    He's a mormon. His whole life is based on fiction.

    I don't think it solves anything either. But I do think it would gain him major sympathy points and turn him into a hero of sorts to many people. I'd go deeper, but it would no doubt get political/religious so I'll just leave it at that.

    not really. He outed himself 3 weeks ago when he told ND he got a call from the cell phone of his dead Girlfriend. Why would he do that if he was in on it? What does he gain from being in on it? Publicity? Sympathy? Nothing really worth a 2 year complex plan like your accusing him of masterminding.

    he was embarrassed of being in an online relationship, he lied about meeting her in person and all those quotes where he alludes to that. That's my take at least. People get catfished everyday. there's a show about it. Not surprising that it happened to an NCAA Football player.

    Yep, I wasn't catfished but it happens to the best of us where we fall for someone online. I remember a while back, I met someone on the internet, and even though I wasn't looking to date online, I developed a connection to her because I was really guarded and hated opening up, so all the things I couldn't say, I was able to her and that's what made me attracted to her, I didn't even care what she looked like. And I was always embarrassed about admitting to my friends that I met her online.
