ESPN senior columnist Gene Wojciechowski went on SportsCenter tonight and explained what happened with his Te'o story, which aired in October. Wojciechowski says he couldn't find an obituary for Lennay Kekua. He also couldn't find any records about a car accident. Obvious red flags. So why didn't Wojciechowski push further? Because Te'o told him to back off.

Penn State is still fresh in our minds, but this university is just as dirty and football-worshipping as the rest of them.
Does this get investigated if the story is Manti is the heir of a Nigerian prince? Where is somebody saying "welcome to the internet bro"
It isn't fair to drag Reagan and Troy into this.. a lot of truths and myths need to be addressed here, and they will be at noon PST tomorrow

Middling talent that scores big points from the talking heads because of his passion and how motivating he is and blah blah blah and all of that is gone now. You'll be hard-pressed to find an NFL player that's going to take this guy and his schtick seriously.
