Five bows to you Sir for reporting that gem to us! How in the HELL does Howdy-Doody looking kid like him get a girl that looks like her?
D-14...........Being the qb on a back to back national championship team and a next year high round pick provides the ultimate aphrodisiac-money.
Speaking of money, Kevin Minter, his agent, and his girlfriend would like to thank Te'o and his imaginary girlfriend for throwing some their way as well.

Yeah, I know. I just wanna hate on 'em is all.
I hate dem Gump Bastards. They will go unchecked for years to come. saban is a mini Belichick and it don't matter how much they play the game because they are gonna get a bye for winning. Belichick and his Spygate is what I am referring to of course.
unbelievable story hear fellas.......they'll be doing a 30 for 30 on this one in about 10 years......wow
I remember thinking when he was first getting seriously mentioned as a Heisman candidate that part of the appeal had to do with him carrying on in spite of the tragedies he had to deal with in the middle of the season. And now to hear this...it is hard to believe that he could be deceived for this long. If there is a record of him saying he actually met her and talked to her on the phone, then it seems pretty clear that he was in on it...and that is very sad.
ND needs to start checking their facts before putting something out there for the Media. Remember when newly named Coach George O' Leary was fired for lying on his Résumé about his education or lack thereof?
Crazy stuff, I tell you. That young man needs some serious psychological help IMO.
I never wanted ND to win anyway. Damn Roll Tide! I always say.

after reading the story again, the most telling he was in on it was his father saying she would go to Hawaii when Manti was home and they would meet then. He would have had to tell his dad this.
Yeah he either lied to his dad and was getting played for three years by someone online, or he was lying about it all.
I think he was in on it. I can't believe a kid that popular would go three years without ever seeing his GF or even having pictures sent to him. Then the whole death/funeral scenario and the details that have come out makes this way too unbelievable.

The only thing that gets me is that emotional look he has everytime he talked about her. Almost tearing up everytime. If not for that I would be 100% he was in on it. This guy needs Hollywood more than football. He is one hell of an actor if he was in on it.
Don't know how far the investigation or checks will be on this news development but this kid will raise some real questions about his future when the draft opens.
Come on, Minter.
I can't speak to all interviews but the only time I saw him interviewed about this was right after he had (truly) lost his grandmother...so at least at that time i am sure there was indeed some real emotion...but I now believe it was all for his grandmother and not the fake girlfriend.
