This is absolutely crazy. Manti Te'o, the Notre Dame star linebacker who finished second in Heisman voting this season and became a national story, may be a fraud. He made headlines after an emotional win following the death of his girlfriend - but is the Te'o girlfriend a hoax?
Deadspin posted a long, detailed investigation in the Te'o girlfriend hoax, and their findings are staggering. The story involves Twitter, family friends, a car accident, and a lot of lies.
Now, Notre Dame has confirmed the story, which certainly cast's Te'o's NFL future in doubt. Would you draft Te'o given Te'o's girlfriend is a hoax?
Is Te'o's girlfriend a hoax? See for yourself.
