Manti Te'o Hoax

Alright guys, I wanna hear everybody's opinion about Te'o's claim that he was duped into thinking this girlfriend was real. Is he BSing with a story? Is he just that naive and fell for it? Imagine what woulda happened had he won the Heisman.Personally, I watched that interview he gave about his girlfriend dying back in October. When he's asked the question, "What was the last thing you said to her?", he was a little like a deer in the headlights. He seemed like he was coming up with an answer on the fly. He said "We were actually talking about my grandmother," which to me, seems a little too convinient :roll: There was a six hour window between the two deaths, something about that answer rubs me the wrong way. So what do you guys think?Disclaimer: Yeah, I know this isn't pro football, but he's going first round in the draft.

Also: I'm not trying to be negative. I personally loved the guy throughout the season, I had the utmost respect for him as a player, leader and person. But now I'm obviously having my doubts. If he's telling the truth, I really feel for the guy. But if you read the Deadspin article, there are STRONG implications Te'o was in on it for publicity.
