It was TOO good a story. I suspect the media just wanted to believe it and that produces laziness.

I am glad this was a hoax.

It means someone didn't lose their daughter.

So Te'o is now the victim according to #NotreDame. It's funny ND fans wonder why their school is so hated.


Jeff Svoboda @JeffSvoboda
Between Declan Sullivan (sadly real), the sexual assault story (sadly real) and this Te'o news ... it's been a hell of a few years at ND

This is why the ND statement makes no sense.

If you thought Notre Dame's performance against Alabama was bad, just imagine if Te'o did win the Heisman AND this story turns out to be true.

We should have known something was up when Manti Te'o claimed to have met somebody who liked Notre Dame and wasn’t completely intolerable.

Wait so how was Te'o a 'victim of a hoax' if he himself said he went to visit her?

"They started out as just friends," Brian Te'o said. "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. But within the last year, they became a couple.

How can he have been the victim if his dad claims she travelled to Hawaii and spent time with him?

This **** is weird.

I'm trying to come up with a theory on how Te'o was a victim here. Best I've got: he met a girl online. She catfished him, but he thought it was a legitimate relationship. Rather than admit that he had an online girlfriend, which has a huge social stigma, he told the media some story about how they met at that Stanford-ND game. He threw in more details about meeting in person for the same reason. Eventually, the girl or whoever was pretending to be her, killed herself off for whatever reason. Te'o believed his online girlfriend was dead and told everyone, then the whole thing blew up in his face.

My big problem with the theory is that it's implausible that Te'o wouldn't have suspected something was up at any point here. For this theory to work, he must have dated this girl for three years without meeting her, which I can't believe is true. On top of that, the connection between Tuiasosopo and Teo and Tuiasosopo and the girl used for the online pictures complicates it.

A lie ain't the other side of a story. It's just a lie.
