- Heisman trophy finalist
- Arguably college football's most famous brand
- On a team that was in the national title game
- Stories of his girlfriend dying had been all over major news networks
- The fact that Deadspin broke the story and no other network had a clue about this mess
- A supposed "catfish" story where he was supposedly duped by his own friend
- Notre Dame's athletic director not only fully supporting him publicly, but also crying about it
- All of the inconsistencies in this story that still don't make sense
It would've been one thing if this was some random player from Florida State who people didn't know that well. But outside of Johnny Manziel, there's no other player who had the spotlight in college football this year like he did. When all is said and done, it could turn out that he purposely perpetuated this myth in order to gain sympathy votes for the Heisman.
That's why people care.
Maybe Teo and that Washington/Raiders QB are gay with each other.
I think Teo told this Ron guy that he didn't want to be with him anymore. So Ron said, if I can't have him, nobody will.
What Manti is gay??? That would be cray cray!!!
Brett McMurphy @McMurphyESPN
RT @SportsCenter: Former ND teammate tells ESPN's Bob Holtzman many players knew Lennay Kekua wasn't really Manti Te'o's girlfriend
So, either the Irish were all in on it or they were ALL catfishing Te'o.
Either angle delivers.
I'm really surprised "Reba's" (Lennay's picture) true identity has not come out yet. Obviously she had a facebook, you would think one of her friends would have been tweeting about it or something.
Edit: I just want to see more pics of her. She must have 3 tits--why are all these NFL players falling for [pictures of] her??
**** and played a part in all this mess. He's just upset now because it blew up in his face. If he were innocent he would have come out on national television to answer questions and clear the air.
This isn't going to go away. People will want answers.

I bet he is gay....
travvyb: "Te'o stole my girlfriend."
I think freek over thought it.
The video in post #32, from Vodnik, mentions her older brother? Who did he get a call from if not her brother? Was he lying about the phone call? Was it Ron? How did he not know it was Ron? I want answers!
I don't think anyone had mentioned that Manti might like the men!
Besides that, Deadspin needs to investigate the **** allegations of Lizzy Seeberg!
If anything I hope Anonymous gets on this a la Steubenville Football!
Vermont has been plotting the takeover of the world for years, I expect them to be evil.
In before HOF.
Something about the Pac-12/10 I guess.
Anyone remember this one?
3. Victoria's Secret
School: UC Berkeley
The New York Times compared this prank to a "military-style psychological operation" and named it one of the most notable ideas of 2006 -- though, I doubt the UC Rally Committee referred to The Art of War or took notes during History 101's Genghis Khan lecture.
When USC's star basketball player, Gabe Pruitt, hit the floor for a crucial game against U.C. Berkeley last year, he brought more baggage than he even knew. In the fashion of Dateline's "To Catch a Predator," Cal fans had posed as an internet-honey from UCLA, aptly named Victoria, who Pruitt agreed to meet once he returned to L.A. -- or so we can assume from Pruitt's words: "I want to c u so bad." Like many online relationships, this one didn't go well: Cal fans broke the bad news mid-game, chanting "Victoria" and reciting his digits throughout the game. Pruitt shot 3 for 13 and USC lost by 11 points.
