Statement by ND is that Teo was the victim of a 'hoax' concerning the details of this fictitious woman....and that they knew about this back in December.

If he was the victim of a hoax and didn't know it, what about all those times he lied about saying they spoke on the phone all the time??!

Ah, he fell for the old dead girlfriend gag.


This is ridiculous. I'm sure Te'o and ND will play dumb about this whole thing.

They already have. Manti and ND are claiming that they conducted an investigation and discovered that his GF's death was all a hoax on Dec. 26th, and they were the victims.

Yea, of course we know the death was fake because the girl NEVER existed! lol

That still doesn't explain the fabricated story of how he met her for the first time on the field at the Stanford game in 2009 and they exchanged numbers.

This is too funny.

Manti's lie has drawn attention away from Lance Armstrong. He must be estatic.

Of course he was in on it.

1. Who was he talking to on the phone 8 hrs a night?

2. How about this: Nov. 28, 2009: Te'o and Kekua meet after Stanford's 45-38 victory over Notre Dame in Palo Alto, according to the South Bend Tribune: "Their stares got pleasantly tangled, then Manti Te'o extended his hand to the stranger with a warm smile and soulful eyes." Kekua, a Stanford student, swaps phone numbers with Te'o.

3. And this: (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."

Sounds to me like even his dad may have been in on it.

And all the stories that ran in the South Bend Tribune about them? If they weren't accurate and true, wouldn't someone have said something?

And Notre Dame found out about the hoax December 26th, but let Te'o continue to talk about the "death" after New Year's? That puts the university at fault to a degree too.

And notice ESPN started the "victim" thing after Notre Dame's statement, as if it was 100% fact. They ignored all of the red flags and immediately said Notre Dame and Te'o were victims. Looks like ESPN wants to keep Notre Dame holier than every other university.


Looks to me like Te'o, his friends that started this hoax, Notre Dame and ESPN are all worthless pieces of trash.

No, because he'll still be the victim until after the draft. He'll get picked in the first round, top 15, sign his contract and the truth will come out showing he was behind this lie.

This is quite comical to think he thought someone would never find out.

It's still possible he got duped, and the real girl he met at Stanford was pulling an elaborate hoax on him, using him for trips to Hawaii, etc. He'd just have to be an incredibly trusting person, and her an incredibly ****ed up one who finally wanted to call it quits so made up some **** about leukemia and her dying.


I'd still bet on it being a bad publicity stunt, but if he really did get duped, this would make a sad story even sadder.

If he actually was tricked, then he has problems beyond this. Naivete is one thing. But that goes beyond anything I can fathom.

Talked on the phone for 8 hours while she was in the hospital... To END a prank like this, would you rack up that big of a phone bill? No way. It was a lie. Period.

There's no way anyone is that stupid... I hope. He'd have to be the most 'naive' athlete on the planet.

The only way I could see him as the victim of a catfish is if he found out early it was a hoax and made up the death part himself to avoid the embarrassment. That make sense? He gets played, figures it out, to avoid embarrassment from his family and friends, he said she died. I just wouldnt buy the idea that someone played him, racked up phone and power bills for that long for a trip to Hawaii. Totally not worth it.

Quality troll job by Te'o, obviously leukimia isn't something to joke about, but if he wants to take advantage of ESPN sensationalizing everything good for him.
