ND: "Lennay Kekua apparently ingratiated herself w/Manti & then conspired w/others to lead him believe she had tragically died of leukemia"
That doesn't even make sense. Lennay Kekua does not exist.
then why not tell ESPN before the bowl....
oh and Francessa is on it now, if you directv put on YES or wfan.com it is so comical
Notre Dame Statement: Manti Te’o
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.

This is so BS........he told the stories of the phone calls, they fell in love how?
He fell victim to the hoax, or he was the hoax?

So he's definitely a virgin to mourn so hard the death of his cybersex buddy. If one of my cybersex buddies dies I just remove her from the spank bank.
But didn't Te'o say he met her on a few occassions? No way he wasn't in on it.
This would've been so much better if he had won the Heisman.
Seriously. I hadn't heard anything about this girlfriend stuff until this thread but this is the weirdest story ever, right? He made up a dead girlfriend? WTF?
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
and people made a big deal of johnny football's instagram photos or whatever
ND's is straight up lying.
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."
Early 2012: Te'o and Kekua become a couple. They talk on the phone nightly, according to ESPN.
Te'o talks to Lennay nightly, "going to sleep while on the phone with her," according to Sports Illustrated. "When he woke up in the morning his phone would show an eight-hour call, and he would hear Lennay breathing on the other end of the line."
someone please find me an interview leading up to the championship game where Te'o mentions his dead gf
He clearly made up the calls/visits but I think he himself was probably fooled. If not, then he is probably gay and a lover with the dude. One of those 2 is probably correct!
Man, I hope he didn't buy 'her' a tow truck.
If this is a USC troll, that's got to be the best all time right?
@CRM_Stephen: Manti Te'o wasn't missing tackles in the National Championship, he was hugging his girlfriend.
So he's just gay right? That's the only reason I could think of that he would do something like this.
If you're gonna lie completely, you better make sure that there aren't NUMEROUS quotes referencing MEETING her and TALKING with her. How freakin stupid are we supposed to be? Honestly, if he is gay, he's 90000x better off coming out and acknowledging that as the reason why he created a false GF. That is at least plausible. This explanation is far from it.
Doesn't it say in that article that Te'o's dad said she visited with him in Hawaii a handful of times? Not sure how you "hoax" that. My bet is he's gay.
HoopheadVII: "Guess you won't say, "Sorry I'm a little off today" anytime again soon; Eaglesception is a bitch"
ALWAYS skype with a girl before you call her your girlfriend, guys
He could have just told that to his dad because he was ashamed to say that she was an online girlfriend he never met
Brian Kelly: Man that Lance Armstrong went from hero to villain quick.
Manti Te'Uh Oh: Yeah, he's always in the press though....
Kelly: Biggest heel turn evar?
Manti: Fuck that. Watch this....
