It's extremely long so I didn't post the article to the thread, but it's pretty damning. They make some conclusions that they hammer home based on conjecture and there's a couple of leaps based on inferences (or failed inferences, as it were), but it's a blistering report.

This thread needs a clearer title.

This is a serious piece of reporting by Deadspin. It alleges that Te'o's deceased girlfriend never existed. She was an imagined thing intended to increase Te'o's media exposure.

If I were going to make up a girlfriend, she would love football and be hot and nasty in the sack. She wouldn't die from something.

Good thing he didn't win the Heisman.

I had never even heard about his supposed dead girlfriend, so the media didn't really play it up much. At least not in the news I read or watch

I'm sure noted videographer murderer Brian Kelly was somehow involved.

LMAO. T'eo is a con artist and loving it.

As of this writing, Te'o's Twitter profile carries a quotation from Alexandre Dumas's The Count of Monte Cristo, the great adventure novel about a man in disguise.

Life is a storm.. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes.

So, take him in the 4th round?

Did you watch any college football this year? Especially leading up to the title game.

This was a huge story all year. Hell, the 'death' happened mid-season.

This is as rattling a shot as I've taken as a sports fan for quite awhile. This was a pretty major story among the college football faithful and as it turns out it may just be one massive, elaborate hoax.

But here's the good news - TE'O AT 2.2!!!!!

She never existed....kind of like his coverage sklls.
