  • The Media always put ND kids on a pedestal, and this time they got burned. They ran stories they didnt research. Now, they are actually running with the story that this was a "hoax." rather than eat crow.


    Good teams know, they do their research:

    Quinn lacked accuracy, the media had him as a possible top 10 pick then acted like GMs were morons for passing on him on draft day. They all hailed the Browns as Brilliant for picking him where they did.

    The media over hyped Clausen too. They completely ignored multiple reports that he was extremely unpopular in the locker room and on generally disliked by a ton of people who once played with him going back to high school.

    Now, they heaped more college defensive awards on Te'o than anyone ever. Thats right Te'o is the most decorated college defensive player of ALL TIME.
    It isnt deserved. He isnt even the best defensive player in college football this year, let alone all time.

      Well, i don't think ND somehow changes perspective on players, as its how they perform on the field that gets there draft stock and what not.. Even if notre dame hyped kids, which they don't, as just about every kid they get that is hyped, is wanted by about 30other schools, it woulden't matter, becuase colleges try and hype there kids at prodays and what not, and it dosen't matter... Clausen was extremely high ranked QB coming out, and i don't think ND hyped em? He was a heck of a college player, and there was no doubt about it..

      Look at all the hyped kids over the past few yrs that do nothing in the pros? Its not just claussen and Quinn.. Te'o had a ridiculous season and brought his team to the championship game behind a huge statistical season, and hes put up big statistical seasons basically since arriving, and yes ND is the Yankees or celtics of college football, so when they get back to prominance, of course a player u can give attention to on that team is gonna get it, and i believe Te'o deserved all the credit he was given for on the field play, and will be a stud pro, even if this story is dispicable and grotesque! Te'o is a heck of a player, another words.. hence, why he was at the Heisman finals...

        Lets get 2 things clear: I am not bashing ND nor am I saying Te'o is a bad player. He does deserve to eat it on this story tho.

        This is pretty bad and in no way a hoax. You telling me he didnt know it was a hoax when they ran that ESPN special on that story just a few weeks ago? He only came up with "hoax" when the story was uncovered recently. NY media would have a field day with this kid on that story, they would eat his lunch.

        I do not blame ND. I blame the media. Keep in mind ND has 1 of the best media schools in the country. You simply cannot deny the level of overhype that the players there sometimes get. The media tends to latch onto 1 kid and run every possible.

        You mentioned the Heisman voting which only PROVES my point. You realize he got more votes than any defense only player ever? Who votes for the heisman I ask you? That's right, the media does. Can you seriously say Te'o this year deserved more votes than Suh did a couple years ago? He had a good season, no doubt. But denying his hype level is/was too high only makes people look biased.

          The whole idea that he was duped unknowingly doesn't make any sense at all.

            And Im pretty sure making up a story about how a gf died, isnt "really evil".
            If you make up a story about a fake girlfriend dying to get publicity you are very, very strange and demented but not necessarily evil.

              That bowl game performance was far worse for his draft stock than this story.

              Of course the bigger question is... when teams interview him, and they have the psychologists there, do they find out hes an insane person, or if hes normal and just caught up in some nonsense and lies.
              Sorry, but no "normal" person does that. The question is, is his abnormality enough to affect his play?

              • Next You'll probably hear his grandmother didn't even die of natural causes. Think about it, she was 72, died from an "extended illnes." I'm calling slow doses of cyanide poisoning. It was a very popular method from HBO's "Autopsy" with Dr. Michael Baden....Infact somebody should get him on the case

                • I dunno, I feel like Teo would be happy for us to think he was in on it. It seems to me he's bad with women, met a girl online (so he thought), made up stories about their relationship so it didn't seem like B.S., and then it all blew up in his face. Their initial "meeting" or interaction on Twitter (his response of 'nice to meet you ma'am) vs the tale he told about meeting her in person at a game kinda plays towards that. It's the classic kid making up that he has a g/f in another state but on a grander scale and involves a fake internet profile. Someone goofed on him, couldn't believe he baught it, took it to the limits and then faked the girls death to end it. That (absurd as it may be) is equally, if not more, plausible than Teo being in on it. That's why he's embarrassed. He was telling a lie about a relationship with someone he never really met. Unfortunately for.him she never really existed. And was a dude LOL. Poor guy, really. Especially now with people categorizing him as "evil" when he's more an ignorant innocent. Maybe we can grab him.in the third now....lol

                    That's a great point. If he was actually in on it, you'd think he could atleast get the story straight of initial inter action...You're probably right on the money

                      It's really not out of the realm of possibility but since webcams are so easy and cheap to acquire these days to "prove" the validity of your a/s/l, now we have to ask ourselves if Te'o is THAT ignorant to not at least ask for more substantial proof than the word of some random stranger on the interwebz.

                        This is one of the bigger problems and holes in this whole story. That doesn't even constitute a girlfriend. And, as Enigma said is he really that ignorant? This whole story stinks to high heaven and really disappoints me to think that someone that seemed so classy could be this naive or involved in something so...weird.

                          • Am I the only one who thinks he was legitimately hoaxed? The show Catfish on MTV follows cases like this all the time. There's always an excuse of why the other person can't meet or doesn't have a webcam. Idk all the details but he seems like he's truthful.

                                I have a hard time believing that a guy that most likely can have any girl at Notre dame, got soo emotionally attached to a girl over the internet....you can't be all there in the head to truthfully get into a situation like that
