Still scratching my head over this.
Notre Dameo learned first of the death of his grandmother, Annette Santiago, and then of the death of his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua.
This story is insane! I mean I cannot fathom making up those lies and all those details.
Also, @rickmuscles gets the tweet of the day. "RT @lanceamstrong Big thanks to @mantiteo!"
Peace, Love, Toes in the Sand....
Can't believe the guy almost got the Heisman, he was in the race partially due to this story. Without the story no way he finishes #2, maybe not even a finalist.

Fabricated story for sympathy votes.
I'm only responsible for what I SAY, not for what YOU UNDERSTAND.
I know I voted him No. 2 in the Heisman Trophy balloting. Wish I had that vote to do over.
WOW he must have really wanted to win the heisman.
WOW if true...
He was either
A) punked "catfish" style and freaked on how to make it go away.
B) Both dudes are super douches.

it's hard to believe that you could get catfished that badly on that level. i suppose almost anything's possible, but that's a pretty elaborate prank to be one-sided.
I'm going with B myself until its proven otherwise considering MT's quoted elaborate details.
Stupid is as stupid does.
Yea i believe he was behind this whole thing. If he indeed was, then I hope it ruins him. That is BEYOND sick!!
DAMN IT FEELS GOOD 2B A HOGGG!!
He now says he was victim of hoax. My question is why in hell would the Heisman runner-up and star FB player at Notre Dame be messing with some girl online? If I was his age and star football player I would have been with as many women as possible during the time I was there and everyone of them would have been real.
Notre Dame responds to Deadspin story on hoax surrounding Manti Te'o.
Sorry not buying that at all. Too many loose ends. Like meeting her after playing against Stanford, and his dad saying they vacationed together.
Exactly and talking to her, her last words, exchanging numbers, hanging out with marquis former QB at Washington brother. This stuff is hilarious I love it. He ranked 35th in tackles and isn't half as good as media made him out to be.
Of course not. He is full of crap and the AD who is defending him better hope he doesn't end up losing his job over this.
Yeah OK you should see this AD just keep trying to cover him up. I've watched most the press conference. He said when he said they "met" he meant online met lol
Yeah it's being said that potentially ND collected funds in through "charity" in her name .... that's more than an "oops" ....it's more like on shi**!
This whole deal is a cluster f$@& for ND
