If anything Ronaiah is gay and Manti is an idiot.

That looks about right now. For the people asking "why does it sound like a girl" it's likely voice manipulation software. I doubt he wouldn't be able to **** up after awhile.

I'm beginning to think that he actually is ... you don't make up a story, continue the hoax and deny it until the very end & then admit it at the very end ... he's nuttier than a fruit cake ... or he's truly the most gullible person in the world

The whole thing has gotten so stupid now. I'm done with it.

All I know is that Ronaiah deserves a serious beatdown.

Look, I don't want to draw black-and-white conclusions about Manti Te'o. But let's face it, the events that have taken place in the last 3 years and Te'o's subsequent explanation for them allow for only two possibilities. He is either the most incredibly naive and downright stupid person in America, or he is gay. Not surprisingly, Te'o is willing to portray himself as a complete fool that was just not intelligent enough to realize that for 3 years, the "girlfriend" he talked to on the phone for 6 hours a night was actually a man. It is incredibly difficult to believe that was an Academic All-American at Notre Dame, a school that (like Stanford) makes all potential athletes apply and be accepted through the Admissions office, just like every other potential student, could possibly be as downright unintelligent as Te'o effectively claims he was. Notre Dame's admission standards are so high and so uncompromising that it has hurt the performance of their football team in recent years. Te'o is not stupid. But, hey, there are plenty of NFL players that legitimately are. The alternative is not even fathomable in NFL culture. We may be in 2012, but the NFL is still in 1952 when it comes to the word "gay." It's a shame, but that is the culture. No potential NFL player is ever going to admit to being gay. They can't, not for the sake of their future career.

I still do believe that the whole "girlfriend" angle was originally created for the sake of publicity and attention. You would have to be extremely naive to believe that Te'o didn't garner significant Heisman consideration (and some votes) due to his performance while dealing with what was a remarkable tragedy. To lose your grandmother and your girlfriend within 6 hours of each other? The only thing more sad is that the journalistic integrity of sportswriters has fallen so far that they didn't even bother to look up this "girlfriend." Not one thought to ask Stanford about her or check the death records. Until Deadspin did it, of course. It almost worked out for Te'o; he almost won the Heisman. But man, the consequences were probably far greater than he intended.

Why bother telling the truth when ND fans will buy every new half-baked version Te'o is coming out with? It's easier for him to get away with stupid than with gay.

Because for the past year every time you watch sportscenter or a college ball game involving ND you are constantly having to listen to how perfect Te'o is.

Also the fact that people wanted to give him Heisman because he persevered through adversity, when in reality he isnt even close to the best defensive player in the country. Eddie Lacy just reestablished that notion.

You think he will go in the first, I think he will be lucky to be picked in the third. This guy has too many issues and he is not handling this whole situation very well.

Yup.

OT - Nobody has **** on Jadeveon Clowney, he's my pick for best defensive player in college.

It just takes one team to like a guy, the Broncos have already hinted that they would take him should he fall to 28. Ive heard some NFL sources say that they have drafted players with large criminal records, so this isnt even that bad. Ive heard others say, lie to my face and you wont be on our team. That being said, there are a few months before the draft and I am unsure how long stories like this can stay a secret.

Where there is smoke and I smell the winds of ****, regardless of what is actually going on here. Not to mention, teams spend immense resources on compiling information on these players. Any team who is interested in drafting Teo will certainly do everything in their power to find out what the real story is. I dont see him slipping out of the first round

I dont think he gets past New England.
Looking forward to the idiots on WEEI do a 180 on him if it happens.

Management really needs to consider how he will be received in the dressing room. Players are used to playing with guys who have criminal records, but they have the ability to keep to themselves and hide in the background. Te'o is a public face and a complete laughing stock. It'll be an issue raised from Day 1 and the media will pester fellow teammates about it. These dressing rooms are probably already laughing about the whole thing, imagine when he walks in.

I'm not sure if he is a criminal, but he has mental issues, which I wouldn't want around my locker room. But Tebow was a first rounder so you never know.

Does anyone know how this guy got on in Cleveland

Rex Ryan and the foot video didn't derail his career.

NEW YORK -- Dr. Phil McGraw says Manti Te'o was not involved in setting up the dead girlfriend hoax that became a sensation when it was exposed this month, and that the man who masterminded the scheme did so because he was "deeply, romantically" in love with the Notre Dame linebacker.
