So basically everyone should know by now that Manti Te'o is lying through his teeth to protect his draft stock right????  Well, at least that's my opinion, which will hopefully be fact soon.  Here is the article via the south bend tribune that says Te'o met his girlfriend after their game against Stanford.  She was claimed to be a student there.  It never felt like a chance meeting, although it probably appeared that way from the outside looking in. Their stares got pleasantly tangled, then Manti Te'o extended his hand to the stranger with a warm smile and soulful eyes. They could have just as easily brushed past each other and into separate sunsets. Te'o had plenty to preoccupy himself that November weekend in Palo Alto, Calif., back in 2009. … Lennay Kekua was a Stanford student and Cardinal football fan when the two exchanged glances, handshakes and phone numbers that fateful weekend three seasons ago. She was gifted in music, multi-lingual, had dreams grounded in reality and the talent to catch up to them. The plan was for Kekua to spend extensive time with the whole Te'o family when upwards of 40 of them came to South Bend in mid-November for ND's Senior Day date with Wake Forest. "They started out as just friends," Brian Te'o said. "Every once in a while, she would travel to Hawaii, and that happened to be the time Manti was home, so he would meet with her there. But within the last year, they became a couple. "And we came to the realization that she could be our daughter-in-law. Sadly, it won't happen now."  Oh yea, and did I mention that the Stanford game was on October 13, 31 days after her supposed death on September 12.  What a joke this story is.  If you actually believe the BS coming out of his mouth along with the crap coming out of Notre Dame you need to get something straitened up in your head.  Forget how "awesome" he was in the past and look at the facts.  Guy is pathetic.
