Heres another article....
Lennay Kekua was a Stanford student and Cardinal football fan when the two exchanged glances, handshakes and phone numbers that fateful weekend three seasons ago...

..."They started out as just friends," Brian Te'o said. "Every once in a while, she would travel to Hawaii, and that happened to be the time Manti was home, so he would meet with her there. But within the last year, they became a couple.

"And we came to the realization that she could be our daughter-in-law. Sadly, it won't happen now."

About the time Kekua and Manti became a couple, she was injured in an auto accident. There were complications during her recovery. And it was also during her recovery that it was discovered Kekua had leukemia.

"That was just in June," Brian Te'o said. "I remember Manti telling me later she was going to have a bone marrow transplant and, sure enough, that's exactly what happened. From all I knew, she was doing really, really well."

So will ESPN or any of these other news outlets have the guts to investigate more and prove that he's full of charcoal? Or will it all be up to Deadspin?

ESPN is now reporting on this, running fully with ND and Te'os narrative that he was actually the innocent victim of a terrible hoax.

Look at that. Notre Dame's already telling lies. They knew according to their own press release that she was fake, yet were still talking about her at the national championship game.

@SportsCenter
Source tells Deadspin (who first reported Manti Te'o fake girlfriend story) that he's 80% sure Te'o participated in hoax.

Yup, he clearly never met her and was the victim of a horrible hoax.

Just watched the interview Te'o did about her back in early October. watching it in the context of what we know now, he comes off as a blatant liar. So many generalities.

Just imagine if Notre Dame had investigated this as vigorously as they did the girl that committed suicide after being raped by a football player!

You know, on second thought, I feel kind of bad for Manti Te'o. I mean, not only did AJ McCarron beat Te'o/ND for the Nat'l Championship, but Te'o couldn't even get a real gf, while McCarron was dating Miss Alabama.
