Manti Teo is in the process of giving his first interview since this weeks shocking news broke that the story of his girlfriend dying during his senior season at Notre Dame was a hoax. But its an interview that is likely to raise more questions than answers.

ESPN confirmed on Friday night that Teo was sitting down with reporter Jeremy Schaap. That Schaap was chosen as the first interviewer Teo would sit with is not surprising, as reports surfaced this week that Schaap and Teo would be sitting down together.

But what is surprising is that ESPN also confirmed that Schaap and Teo are having an off-camera interview. That is bizarre. ESPN is a TV network and Schaap is a TV interviewer. Obviously, ESPN would prefer to get his interview on camera, so that must have been a demand from Teo and his camp. But why, if Teo is simply an innocent victim of a hoax as he and Notre Dame have insisted is the case wouldnt he want to face the cameras and tell the whole truth?

Even more surprising is that ESPN released a photo of Schaap sitting down with Teo and Teo's attorney. If Teo is simply an innocent victim of a hoax, why does he need to have an attorney present before he can answer any questions?

Also odd is that Teo decided to do this on a Friday night: Its right out of the damage control P.R. playbook to put out damaging information on a Friday evening and hope that the information will get lost in the weekends news. But, again: If Teo is simply an innocent victim of a hoax, what damaging information is this interview going to uncover?

We simply dont know, and until we hear what Schaap and Teo talked about, well have more questions than answers.

And with this bizarre story, its safe to say that even after we hear what Schaap and Teo talked about, well have more questions than answers.
