2 outcomes:

1) He's a liar. He lied about the gf, he's lying about his place in it now, and there are enough people interested enough in protecting Manti that he'll be able to concoct a story of him only being complicit in white lies to explain inconsistencies and others were out to get him.

2) He is literally so shielded from societal norms that he actually was duped, which may be even scarier. His parents are quoted as saying Manti told them this could be his wife, right? Yikes. Some NFL team is going to invest in that? I have a bad feeling Manti may take his NFL signing bonus and try to help a Nigerian Prince in need.

I don't trust anything that comes out of official Notre Dame at all.

There isn't a bigger bs factory on earth than the one that has built up the mythology surrounding Notre Dame football for the last century.

Of course they're going to do anything in their power to protect this kid's image after he was their latest in a long line of demigods.

Maybe it was Te'o's girlfriend that Clint Eastwood was talking to at the RNC? :-k

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?
