    Well that sucks, because he'll be gone in the first. Then when he turns into a Pro-Bowl player down the road, I could care less about how he made a fake GF to win over America.

    You know what... I betcha Lance Armstrong is behind all of this. He hired somebody to start up this hoax on Te'o. Therefore, when he would admit he cheated, it would be the backburner to the Te'o story. Clever Lance, but i'm on to you.

    BTW, it looks like the "72" threads on Mante Te'o have all been merged together. Bravo! Good Job! It was getting a little out of hand having all those Te'o thread's.:clap:

    I won't be surprised if an "I'm gay" announcement is on the horizon. Strange that he was supposed to do that interview yesterday and then canceled. Makes me think maybe he was going to go on there and lie some more but someone took him aside and said "You're just going to make this worse. You need to come clean."

    He does have that gay look, and after all this I could see that happening.

    To me, there's only two things that would explain all this. 1) He's gay. 2) He's mentally ill.

    #2 seems less likely because you'd think it would have manifested itself in other noticeable ways aside from just this one big elaborate lie. #1 is very easy for me to believe. People who come from certain parts of the country or certain religious backgrounds will go to EXTREME lengths to hide their homosexuality.

    It still wouldn't explain why he chose to kill her off rather than just saying "we broke up"/"she moved away"/etc. But it would explain how the ball got rolling.

    I just can't see him going to these great lengths just for Heisman votes. It's certainly possible. But it's a monumentally stupid decision for a sane man to make. You'd have to know you were eventually going to get exposed and suffer consequences. I think there's something bigger at play in all this.

    If he is gay he should just come out, it's 2013, people accept you for what you are these days.

    Not like there aren't gays in pro sports, lots of them have come out after leaving their sport.

    Te'o could change a lot if he were to be gay and come out.
