Yeah, I'm jumping on the "he's gay" side of the fence.

He better just be telling the truth, because obviously is going to get tracked down by Deadspin.

I think He hatched a scheme with a friend, he got in too deep and couldn't get out (who would have thought he would be a Heisman finalist and the Irish would play for national championship), his friend blackmailed him, he reported it to Notre Dame.

He will continue to lie. If he admits it he may not even get drafted so he has nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Very good point.

This is really bad for Notre Dame. If Manti had no idea he's ****ed. If he did do it, he's probably not going to crack most NFL rosters in his lifetime.

The whole religion aspect plays into the intrigue. Even if he is gay, I am betting that he eventually admits he made her up for the publicity.

The motive... Attending a Catholic University and being a Mormon?

Gay is my thinking.

You guys actually believe he would be gay and make up his girlfriend DYING?

He would just say he had one. For real.

A quote from his father that seems to contradict his statement:
Quote:
"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.

Continuing a fake relationship would only make it harder to maintain, and worse in the long-run when people eventually find out. Plus... Parents really wanted to meet her.

Not to mention the great publicity he got from the fake death.

That's why the concept of the "beard" usually applies to real people who know/suspect their partner is gay but play along.

Given the easy availability of females who would adore him and feel extremely privileged to be his "girlfriend" even if all they got was hugs..it makes no sense to invent a girl.

Just for facts here,

The father of Manti Te'o claimed he never met her and were going to meet her at Senior Day in South Bend, before she passed away.

So please don't claim the family had anything to do with it.
