Either way he cannot claim to be 100% innocent.
    Who cares? If he legitimately thought she died, and found out on December 6th that she never existed, any rational person would've handled it the way he did. Who would go to the media out of the blue and say what really happened at that point? It's extremely embarrassing.

    I think that "criminal" guy is just trying to get a rise out of people or make a point.

    We really don't know if it will affect his draft position because all of the details are yet to emerge. This is the only thing I do know. If he does slip into the later portions of the 1st round and NE drafts him, Billy B will be praised for yet another "genius" move. However, if the Bills trade up from the 2nd round to get in front of NE and draft Te'o late in the first, we will be criticized and people will wonder about such a move to bring in a controversial distraction.

    THAT I am 100% certain of.

    How do you explain him meeting her after the Stanford game and her coming out and meeting his parents? There is still a lot of unanswered questions.

    Who said anything about Stanford? He said that she saw him his sophomore year at the USC game, exact words "she saw me" which implied they met but was probably a fabrication based on what he was told by "Lennay". Pretty consistent with what we know about him feeling awkward about the exclusively online nature of the relationship and embellishing his story. Hey, I don't see you admitting to being in an online relationship, what are you hiding?

    the guy doesn't have enough upstairs to handle this kind of media pressure, he's well less than a simple lad

    good thing he didn't have to face a real team until 42-14

    New reports are coming out that the hoax perpetrator had two cousins in on it, and Manti was too embarrassed to tell his dad that he had never met the girlfriend
    Sounds just like a lonely Hawaiin kid to me

    Also, who does have enough upstairs to handle this kind of media pressure? The president...maybe

    No one said Manti was a rocket scientist or Will Hunting, he's a football player

    As for not facing a real team-look at Stanford, Miami, Oklahoma, USC-kinda, Michigan. All these teams have won multiple National Championships my friend

    I'm still trying to wrap my mind how someone could be so stupid. He never once asked to skype with the girl? He sent flowers to a random address, and never followed up about the funeral home or cemetery? She flatlined numerous times after the car accident and he never once thought to fly over there? They arranged to meet and everytime she flaked out and Ronaiah showed up instead? Now they're reporting he still held out hope she was real until the story broke this week!

    Dude makes McKelvin look like the second coming of Niels Bohr and Einstein rolled into one.
