I guess for me it comes down to what is most logical. If I'm gay LB I just take out a girl every once in awhile to trick the masses. I don't hatch an elaborate ruse w/ a dude 1000 miles away and ham it up on national tv drawing attn to it since I am still in the closet or whatever.
It's also a really overblown story. At least as it pertains to nfl. If a team likes him they are still taking him high. Pot heads and thiefs and people accused of even worse get drafted. Teams just care if you can play.
Seems logical but, if Te'o and said the guy are in love, maybe going out on dates with chicks isnt cool. Plus, if hes gay, and I believe whole heartedly he is, then he'd have to **** a chick here and there. That isnt going to fly either.
He should of "hired" a hot lesbian to be his beard. Or at least a chick who doesnt mind being "with" a gay dude. But, maybe in his world, he wouldnt know of anyone.
All in all, its crazy, but I have no doubt this story is all about covering his sexual orientation.
