    Oh right. Maybe he was ashamed because she was online? I dunno, lot of speculation, all I'm knowing is that this is the weirdest story to come out in a while. CFB stay weird.

    The more questions you ask yourself, the more it seems like he was in on it. If you ever watch that catfish show, people will come up with ridiculous reasons for not seeing people who they have met online. This of course could have happened with Te'o, but now that he is backtracking on his own story, it certainly seems like he had a hand in fabricating it all.

    Time will tell of course, but the circumstantial evidence doesn't look so good right now.

    Okay, so in October, this piece aired on ESPN.



    The reporter who did the reporting, researching, etc. back then, said tonight that he couldn't find a death certificate, or any record of the car crash. When he told Te'o that, Wojo said that Te'o told him to back off. So they went ahead and ran the story. Here is a quote from Gene Wojciechowski:

    Well, I sat across from him and I was moved by his story and it was heartbreaking and heartwarming and as it turns out totally untrue. But short of asking to see a death certificate, I'm not sure what most people would do differently in that case. But in researching it before I wrote the script, I remember trying to find an obituary for his girlfriend and could not. And couldn't find any record of this car accident. But we asked Manti, could we contact Lennay's family and he said the family would prefer not to be contacted. Could we have some photos of Lennay? He said the family would prefer not to provide those. And so in that instance, and at that moment, you simply think that you have to respect those wishes. But in retrospect, you can see where some of those things simply were not adding up to make sense. Easy to say now. At the time it never enters your mind somebody was involved in that kind of hoax

    Poor form from Woj imo, these things raise red flags, you always gotta get confirmation.

    But if Te'o told him to back off, then surely he was in on it?

    This dude did some digging -- came to the conclusion that Te'o knew nothing about it all (there are tweets pre-dating all of this news referencing a fake girl).
