If this is true karma got him, he played like **** and missed so many tackles in the championship game.
Notre Dame has released a statement.
So they knew BEFORE the BCS NC game and it took a Deadspin story before they release a statement??
Crazy stuff. Glad he didn't win the Heisman. I wonder how many of the awards he did win were off of the sympathy vote.
The BCS deserves this story and it's fraudulent Golden Child. I would not be surprised if the alums had a strategic date to release this, such as the day when Obama unveils his proposals for gun control.
Good riddance to bad rubbish.
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 Teo 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. "
And of course ESPN is trying to portray him as the victim. B*tch, please.
I wonder if the "I didn't know it was a hoax" hoax will get any traction.
ESPN is running with it and portraying him as a victim. But most everyone else is seeing through the last bit of BS.
I think he's got Connor Barwin's support if he wants to come clean .
my favorite tweet about this so far>>> These Te'o jokes are all very funny but let's all try and remember that a person who never existed is dead.
Him knowing the story was about to break probably explains him skipping the senior bowl
Crazy stuff. If he didn't Kbps it was a hoax I have to question his sensibilities. I wouldn't call him stupid, but maybe he's a ditto head?
We had the Throwin Samoan and now the Lyin Hawaiian .
Gullible, naive, most likely a virgin. I feel bad for the guy.
