    Shocked numb is more like it. Don't imaginary friends usually get left behind in junior high?

    This was either for publicity or did it because he is gay.

    If your Gay I assume you wouldn't want a story like that out. Just brings more attention to you. Its weird no matter what. The more I read the more it looks like Te'o is a scumbag tho

    That was dry wall. No one is dumb enough to risk their draft stock by attempting to run through plywood.

    I would assume the opposite. It would explain never being seen dating a girl. I'd imagine the pressure to be straight at one of the bastions of Catholicism would be huge. And that's on top of playing sport where the pressure is huge to begin with. It wouldn't start as a publicity thing. It would start just to make your day to day life easier. But as his star got bigger, more and more of his life would fall under the microscope. Eventually he would have to kill her off. Obviously, we don't know if he's gay, but it would be one thing that could take him from being thought of as a scumbag for making her up (or at least going along with it) to a more sympathetic character.

    Faith. What's the difference between this girl and Jesus really? What does it really matter as long as he believes it, right?Let's stop being intolerant of this guy's beliefs.

    Everything I've read points to Te'o knowing and going with it. Whether he is the mastermind that is yet to be determined.

    Well if he is trying to protect his identity so his family doesn't find out I can see why he would go to such lengths. Yeah the more I read the less I like the guy. Because if he isn't gay and created this to garner publicity for himself and the program is sick.
     
  14. If he is gay that does not excuse what he did.

    Of course not. But it is an explanation that is less offensive than "I made up a dead girlfriend so I could gain sympathy".

    Well he didn't want it to come out. It came out because Deadspin reporters went looking.

    My brother (who is gay) said to me last night he got gaydar vibes from this guy months ago when he saw him interviewed.....not that there is anything wrong with that :wink2:

    Very strange and why hasn't the national media picked up on this bigtime ? It looks like the "protect Notre Dame" machine is in full force to kill this weird story.

    Add to that the fact that he is a Mormon, and we all know how they feel about homosexuals.

    I personally think the other guy, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, was/is his GF. Hopefully he has the balls to just come out. Someone has to be the first. Will it hurt him in the draft? Yes, but he will still get drafted.

    I've always wondered this. The first person to do this, especially a young famous person.....will make A **** TON of money from GLAAD orginizations, magazines, bravo networks etc. They'd be the gay face of the nfl, the first one, and they'd be a pioneer.

    Maybe it was because the sight of you made her need to take a dump?

    The gay thing makes no sense at all...especially since ND students have written how its known he was dating other chicks on campus. Even if you are gay itd take way less work than this to convince your family who lives 3k miles away...and if you are making up a fake gf to hide from your family would you make up a fake gf who lives so far away? How would that convince them of anything?
