At this point I don't even care what him or Tuiasosopo have to say any more. Tuiasosopo's could say Te'o had nothing to do with it all, which may be true (at first, at least), but the timeline just doesn't add up.


I still think he ends up going in the 1st round. So this won't hurt him that much.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist by any means, but I can't help but not think how incredibly convenient it was for so many "confessions" to occur a single day after Te'o claimed to have been catfished and ultimately support his claim. And now, with all of that said, agrees to then be interviewed.

I'd hope the Lions don't take him, I certainly don't want him.

I just watched the movie "Catfish."

It was actually pretty good and didn't end as disturbingly as I feared.

Manti Te'o confirms the fact that Tusosospo (however you spell it) apologized in a Twitter message for playing this hoax on him.

This fills in line with the supposed "Twitter messages" between Te'o and Tusosospo who were talking and some claimed they were both in on it.

According to him he wasn't sure it was a sure fire hoax until later, as he was given a "story" that Kekua needed to lay low or something around these lines.

This of course raises more questions then it does answers, and as he is being treated with a lawyer type of personnel, this wouldn't jive if it wasn't true.

He also confirmed that he lied to his father about meeting Kekua, which is why his dad said that.

I like Jeremy Schaap, but he's better as an reporter than explaining a 2 hour conversation he had with a guy who had a fake gf


And yeah, I'm still just as confused before. There are too many holes right now that just make it hard for me to believe he thought this girl was real up until like 2 days ago.

Jeremy is the freaking man. He's doing his best in this confusing situation.

The evidence here is that Tososopo could face some serious charges if this is true. And he did indeed apologize as Manti stated, it would fit in with everything of the reported Twitter communications.

I'm still confused as to why Te'o kept talking about this fake gf like she was real after December 6th, when he supposedly found out about the hoax.

Again, if he said it was a hoax and released it then Notre Dame would've had no chance in the National Championship at all. The scandal would be horrid.

He didn't know they would have virtually no chance anyways or would've announced it. He was planning on getting the investigation FIRST and announcing it after the National Championship.

Te'o is hoping this simmers down and goes away because of that "interview" with Schaap? Good luck with that.

Just watching that you would think Schaap has some sort of connection to ND or CAA. That was one hell of a job he did kissing ass and providing very little information. Basically, Te'o is a great guy and Schaap believed every word he said. Listening to him explain why Te'o refused to do an on camera interview was pretty funny as well.

Still have no idea what to believe.

I'm sorry, but that doesn't seem to be a good excuse to continually play up the story, even when he wasn't prompted too at times.

Also, what about his teammates saying that they knew that the "gf" wasn't really a gf? And why did he lie to his parents about actually meeting with her? Way too many questions here for me to believe him completely, and him pulling this stunt for the interview isn't helping. Why not just go on-camera? Why involve a lawyer in this?

The lawyer is there to keep him from legal trouble, not to keep him from lying.

It has been proven/admitted that Manti Te'o has lied over multiple points in this whole saga. To start believing everything he is saying now would require you to be more naive than he wants you to believe he was.

You will arrive at the same conclusion if you ignore the fact that Te'o is a liar as long as what he says matches Notre Dame's company line.

Did I ever say that I believed everything he said?

He did say some knowledgeable things though, as he tried to Skype/Facetime with her but it was just a black box (no webcam plugged in). He also confirmed what was going on when people on Twitter accused him of being in the conspiracy when he was tweeting with the alleged person who did all this.

When in reality the person was apparently apologizing. Te'o wouldn't have created an unnecessary question about her "laying low" if it would be to percieved like this. When something leaks that makes virtually no sense and the person is under supervision, it's hard to believe they made it up out of nowhere. They are not grasping for straws here, they could've gone with initial reports but they took the story a whole new direction.

All those things are proven to be facts with other evidence. I'm not defending the guy, we still don't know if the person was with Te'o, but there is enough evidence to hinder a doubt.

You seem to have alot of bias here against Notre Dame so you probably should make that clear.

There is enough merit to what he said, you don't need to spew your opinions and accuse just because you don't like the school and the person plays for them.

Bias? You do know he could say the same thing about you, right?

I was in between and now i'm leaning more in Te'os favor.

I don't just automatically jump to one side and spew my opinion because I like/dislike Notre Dame.

That is biasm. I am not bias. Nice try though.

Judging by just peeking over at a Notre Dame message board, they are certainly believing the crap he is shoveling.

Gotta love how he waits until early Saturday morning to "break his silence"

This kid is a straight up phony.

I think he exaggerated his relationship with "her" to the media, but I have a hard time believing he was in on the hoax and would come up with the idea that "she died" on the same day his grandmother passed. That seems far fetched he'd do that when he's dealing with the loss of his grandmother.
