I found this post over on Bucknuts. At first it seemed kind of crazy, but after I thought about it a little --- it kind of made sense.
"OK, this is my theory that I have come up with after reading interviews with Teo and press releases. Manti is Gay. Think about it. He is the star MLB for one of the biggest college football teams in the nation, and is the Captain. He knew he was going to have girls asking him out and throwing themselves at him. So, during his Freshman year at the school he comes up with the perfect excuse as to why he isn't nailing chicks, he has a "girlfriend" that he is faithful to. Then, 3 years later, he is in the running for the Heisman and Notre Dame is playing well and may make it to the BCS Title game. He knows the press will want to meet "her". So he needed to think of something so she "died". Perfect excuse as to why she isn't around. Then when he gets caught he is the "victim" in a hoax.
Manti is Gay. He did all of that to cover that up."
"nailed it. that tuiasasopo dude is his boyfriend. "
