Throughout this past college football season as Notre Dame football player Manti Te'o was having the season of a lifetime, on the side was a human interest story for the ages involving the death of his grandmother and his long time girlfriend almost at the same time and how Manti used them both as inspiration to have such a great season and even had one of his best games while skipping his girlfriend's funeral. It was all a hoax. Not the grandmother, but the girlfriend and Deadspin.com has it all right here. You can read that very in depth article, but what is interesting to me is that after the story broke, Manti now says his relationship with the woman was exclusively online and over the phone and that he never met his girlfriend. he also says that when he tried to meet her, she would never show up and that he became aware this was a hoax in the last week of December when he received a call from her cell phone and she was still alive. He says he told Notre Dame officials and they were going to release the story next week, but deadspin beat them to it. So, it took Notre Dame almost a month to get ready to release something? That seems like a very long time. Who do you believe? Was Manti a part of the hoax or unwilling participant?
