Manti Te’o Theories: Possible Motives And Explainations

Theory #1: The George Glass

As the originally report by Deadspin explains, there was a man by the name of Ronaiah Tuiasosopo involved. He, apparently, contacted the girl who’s image was referred to in the media as the fictitious Lennay Kekua.

    As a rabid ND fan and someone who really felt for Manti and his loss of his grandmother and the person he thought was his girlfriend in such quick succession, I’m going to withhold any judgement until all available facts are out there. As far as speculation goes I think that it’s conceivable that this kid was a victim and when his “loss” became national phenomenon he made up a story about how they met in person to spare himself the embarrassment of announcing to the world he had an online relationship with a woman he had never actually met and I don’t want to believe that he played any part in this hoax beyond that. As a ND fan who doesn’t miss a game and prays to “our lady” on game day for victory all I can say is this sucks..
