This is a must read from SI.com of an unedited interview with Te’o that just raises a ton of more questions, but the most telling is Te’o confirming he met his fake girlfriend in person. Notre Dame says their relationship was just online. SI: How did you meet her? TE’O: We met just, ummmm, just she knew my cousin. And kind of saw me there so. Just kind of regular. SI: How long were you dating? I know that can be a complicated question. TE’O: Oct. 15 was the official date. Of last year. I’ve known her for four years. So we’ve been friends. SI: So you dated for about a year. TE’O: Yeah. SI: Your girlfriend’s funeral was yesterday? TE’O: I talked to [her family yesterday]. I cried. I cried at 12 noon yesterday. At 9 a.m. California time. SI: She was buried in California? TE’O: She was always in California. Her family is from Hawaii but they live in California. SI: Where did you meet her in California? TE’O: She actually came to one of the games. She saw me at one of the games. SI: October 15, I assume is USC? TE’O: That was in November. But she saw me at the USC game of my sophomore year. We were still just friends, we were acquaintances.
