    Haha, that was my first thought as well. "His" statement included the word "retrospect," yeah I'm sure the kid knows a) what that means and b) what context to use it in. Ok. My second thought is that he is an emotional guy, somebody better out him on suicide watch.

    Think about the fact that his actual grandmother actually did die, and he used her death as a publicity tool by placing his fake girlfriend's death at the same time. At the time he should have been actually mourning his dead grandmother, he was expressing fake emotion over someone who never existed.

    I think the even bigger story is Notre Dame's degree of complicity in this fraud. They pimped Te'o for the Heisman like no other and this story was a huge catalyst for that campaign.

    what is really sad about this, is that te'o is pretending he met a girl on twitter.

    back when i was in college, you would pretend you met in real life.

    The real shit hasnt hit the fan yet. The media will dig up every story and quote on this.
    Much of this story remains strange, murky and unclear. But Notre Dame lineman Grant Patton told me this evening that he witnessed Te’o receiving a phone call telling him that his girlfriend had died.

    “He was distraught,” Patton said. “It was pain personified.”

    Patton said the Fighting Irish were in their locker room before practice on Wednesday, Sept. 12, when Te’o received the call.

    “You could see that he was hurting,” Patton said. “The whole locker room just went silent. At that moment I was just praying for him.”

    Patton said that Te’o broke down and ran out of the locker room, and several other defensive players followed. Patton, who attended St. Xavier High School, said his conversations with Te’o were usually focused on football.

    first he pretended that he met her in real life. Remember he said he met her after the stanford game. So either he was coming up with lies on the fly and couldnt keep them straight or he was lying to cover up the fact that he had started a relationship via twitter. Either way he is lying to everyone

    From Twitter...where did he send the white roses?!!?

    Q. No one would question how any person grieves, but what went into your decision or did you think at all about going back for your girlfriend's service? I understand you had a game that day but what was the decision there?

    Manti Te'o: You know, I really wanted to see her. I really wanted to see her. But I knew that she made me promise, you know one day she made me promise that, she said, "Babe, if anything happens to me, you promise that you'll still stay over there and that you'll play and that you'll honor me through the way you play, and know that I would rather have you there." And just make sure that all she wanted was some white roses. White is her favorite color. So she just wanted some white roses and that's all she asked for. So I sent her roses and sent her two picks (interceptions) along with that, so that was good.

    Looking back at all the quotes and the video, you can tell by body language is he lying. Every time he mentioned his dead GF he looked away from interviewer and shrugged his shoulders.

    yes. i was poking fun of the fact that he's hinging his story (now) on the fact that he met her on twitter (and i guess, never met in real life).

    and on that note, i will now mourn for all of my online friends who have passed.

    Te'o had online girlfriend - she was put up to it by Te'o's male family friend. After getting him on the hook, she started to be entertained by it. Maybe she even kind of liked him, too, which helped her to put in the phone/internet legwork. Te'o made up a story about how they met, meeting in person, etc., b/c that is less embarrassing than having an online girlfriend. He couldn't hide her existence b/c 1) his twitter page is public, and 2) he's relatively famous.

    Te'o starts to get really famous, so the hoaxers want out. Maybe there are media requests to talk to her. Instead of an online break-up (where the media could still theoretically track her down), the hoaxers panic and fake her death, instead, and manage to talk Te'o out of attending the funeral. This isn't as difficult as you'd think since he's never actually met her in person before and would have been uncomfortable meeting people he didn't know.

    I don't think he was in on it, but I think he's as emotionally dumb/sheltered as a person can be. That made him an easy/funny mark.

    "But I know that I'll see them again one day." I'm sure he was talking about a different them.

    It's like some of you guys never knew any Mormon dudes in college. It's entirely believable to me that he was duped.

    How could he then later say on Twitter that her "sister" was the "realist" people he knew then?!?!

    Te'o is the dumbest smart person on the planet then.

    His dad claimed she came to Hawaii a few times and hung out with Manti. Manti is covering something up. No doubt.

    They could have skyped. She'd only need to look pretty close to the original picture for it to fly with him. And if Te'o was a little Collin Klein-ish when it comes to women (and by all appearances, he probably is), of course he's going to be "in love" with the first girl he has any meaningful conversation with. My guess is his entire life prior to meeting that girl was about church, family, and football and very little else.

    He was a lonely Mormon guy living in South Bend, Indiana. If the original girl was faking the whole thing, she was probably laughing about it / talking about it with at least one friend. Then the friend got to impersonate the girlfriend's sister.
