Former Stanford defensive tackle Matthew Masifilo thinks Manti Te’o was truly duped by his fake girlfriend. Masifilo, who played at Stanford from 2007-2011 and signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in November, claims Te’o was always asking Stanford players if they knew his mystery girlfriend. Got to believe Te’o was the victim here.He would always ask us if we knew his mystery girl after we’d play them…. — Matthew Masifilo (@MMasifilo) January 17, 2013 For what it’s worth, Masifilo is half Tongan and half Hawaiian. He played high school football in Hawaii. Based on what he’s saying Te’o may have been duped by someone. Either that, or he was so deep into his web of lies, he would go to these extremes to keep up the story.
