Teo's dead girlfriend isn't real


Must read on the golden child MLB from Notre Dame

When I first saw the story I thought it was a joke, but after reading it, it's pretty convincing. If Te'o thought his play in the National Championship is going to hurt him, he hasn't seen anything yet.

Wow, if true, this speaks to some serious issues this kid is harboring. Damn, I was really hoping he would have a good combine and push Ogletree down to us. No one is going to take a lieing, publicity *****, tackle whiffer in round 1.

Is he even a Day 1 or 2 pick anymore?
His play screamed painfully average, but his character and leadership hoopla kept him up high on the boards...now this is a major blow to that regardless of how much he knew.

I can't imagine anyone taking him in 1 if true. This is so incredible as to be a Hollywood script. We have no frame of reference for deception like this. Drugs, alcohol, gambling, sure those can be understood. Making up a dieing girlfriend to increase your media exposure? Thats sociopathic. I want to say he's screwed himself into day 3 status, but a some team is going to see him falling and pull the trigger. Bears in the 2nd?

I can't even see that.
There is no clean way out for Teo.
If he knew he is a sociopath and liar.
If he didn't know, he is an idiot who will never command respect of his teams.

Its amazing that someone in such a spotlight as Te'o is, would make this up. Knowing with all the journalism out there that would try and dig something up and, well, here you go. If this turns out to be true, this could cost him a TON of money, but even worse, this could cost him a ton of respect. I was one of the board members that pleaded for the Bengals to try and go after Te'o, but this scandal speaks volumes to his character and now I dont know if I would want him in Bengals stripes.

I will be interested in seeing how this story develops. If this is something ESPN goes with or if it makes news on CNN or MSNBC or FOX or whatever. You never know, this story could be a hoax.

Regardless of the storry (absolutely horrible if true) I wouldn't want him on the team anyway. Reminded me of Rey 2.0 in the National Championship and the Bengals can't afford to waste a first round pick on a guy like that when the team is a few players short of putting it all together.

I look for ML to personally go to his pro day and check him out. That doesn't mean they will select him but I wouldn't bet against it if hes there.

I heard about this on the radio. Unreal. This makes those combine interviews extra juicy, if nothing else.

Pete Thamel ‏@SIPeteThamel
ND releases statement that says Te'o was a victim of a hoax: "a sad and very cruel deception to entertain its perpetrators."

This will not end well for Teo

Sad that people have to crave attention so much that they make up stories such as this.
I certainly don't want him on the Bengals at this point unless he learns from this,holds himself accountable, and grows up.
I would rather the team have SEC or Stanford lb's anyways.

Anyways, it wouldn't surprise me if he fell out of the first completely. There's no such thing as being "victim" to a hoax, he definitely knew about it or he would have spoken up sooner.

Brent Musberger thinks Teo's fake girlfriend is a good looking woman.

Posted this on the other board, too, but it's so good I didn't want anyone to miss it.

Anybody that watched the BCS Championship knows that T'eo is Eddie Lacy's girlfriend.
