    I'm not sure what he said in interviews after the 26th because I'm sure he was asked about it. But also what do you say? "Oh yeah about that, my girlfriend wasnt actually real?" Whole thing was probably pretty surreal for him.

    There was a taped interview played before the title game which looked like it was done in the ND locker room. That could have been taped anytime after the end of the regular season.

    I think Teo got played bad. When the media asked him about it he didn't want to look like a loser, so he says he met her in person and they hung out randomly. It's not that far fetched.

    Lennay Kekua – Manti Te’o's Fake, Dead Girlfriend – Was Real, Says Arizona Cardinals Fullback Reagan Mauia, Who Claims to Have Met Her

    Reagan Mauia, a fullback on the Arizona Cardinals, has added another layer to the impossible-to-believe Manti Te’o fake girlfriend/hoax story. He talked to ESPN:

    “This was before her and Manti,” Mauia said Wednesday evening. “I don’t think Manti was even in the picture, but she and I became good friends. We would talk off and on, just checking up on each other kind of thing. I am close to her family. When she was going through the loss of her father, I was — I offered a comforting shoulder and just someone to bounce her emotions off. That was just from meeting her in Samoa.”

    Mauia said Tuiasosopo — whom Mauia believes is Kekua’s cousin — introduced the two. After the initial meeting, Mauia said he met her at an “after-party” for all of the athletes involved in the camp.

    “She was tall,” he said. “Volleyball-type of physique. She was athletic, tall, beautiful. Long hair. Polynesian. She looked like a model … ”

    He said it is his understanding that Kekua’s mother is operating her Twitter account. He said he’d never met her mother. When told by a reporter that she apparently might not have existed, Mauia said “No, she is real.”

    What.
    The.
    Hell.

    So she’s real? Or was real? And died? How?

    Notre Dame says Te’o was duped. Te’o said he’s been the subject of an elaborate hoax. Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick has put his reputation on the line and gone on TV to say Te’o was duped. Deadspin searched far and wide and found no mention of her, ever.

    Which leaves us … who knows where.

    This is awesome. Anyone remember that one story about some girl who ended up getting a job with ESPN, but she was fake the entire time? I think it was last summer.
    This is just as good.

    this was Manti's statement.


    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.
    That just seems kind of elaborate. And if you notice in his statement he says "online and phone". Doesn't say anything about being duped in person

    He was definitely perpetuating it. He could have declined comment. No one would have blamed him not wanting to re-hash that "emotional" (lol) part of his life while he was prepping for the NC. The fact of the matter is, he knew she was fake, and milked it for all it was worth. This was a publicity stunt for Manti Te'o, nothing more and nothing less.

    This is way deeper than that. Now with Reagan Mauia saying she was real...holy ****. Who even knows.

    The Notre Dame AD sounded like an absolute fool during his press conference today. Do these people just think we are going to disregard the written/taped statements from Te'o and his family about meeting this "girlfriend" numerous times?

    Te'o was in on it. Maybe not from the very beginning but if you think he is completely innocent here, then you are out of your mind.

    -I said this in another thread (one of the 17 te'o threads that are currently on PSD) but I can only imagine the meeting going on right now between Te'o, his father, his agent, and the Notre Dame higher ups...

    "maybe, when we wake up tomorrow, everyone will have just forgot about it"

    Teo's father said in an interview that they never met her. Swarbrick said that a couple of "meetings" would get cancelled last minute. Teo obviously lied about meeting her in person and exaggerated it to make it look like more than an online relationship.

    But yeah I agree nobody will forget about this anytime soon. It's too good a story for it to end up just being Manti getting duped.

    Yeah I remember that as well. It turned out to actually be a guy posing as a hot girl to get the job or something along those lines right?

    I'm pretty sure it was a girl, she just wasn't who she said she was.

    Cheesy but still great.

    Even better

    I've been following sports for about a billion years and I can't think of a bigger WTF news release.

    Well what do you want him to do? Oh about her yeah she didn't exist. I believe that ND paid someone or did something to keep this from coming out before the national title game. That I do believe.

    As far as Manti, I am not pretty confident that he was duped.

    We all know people make up stories of how they met someone online. I think it got out that he knew about this and it took a turn, and before long Te'o realized that he didnt want to look like a fool for having a girlfriend online because well there is a stigma to it. No one wants to admit they met someone online and now why would he want to come out and say this to people. "Oh yeah she was my GF for like 3 years, but I never actually met her." Why would he say that?

    Now we got this FB, so maybe he did actually meet her? I don't know. The more I hear the more I think it was someone duping him. ND would not have backed him like this if they didn't believe him because ND could just say **** him he doesn't play here anymore.
