This is the goddamn funniest thing I have seen in a loooooooooong time! Great source material for jabs.
@michaelhayes: You know what was a good hoax? Ranking Notre Dame #2 in college football and letting them compete in the BCS title game.
Manti Te'o wasn't missing tackles in the National Championship, he was hugging his girlfriend.
@ObliviousNFLRef: Don't worry Manti, Ray Lewis killed a real person and people still love him

WHOA. I am no longer the most famous Mormon to invent an always-suspiciously-absent "girlfriend" in college.
Manti Te'o, huge, huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge fan of Weekend At Bernie's.
From Notre Dame:
"On Dec. 26, Notre Dame coaches were informed by Manti Te’o and his parents that Manti had been the victim of what appears to be a hoax in which someone using the fictitious name Lennay Kekua apparently ingratiated herself with Manti and then conspired with others to lead him to believe she had tragically died of leukemia. The University immediately initiated an investigation to assist Manti and his family in discovering the motive for and nature of this hoax. While the proper authorities will continue to investigate this troubling matter, this appears to be, at a minimum, a sad and very cruel deception to entertain its perpetrators. "
