    its extremely odd to say the least.

    Not that I know all the details, but really what did he stand to gain IF he was involved? It would take what stupid is up a notch

    I agree that Teo being involved is so stupid that it is too hard to believe, if he had nothing to gain why would he totally risk his credibility...

    Theory #1: He did it for sympathy. In the days leading up to the Heisman, all you would hear about is the incredible story of him playing after the death of his grandmother and girlfriend.

    Theory #2: He did it to cover up that he is gay.

    This goes beyond being stupid. This is insidious.

    Football is a macho culture. He proclaimed that this girl was the "love of his life". So in the future when he is a famous football player but not linked to any wife/girlfriend he can claim "I did love a girl once, and I will never love one again" or something to that effect. It basically gives him an out.

    Also add in the fact that he's a Mormon going to a Catholic school.

    Eh, the league is full of actual criminals.

    As long as he tells teams the truth when they ask, this wont affect him that much. Maybe 10 draft spots or something like that, but in the scheme of things, its pretty minor.

    It shouldnt have though. He had a damn good season and should have been a heisman finalist anyway. It was a really weak class and Te'o lead ND to an undefeated record.

    I think its controversial because its totally nuts
