If it is a hoax then I sure hope we don't draft this headcase.

There's a rumor that he's gay and that was one of the "real" reasons he didn't go to BYU.

If this is true, no NFL team will touch the guy and rightly so.

If true that is F'ed up.

Some thing about this kid screams Ray Maualuga to me, over hyped and slightly crazy.

After watching his play in the BCS Championship I don't know if he will pan out. Doesn't seem worth a 1st round pick. Could have been a bad day but something seemed Tebow type fishy about this guy all year.

If this was all a hoax, it should be easy to prove that Lennay never existed.

Compelling evidence:

Quote:
Manti Te'o did lose his grandmother this past fall. Annette Santiago died on Sept. 11, 2012, at the age of 72, according to Social Security Administration records in Nexis. But there is no SSA record there of the death of Lennay Marie Kekua, that day or any other. Her passing, recounted so many times in the national media, produces no obituary or funeral announcement in Nexis, and no mention in the Stanford student newspaper.

Nor is there any report of a severe auto accident involving a Lennay Kekua. Background checks turn up nothing. The Stanford registrar's office has no record that a Lennay Kekua ever enrolled. There is no record of her birth in the news
. Outside of a few Twitter and Instagram accounts, there's no online evidence that Lennay Kekua ever existed.

The photographs identified as Kekua—in online tributes and on TV news reports—are pictures from the social-media accounts of a 22-year-old California woman who is not named Lennay Kekua. She is not a Stanford graduate; she has not been in a severe car accident; and she does not have leukemia. And she has never met Manti Te'o.

....And he loved his late maternal grandmother, Annette Santiago. (Here's her obituary.)

Notre Dame Statement: Manti Te’o

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.

So did he have an exlusively online relationship with her?

My wife is always watching this show called "Catfish" which has nothing to do with catfish at all, but is about how normal (supposedly) people have these extensive relationships people online who are not who they are pretending to be.

Yah, I read it. The thing is there will need to be some more investigation because this is a serious allegation, no? I'm thinking another news agency will have to confirm the story, as will Notre Dame. One interwebz story by deadspin does not make it true IMHO.

The sheer quantity of falsehoods about Manti's relationship with Lennay makes that friend, and another relative of Ronaiah's, believe Te'o had to know the truth. Mostly, though, the friend simply couldn't believe that Te'o would be stupid enough—or Ronaiah Tuiasosopo clever enough—to sustain the relationship for nearly a year.
Seems likely Te'o was very much in on this, saw it could get out, came up with a catfishing cover and went to ND with it, and ND had this release ready for when it broke. Not sure they had planned, though, for the detail and heft of the Deadspin evidence, as reading the full article makes it really hard to believe the "Te'o got tricked" storyline.

I saw the movie Catfish, did they make it into a TV show too?

It was a pretty good documentary. They got duped into believing an artist was this young girl or something and they surprised her with a visit an went to see her and it was a middleaged woman who kept lieing to them then changing the lie.

I think in the end they were still friendly to each other but it was all kinda odd. They started out making a documentary about one thing and then it morphed into something they weren't expecting.

It looks like a major Catholic institution might be trying to cover up misdeeds by one of its public figures? Hard to fathom, I know.
