This is unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable.
POTW 11/9 to 11/15/2010
Wow I hate to even think how odd and embarrassing this is for Notre Dame, regardless of what happened, if this is (and it now appears to have been confirmed to be) a hoax.
Weird. Very weird. But hey, if it helped us win 12 games this year and we don't lose recruits..... ??

Please don't compare Manti Te'o to Hitler. Thanks.
Even this explanation doesn't make sense. Not meant towards you, Wes, but the whole situation.
3 time POTW
It would explain why Te'o has dropped off the map for a while. Finding out his gf was a hoax would be something very difficult to deal with. If a real person died, his faith would help him through it, but people lying to you willfully for their entertainment? I just hope Te'o doesn't lose faith in humanity after this stunt.
This is just unbelievable. Even if it was a hoax he knew nothing about i have questions on how he could portray it off as the love of his life like he said, and if he never met her, etc. This makes him look bad and now ND also if they have known since the 26th of DEC. Freakin unbelievable. Well we are going to get slammed by the national media now, buckle up.

There is never a good one.
I may not be pretty, but I'm fast.....
POTW 1/31/11 - 2/6/11
I'd be curious as to when the writer's of this article were checking in to this story. Would really stink if it was around the time that the Te'o family contacted ND. Could the Te'o family have figured out someone figured out their hoax? I hope Im wrong.
It's not his fault fellas, this was an elaborate scheme by some really evil people. Manti is the victim here.
Sorry but I'm not buying it!!! How does someone have a girlfriend that Manti led everyone to believe he cared about deeply and him not know her?? Come on folks this is by far and away the weirdest most screwed up story I've ever tried to make sense of?? So they never talked on the phone ?? I'm confused ...
I'd rather not assume it was "their" hoax. Who said the Te'o family did this?
Like I said, I hope I'm wrong....Very bizarre story with a lot of supposed T'eo aquaintances.
This is just downright bizzare, did all the team know about this when the University was informed?
True life drama!

I just don't understand where the Te'o family was in on this. For all we know Teo's friend running these twitter accounts had a friend who was a girl that would talk to Te'o on the phone. I have no idea what kind of girl would want to do that in deception every night, but we don't know anything yet.
It doesn't make sense for him to be involved, he had to know it would get out and why would he trash his family?
2 time POTW winner on some dates I can't remember from 2yrs ago at BNG,
POTW: 1/3/11- 1/9/11, 6/20/11-6/26/11
Yeah, guessing you never saw the movie and I could give a s*** if you did. Just do me a favor a point out where it was I compared Teo to Hitler. Thanks though dip****.
We will have to wait and see. Te'o himself has made some very interesting claims in stories about this person, so it seems a little off that he was completely fooled by this. We shall see. One thing for sure, the press loves this story and they will begin turning over the rocks now.
Also, how in the world does ND sit on this story until Deadspin breaks it. They needed to get out in front of it!! Epic fail!!!
3 time POTW;
People are saying it was for publicity. Why would he need publicity? He was going to be a 1st round draft pick last year and will be this year. If he knew there is no possible way he could get up at that pep rally and speak like that with tears. Teo has been genuine guy all four years he has been at ND. There is no need for Teo to create this fake situation that is why there is no way he knew about it.
I wonder if this affected Kelly's decision to interview for the Eagles job.
this is weak, they hopefully will come up with some better reasoning than this. This is inexcusable, Notre Dame deserves to be ridiculed if in fact this drivel from Dennis Brown is accurate.
did none of you learn anything from the last week. He without sin please cast the first stone. We do not know the whole story and we might never. It could be ND agreed to investigate the story but not expose it when Teo's family came forward. The real fact is I do not KNOW what happened and NONE of us do. Yes this is a bad situation and all but if the school was not involved in the actual hoax then ND has had far worse things happen. This is a university of men and though it maybe Catholic it is not perfect and in fact is far from perfect.
