When you mentioned Pete carroll I thought you were going to talk about him leaving USC before everything hits the fan and leaving the university to clean up his mess. That's a better example of lack of integrity IMO.
Isn't that worse than Teo? Teo just thought he was talking to a genuine person and made up stories about actually meeting her in person so as not to come off weird for loving a person he never met.
If I told you Eli had cancer and you took me at my word and then told someone else are you a fraud? Are you a con-man? I would think you were lied to and/or misinformed.
The kid was duped into an online relationship with someone that was too good to be true, fell head over heels, tried to make it seem not as weird/creepy as it was, and now this. If he was a math major at N.D. you'd never have heard of this. He'd think this girl that he loved died of Leukemia and we'd be worried about the draft.
WHAT????? Are you comparing CArroll calling a TO just before a kicker kicks a FG and then supposedly says he didn't call TO to Te'o who made up SEVERAL stories about actually a girlfriend that wasn't really. I don't know either Te'o or Carroll personally, but using that example you gave what Te'o did was worse than what Carroll did. And BTW I can't stand Carroll.
And why the heck would I take you, a strangers, word for Eli having cancer. At the very least I would check online, the news, etc. to confirm it.
I can't tell if your post is serious or not, but I read the Schapp interview with Te'o and I believe him even less. Skim through it yourself.
There is no hard evidence that points to Te'o's innocence nor is there any that completely points to him being involved in the hoax. All we have so far is a bunch of "he says, she says" and trusting one's own intuition.

The hard thing for me was to believe that someone would be so naive, but apparently it is a common thing.
