I just watched an interview on ESPN. I don't know if I would talk with such sincerity and emotion had it been my own mother, let alone someone I NEVER MET. Sorry guys. This thing stinks to high heaven. And shame on ND's SID for not being out in front of this story (unless they believed it as much as I do).

At worst, Manti is lying. At best, he is lying. He said he had met her a few times. Wouldn't he know the photo of her online wasn't her if he had met her?

Sadly, as this comes out on the same day as Lance, often if things are too good to be true, they likely aren't true.

Sad to say it but Manti was in on it in some way or some form too many things dont add up here. WHat does add up it was a great story to run with during Heisman Campaign and also to become MORE popular on ESPN ect..

for now I'm going to go ahead and believe Manti. no reason not to, for now.

someone is investigating this more yes? IF Manti is found to be part of this, EPIC BAD. lets say he is, could he be charged himself with fraud?

but for now, I feel I have to give him the benefit of the doubt and believe he had no part of the hoax.

Concerning Deadspin, given the nature of the type of reporting they do, they have very good lawyers. I am anxious to see what happens with all of this.

Concerning Manti, how the heck do you get so involved with a woman you haven't met?? There is so much info out there it's hard to keep track of it all. I thought I heard somewhere that his girlfriend visited him and/or his parents in Hawaii?? If Manti is innocent of wrong doing he is at least guilty of being very naive and it would make him look really stupid.

One of the strangest stories I've ever heard.

Was there donation sites set up for Lennay? I can see this as an epic con job if that had occured.

Manti as we all know is a MORMON----unlike many of us that sowed a zillion wild oats in our college days---manti is encouraged to be very slow regarding women --dating-- and especially SEX---

To me the idea that he was especially vulnerable to this kind of manipulation is not far-fetched.

I am witholding judgement until the facts come out. It does seem highly fishy. That being said, it is very plausible that Manti told everyone he met the girl in person because it would be embarrasing to admit to the national media that the big man on campus has a girlfriend he met online and has never met in person. A little white lie to cover up something embarrasing.

I'm still confused.
so Manti actually went and met "some girl" who was supposed to be the girlfriend. so he met someone pretending to be the girlfriend? when he met this girl, wouldn't she this girl have looked differently than the pictures?

If there was lying involved here by manti---something i do not yet know--it could easily have been lying that occurred after he found out he had been DUPED---in other words lie's to protect himself from being seen as a fool rather then lies to promote a hoax for some percieved benifit---

human nature seems consitent that once he found out he was duped---if that occurred after the big HOOPLA about his couarge in the face of tragedy--that he may have lied to protect himself from humiliation---

that to me would be a clear difference then being a part of the hoax for some gain---

given it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to see the benefit for teo in all of this---it seems almost absurd to think he willingly participated and lied in order to promote this bazarr information---

IMHO--much more likely we are seeing a very HIGH PROFILE unraveling of another interent deception that is EPIDEMIC in america----

Guys exposed as gay---wives exposed as cheating--affairs everywhere--hidden by internet lies---misrepresentations of every concievable kind going on daily---MOST STORIES ARE JUST OF INTEREST TO THE PARTIES INVOLVED---this one may simply be the high profile exception of the FLOOD OF DECEOTION that is the modern social media---

Re-listened to Manti's ESPN interview. He said that he talked to her EVERY NIGHT FOR 4 MONTHS, sometimes all night. So, to believe Manti, we have to believe that there was a girl out there, with apparently nothing to gain other than to perpetrate a hoax on Manti T'eo, that wasted 4 months of her life and countless hours on the phone for no apparent reason. For those of you say that this happens all the time, I must be really out of the loop. What a laugh they all must have had after devoting at least 4 months of their lives to this practical joke.

Incredibly bummed and confused. If this ends up shedding light that Manti is a fraud and a liar I won't know what to think anymore. I supported this dude so much. I just hope this isn't true...

Hopefully this doesn't effect our recruiting but that's probably wishful thinking. I've been really positive since the title game loss with the drama in the offseason, but if we take a hit here on this Manti story it will be hard to remove myself from the ledge.

No. He kept mentioning overcoming personal tragedy but did not mention Lennay specifically.
