    Strange story. We'll see how it develops whether Teo made up the story or whether he was played a fool like what Notre Dame is trumpeting.

    what a very strange story

    Maybe it will come out that he's a filthy pig of a liar and everyone will pass on him until the eagles land him in the 2nd! Then id wake up

    but seriously what a strange story

    Amazing he, or anyone, would think for a second in this day-n-age of technology, social media and whatnot, would think he'd get away with this hoax and that nobody would pick up on it.

    It's breaking big here this morning all over the national breakfast news shows. Doesn't look good for him at all.

    Read this crap -

    "On the morning of Dec. 26, very early morning, Manti called his coaches to inform them that while he was in attendance at the ESPN awards show in Orlando, he received a phone call from a number he recognized as having been that he associated with Lennay Kekua," Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said. "When he answered it, it was a person whose voice sounded like the same person he had talked to, who told him that she was, in fact, not dead. Manti was very unnerved by that, as you might imagine."

    Pfftt....

    This kid's either incredibly stupid, or a special kind of stupid.

    Or a trusting Mormon kid from Hawaii who lived an extremely sheltered life.

    Who knows though

    He isnt top 15 anyway, he is overrated, he has very poor lateral movement and slow in coverage. He has very good instincts but he's not not a top 15 pick, and oh he was exposed very badly by bama, he couldn't tackle anything that night against a quality side

    I agree.... kind of. The young man has a good football head and reads play very well given his position.

    The kid's good, maybe very good, but he's not Top 15 in my books.

    Manti Te'o is overhyped. You know a prospect sucks when his best trait is intangibles and leadership. With this story he might not even have that. I won't touch him until the 4th round. His athleticism is terrible for his position. His coverage is ordinary. His tackling is around average, nothing special. He reminds me of Maualuga. Both hyped up due to their leadership. Maualuga has a case for worst 4-3 MLB in the game.

    Fake cancer's a real bitch.

    EDIT: I realise the timing of this joke is pretty poor, but I would like to think we can separate this situation from that of the NRL.

    And, this is Australia, its what we do.
