlfriends affect a player's draft stock?

    It HAS to make him slide, maybe altogether, on draft boards. As a mentally ill person, I'm even concerned.

    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).
