Long, but very interesting IMO.
Notre Dameo learned first of the death of his grandmother, Annette Santiago, and then of the death of his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua.
Your team. All the time.
Another bogus story by the awesome Pete Thamel
"Above anything else, I hate to lose." -- Jackie Robinson
If this is true, there's going to be a huge storm brewing
I don't always post but when I do, I try to make things interesting
Whoa. I don't know what to say.
Notre Dame statement:
"On Dec. 26, Notre Dame coaches were informed by Manti Te’o and his parents that Manti had been the victim of what appears to be a hoax in which someone using the fictitious name Lennay Kekua apparently ingratiated herself with Manti and then conspired with others to lead him to believe she had tragically died of leukemia. The University immediately initiated an investigation to assist Manti and his family in discovering the motive for and nature of this hoax. While the proper authorities will continue to investigate this troubling matter, this appears to be, at a minimum, a sad and very cruel deception to entertain its perpetrators."
More questions than answers for me.
Agreed Kevin. There are so many layers to this and so many questions that can't seem to answered.
^ I fel same way. This is beyond shocking.
Believe half of what you see, none of what you hear.
ND statement is a joke. All a ploy to gain Heisman publicity. Despicable.
How come this was not covered in the two hour special they did on Te'o and notre dame football!!? I can't believe they left this out. It was a good piece on Te'o and notre dame either way. I think it was called "UK vs notre Dame basketball" as told by Richard Vitale. Real inspirational story!

Sorry, I've made this joke before, but that damn game and how it was commentated still pisses me off to no f?!&@&ing end
He was obviously in on it or ashamed to have an internet girlfriend (I know I would be) b/c he made up his own stories about being with her. If he was in on it... Was it for 1. publicity or 2. to cover something else up? Comments on deadspin have a theory this was to hide sexual orientation from family and friends.
It's about to be on espnnews, and notre dame is having a presser at 8!!! Weird
One thing that we should all learn - fans, sportswriters, etc. - from the past year or so is to stop putting coaches and athletes on pedestals and deifying them. On all levels. None of us really KNOW them at all, who they are, what they are capable of, what they may or may not be hiding yet we assume things about them because they are good at what they do. It's been proven time and again how flawed a concept that is, whether it be the Te'o situation, the Penn State stuff, players taking extra benefits, coaches lying about jobs, Lance Armstrong and other PEDs users, administrators and coaches having affairs, etc. The sooner we all stop treating these people as if they're superhuman the better of we'll all probably be, IMHO.

That awkward moment when he asked her to skype.
