I can't get my mind to believe that this is true. Is there really any way it's even possible that so many reporters covered this story without actually checking any facts? I have to believe there is something that deadspin is missing.

Look at the comments at the bottom of the article. Someone saying that the last name Kehoe (or whatever it was) is her 'professional' name. Her last name is actually Woj>>>> something or another...Could be the reason nothing appears.

The lady that says her picture has been taken from her facebook pages would then be a question-mark...

Who knows how this will end up. Teo is laying low...might be because he laid low in the title game...


If true...a BIG IF...

...would the Heisman committee take away his 2nd place finish?

Would the other awards be taken away...?

Am not surprised in the least that this wasn't fact checked by any media outlet.

If true, that's gonna sting Notre Dame for awhile. Exclamation Exclamation

I wonder whether Brian Kelly found out about it earlier and decided to interview for a pro job.... Think

I love it! This is a classic.

What a fabulous end to the season for ND!!

Being curb stomped as pretenders, their glamour boy going MIA in the national spotlight...who turns out to be a pretender as well!

What a group.

Bruce Feldman ‏@BFeldmanCBS
ND statement confirms Deadspin's report that "Lennay Kekua" never existed, but says Manti Te'o was duped.

He was duped by his "girl friend" or the Bama OL?

Statement I read purportedly from ND seemed to imply that he met "her" over the internet, maybe even spoke to someone over the phone.

Hard to know what is true. But if its on the internet . . .

Even Te'o now admits he was duped... He reported it to his coaches on DECEMBER 26th!

This is the story from ESiPN:

If you're going to make up a girlfriend, don't ya think you make her name something like Sally Jones? Lennay Kekua seems to be too easy to research......

Could this be why he seemed so "lost" during the Bama game?

Here's what the domers are saying

Quote:
But, If the girl he vacationed with was lying to him the entire time, then how Is that his fault? Its not like she was a childhood love of his. He met the girl, their relationship happened, then he received news she had lost her bout with leukemia. What part of that Is Teos fault, If In fact that Is what happened.

You see Lennay's whole existence was a hoax. It was a fabrication of someones mind, an altered personality If you will. The girl (whatever her real name Is) pretended to be someone that didnt exist. She did not assume the life of a person Teo already knew.

yet, they used pictures taken off the web, wouldn't he notice if she didn't look anything like her pictures?

maybe he has bad eyesight, maybe that is why everyone was running by him in the championship game.

It seems undisputed that he Teo said he met "her" once so...

(1) He met a girl, and then failed to notice when the pictures posted online were different then the girl he met

(2) He lied about meeting her for some reason and he really was duped by a completely online relationship, which he later discussed extensively with national media.

(3) He knew the relationship was fake and participated in the deception.

I know which one I think is most likely.

FYI.. this comment was a joke. That's a Seinfeld reference. The line is about a guy who attended Columbia named Ray Thomas. George couldn't find him in the registrar. He said he was registered under his full name Ray Thomas Wochinski and his professional name is Ray Thomas.

Even without this story the voters who cast their votes because of his "sad" tale and not because of his accomplishments on the field should never be allowed to vote again.

Thanks, Trident.

Never watched much of Seinfeld...maybe 10 or so episodes.

Just heard on the news that ND is having a press conference at 7:00. Assuming that's central time. Should be interesting what the "official" response will be. Liar

I agree with many that say this is the perfect example of why off field issues should rarely be considered when it comes to the Heisman. Never have the FULL story either way.

I just think it's hilarious that all of the media outlets got duped. They didn't check their story, they just ran with it cause it sounded good and now with egg on their faces they'll just brush it off and say oops, sorry. Laughing
