Two time Poster of The Week, 2011 and 2013.
THat's the best case scenario. God, I hope he wasnt in on the hoax and if he was, I hope no one employed by ND had knowledge of it.
That would make this worse.

There is a show on MTV called Catfish where this guy helps people find out who they have been talking to or "dating" online through facebook or myspace. People pose as others and get in online relationships without ever seeing in person, skyping etc. basically, they get dooped by someone playing someone else, usually a fake profile and these people fall in love with them. Crazy.
Merlin the only problem is Teo said he met her and that she came to Hawaii and met his parents. Hard to be Catfished with those facts
my post from the stickied thread before seeing Merlins thread... Merlin hit it right on the nose.
Has anyone watched the show "Catfish" on MTV? it's about people that meet online, fall in love (having never met in real life), keep a "relationship" for years, then one day decide to meet via the shows host, and things are completely different than what they had thought. in some cases it's a person of the same gender just messing with down and out girls/guys just to get their hopes up and then crush them. i REALLY hope this is what happened, otherwise Te'o loses all credibility with me.
POTW June 4, 2012 - June 11, 2012
There are two things that bother me that I want to see explained....
The rebuilt timeline has this in it, per Deadspin: "They started out as just friends," Te'o's father, Brian, told the Tribune in October 2012. "Every once in a while, she would travel to Hawaii, and that happened to be the time Manti was home, so he would meet with her there." How did he meet her?
The second is purely time, it says the first contact was back in 2009. If she was still going to Stanford in 2011 (not sure on this one), wouldn't Te'o have insisted on meeting in person the weekend of the Stanford game at Stanford?
Without those answers, I will continue to try to interview other years and fire 2013 for its underachieving performance.
This is so bizarre that if it wasn't for Teo/ND I would just toss it - really hope reputations aren't in harms way on this otherwise page 10 story. GO IRISH!
