      He is in his early twenties. I'm sure football has been his whole life for some time now. Maybe this online girl was an escape. In any event this is strange.

        I think that's more in the media, which had him ridiculously over hyped.

        He was always a mid to late 1st round pick.

            he hasn't though, their first interaction was on twitter less then a year before she died whit the line "nice to meet you ma'am" This obviously doesn't sink up with the Stanford meeting he told the media

              No. There had been stories of them talking since like 2009.

                No, those are his stories of what he told the media. Obviously he never met her at a Stanford game in 2009. Deadspin traced their first twitter convo to October 2011 where he said "nice to meet you"

                  That was my first thought when this story broke.

                    That's still 2 years ago.

                    Still sort of all fits. He made up stories likely because he was embarrassed about the whole thing.

                      Can you be knowingly duped?

                        no.... its barely over a year from now, and less than a year from the day she died(11 months).

                        Again tho, he lied multiple times and had SEVERAL opportunities to correct the situation. He said he met with her in Hawaii. He said he met with her at a football game. He said he had phone conversations with her and her mother. He didnt say anything all football season when ESPN and every other network ran their story over and over. He only came up with the "hoax" thing when the story broke. Maybe it was a hoax, who knows, but either way his behavior and lies were scummy and certainly not the behavior of a leader.

                          Lol, no, wrong again. She died in sept 2012, which is less then a year from their first interaction in oct of 2011

                          • Well the cards FB says this is actually a real person which is even stranger. Did he meet someone at the game in 2011? No? I don't really understand that part. We clearly don't have all the details.

                            But assume he talked to the girl for almost a year online and on the phone. Actually did fall for her. He made up stories to make it seem more legitimate and spare him some embarrassment. That part of it makes sense.

                              Idk about scummy, you don't know how it all went down. So he had a fake girlfriend, ray Lewis goes on tv after every game thanking his imaginary friend he has never met. Teo is a kid who messed up, not that big of a deal imo

                              • I'm of the opinion that he got caught up in a little white lie that snowballed into this mess. We've all been there as kids (if not so grandiose a stage or circumstance).

                                It might hurt his draft stock by a few picks but as pointed out, his game against 'Bama hurt his draft stock much worse (assuming no other really weird stuff comes out). At worst, a coach and/or GM might decide to pass on him just to avoid the locker room drama (for instance, I could see the Steelers passing on this guy).

                                To that end, locker rooms don't change much in maturity level from Pop Warner to the Pros. He will definitely get crucified in any locker room he joins. How he responds to that (good naturedly or with a chip on his shoulder) will determine the levels it rises to. His play on the field will also determine how much grief he gets.

                                All in all, I think he's just a kid who got caught out in the mother of all humiliating circumstances.
