PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Have to have time to get an iron clad story together.
Agreed, needs more time to sort out all the lies he and his family told. His duped story is about as real as his girlfriend was...
needs media and pr hazmat crew to come in and help.....
I was really looking forward to hearing Manti announcing that he was taking his talents to 4chan.
Must have thought that presser covered all the bases. /sarcasm
ESPN is reporting though that his fake dead girlfriend will sit down with Jeremy Schaap in hologram form.
If Denard Robinson isn't careful with spooning all that food into his mouth, he's going to end up lookin' like Whoopi Goldberg
I'm surprised that Te'o's so called 'Girlfriend' wasn't from Canada.
The Breakfast Club
BENDER: When have you ever gotten laid?
BRIAN: I've laid, lotsa times!
BENDER: Name one!
BRIAN: She lives in Canada, met her at Niagara Falls. You wouldn't know her.
WYATT: Well, what about your girl in Canada?
GARY (Anthony Michael Hall): She lives in Canada. She has no morals. I don't like that in a girl. Anyway, get to work.

SINCE we haven't had any more real evidence, just gonna continue theorizing down the "closet" theory path here:
ND is a catholic school, the Church is famously homophobic (this is a fact not a political statement. whether you think this is a good or bad thing is up to you not here to argue that).
ND finds out about Manti's beard/fake online gf stuff, and agrees to support him publically with the full weight of the AD behind him, IF he follows their narrative and claims he was 'scammed', since THE Catholic flagship school of America can't have its most visible representative coming out against church doctrine. Note: This could've happened at any point in the last season, not just since Dec 26 or w/e. They very well could've found out earlier and told him to keep up the public image for Heisman purposes, and said they'd have his back with the "scammed" excuse/backstory if it ever became public.
It became public yesterday, the pre-planned ND PR spin goes into full effect pushing the "naive kid got tricked" narrative.
Manti and his family go along with it until today, but now there's been a break(?), and he's canceling this planned ESPN PR interview that ND wanted him to do bc he's about to come clean.
Hey, its far fetched but possible. Everything in this story has been, "Far-fetched".
Stephen A. Smith absolutely obliterated Manti Te'o this morning on first take. I'm not crazy about the show but he rips him and his defenders to pieces.
4-6 seconds from point A to point B and when you get to point B, be pissed off
No one else has the audacity to call him out?
Instead of ESPN, Teo should break his version of this story where it belongs.....on Maury.
Shocking...considering that Jack Swarbrick's press conference revealed enough holes to sink the Titanic.
And as much emotion as my real girlfriend at the time had when we saw James Cameron's film in the theater. #tearjerker
BTW: Wasn't a collision with an iceberg that sunk the Titanic, from watching the movie, I can tell it was all that clog dancing on the bottom deck.
They must realize Jeremy Schapp would not toss him softballs, like Oprah did to Lance Armstrong.
