Manti Te’o’s Dead Girlfriend, The Most Heartbreaking And Inspirational Story Of The College Football Season, Is A Hoax

by Timothy Burke and Jack Dickey

Quote:
Notre Dame's Manti Te'o, the stories said, played this season under a terrible burden. A Mormon linebacker who led his Catholic school's football program back to glory, Te'o was whipsawed between personal tragedies along the way. In the span of six hours in September, as Sports Illustrated told it, Te'o learned first of the death of his grandmother, Annette Santiago, and then of the death of his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua.

Kekua, 22 years old, had been in a serious car accident in California, and then had been diagnosed with leukemia. SI's Pete Thamel described how Te'o would phone her in her hospital room and stay on the line with her as he slept through the night. "Her relatives told him that at her lowest points, as she fought to emerge from a coma, her breathing rate would increase at the sound of his voice," Thamel wrote.

Upon receiving the news of the two deaths, Te'o went out and led the Fighting Irish to a 20-3 upset of Michigan State, racking up 12 tackles. It was heartbreaking and inspirational. Te'o would appear on ESPN's College GameDay to talk about the letters Kekua had written him during her illness. He would send a heartfelt letter to the parents of a sick child, discussing his experience with disease and grief. The South Bend Tribune wrote an article describing the young couple's fairytale meeting—she, a Stanford student; he, a Notre Dame star—after a football game outside Palo Alto.

Did you enjoy the uplifiting story, the tale of a man who responded to adversity by becoming one of the top players of the game? If so, stop reading...

Agreed.. either he comes out incredibly naive or more likely got caught up in a lie that will not go away.

Cynical minds want to convict.. mine included, but I think ND has done some leg work on this and are pretty confident there is way more to this story. The world now has been introduced to "CatFishing" or a whole different realm.

Yes... people are strange.. crazy and weird. Part of the reason it is so damn interesting to study them.. (by the way.. yes that will become stuck in my head..)

Agreed.. but it did short cycle the Lance nonstop chatter.. so we will have to wait for the next "story".

Zero2Cool (45m) : There is no emphasis, it's just a little bit of info. Take it or leave it. No harm.
Smokey (49m) : Zero, I believe that you and some others place too much emphasis upon data. no harm intended.
Zero2Cool (1h) : It’s the 1st time since 1970 all 4 conference championship teams finished the regular season on winning streaks of 4+ games
TheKanataThrilla (1h) : Salt mine. Love it.
TheKanataThrilla (1h) : The refs kept that game close. We should have blown them out early.
DarkaneRules (1h) : Hyde and Gunter are special and I'm hopeful D Ran gets back to where he can be
mi_keys (1h) : That whole forum is a salt mine. It's beautiful.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Burnett's back up, Kentrell Brice lead team in tackles.

uffda udfa (7h) : Great news.
Zero2Cool (11h) : Jordy has "legitimate hope" to play, per @RobDemovsky.
Zero2Cool (11h) : Packers had one call on defense if called, no issue, wans't called. I didn't watch OL so dunno. I watched WR's
Zero2Cool (11h) : Dallas OL had some holds weren't called and 2 defensive holds, not called.
uffda udfa (11h) : I think the Pi vs just a holding call is a legit complaint. Terrible call.
GoPack1984 (11h) : Dallas can't complain about the officials. They got away with so many defensive holding calls.
uffda udfa (12h) : Dallas radio postgame: Dallas wins 7 out of 10 times.
uffda udfa (12h) : Brice led Pack w/ 6 tackles including the hardest of the game.

DarkaneRules (13h) : we beat an arguably better team at their place without morgan burnett. still can't believe it

uffda udfa (13h) : Dallas play by play guy said we aren't best team.
uffda udfa (13h) : NBC is off the air down here. This is an OTA broadcast signal.
uffda udfa (13h) : Tornado warnings in Dallas area. Sign of aPACKalypse to Cowboys fans.
