One of the commenters give the best explanation that I have heard:

The only logical explanation for "why" Te'o has done this is because he is hiding his sexuality. Imagine being a gay football player ... raised Mormon ... attending a Catholic university ... and having to explain why you have no girlfriend. Easy ... invent a fictional girlfriend thousands of miles away that no one sees although she has a Facebook profile. All questions of why you don't hook up with the hundreds of women trying to shower their affections on the BMOC go away.

I heard on the Howie Carr radio show the other day that Hollywood actors back in the day did the same thing. Raymond Burr (Perry Mason) invented a story that both his wife and daughter had died, and he was so grief stricken that he just was not up to dating anyone else.

My original conclusion was that Te'o either as dumb as a sack of shit or a liar, or both. If he kept going with the lie at the Heisman ceremony, who's to say he's not lying about everything else? Spare me the "embarrassment" shit. Nobody told him to bring up the fake gf after supposedly "learning" that she was fake.

The story (you pick which version, there are a couple) makes very little sense and in this day and age isn't plausible TBH. He seriously didn't even think to skype with this chick, and it didn't cross him as odd that he could never meet or even see each other's faces? And that there was always some complication -- car accident that apparently also gave her cancer, a coma, her inability to communicate verbally, her untimely death? It's insulting to our collective intelligence that they expect non-ND fans to believe this. There are so many people lying that we may never know the full story.

OTL also interviewed two other people who said they have a cousin who had the same online hoax pulled on them by Tuiasosopo.

J.R. Vaosa, 28, of Torrance, Calif., and Celeste Tuioti-Mariner, 21, of Whittier, said that in 2008 their cousin began an online romance with a woman who portrayed herself as a model. Vaosa said the cousin showed Vaosa a picture on MySpace of a woman from a Victoria's Secret catalog that he said was Kekua. Vaosa said that the online Kekua would agree to meet his cousin at certain places. Vaosa said he went with the cousin to meet her.


Yea OK! I really believe this.

I like Jason Whitlock. He always gives a different take on things other than your standard talking head. Sometimes I agree with him, sometimes I don't. But, they are always a decent read. In this case, I agree with him.
http://msn.foxsports.com/collegefootbal ... end-011813

BTW... he says that ESPN/ABC heard before the BCS Champs Game that Kekua didn't exist. I haven't seen that anywhere. If true, then them not researching the story highlights how major news organization readily sacrifice journalistic integrity in order to perpetrate an approved narrative.

Who is "the woman"? She did a report today interviewing two of his cousins and based upon their statements, Te'o is merely an innocent victim. What a joke!

Next we're going to hear that all those fake stories Te'o told about meeting Lanney in Stanford and seeing her in Hawaii came from a fake Manti Te'o Twitter account that Tuasosopo created for ESPN and SI interviews. The media is an innocent victim! :ignign

Swarbrick and ND are now realizing how stupid that press conference made them look. They are now "encouraging" Te'o to come clean:

And the LGBT crowd wants answers as well:

Based on Jeremy Schaap's recap of the two and a half hour interview with Teo, it sounds like Teo simply got hoaxed and that's it. This story will probably fizzle out.

I didn't see it. But, according to Deadspin, Te'o admitted to lying about his relationship and to tailoring stories for the media. Furthermore, he claimed that he still believed she was real until Deadspin ran its story. Also, he claims that visiting the love of his life "never crossed his mind". He also claimed that she visited the teams hotel at the BCS Game (though that never happened and now that portion of the story has been removed from the website).

I think Te'o is an habitual lier at best and a scam artist at worst. He should enjoy a Clausen/Brady-like free fall to the middle rounds.

This isn't going away anytime soon. That interview didn't convince anyone but AngryOtilla.

I think Condon really screwed this up. Seemed like Gay-O was unprepared for even some totally predictable questions. If he wasn't going to tell the truth about his gheyness, he should have at least told a marketable lie. "I didn't want all the pressure to have premarital sex, to compromise my Christian beliefs, so I made up a story so I could focus on football. I apologize to my fans, to ND, and to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I know I will get through this with my faith and the support of friends and family." He's no longer the victim in this instance, but suddenly half of America sees him as the victim of a vicious, anti-religion media any time he is criticized. Worked for Tebow and Ray Lewis.

If you're buying any of the bullshit coming from espn, nd, or the gay'o camp, than you're a dumbass. Espn is the equivalent of CNN schilling for pussy-ass liberals. In this case, espn is schilling for a gay samoan. Bob Knight was right, Jeremy is not his father.

I disagree. Teo would have to be even more stupid to think he could create this hoax and get away with it. I think that would require a higher level of stupidity than simply falling for an online relationship. When this story first broke on Wednesday, I was on board with the conspiracy theorists and Teo being involved in it. Now, I'm not so sure. If I had to bet, I would say he fell for it, and then embellished it. Also, this hoax had been tried before with the same girl. That's another huge fact in favor of Teo. Ultimately, I think the people involved in the hoax have way too much time on their hands.

Even if he is not gay, he should just come out and say he was and made up the story to cover his ass. He will then be the darling of the left and everyone will feel bad for him, San Francisco will then draft him in the 1st round.

They'll certainly have their chance to draft him as he ain't going before that.

Te'o should admit he lied about the relationship and played it up for attention and sympathy. At least people will stop thinking he was part of the hoax. They didn't become a couple in October. They did so in April when she had her car accident (even though he told Thamel that the life-altering event occurred in mid-May). She then spent 2 months in a coma. That brings us to the beginning of July with virtually no 2-way communication. She goes home and finds out she has leukemia and dies 2-months later. As his teammates have said, this was never a real relationship... just something that Te'o played up because he liked the spotlight. We all shared a deeper relationship with 74 and IB... and this board has lost both this year (thanks to the tyrants).

Based on that, whether he was part of the hoax or not is immaterial.
