    Now that I think of it, there were some instances in the past where I felt this slipknottin guy was a computer robot.

    With the way ND backed him and had their own investigation (supposively), I'm inclined to believe in some crazy way he got played. ND did not have to back him and will look awfully foolish if they turn out to be wrong. I could easily see someone lying about an online relationship and making it sound more real than it is and the lies continuing to snowball but idk. We will see in the coming days or maybe today. Te'o certainly isn't running from it and they came out and made a statement pretty quick. Although, they did have time since they were tipped off to get their **** together.

    Even if we give him the benefit of the doubt and assume this is the case, that he is just a victim of a hoax. It still makes him look like a jerk because he still didnt come clean when he found out. No, he allowed ESPN to run a special throughout the season. He allowed this story to garner him attention and continued to answer questions about it. He used this "hoax" to make himself a media darling. No, he never even mentioned the "hoax" until someone busted him on it.

    Really Prince Amukumara was a 1st rd pick he got thrown in an ice bath. These guys are big kids.

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
    I understand your points, but I still can't agree with it. According to the deadspin article Te'o and Kekua first met on October 10,2011 on twitter. Not at the Stanford game in 2009. Between 2011 and to the time of here death in 2012, he never went to visit her? I just find that hard to believe. Whether he was awkward and shy around women, this is a friend that he supposedly had a lot of conversation with.

    I think Te'o was in on this scam. He did it to get more publicity IMO. The story got out of hand for him and had a life of its own. He knew he was going to get outed pretty soon (probably why he skipped the Senior Bowl). And now he's moved to damage control. He wants everyone to believe he's this innocent "kid" that was hoaxed.

    He lied about it too. Remember, he told the media he spent time with this girl in Hawaii.

    The hoax story doesnt fly.

    I get the feeling he kept adding to his end of it to make it seem legitimate. Instead of telling everyone "this is only an online and on the phone relationship, I never met her"

    Which is somewhat understandable. Look at the bashing he is getting now by people who don't understand how someone could fall for someone they have never actually met.

    Of course he isn't blameless, he has to be smarter about both what he was doing online and how he handled it publicly, but I don't think he was deliberately trying to scam everyone either
