    There is a theory that Te'o could be gay but doesn't want to come out because of his religion.

    it should be mentioned that he is Mormon. for whatever that's worth.

    maybe I'm naive, but I want to believe that he had no part in this and was just fooled. I'm going to need more information before I can believe anything else.

    Uhh, did you read the actual story? He was so fooled that he completely made up a story about meeting her at Stanford, meeting up with her in Hawai'i, etc? If so, he needs to be committed to a mental institution ASAP.

    I don't believe he is gay in the slightest.

    I can't really explain this right now, but I want to wait for more details. I think there is still information that we don't know.

    this was Manti's statement.
    "This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her. "To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone's sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating. "It further pains me that the grief I felt and the sympathies expressed to me at the time of my grandmother's death in September were in any way deepened by what I believed to be another significant loss in my life. "I am enormously grateful for the support of my family, friends and Notre Dame fans throughout this year. To think that I shared with them my happiness about my relationship and details that I thought to be true about her just makes me sick. I hope that people can understand how trying and confusing this whole experience has been. "In retrospect, I obviously should have been much more cautious. If anything good comes of this, I hope it is that others will be far more guarded when they engage with people online than I was. "Fortunately, I have many wonderful things in my life, and I'm looking forward to putting this painful experience behind me as I focus on preparing for the NFL Draft."
    maybe when he met "this girl" it was someone pretending to be this girl who was part of the hoax all along. "they" could have had a girl who looked like the picture. only picture I've seen was the one from google image search. if she was Hawaiian I don't think it would be hard to find another Hawaiian who looked similar.

    Right because he's the first person to ever exaggerate a relationship with a girl.

    Apparently ESPN has known about this for the last 10 days but couldn't confirm.

    There are more holes in this story than Notre Dames defense.

    This goes beyond just exaggerating or making up how they met because it was online. Furthermore, he was still doing interviews about her leading up to the NC even though he supposedly found out on December 26th that he was a "victim" of a hoax? Come on guys, you're smarter than this.
