I'll admit, though, I'm not a college sports fan, so maybe I don't fully appreciate how these things play out...but it certainly seems like this was a planned thing and that makes him look like a nut.
Concur.

If someone told me she died, I would definitely believe it. As strange as it sounds, you develop strong feelings for that imagery person. So I don't doubt his story.
Honestly, 2 weeks is a little different scope of trying to hold something like this together than the time frame being discussed with Te'o.

Who's going to do that? Unless there's suspicion of a crime, LEO isn't going to care about this. And unless he's willing to turn them over or someone hacks him, it would take a subpoena to get them.



If in fact he's gay and this whole thing was a cover for him not doing any chicks while he was in college, it will be interesting to see how the NFL deals with that. A high draft pick that's been outed as gay would be a media spectacle of extraordinary scale.
