The story of Manti Te'o and his girlfriend passing away during the college football season grew into one of those Hallmark moment stories that seemed to get mentioned any time someone with a microphone was talking about the star Notre Dame linebacker and Heisman Trophy runner-up. In easily one of the most insane pieces of sports journalism you'll ever come across, the professional muckrakers at Deadspin are claiming it's all ********. (Needless to say, Deadspin is now blacklisted.) Seriously, it's one of the more jaw-dropping articles I've ever read. Don't miss it. If Deadspin is wrong on this one, woe be unto them. If not... Well, to be a fly on the wall during Te'o's interviews with NFL teams before the upcoming NFL draft.

  • Just watched the ND AD attempt to spin this tale of on-line duping of their "star".. Baloney. Manti made up stories of how they met...at a ND/Stanford game. His father talked about her visits to Hawaii when Manti was home... all sorts of BS going on here. ND's poster boy is a fraud and ND is too arrogant to even admit it.
