    Already read it.

    Manti is probably gay, is what I'll take away from it.

    I just wonder if anyone else on the team knew this was a lie, or what was he telling them.
    Wonder what he has to say, now.

    That article seems a little open ended... Is it possible that he used a different name to protect her and her families identity throughout the process? The article just doesn't come to any real conclusion. Its more than odd, but really nothing is proven except that the name in all reports leads nowhere. What was his motivation behind the whole conspiracy?

    The motivation, according to the article, was to get him some sympathy for Heisman votes. And perhaps cover up a gay relationship with Tuiosasopo.

    A LOT of questions. I understand why they didn't want to release the real name of the real woman who's pictures were used. No comment from T'eo or teammates. I'm sure there is more to come, as this was only the "reveal", but it doesn't make much sense, at this point.

    "Lennay's" Twitter account used a picture of a different girl given only to Tuiasosopo at his request? Pretty clear that both he and Te'o were in on it together. As for the motivation, it could be anything (fame, gay coverup, other random reason etc.) but the article is pretty clear that she's fictional. Absolutely crazy story for an "intangibles" guy, his stock could absolutely nosedive.

    How would he be the victim of a hoax? Some girl acted like she was in a car crash and had leukemia?

    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.

    Yeah, no one is going to believe that crap given that Te'o said he met her in person multiple times yet the Twitter picture she had was of someone else. Time for him to own up.

    What a fuck.

    He apparently met her over the summers in Hawaii and talked to her on the phone for hours every night. Dude's draft stock plummeted during the National Championship game, and now his image is in free fall. Sucks to suck.

    So, they're going to claim that this guy got "Catfished"?
    Not buying that.
