"It never crossed my mind." See, I can't shake this impression that Te'o never really cared all that much about this "girl" which means to me that he either was in on it or it just wasn't a big deal to him. And really, why should it? He's surrounded by many coeds who'd happily fulfill any desire he could have.

I think a lot of people struggle with the explanation of Te'o being hoaxed and then merely lying to cover up his embarrassment because he would have to be an emotionally stunted and stupid person at the same time to a degree regular people find hard to fathom.

And his public persona just seems too slick for that. In the interviews I've seen he's hitting the exact right buttons in a way that many of the former players on ESPN would struggle to execute. He's either a Forrest Gump type character or there's something sinister behind that facade.
